House Fire - Insulation between the logs of a Log Home

Asked April 12, 2013, 8:31 PM EDT

I had a house fire in my Log Home which is built with fiberglass insulation between the logs. The house had extensive smoke and water damage but the structure (minus 1/3 of the roof) is intact. The fire was 45 days ago with temps averaging slightly above and below freezing since the incident. Should the insulation be replaced?

Sorry for the delay in answering. Any insulation that got wet or damaged should indeed be replaced. The insulation may still work but probably has absorbed smoke which is very difficult to get rid of.

Good luck with your rebuild.
