Have a log cabin on a lake that was built in the 40's. The original chink appears to be a petroleum based product and is dark brown in color. We need to make minor repairs to the chinking. What product do you recommend that will be compatible with the existing chink? Many thanks.


Sounds like it is butyl caulk. Try calling Dave at 800-564-2987. He may be able to help
