Secrets of building of wooden houses:

German and Canadian technologies of "Curtaining of external corners"

Use of metal couplers for connection of logs in notches

Notches in the house corners (Canadian notch)

Use of a special dowel (thorn) in the Canadian notch

"Undercut": application of a special gap on an axis of logs

Drawing antiseptics on all latent surfaces of a log shell

Use of technological cuts for management of formation of cracks in a log

Making of apertures under joiner's products

Features of technology of building of houses from an oval-flatten (a semioval log)

Drawing of antiseptics on all latent surfaces of a log shell

Tree is a fine material for your house which will serve to you faithfully not one year. But tree also requires protection, and even since the very first day of building of shell for your log home or a bathhouse.

The basic problem is connected with occurrence of various mushrooms, mould and beetles.

When Your house will be built, you necessarily will cover it with antiseptic, probably with toners, or, probably, you will leave natural color - it is your matter of taste. But now we say what you should do necessarily, and at once, from the moment of making of the very first log of Your house.

Initially log has high humidity and then slowly gives moisture to atmosphere. It occurs both during felling and installation of shell on your territory and even during semiannual-annual shrinkage.

The wind blows on logs of a shell and natural ventilation smoothly reduces humidity of logs - it is an optimum process.

But, unfortunately, there are unpleasant exceptions in this process. They are connected with that fact that all latent surfaces (longitudinal grooves of logs, unloading cuts, cavities of bowls, dowels and grooves under them) are deprived of natural airing. There are perfect conditions for growth and development of all negative factors about which there was a speech above.

To resist these processes, drawing of antiseptics on all latent surfaces is required. And also it is necessary to put it not when shell will be disassembled for transportation to the customer, but during building process. It is difficult and tiresome, but this is a necessary condition of preservation of an initial condition of wood. Unfortunately, not all building companies pay to this question necessary attention.

Qualitative Finnish antiseptics - protection of your log shell

We understand the importance of the given procedure, therefore drawing of antiseptics on the latent surfaces is a compulsory procedure and is included into log shell cost.

Certainly, we do not save on quality and we use only modern European antiseptics, for example, presented on drawing 1.

In drawing 2 and 3 You can see process of drawing antiseptics on just cut down bowl and a longitudinal groove. On fig. 2 master paints the bottom part of a bowl and a groove for a dowel, and on fig. 3 top part of a bowl and a dowel (certainly the log is turned for convenience of drawing of structure).

At the contract conclusion on building of a log shell of a log home or a bathhouse necessarily demand the building company to include this point in the contract text.

Having addressed in the company "Log Russia" You don't have to worry about it, as the given point is already a part of obligatory actions.
