Hi! 1985 log cabin, painted by mistake previous to our purchase. Will corn blast, wanted to know if chinking on exterior only is a no-no. Backerade necessary? Cluster fly issues in VT. Recommendations on a source for corn cobb material (do-it-yourself job)?


Call Perma Chink for help getting the materials you need. There are not very many places to get this equipment for do-it-yourself. Chinking on the exterior is OK, but if you are experiencing wind drafts you should chink the interior also, looks nicer too. Yes, backer is necessary. Grip strip is the best. Go to .
