Product Overview

Log Jam®, the standard for synthetic chinking.

Davy Crockett’s log cabin was cozy…except that it wasn’t. He spent a good amount of time plastering mortar into those chinking joints every year. Old-time mortar cracks and crumbles, allowing in wind, bugs, dust, rain and pollen. That’s why Sashco created Log Jam® Chinking, the standard in synthetic chinking. Its texture recreates that old-time mortar look while sealing your log home from vermin and wind alike. It stretches and won’t let go when your logs move. With Log Jam® chinking, you can keep the cozy feel and rustic look without compromise.

Authorized Sashco dealer located in Livonia outside of Metro Detroit Michigan. We ship to all 48 states. Free shipping on cases and 5 gallon pails of Sashco Log Jam chinking. Look no further for the lowest price in Log Jam chinking for contractors and log home owners.

Log Jam Chinking is a flexible sealant that is used to seal the joints of log homes. No matter what type of log property you own, it is important to use chinking, a synthetic mortar, to keep the log joints sealed. We sell single tubes or broken cases of Log Jam

Cracked Chinking: If a log joint is deeper than 1/4 in. and backer rod was not used, there is a very good chance that the chinking will crack. What happens is the logs will naturally expand and contract and since there is no bond breaker to allow the chinking to stretch in the middle, the caulking or chinking cracks in the center.

Treatment: 
Depending on the condition of the caulk or chinking, the material could be completely torn out, backer rod installed and then caulk or chinking reapplied. An alternative to removing all of the material is to run a length of packaging tape down the middle of the joint, over the chinking material as shown on the right (the tape will act as a bond breaker). Then cover the old caulking and packaging tape with a new layer of caulk or chinking as shown.
