Chinking is the sealing between the logs. Modern chinking is made by Sashco and Permachink. Pictured here is mortar chinking used before 1980 and still found on old log cabins.
Stain for log homes comes from many different companies. Log Home Finishing uses stain and finishes from Sashco, Permachink, and Sikkens. Log Home Stain should be re-coated every 2 - 5 years depending on the product used and environmental factors.
Log Home Finishing uses media blasting with walnut shell, corn cob, or crushed glass to remove old stain and finish and prepare your logs or wood prior to applying new stain. Further prep work on logs and decks can also be done with hot water and chemical or sanding of the logs to prepare prior to staining.
