Chinking & Caulking



Chinking is a latex sealant that resembles old fashion mortar. Energy seal is similar to caulking and has a light sand texture used to blend in with the stain on the logs. Unlike chinking, this process can be meticulous and extremely time consuming however it is a necessary action to address. The importance of chinking, caulking, or energy sealing is vital in that it prevents the dangers of moisture from entering seams of your structure, along with aiding your structure in energy efficiency. This procedure is also the most eco–friendly action that you can choose for your structure. While it truly does take practice, it is in one's best interest to always hire a professional as the alternative result will most likely end in an unattractive appearance and inevitable rot.
