California Log Home Chinking Solutions
Chinking is the mortar-like material used between the logs that stops air, insects and moisture from infiltrating the log home structure. With the help of a backer rod, log home chinking also helps with log home insulation. With a wide variety of types and colors available, log chinking is often used as a design feature, with colors chosen to contrast or compliment the wood and create a desired look.
In the old days, chinking was a mixture of clay, lime, and sand (and anything else that could be sourced locally) to help hold the mixture together. The downside of that style of chinking was that it hardened to a point where it was non-elastic, and ended up pulling away from logs and cracks, leaving gaps and allowing water and insects free access.
Today chinking is made of an acrylic, elastic compound that adheres to the logs and can stretch and contract as logs settle and move seasonally. It can be used for new log home construction and can be applied to log home restoration projects to seal gaps and ensure that the homes are sealed soundly for many more years.
