Preventing problems and dealing with them when they occur.America has hundreds of thousands of log homes, and every one of them presents unique maintenance issues that differ from homes of traditional stick-frame construction.

Now he shares his wisdom on how to preserve and protect your beautiful log home. This newly revised edition takes advantage of all the recent techniques and products―it’s a state-of-the-art guide to identifying, diagnosing, and solving problems so you’ll enjoy many trouble-free years in your log home.Gary Schroeder, a former forester and consultant, has also been a custom log home builder and restoration contractor. He and his wife, Kathy, started Schroeder Log Home Supply, Inc., now a leader in the field, in 1986.  Full color illustrations throughout

I wish the book were written with a little more detail for this first time log home owner, but for those that understand "maintenance" lingo, this book would be really great. I do use the "pest" section often to identify bugs I find.

Bought this and another log home care and maintenance book. Both were really a huge help in repairing our newly bought 1970 Log House.Very easy to follow and full of steps to take in repairs that you do not even know as a new log home owner.

This is THE log home bible. Of the three books I purchased, this one and only this one has everything we need to know about renovating our 100 year old cabins. And the most surprising information was that my husband agreed with me. And this guy is hard to sway, on any issue. The best twenty bucks we have spent on this whole property. You simply cannot start a reno or new project without this book. Save yourself the time, money and stress and GET this book. The only thing not covered is where to buy the product you need. Without showing any favoritism, the author mentions great products and then leaves the searching up to you. Not a problem. That's why we have the internet. If I could give more stars for this book, I would.

This book has some of the greatest information available for log home owners or people looking to build a log home. It is my go to book for our log home when I have a concern or want information on something regarding my home. Down to earth and easy to understand every page.

Excellent book with numerous photographic illustrations and very well written and containing information on current refinishing techniques and products to utilize. Highly recommended and worth every dollar of the purchase price.

lots of information about log home. easy to read. plenty of illustrations. very helpful to anyone with a log home.

A must have for any log home owner. I learned a lot reading this book and it helped me ensure I hired the right contractor for our cabin maintenance.

Good practical guide for the log home owner. If you have a log house or cabin, this book tells you what you need to know.
