I’m looking to purchase a log cabin the logs are from the 1860’s the structure is 5 years old. and the roof is 2 years old.
the original logs have a lot of moisture, some rot and small bug holes. Is there a product to temporarily clean the damage area and fill in the rot?

The first thing should be to borate treat the logs. You can fill the bug holes with Energy Seal Caulk. They make different colors to help match the wood. I’m not a big fan of filling in rotten spots, but if you must, use Wood Epox, Liquidwood or E-wood Putty. You can get these products and advice from Timeless Wood Care Products at 800-564-2987.
