Hi, we rent a 1918 cabin in WV, we want to chink interior walls for heating efficiency this winter. We have two questions, what are the best, most economical materials to chink with and what temperatures are too cold for application?
Thank You!


Do not cheap out on the material. Use a good quality chink or caulk like Perma Chink or Energy Seal caulk. It can be applied in some pretty cold weather. Too much heat is worse for it. Rule of thumb is 3/4" or less-caulk / 3/4" or wider-chink.
