We are building a log home. The center section has a plank and beam cathedral ceiling supported by two 6×12 beams. The span is 12′ Our electrician drilled two 1” vertical holes along the centerline of the beams. I would like to repair the holes to restore the strength of the beam. I don’t want to add plates to the beams as appearance is important. Do you think epoxying rebar in the holes will restore the beam’s strength? If so, what type of epoxy would your recommend. Any other ideas woul

I doubt very much if these holes did anything to compromise the beams. Have a structural engineer look at them if you are still concerned. The epoxy will do very little to improve strength.
