Log homes are among the most beautiful of all types of houses. They have a nice, rustic look, but they still require regular care and maintenance. The type of care they require is different than that of traditional homes. Since logs are natural products they often crack or shift slightly over time. These cracks can be repaired and if necessary you can have an entire log home restoration in BC.
Tips for Log Home Restoration in BC
First and foremost, log home restoration in BC is best left to professionals. Experts with years of experience will be able to restore your log home to its original beauty. There are some things you can do to make the process easier.
Gather as much information as you can about the home. For instance, records of the original builder’s name, the type of logs that were used and the finish that was applied will all be useful pieces of information for log home restoration in BC.
Sometimes this information is not available, especially if you just purchased the home or if the home has gone through several owners over the years. An experienced log home restoration company will typically be able to determine the type of logs that were used in the original structure.
Make note of any improvements or repairs that you completed or know about the home. You will also need to point out any areas that are in need of repairs. If there is any structural damage it is important to let the repair company know about it so they can include this in their estimate.
