Log home chinking
Log home chinking is a process that involves filling the gaps between logs with an elastomeric sealant. This sealant acts as a barrier to keep out water, air, dust and insects. Chinking helps to preserve the structural integrity of the log cabin, increasing its longevity and keeping it looking great for years to come. Additionally, chinking can also help to reduce heating and cooling costs by improving the cabin’s insulation.
Log replacement may be necessary if logs become rotted or infested with pests such as termites, carpenter ants, or beetles. We are able to replace any damaged logs in order to restore your cabin to its original condition without compromising on quality.
