We have work in conjunction with Ryan and his crews over the years to replace rotted log railings on many homes. They are a trusted partner in the log home business.
Log homes sometimes attract bats. We work with professional bat removal companies to "bat proof" log homes. One company we have worked with is Bats by Day. Bats by Day is a family owned and operated business. Owner, Jason Juoni and Operations Manager, Justin Juoni are here to help. They serve Northern Wisconsin.
