I live in Montana, we just bought a log cabin that was not finished. We are going to chink the logs in the next few weeks. We are thinking very strongly about using the mortar chinking. However, we are very opened minded. I would love to hear your recommendation and why. We are not experts and are doing research right now. Thank you. Renee


The mortar will dry and pull away from the log leaving a small crack for water to get in. Spend the money now for good latex chinking like Perma Chink to avoid large repair bills later for rotten logs.
