The problem with finding rot in your logs is it’s discouraging and confusing. What is the best way to fix the problem? There are all sorts of products available for do-it-yourself fixes but they don’t address the underlying problem – ROT.
Edmunds & Company has been doing this type of work since 1978 and in our experience, we have found that they best way to fix the problem of rotten logs is to remove the rot and install a new log.
When the rot makes its way through more than 50% of the log, typically it is necessary to replace the whole log. In the photo to the left, the entire stack of crowns had to be replaced. This entailed cutting out the rot and then scribing the replacement logs so they neatly fit on top of each other. Chinking was carefully done to make sure there were no gaps between the logs. This prevents moisture from getting in and rot from getting established.
