hi, our house built in '41 from trees on site, 5-6-7 inhes in dia. It was painted before we bought it 15 yrs ago, maybe when it was built? who knows. we have rot,that after chipping away the bad material ,makes the front of the log flat. so 75% of the log is solid. is there a way to restore the Look of the log, so after repainting will look normal? thanks


You can chisel the log back to half and apply a new half log face, but if thereis more than one log in the same area it will need to be structurally fixed behind the logs. I would recommend that you call Dave at 877-788-5647 and discuss this with him.
