LEADERS IN QUALITY LOG HOME RESTORATION AND LOG HOME REPAIRS
ALL REPAIR & CONSTRUCTION WORK
COMPLETED BY MEEKER BUILDERS LIC #394785
You want your log cabin or wood home to stay structurally safe and in good repair. You can pick a specific service or have us maintain your home on an annual basis.
Our long-term maintenance inspection plans allow you to have peace of mind. We will keep an eye on your home and alert you to wood-related features that needs attention. You can choose if and when the repair is performed.
A total refinish means taking the logs down to fresh wood by blasting off the existing stain and applying a new coat of stain.
Re-staining means simply cleaning the logs and applying another coat of stain.
Dry Rot Repairs
Wood only rots between a moisture content of 30 to 60%. Thus if you find a log that is rotten, it is due to the wood/log getting too wet. Generally this results from water reaching the logs in fairly large amounts.
If you have logs which are rotting (generally the lower courses of logs), then we must repair or replace them and then be prepared to take care of the root cause of water saturating the logs.
Wildland & forrest fires happen. We are here to help solve the issues that come with these disasters.
We have performed log replacement and log home repair on hundreds of log homes, cabins, and other wood structures throughout the years. We can take on any project no matter what your log home repair needs are.
During log replacement, we can match the new logs with the old logs using the same method and building style and precision as the original building. Sometimes there are problems log walls & roofs due to structural problems. We can assist you with a porch, roof exterior or log wall stiffeners to help resolve these issues.
Inspections & Consulting
A home built of natural logs is a structure, that reacts to its environment more so than a "stick" built conventionally framed home.
Because of this many factors need to be evaluated while inspecting a log home, with one of the most important being the overall design of the structure.
What works on a non-log home will not always work the same with a home built with logs. Roof overhangs are one good example; they are so important with a log home because they keep rain and the weather from affecting the logs and causing breakdown of finishes.
In 1990 we started the log restoration side of our business after being prompted by the clear need in our area and surrounding areas. Since that time we have been involved in the repair and refinishing of more than 400 log homes in the California area.
This work varies from project to project. We have consulted on structural issues with existing log homes, added porches for weather protection, chinked and caulked, weatherized, stabilized sinking log homes, reroofed, replaced existing windows, remodeled and added additions, rotted log replacements in a wall to replacing all the logs at a rotted out gable end wall.
We also media blast, borate and refinish log homes in California.
We have been involved in the sales and coordination of new log home projects. Some of the restoration projects have been on "Historic Log Homes". Many of them newer log homes with leaking or finish issues.
We have a long list of satisfied customers several of whom we have worked for more than 30 years on their log home projects as they have maintained & modified their homes. We can provide reference lists for recent projects both new log home construction and restoration work.
We have been involved in the realm of log homes over the past 35 years.
We have a passion for log homes and the preservation of existing ones. We will continue in this industry for years to come with the challenges and innovation that comes with excelling in the work we have a love for.
