This tiny log cabin has chinking between the logs which is part of the aesthetic appeal. Chinking is similar to caulking though the two techniques are different. Chink is worked into the seams and the creases of the log home for multiple reasons. It is made with fine sand granules and latex polymers. Unlike caulk that's used for small cracks and crevices, log home chinking can cover much larger spaces up to seven inches and more.
The benefits of chinking. Your log house construction needs to be protected between the logs and around any crevices. Some people think that chinking looks aesthetically pleasing and defines the log home's natural angles. However, the benefits go well beyond the look of the log cabin. When you chink between the logs, you are actively protecting your log house construction from invaders such as bugs. This is especially important for log homes because when not properly cared for they are susceptible to damage from insects and rodents. It also prevents the cool or warm air inside the log home from escaping. Keeping your cooling and heating bills low is going to be a huge benefit to your wallet, and it makes everyone who lives there more comfortable.
Properly chinking your log house construction will help to ensure that your log cabin stands up to weather conditions especially a lot of rain. Chink seals the log home and keeps water from entering and settling in the log cabin in places that it shouldn't. To protect a log home, you must factor in how to keep it safe from water damage. You don't want to deal with the cost and hassle of rotting logs.
