Log Home Chinking

Log Home ChinkingThe final step to the restoration and finishing of your home is the application of the sealants, notably chinking and caulking. All logs move at some time, that’s why this step is critical, chinking is specifically designed to absorb most movement when logs lose the moisture causing them to shrink and the joints to expand.

Proper chinking creates a tight seal, keeping moisture and insects from seeping into your home.

By contracting Summit Restoration LLC to chink your home, your chinking will be completed by our crews trained and experienced in the technique of applying chink precisely, resulting in the perfect seal, providing the best defense against air, water, and pest infiltration.

Chinking is the best solution to prevent log rot by permanently sealing out the elements. Improperly installed caulking or chinking is one of the primary causes for log rot, so for best result – have your home professionally chinked by Summit Restoration, LLC.


Log Home ChinkingChinking the log joints offers an opportunity to customize the look of your home in many ways. You could brighten the interior with a light color, use a contrasting color or choose a color to simply blend with the color of your stain. We also use caulking to properly seal cracks, checks and butt joints.

Remember, chinking comes in colors to blend seamlessly into your logs or in colors to contrast of chinking. So not only does chinking add character to your home, chinking is also very long lasting and low maintenance.

When applied properly, chinking can pay off many times over in comfort, preservation, and the resale value of your home.
