This is to thank you for your products. As a Professional Finisher and Chinker, I have used several different products. What I have come to love about Perma-Chink Products is how well each product is on an individual basis, but more than that how well they work with each other as a complete system.
The Chink material was phenomenal. I used this product and saw firsthand how user friendly it is and how great it stands up. It also cut my labor cost approximately 35%, which enables me to keep more money in the company so that we can continue to grow. The stains apply nice and appear to be very durable.
Thank you for introducing me and my company to your products. I look forward to having many more satisfied customers using your Perma-Chink Systems products"

Here is my story! we live in eastern Kansas-south of KC 50 miles. Not a lot of log homes back here-but my father lives in central Idaho-- friends in southern Missouri both have log homes. I have spent a lot of time in your country so I am very familiar with log homes, chinking and different coating products.
We built our ranch style home 20 years ago and used cedar lap siding on it. needless to say it was literally falling off by 09' so here is what we did. a friend in Idaho owns a saw mill and I had him cut a whole load of fir into full 2" x 10" boards. we hauled them back to Kansas, ricked the up and dried them for 6-8 months. After they had properly dried I started the process of precutting everything to fit the house, following that we stained all sides of each board- and then applied 3 coats of your sealer to ALL sides of each board. After they were all installed we put one more top coat on the outside surface and then started the chinking process. I will tell you that I was dreading this part--however you sent me the stuff in 5 gal. pails-- used a bulk gun--and the disc to fill the gun. IT WAS SIMPLE!! We are very proud of what the final product has turned out.
My opinion is that you have the BEST product out there. the water base stuff was so much easier to deal with but when it dried its thick--shines and to this day there is no where on my house that needs any attention. Back here we have to deal with major humidity. By sealing all sides of every board the sealer has kept anything from cracking or checking. I have just watched my friend have a contractor restore his cabin. sandblast, re chink and refinish the entire cabin. Holy cow- I can only think that if he would have used Perma chink products he still might have a fat billfold. anyway thanks for your product. I know where to go when its time for a little touch up.. have a great day.

"Our 14 year old log home had a very bad start, especially when it came to materials used to stain, caulk, chink...well the WHOLE nine yards…all was NOT well. My husband and I lay awake at night worried to no end.
I am so thankful for many things… I was buying groceries at our local Ingles and bought the magazine “Country’s Best Cabins”, the June 2013 edition. In it, I found your Perma-Chink add . I called your 800 number and spoke with an extremely helpful gentlemen (and I am SO sorry, I do not have his name) who referred me to Robert Baste, owner of Nothing But Logs out of Lithonia, Ga. Also, this nice gentlemen had your Rob Voigt mail me a ton of information regarding your WONDERUFL products. The rest is pure magic… Please see the attached pictures.
I want to take this time to thank Robert Baste and his entire crew, Raul and Alfredo, for making our log home a “dream home” instead of a “nightmare”! Just knowing Perma-chink and Robert are here for me gives me peace of mind!"

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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."
