"Hello Guy, How did your repairs work out? Did this solve your problems? As you can see from the responses here, today's chinking products can work very well in this situation as long as the movement isn't too excessive. Triple Stretch…"

Caulking between logs and chimney

Hello all.  First time posting here, so if anyone can provide a little advice or direct me to a previous post on this topic, many, many thanks!  I've recently moved into a 10 year-old log home (yellow pine D-logs) with a two-story stone and mortar chimney running top to bottom on the sunny end of the house.  There is a gap of 0.25" to .5" between the D-logs and the mortar where the logs have pulled back from the chimney on the outside of the house.  I'm guessing that this end of the house has…See More
