From the Back Cover
Smart care of the log home begins with understanding the materials, and Jim Davis starts with the basics, explaining why logs make good homes, demystifying the science of wood, and talking about the properties of the various types of wood and how they respond to changes in temperature and humidity. He follows with advice about inspecting and designing log homes, outlining approaches that will head off trouble before it sets in. Also included is a complete and easy-to-follow plan of regular maintenance, addressing problems related to everything from weather to general cleaning to fending off the assaults of insects. Final chapters cover replacement of entire logs, and evaluating contractors. Most important is Davis's overarching theme - intelligent maintenance will save log home owners countless hours and, just as crucial, many dollars.
Log Home Care and Maintenance features:
* Complete instructions for dealing with the main enemies of a log home; sun, moisture, insects, and neglect.
* Complete remedial instructions for owners with existing structural problems.
* Charts, recommendations on maintenance and sealant product types, and checklists for prospective buyers of previously-owned log homes.
For longtime and new log home owners alike, as well as anyone considering the purchase of a new or used log home, Jim Davis's guide is essential.
