Log Home Chinking
All of our log home sealants are formulated with premium acrylic latex. These log home sealants are stable through freeze thaw cycles, resistant to chemicals, salt spray, water vapor and mildew, are suitable for both interior and exterior use, and will accept any stain we sell.
Synthetic chinking will seal wide gaps in traditional log homes, and simulates classic chinking.
Homes move. Window frames pull away from the siding or doors shift against the brick. They move when the temperature changes, the rain falls, the wind blows or the earth quakes. Most caulks can’t take it – they dry hard and crack. That’s why you need Big Stretch® high performance water-based sealant. Its powerful adhesion and extreme elasticity will stick, twist, bend, compress, and stretch – more than 500% of original size! – to handle most any movement your home can dish out, all without cracking.

Davy Crockett’s log cabin was cozy…except that it wasn’t. He spent a good amount of time plastering mortar into those chinking joints every year. Old-time mortar cracks and crumbles, allowing in wind, bugs, dust, rain and pollen. That’s why Sashco created Log Jam® Chinking, the standard in synthetic chinking. Its texture recreates that old-time mortar look while sealing your log home from vermin and wind alike. It stretches and won’t let go when your logs move. With Log Jam® chinking, you can keep the cozy feel and rustic look without compromise.
