Log Chinking

Chinking is the material that fills the gaps between log joints to ensure the home is sealed from external elements as well as eliminating heat loss and air infiltration. Modern, flexible log chinking has replaced the traditional cement and daubing which was was often used on log homes over 200 years old.  Log construction has made huge advancements, so while chinking is no longer necessary, it still adds a timeless aesthetic many log home owners appreciate.  Contact us today to learn more about our log chinking options.
