Grip Strip - Trapezoidal Foam Backer

Grip Strip is chemically inert closed-cell polyethylene that is shaped to fit between log courses to form a flat surface for the application of Perma-Chink or Energy Seal. This makes it easier to maintain a consistent thickness of sealant across the seam, reducing the amount of sealant required and improving the sealant’s performance.

  • Provides a firm chinking or caulking surface
  • Shape and texture allow it to be easily installed without using staples, nails or glue
  • Repels water
  • Compatible with all commonly available synthetic chinking
  • Helps prevent blistering of chinking surfaces
  • Provides extra insulation against heat loss

five star P Malkmus in TN (04/27/15) - "I am a professional log home Applicator in TN and this is the perfect product for insulating and caulking in the sides of windows, doors and eaves that have a big gap. I would not want to caulk or chink a house without it!"

five star J Robison in PA (11/17/14) - "I still love your Grip Strip for seams that are 1" or 2" wide and also on round logs but for anything over 2" I have switched over to cutting Styrofoam board."

Project Spotlight

  • A simple comparison of the cost of a gallon of wood stain is a mistake because all stains differ in their lifespan, coverage rate and quality of appearance and protection

    Whether you’re currently building your dream log home or simply checking off tasks on your annual home-maintenance “to do” list, we’re always looking for ways to skimp on expenses around the house.

    But when it comes to putting your best foot forward with a beautifully stained home that’s also protected from the exterior elements, you might want to think twice before being lured in by the lower price tag of a middle-of-the-road finishing product.

    Think about it

  • Lifeline Ultra-7 stands out as THE top-of-the-line, long-lasting finish. Take a look at our tutorial video on proper application technique.
