A great log home will be built to last, but regular cleanings and fresh stain (or a clear coat) can go a long way to restore your cabin to its original beauty. Of course, some log cabins may require a more comprehensive restoration process. But once the work is done, your log home can look better than ever.

Why do you need log cabin restoration?
Log homes require a different type of maintenance and TLC than modern homes. The elements that contribute to weathering like wind, sun, water, and pests pose unique risks for log cabins. You’re trying to actively prevent nature from doing what it does to a fallen tree in the forest - nature would break the tree down and it would decompose.
- 1UV rays can dry out the exterior logs and crack, letting moisture in.
- 2Once moisture gets into your logs, mold and mildew starts.
- 3Pests move into dark and damp environments, too, and further degrade the wood.
That’s why the Mid America team is focused on prevention by keeping your wood sealed and joints water-tight - letting problems get out of hand will cause structural damage. We want your investment to last a lifetime!
Protect your investment
Routine inspection and maintenance will be the key to keeping the home you love in tip top shape and will save you from costly repairs. But even if your log home requires more than just a cleaning, Mid America Service Solutions will guide you on the right path.
While there are varying degrees of log cabin restoration, the main aspect of good home maintenance and long term preservation is making sure your log cabin is water tight and resistant to moisture and pests. Even the most prudent homeowner might find some discoloration from mold, mildew, or fungal growth during an annual inspection of your structure. If addressed early and swiftly, most problems can often be easily remedied.
Log Cabin Restoration Services:
Every 3-5 Years
How often should my log cabin be resealed?
Depending on the type of sealants, you should expect to reseal your home every 3-5 years to protect your home from sun & wind damage, pests, and moisture. Technology and advancements in log home sealing products could stretch that out even longer.
Things to keep in mind:
Your sealant should let water that is in the logs escape so it can dry while not allowing moisture into the log - your sealant needs to act like a one way exit.
Your sealant should also have insecticides to prevent a termite infestation, and also a contact insecticide so that carpenter bees don’t decide to make a nice little home in your nice little home.
