Kiln-dried logs undergo a carefully controlled drying process in a specialized kiln, reducing moisture content to optimal levels. This not only minimizes shrinkage and settling but also helps prevent issues such as warping, cracking, and insect infestation. As a result, kiln-dried log homes boast superior stability and durability, making them an ideal choice for homeowners seeking long-lasting beauty and functionality.
