As the snow is still piling up around our log homes, it’s time for some spring checklists. For most log homes and cabins, the crowns (log ends) are the most vulnerable part on the logs because they stick out in the weather. They have several wet, freeze and drying out cycles that can cause them to weather over time quicker than any other part of a log structure.
After many years of neglect, this log home had many crowns in need of replacement. Don’t let this happen to your investment, your home.
- Seams and cracks that are on the up-facing side on the logs that might be catching water
- The growth rings on the ends of the log – are they separating or is there any discoloration or moss growing on the surface
After over 40 years of working on logs homes, Edmunds & Company crew members have developed a keen eye for what to look for but YOU, the log home owner, have the advantage of seeing your place month after month and year after year.
