I have just started working for a local Log Home Builder as a punch-out. I have many handy man skills that are reputible. However, I do not have Log Home experience. My first project was given to me to patch/fill full length cracks (big) in the center of D-logs. What do you recommend? I need answers soon.Robert
Never fill the checks (cracks) in a log unless they are more than 1/2” wide, and running into a window, door or corner and allowing wind, water or bugs to enter the interior of the home. These checks are natural and should be left alone for the most part. If you fill them you need to inspect them 2-3 times pert year for breaks in the caulking. If water starts seeping down in behind this caulk it can cause major log rot over time.
