The fruit of three decades of hard-won wisdom, Log Home Care and Maintenance will be an indispensable reference for log home owners for years to come. 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. A major portion of the book is given to the all-important discussion coats of sealants, detailing the differences between the competing products, and explaining how to choose and use them. Davis also presents 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. Perhaps most important is Davis's overarching theme-that intelligent maintenance will save log home owners countless hours and, just as important, many dollars. 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.A major portion of the book is given to the all-important discussion coats of sealants, detailing the differences between the competing products, and explaining how to choose and use them.
