Hopefully everyone is staying cool in this heat wave. This time of year we seem to get quite a few calls from people that are considering buying an existing log home or log cabin and they are looking for someone to do a log home inspection. We do offer log home inspection services throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin. There are a lot of conventional home inspectors out there but very few have experience in log homes. A log home inspection can save put you at east or save you future expense depending on what we may find. A majority of the log homes we look at are fine and may only need some re-staining and updating but there are always a few out there that may need some extensive work. Old roofing that has seen better days, clogged gutters and lack of care are the usual contributors to the problems we see. Most of the issues can be fixed but we will leave those decisions up to you if you end up buying an existing log home.
Another reason we get called for a log home inspection is to see if the existing building can be remodeled or added on to. Some have found the “almost perfect” log cabin in the right setting buy may just need a little more room to fit their family and lifestyle. We can give you some cost estimates before you make the purchase to help with your overall budget.
