Sashco Products


Chinker's Edge makes your work go faster! It gives you the edge in tooling and clean up—savings as high as 20% in labor costs or application time. How can we make these claims? Professional chinkers have developed and tested the final formulation. Tooling is unbelievable easy, and, because little to no water is needed in the tooling process, clean up is practically eliminated.


Chinker’s Edge performance is guaranteed with a 10-year warranty, or when used with any of Sashco’s stains, (Sashco's Capture/Cascade or High Sierra Log Stain, or for interior log treatment, Symphony Clear Coat) a Limited Lifetime Warranty. Get the edge, Chinker’s Edge.

Backer Rod is a foam material used to fill large checks and gaps between logs. It also provides support for chinking and sealants. Its primary purpose is act as a "bond-breaker" and promote two-point adhesion (see diagram), giving the joint and sealing material the ability to compress and expand as logs move. Sealants and chinking do not adhere to the backer rod—only to the log surfaces of the joint—allowing for movement without damaging the sealing material.


Sashco distributes a number of types and profiles of backer rod including the Grip StripTM and Half Rod. You should select backer rod based upon your particular needs. Open-cell type is recommended to speed drying. A closed-cell type is more moisture resistant. (Ask your applicator or contact Sashco for a handy comparison sheet.)

Conceal's light texture simulates the natural roughness of wood. Conceal's 7 colors blend in with the most popular stains used on log homes, and Conceal's light texture simulates the natural roughness of wood. The combination of color and texture makes it hard to see where the caulking ends and the logs begin. Instead, they just blend together.

log buildLOG BUILDER
All logs move. That's why Log Builder Log Home Sealant was specifically designed to absorb all log movement. Whether it's shrinking, swelling, extreme weather or settling foundation, Log Builder Log Home Sealant moves with your home, maintaining an effective seal. Since it stretches and compresses up to 100% of the original joint size and stays rubbery, Log Builder won't crack or pull away. It creates a tight seal to keep water, dust and wind from seeping into your home.


Use one of Log Builder's seven water-based colors to seal around windows, doors and base boards. And don't forget to seal checks and cracks. Any split in the logs can promote decay and allow the elements to enter your home.

Log Builder is available in 10.5 oz.,
30 oz. cartridges, and 5-gallon pails
for bigger jobs.
