My wfie and I have just had a new log home completed near Rawlins, Wyoming. The logs are 8 in swedish cope style. There is an area where water is leaking into the great room from check cracks. The leak is next to a window, however, the window appears to be sealed and not leaking. The water is leaking in through check cracks facing upwards. The check cracks have been sealed with Log Builder brand sealant, however, they continue to leak through. The checks are not wide enough for backer rod.


Are the windows caulked in complete? If the checks are sealed it has to be coming in somewhere else.
