Honest and hard working... Over time, I had researched many books, articles, log home maintenance companies, professionals, etc. on the proper and only ways to care for the logs. I knew ,that Dale knew, what he was talking about!

Excellent job on my Home. It actually turned out better than I thought since the Logs and decks were so dirty. It looks like a brand new log home. Efficient, neat, clean, on time, and did everything we agreed to. I couldn't be happier and would highly recommend this company.

Chinking Service
What is Chinking?
The "stuff" between the logs.

Today most chinking is a firm and flexible sealant for larger seams.

It gives the logs a finished & classy look but also it helps keep dust, pollen, wind, water, bugs, rodents, birds & bats from getting in between the logs or worse, inside the building.

Originally clay, mud & grass, then screen & mortar were used as chinking.


Logs like to move so Synthetic chinking is far superior to out dated chinking materials due to its flexibility, longevity, and color ranges offered.


Is chinking important? Yes, it completes the sealing of the building.
