Gaskets for Sealing Log Homes
What’s the best way to seal between the logs on a log home, stopping air, water, dust, insects, and noise in their tracks?
A common application for SureSeal is as a sealant between the logs on a log home. SureSeal’s ability to expand to fill irregular gaps is particularly suited to this application. And as long as it is compressed to at least 50%, it will form a weathertight seal that won’t allow air or water to infiltrate past the barrier it provides.
Since SureSeal is a pre-formed product, with adhesive on one side, it forms a consistent seal all along the joint. Compare that to caulk, whose performance is based on the quality of installation. A thin spot in the caulk bead, or a spot on the log where the caulk doesn’t adhere results in a hole in the sealant that is virtually impossible to fix post-construction. If the joint expands and contracts too much, the caulk can lose it’s adherence to the log, also resulting in a leak.
SureSeal doesn’t rely on adherence to the log to form a seal. It relies on it’s own internal propensity to expand back to it’s orginal size. If the joint expands, SureSeal expands to fill it. And if the joint shrinks, SureSeal will be compressed even more, retaining it’s seal.
AND SureSeal is a snap to use. Simply pull off the paper backing and stick it in place. No specialized tools, no mess, no cleanup. Fast, easy…EFFECTIVE.
