If you own or have recently purchased a log home or getaway log cabin in the Sacramento area, then you know the joy and excitement the log home lifestyle offers. Once the newness wears off, however, you might notice a few things happening to your home. That gorgeous color of your logs might start to fade. Cracks or damage can appear in logs, getting bigger over time. And inside the home, water leaks or drafty winters are making your stays much less comfortable. Is this normal? Yes – but it doesn’t have to be that way. Log homes are unique – and the maintenance services they require are unique as well. A local contractor or handyman just won’t cut it, you need a Sacramento log home repair specialist to help you with yearly maintenance and repair issues that are normal to these kinds of homes.
Maintenance for log homes isn’t any more expensive that “normal” homes. It’s just different. Normal maintenance services can include staining, restoring, repairing, refinishing, caulking, weather sealing and similar tasks that are crucial for the life of the home – and often overlooked by general contractors lacking the knowledge it takes to maintain these unique structures. Be sure to check out the website of any company you are thinking of hiring to evaluate the depth of experience and knowledge they possess, as well as ask to see photos of projects they’ve worked on and references from former customers.
