This can cause structural damage if left unchecked. In this video, you will learn how to caulk a chinkless style log home.

Once you have your supplies, start caulking at about a 45 degree angle and line the spacing in between the logs with caulk. According to this video, it is important to use a high-quality brand of caulk because they will last much longer and have less air bubbles in the caulk itself. In fact, the demonstrator in the video has had premium caulk last up to twenty years! There really is not much more to it. However, if you find caulking to be too much work, you could always contact a professional cleaning and maintenance company.
