We are having issues with water coming into our log home when it rains a hard rain. We were thinking of putting some polyurethane on the logs (outside only) to prevent log rot and infiltration. Anyone else have this issue?

I know that my neighbor uses stuff from permachink to seal his logs. Its a one time deal and its supposed to stop water pentration as well as log rot and decay. Also if there are any bugs (carpenter bees, termites, brown bettles etc).

Do NOT put polyurethane on your logs, it will ruin them and turn them jet black. Slightly pressure wash or sandblast the logs first if possible, don't do so much where it makes the logs spinter. Then get shellguard-rtu (ready to use) and spray it on. This will prevent beatle bugs, termites, wood decay/rot. After this perserative is used, fill in any checks with ewood or mbalm. Then do a coat of any type of stain you need. The stain will also protect it from outside elements.
