While most of the time checks are nothing to worry about and just add character and charm to the look of your home, when they reach a certain size they can cause problems and should be addressed by a log home professional.
A large crack, which is also called a split, is more severe and often passes through the diameter of the log. These cracks or splits indicate damage to the log that could have come from improper drying techniques, lack of proper maintenance, or carrying too much weight. Logs or beams with severe cracks should be replaced or repaired as soon as possible to maintain the structural integrity of your home.
