Are your railings rotted or falling apart?
If you live in Minnesota, there is a good chance that your log railing is built with pine logs. Unfortunately, if left untreated pine logs only have a lifespan of 4-5 years. This can mean ongoing maintenance for years to come and not only will these railings become unsightly, but they can become unsafe.
At LakeLife Homes we only build log railings with Northern White Cedar. Our railings have a life span of 40-50 years (even untreated) because of their natural resistance to decay. The durability also helps in its ability to resist bugs as white cedar has a natural chemical bug resistance where pine does not. Another great benefit of cedar over pine is it’s more resistant to cracking. Even once cracked, cedar will be less vulnerable to extensive future damage caused by cracks. Northern White Cedar lasts 10 times longer than pine.
