CHECK MATE 2: Check Filler/Sealer

Check Mate 2 is an outstanding water resistant sealant that prevents water and air infiltration through pronounced cracks (called checks) in logs, timbers and wood siding. Caulking is an obvious solution to this problem, but caulking does not work because of limits in adhesion and weatherability.


CHINK-PAINT: Paint for Chinking

Chink-Paint is an elastomeric, textured coating for renewing or changing the color of chinking. This makes it ideal for giving a facelift to your home by brightening the appearance of old, dirty chinking or altering the color of existing chinking.

PERMA-CHINK: Log Home Sealant

Since 1981, Perma-Chink Log Home Sealant has proven itself on thousands of chinked and chinkless style homes to become the most widely applied chinking in the world. It’s simply the best chinking by every measure: longevity, appearance, performance and ease of application.


QSL SEAL: QSL Caulking

Superior flexibility and elongation makes long-lasting QSL the premium caulk available for the construction industry.

SHELL-GUARD: Termiticide, Insecticide, Fungicide

Shell-Guard provides the ultimate protection against insects and wood rot for your log home. This new generation of preservative combines the well-known effectiveness of borates with a glycol system that increases the penetration into the wood to enhance the action of the borate.


WOODSMAN: A Waterborne Sealant for Use During Log Stacking

Woodsman is an internal sealant and adhesive that is applied between logs during construction. With better stretch and adhesion than other sealants, Woodsman is ideal for providing a long-lasting barrier against insects, air and water infiltration between the logs.
