Log Home FAQ

“Are log homes fire-resistant?”

Q: Are your log homes fire-resistant?

Yes. In fact several studies have shown that log homes are VERY fire resistant. Research has proven that due to the diameter and size of the timber used that the average house fire can’t access the logs as source for fuel.

This means in general log homes are VERY resistant to catching fire or burning. In 2001, housing industry expert Dr. Dalibor Houdek stated, “My experimental research of a [typically constructed] log wall proved that it can achieve a very high fire resistance rating by itself, and additional steps to increase its fire resistance are not necessary.”
