To chink or not chink?

If you have chinking that needs repairs but isn’t causing you any structural damage, then we may be able to patch your chinking. However, you need to know that the uv rays that your chinking absorbs daily effects it’s color. With synthetic chinking, the new patch might not match the existing chinking exactly. One option is to use a product called chink paint. Chink paint ties all the other lines in and makes the joints look new again.

If your chinking is pulled away or separated from the log in any way, this is a place where attention should be given. Those cracks allow water to enter and get trapped. This promotes rot which will quickly ruin your logs. This is an area where you need to consider re-chinking the entire structure. .
