PROJECT TIPS

When preparing for any phase of work on your log home, remember a few simple principles:

  • Carefully read all application instructions before you begin.
  • Thoroughly clean all work surfaces. Choose your cleaners carefully. Contact Perma-Chink Systems for complete information.
  • Apply products in moderate temperatures, out of direct sunlight.
  • Allow all previous applications time to adequately dry before applying another coat.
  • Better tools mean better results - don't skimp.
  • Take your time and enjoy the process.
