"I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff at Redmond, WA for a great workshop. The employees at your facility were extremely helpful and friendly. It was worth a trip from Canada."
Mike H., Canada
"I felt the workshops went great, but I feel you always do a great job at Perma-Chink. ...Keep up the good work. If you and your crew is ever looking for another field to expand to, you could start a Customer Service 101 classes and share your secrets. Thanks for the help when ever needed."
Debby U., TN.
"I used Energy Seal between my logs and it is a fantastic product!"
Tricia D., TN
"I would like to say thank you for providing all the expert advise in selecting the exterior stain and interior finish for our new log home. I would like to say that all the wood products in our home are protected with LIFELINE stains and finishes. We are very proud of the way our logs and trim turned out and we owe it to your products."
Jerre P., MT
"Thanks for such prompt service. We have been working on our old logs (30 years old) for the past week and are amazed at the results so far. I’m really happy that we choose Perma-Chink for our renovation. The products we’ve used so far have lived up to our expectations and then some. This last bit of stain will finish the outside (other than the clear coat that we’ve got) and then it’s on to the inside. Exciting to see the real beauty of our logs. Thanks!"
Cynthia M., KY
"The workshop in Sacramento was extremely informative. Thank you for all your honesty and forthright manner. I am anxious to try out the samples & determine what is needed to progress. Attending one of your workshops has been on my "wish list" for over a year ... the time was well invested... again Thank you."
Sharon R., CA
"Why I decided to use Perma-Chink on my log house...
I decided that I would pay the extra money to refinish our ten year old log home the right way, but I was not willing to spend money wihout making sure I would get the most for it.
When I visited Perma-Chinks web page I found they offered samples and decided that I would give them a try. I also found some samples at a local home supply store for another well known product for Log homes and another major paint/stain supplier with a good reputation.
Once received I followed the instructions given on the samples for all three companies. I treated sections of logs with all three products and let them sit for over a year, along with the rest of the wall untreated.
On the Perma-Chink test logs I first applied Wood ReNew, filled the checks and jonts with CheckMate 2 and then two coats of Lifeline Exterior stain on one log and one coat on the other. Once nice and dry I finished with two coats of Iifeline Advance on one log and one coat on the other, and walked away.
Now that the logs have been exposed through all four seasons I have inspected the work and decided on your product. Good product - The samples made it happen. Now the job begins."

"One constant we have been able to depend on during our building project was the Perma-Chink System products and service. We are particularly pleased with the clear, non-yellowing, protection of Sure Shine satin hardwood floor sealer. Our beautiful Cypress flooring shines through.
We continue to enjoy the color tone of the Lifeline Exterior wood finish in Dark Natural used on the logs. The protection provided by the Advance topcoat r is proving to be essential in the Montana environment. The combination of the Lifeline Interior Light Natural wood finish and Acrylic Satin on the interior logs show off the skip peel character of the Lodgepole logs. We couldn't be more pleased with the color tones of our dream home. Finally, we highly recommend the use of Energy Seal sealant to keep the weather and bugs outside where they belong.
We are very satisfied with our decision to utilize Perma-Chink Systems products on our home. Not only now, but for future maintenance. We had the confidence to use the products knowing things were going to turn out right and as planned; easy use, clean-up and great results!
Thank you Perma-Chink, especially the Stevensville staff for all their help, tips and motivation."

"I am totally impressed with the service your staff provides to me and to our customers. Of the four manufacturers that Tennessee Log Homes distributes for, Perma-Chink Systems has the best support, hands down!"
Tom Kyker, Log Home Care Consultant, TN
"Our log home was built in 1979 and four years ago we had to call back our dealer for help in replacing a few rotted logs (bad roof overhang design system). We had been using various sealents on the market over those near 20 years with no success. Our dealer, Matt Kinlock, introduced us to the product line of Permachink. We have been a believer in your product line since. We have used Energy Seal, Lifeline Exterior and Lifeline Advance.
Our house had never had the "chinking"; it just had the regular milled logs stacked with the spline, gasket and 2 beads of caulking. With Desert Tan Energy Seal and the Dark Honey Exterior stain, we have transformed our plain little house into a beauty. What a differnce your products have made!
We have been very happy with your products and have just ordered more of the Desert Tan Energy Seal to "chink" the inside of our milled log home"
Lina H., MA
" About two years ago I laid about 1200 sq.ft. of plank flooring in my house and decided to try your floor product Sure Shine. The wood species were mixed pine, spruce and sub alpine fir, which was very soft. It caused me to wonder if I would need to redo the floor within a year or two. So far it appears I will never have to redo even in areas of heavy traffic as the Sure Shine is holding up remarkably well. Thank you."
Allen E., MT
"I am writing to thank you for allowing your employee, Mrs. Kathy Murdock, to attend and help us with our April, 2000 spring log home builders and maintenance open house. As you know, we at Steels are very proud to carry your products and have had to date very successful relationship. Your technical support by means of telephone, literature and personal assistance at events such as home shows and in branch seminars has proven to be an invaluable aid to our success. We are looking forward to another year of sales with your products and continued assistance."
Jan Groves, Steels Industrial Products, Canada
"We would like to personally thank you for all your help over the last year with the products your company has supplied to us for our log home. More importantly, the knowledge you provided in the proper care and treatments of our "log walls" was an invaluable education. From the stains and sealers all the way through chinking, you were at our disposal whenever we needed your assistance. It was a pleasure to work with you on our project and I would highly recommend Perma-Chink products and your company service to anyone building a log home. Through the project you learn the importance of doing it right the first time - that in the long run will save you time and money in years to come. Thank again!"
Kelly S., WA
I am one of those that likes to comment organizations that sell products that work well-above expectations---but I always worry that it will be a jinx!!! Since I've gone for close to a year for the entire project and not a flaw so far, I feel safe to now say what a pleasure your product was to use and the results have been perfect so far through the several seasons of expansion/contraction."

"I used Perma-Chink on my log cabin in 1981 and it still serves its purpose. I am about to take in my front porch, so I need some more Perma-Chink. I'm glad you guys are still around."
Tim H., GA
"I was amazed to find that not only were the products of high quality, the application technically superior and the results beautiful; I was overwhelmed with the level of personal support extended to my contractor and myself by the Victor, Montana Perma-Chink branch. I found the entire staff, and in particular, Joanne Hamlin, to be extremely knowledgeable and eager to assist with general information as well as "trouble shooting" in the field when necessary."

"I called your Eastern Division office in June to find out about your products. I was pleased to find that I didn't have to pull all the old chinking out, and that your Energy Seal could seal the house. The product was easy to work with and sealed the house like new. I am an extremely satisfied customer. What a great product! Thanks again."

"Your Shell-Guard is outstanding, so are the rest of your products!."
Ray D., PA
"After attending a product seminar at your Victor location and obtaining valuable information, we began the restoration. Starting with the interior second floor, we stripped, stained, sealed and chinked. The result was gratifying. We next moved to the exterior. Using the "Blaster-Buddy", and the glass media, the outside was stripped in a day with very little feathering of the wood. Again, staining, sealing and chinking followed.
All the products and tools we used performed just as expected, but even more important to us, the level of service we received was outstanding."
Keith C., MT
"We purchased some of your products for our 18 year old log home. It was pretty dark and dirty. I don't think the previous owners did much to preserve the finish. The Wood ReNew is just amazing! We haven't finished applying the Check Mate 2 or the LIFELINE Exterior, but if they work as well as the Wood ReNew, we will have the best looking log house in the neighborhood."
