Where & How To Buy A Log Home?

 

On a special note there are a few facts which you already know; Log Homes have that unique warm and comfy majestic appearance as well as a charm no other home can declare. Not only are log houses captivating they are very rugged and impressive, energy-efficient and they also have very good resale value.

As a certified home inspector I want to bring out a few facts about buying and living in a log home. For those who are looking over this and live in any type of log home, use this information and facts to take care of your home, but if you happen to be in the process of buying a log house think about these facts when you are looking and you are ready to make an offer to buy.

I’ve had the privilege of looking at and inspecting log homes which are more than one hundred years old and are generally in good shape simply because they happen to have been well maintained, although I’ve also looked at fifteen yr old log houses that already have critical failure around the wood logs mainly because of inferior engineering and maintenance.

This information is regarding log homes that are less than 30 years of age. There are many different kinds of logs and styles and designs but a majority of the actual water troubles and maintenance really are basically the exact same. Let me reveal the top 10 listing of things to look for if you are buying a log home.

  1. Hire a local home inspector to check out your home that has experience with log properties
  2. Look and see if you can find any timber decay or any type of water damage and mold on the top of the house logs especially in all the ends and corners on the house logs. You may need to make use of a ladder to examine a majority of these areas
  3. Check all of the logs for wide cracks between the home logs as well as chinking, a little bit of splitting of your house logs is to be expected
  4. Look to see if you can find any damage from insects; Look along the bottom for termite or pest problems. Always look across the outside walls in addition to all of the gables and overhanging edges and trim for tiny round holes created by carpenter bees
  5. Check the decks and porches to be certain they’ve been connected and flashed properly; it is extremely common to find water damage underneath decks
  6. Check the ground clearance, 10 in. is actually recommended; but do not accept any of the logs touching the earth
  7. Log structures will likely shrink with time, check all of the interior as well as the exterior doors to be certain they close and open correctly
  8. Make sure every one of the windows works correctly
  9. Look for darkening logs, mold or possibly mildew on the log structure
  10. Check all the accessible rafters as well as the framework specifically where the roofing surface area sits over the logs and there needs to be at least an 18″ or more overhang over every log house

 

Log homes are extremely energy efficient; the actual thermal mass within the logs happens to be the primary factor. The logs really have excellent insulation efficiency which allows the Heating and cooling unit/ units to keep the comfort level inside of the house.
