We carry their Log Builder Sealant, their Conceal Sealant, and Bor8 Cobra Rods. Use these products to seal the in between edges of your Full Log Wall or Log Siding, protects against the elements and prevents moisture from seeping in between the logs and casing problems.

It's simply the best chinking by every measure: longevity, appearance, performance and ease of application. Perma-Chink is a flexible, textured chinking that seals the open gaps between logs to eliminate heat loss and air infiltration. Even though it looks and feels like traditional mortar, it's not. Perma-Chink is a pure acrylic that adheres to logs and stretches to maintain a tight seal by following log movement. Like all of Perma-Chink's products, Perma-Chink is easy to apply and comes backed by the support of our knowledgeable, friendly staff. When you use Perma-Chink, professional advice is never more than a phone call away.
