It is not uncommon for log homes to develop a problem with air leaking into the interior. They can become drafty. With cold winters and hot summers, it’s important to keep air leaks to minimum for the comfort reasons.
But there can be an even a bigger issue when it comes to air leaks… they can turn into water leaks as well and this can lead to rot.
Edmunds & Company can help you figure out where those often-illusive leaks originate from and we can resolve the problem.
Air leaks and log buildings are not a good combination.
The Solution – Get those gaps filled
Leaks, whether they are air or water leaks, are holes in the building what should be fixed. Large gaps need to be filled with chinking. Determining whether or not it is worth the expense of chinking your logs depends on if you use your log home as a cabin for summer use only or as a year-round, heated home.
No matter what, if your logs are leaking water, something needs to be done sooner than later. This is a much more serious issue than air leaks.
