Chinking helps protect your log home from pests and moisture damage and helps insulate your home, keeping drafts out and your heat in. Chinking is an extremely efficient way to reduce your heating costs, insulating as well as keeping air and moisture out.
The final step to the restoration and finishing of your home is the application of the sealants, notably chinking and caulking. All logs move at some time, that is why this step is critical. Chinking is specifically designed to absorb movement when logs lose moisture causing them to shrink, thus causing the joints to expand.
Chinking itself is an art form. Not only does it require skill, experience and an extreme amount of patience, it also requires proper application to ensure durability and long lasting adhesion. Our years of experience, along with our talented crew will provide you with the best chinking for your home.
