What is chinking?

Chinking is the material inserted between the joints of logs and other woods. The technology has come a long way from mortar, horse hair, mud, and newspaper. Today’s chinking is latex based, comes in many colors, and is flexible to the seasons and moisture content of the wood it is bonded to. Applied correctly, chinking should last the life of the home.
