Log homes are beautiful but they do require a little maintenance. If the exterior of your log home is left unprotected then the wood will begin to break down due to exposure from the sun, wind, rain and snow. Protecting your investment with a quality stain is the first step in a good maintenance plan for your log home or cabin. Additionally, selecting the proper material to seal your exterior log joints is a must in order to keep bugs on the outside and an energy efficient home on the inside. Below you will find some helpful hints to guide you through your log home finishing products selection process.
Log home stains are primarily available as either a water base or oil base material. Water based stains are nice because they have very little odor and are easy to clean up. These types of stain materials are designed to remain on the surface of your wood. In contrast, oil based stains are typically designed to penetrate into your wood. Oil based stains work well because they are very natural looking and can be easy to apply.
Log home caulking is designed to specifically handle the expansion and contraction of your logs during and after the log home building process. Caulking is typically used in joint sizes ranging from 1/4” to 3/4” wide. Most homeowners prefer that it blend in with their wood.
Chinking is designed to stand out from your wood which is why it has a heavy texture and is typically installed in 1''- 4'' joints. It is very common on western log homes but can be found in the east as well. The most common color is mortar white because it resembles the look of old time cement.
Remember, protecting your log home or cabin does not have to be difficult if you have the right answers and the best products available.
