Wood Decay and Log Placement

Decay is a natural process for any living matter that is exposed to the elements. Wood is no exception. When a tree is cut down, debarked and left unprotected it starts the decay process. Log homes are commonly sold with a preservative treatment to help protect the logs. However, over time these preservatives can break down for multiple reasons (UV rays, rain, sleet, snow, bugs etc.).  Learn More
