Log Home Caulking Products
Log home caulking is a highly elastic sealant material that has little or no surface texture and is mainly used in smaller log joints. It is best to apply a log home stain that is compatible with the log caulking first because it will act as a primer for your log home caulking and will normally improve the overall adhesion of the log caulking material. Additionally, it makes the clean up process for the log home caulking material much easier. Finally, if your log caulking is properly installed, there should be very little maintenance work down the road.
Used primarily in smaller log joints, log home caulking is a highly elastic sealant which will allow forlogs’ expansions and contractions due to changing temperatures.
