Thread: What caulking matches chinking best?

  1. #11
    I'm more worried about keeping my house warm at this point. If it's extra cold or windy, my heating system can't keep the house at the thermostat set point because it's so drafty. And it seems to be getting worse as the logs dry out and shrink.

    For you hunid climate people out there, how many winters does it to dry your logs out completely? I still can't get below 50% humidity inside

    I think we used Sashco logjam to touch up ours, I don't remember if it was the grey or mortar color, but one of them matched the standard recipe perfectly.

    It's been extra wet and cold this year... I suspect your issues will be solved by this time next year. Heat it as much as you can comfortably stand will help to dry out the logs,

    Not asking to be snarky but wondering what the humidity outside is.
    Every time I have strayed from the teachings of Skip Ellsworth it has cost me money.
