Why Do I Need a Log Home Restoration?
Let’s guess… Your log cabin is leaking. Rodents and insects are getting into your cottage. You’ve found some rot. Or perhaps, your log home simply doesn’t look as nice as it used to.
Log homes require unique protection. Their porous timbers are exposed to the elements…. UV light and dirt eat their sealants daily… Preserving the log surface of your home is literally a matter of protecting your investment from the elements and rot. For a million reasons (Chris explains many of them on his “Log Home Restoration FAQ” page), without proper ongoing maintenance, a log home will simply not stay warm, dry, and attractive.
The good news is that once your log home is professionally restored, simple ongoing log maintenance can keep it gorgeous and comfortable…indefinitely.
What is a Log Home Restoration?
Though each log home is different, a ‘typical’ Top Choice Log home restoration includes:
Log rot inspection and replacement
Water damage repair
Total leak mitigation
Pressure washing and media blasting to clean log surfaces
Several coats of Sascho clear-coat or stain
Extra clear-coat on surfaces with increased UV exposure
Repair vs Restore…the Econonics
If you pay to simply repair a leak in your log home, that leak will stop. But another will likely start dripping. If you restore your log cabin properly, (re-chinking, exterior cleaning, properly applied sealants) you shouldn’t have any more leaks. Your time and money will be spent either way.
A professional Top Choice log home restoration and maintenance program will leave you free to enjoy your comfortable, gleaming log home. A series of patch-work repairs will find you frustrated every time you discover a new problem. Meanwhile, you’ll risk damage to furnishings as the elements and their furry friends get inside.
We are “do the job right, then rest easy,” kind of people. What kind are you?
The Right Products…Last
We only use high-quality finishes that will stand up to harsh Michigan weather, lumber that has been properly aged, and meticulous, experienced craftsmen. Because it’s the right thing to do, we choose blasting media that is largely biodegradable (examples are: corn cobb, walnut shell & baking soda). We don’t cut corners as we find you almost always have to double back. High-end log home sealant manufacturers like Sashco work with us to fine-tune their products. We’ve worked hard to become Northern Michigan’s log home restoration experts and, over decades, have learned what works.
A Lasting Relationship
With permanent locations in both Northern and West Michigan and expert, full-time craftsmen, we’re not going anywhere. We guarantee each of our full log home restorations for two years. After that we suggest an extended warrantee to let us protect the exterior of your log home on an ongoing basis. You can simply stop worrying about it and focus on loving your log home!
