On this beautiful log home near La Crosse, WI we ran into some of the worst decay related to leaky windows that we had ever seen.
This home is located on the bluffs looking over the Mississippi River and consequently, it gets storms coming out of the valley with great force.
The upper windows on the gable end of the house were leaking and after years of this, the logs around the base of the windows became so rotten they needed to be replaced.
As you can see – we had to remove whole logs in this area. In conjunction with replacing logs, we worked to make sure the windows got flashed and caulked properly.
This was an unusual project and it was interesting to see it come together. Leaking can be a big problem with log homes. Make sure these issues are noticed and remedied quickly, even if it means getting up on a ladder to check out problem areas. Call 715-373-5744 and let us help solve your log home problems.
