Product Description

Since most logs move within the first few years after building due to moisture loss and shrinkage, it is crucial to start out caulking your log home using the right product—Sashco Log Builder. This versatile caulk stretches and compresses as logs move and stays elastic, ensuring that the elements and insects stay out of your log home for years to come.

Easy to work with

We very much like your log builder caulk product. We are the owners of a 25 year old log home that we are in the processing of remodeling on the inside, staining and caulking on the outside. Your product is easy to work with and is doing a great job.
Highly Recommend

In 2013, I was constructing a cabin on Casper Mountain in Wyoming. I had worked with a local firm who put together a log cabin package and delivered the entire package to the job site. Sashco Log Builder Caulk was their recommended product. We used it where the saddle notches joined at the cabin corners and as chinking between the logs, and about anyplace else that needed caulk. We had the cabin near completion when the Sheepherder Hill Wildfire destroyed the cabin - it burnt to the ground. Now, 4 years later, we have rebuilt a smaller outbuilding (12' x 12') and have started re-building the cabin. While I have changed some of the design features - flaws in the original design - one thing we have not changed is the caulk/chinking. This time around - we are ordering "log only" deliveries at various times and purchasing the other materials as we need them. Which is why I have made several purchases of Sashco Log Home Builder Caulk from you, and construction will continue through the summer of 2018, so expect more purchases. The packaging size is good - I order the cases with 10 of the larger caulk tubes in a case. The product arrived at my doorstep within a few days. I tend to work on the cabin on weekends. We lay the logs in place by hand and caulk as we go. If I was getting low on caulk Sunday evening, I could order caulk Monday morning and it would be delivered before Friday - ready for another weekend of building. The caulk is the proper thickness - not too thick and not too thin. I have used other brands that were sometimes too thick and I couldn't squeeze it out with the caulk gun, or too thin and it drooped out of the groove that I was caulking. The color seems consistent - though I am working with logs of various colors, so an exact match from batch to batch in the caulk was not high on my required quality check list. I use the natural wood color, and then stain the logs and caulk all at the same time, after the wall is built. The caulk does take the stain similar to the log. It works well at a wide range of temperatures - Temperatures in the summer can reach 100 degrees, I have also applied it at near freezing temperatures - on our last building Days in November, and it has always cured properly. As for product duration, I used the Sashco Log Builder Caulk on the re-built outbuilding 4 years ago. After 4 years it is showing no signs of wear and seems to be working as well now as the first year it was applied. I would highly recommend the Sashco Log Builder Caulk to anyone building a log cabin - it is the only log caulk that I intend to use on my cabin.
