Protecting wood with antiseptic

Wood is a durable and environmentally friendly material that, if used properly, can last several hundred years. To prevent fungi, mold or insects, it is important to protect the logs already during the construction stage.

A good antiseptic can prevent several problems of a wooden house:

  • Wood is constantly exposed to the UV radiation due to which the material loses its original appearance – a characteristic gray tint appears;
  • Due to insufficient ventilation, changes in ambient temperature and high humidity, wood may be affected by fungus or mold. This leads to the formation of bluish and greenish spots, and the beginning of decay.

Already at the production stage, we apply wood protection to all logs and hidden surfaces (grooves, cuts, and channels). Our masters know the specifics of wood protection and use time-tested solutions for this procedure. We take into account the quality of application and the thickness of the applied protection layer.

Our manufacturing site is in the open air, therefore in persistent rainy weather, we spray protecting solution over the logs. This process is especially important for large log houses as it can take several months. Once the frame gets installed on the foundation, we mount the roof, either permanent or temporary, in order to protect the building from rain and snow.


Painting the house with finishing compounds should be done when the logs have partially dried out. It is advisable to plan this work for dry and warm weather. Painting time is difficult to estimate in advance – it depends on the condition of the house and the local weather. For example, when assembling a log house in spring, painting can be carried out already in early summer. And when assembling in fall, it is advisable to postpone the procedure until next summer.

When choosing a finish composition for exterior painting, choose the paints with UV, insect and moisture protection. Depending on the shade, they can be colorless or tinted. Popular interior compositions include wood resins, wax and flax-seed oil due to their environmental friendliness and the ability to give a special decorative effect to the wooden structure.
