Chink & Caulking

"Chinking and energy seal caulking not only add beauty and character, they also protect your logs."

  • Caulking prevents moisture from running deep into logs through cracks (checks). 

  • More than 25% moisture content can allow for wood decay fungus to grow.

  • Properly using a foam backer allows caulking to stretch without tearing.  Cracks can have 200-400% of motion.

  • Chinking prevents moisture, wind, and bugs from entering between joinery of logs.

  • Chinking is a good way to reduce heating/AC expenses and bugs!!

  • Chink and caulk can be stained to match or choose a color to contrast log stain.
