Schedule a Log Cabin/Home Inspection by a certified inspector

"We asked David to conduct an inspection of our log home prior to listing it for sale. Having been in the construction trades and as a commercial site supervisor in the south, I’ve never been much impressed by home inspectors. Now I have. Thank you sir. Excellent job"

"David inspected a log cabin for me in Colville. He was very observant and insightful. He gave me a good idea of the condition of the logs. He was also able to identify major issues that I was not able to notice when I initially looked at the home. I would highly recommend Awesome Day Inspections"

Log Cabin/Home Certification 

Log homes require more training and experience than regular sided homes. Logs come with there own set of 

problems and deficiencies. Internal rot, wood destroying insects, log setting and more can create hidden problems that a trained inspector might deduce. Often a hidden problem creates a cascading visual deficiency that can be seen in another area of the home.  Log homes are meant to settle in place. But did the company allow for enough time before the final tightening of the logs? Hire a certified Log inspector who understands the process of log home development, placement, settlement and ongoing maintenance. Log home inspections add a little more cost to a normal home inspection but that extra time spent is worth the expense

Here you can see how rain water travels from the roof to the ground splashing upwards to create this discoloration and deterioration of the log finish.

Using a rubber mallet, I can often find rot within the log by sound.

Often the lowest log is the most exposed to moisture and insect damage.

Any log protruding past the eave line will receive the most rain water. Without constant maintenance these logs will rot as they have in this image.
