Howdy everyone! I have couple of questions about chinking. As many of you know, we have an older log home built in 1948. We have all kinds of chinking compounds that had been used through the years. Some is original and some is even......gulp.....some type of silicone.
Some of the chinking has split or has pulled away. There are even tiny spots of daylight that you can occasionally see. Can we chink over old chinking? Or, do we need to attempt to remove the old chinking first?
If so, what are the best methods of doing this? Our interior log walls have a 'yellow shellac' finish. Any responses will be greatly appreciated! :)
