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
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.
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.
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
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.
