We build with Northern White Cedar in part because it naturally produces preservatives that make it one of the most decay and rot resistant of all woods, as well as insect tolerant. Many of the older log homes in Oklahoma are built with a less tolerent wood.
Based on the needs of your home, we offer:
*power washing, media blasting,
and chemical stripping.
*Chinking and Caulking repair.
*Some wood species, in particular yellow pine are less resistant to rot than others. A borate and mildew treatment may also be advised for you.
The decision for whole log or 1/2 log (siding) replacement is made primarily by the depth of the rot into your log.
