Log homes and log cabins are intricate wood structures that need careful applications of sealants, caulks and chinking to ensure stability, protection from the elements and a long-lasting hold. We offer a fantastic selection of specially treated log caulks and sealants that are made to blend in with common stain colors and provide a solid layer of protection from natural log swelling, shrinking and settling.
The beauty of a log home or log cabin is the precise fit of the logs. Unfortunately logs don’t come perfectly sized and over time every piece of lumber or wood will naturally swell, shrink and move. However, there are a number of high quality specially treated log caulks and wood chinking that will provide a flexible, mortar-textured sealant to keep the frame stable and foul weather outside. We offer Sashco and Chinker’s Edge caulks and sealants to provide high quality protection for your log home or cabin.
Essentially, sealants, caulk and chinking act to stop air, insect and moisture infiltration into your log home. This is important for insulating your log home or log cabin from winter weather conditions and the natural swelling and shrinking that occurs with wood over time. As any home builder knows a log home or cabin will undergo a settling process after construction and having a durable and strong caulk or sealant in between the logs will assist in reducing the movement of the wood and keep your frame stable.
We offer several varieties of caulk, sealant and chinking to handle every stage of the log home building process from laying the foundation and constructing the frame to brush over chinking that coats existing caulk and seamlessly fits with any wood color or stain so the caulk won’t stand out and disturb the look of your log home or log cabin.
