Chink Materials

Better Than Logs™ Synthetic Chinking has proven itself on thousands of chinked style homes. It’s simply the best chinking by every measure: longevity, appearance, performance and ease of application.

Better Than Logs™ Chinking is a flexible, textured chinking that seals the chink flange areas between the Better Than Logs™ Siding boards to properly simulate and support the appearance of “real” logs. Even though it looks and feels like traditional mortar, it’s not. The Better Than Logs™ Chink is a pure acrylic that adheres to the siding boards and stretches as needed to maintain a tight seal.

Like all of our products, the Better Than Logs™ Chink is easy to apply and comes backed by the support of our knowledgeable, friendly staff. When you use Better Than Logs™ Products, professional advice is never more than a phone call away. Application can be done by the homeowner or a professional contractor. We stock a full line of application accessories or can refer a professional applicator in your area.
