A large part of the appeal of this log home is the chinking done both inside and outside.
This authentic 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 used for small cracks and crevices, log home chinking can cover much larger spaces, up to seven inches or more.
The benefits of chinking. Your log house construction needs to be protected between the logs and around any crevices. Chinking looks aesthetically pleasing and defines the log home's natural angles. However, the benefits go well beyond the look of the log cabin building. When you chink between the logs, you protect 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 will be a massive benefit to your wallet, making everyone living there more comfortable.
Caulking and chinking are the final building materials for a log house construction. And they are also among the most important. Log house chinking and caulking not only seal any air leaks and keep out the rain, but they also help to protect the log home from uninvited guests, including insects and decay. Chinking products can be used on both the interior and exterior sides of your log house wall system. But, like caulk, chinking products may need maintenance and reapplication over time. Chinking is best done after you've applied other finishes. It is always best to use chinking and stain from the same manufacturer to ensure compatibility. You'll be happy that you had a proper chinking job on your log house construction when you experience a lot of rain. Chink seals the log home and keeps water from entering and settling in places that it shouldn't. To protect a log home, you must consider how to keep it safe from water damage. You want to avoid dealing with the cost and hassle of rotting logs.
