Testimonials


"I used Energy Seal between my logs and it is a fantastic product!"

Tricia D., TN

"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 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

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and offer my sincerest gratitude. Our company has the highest reputation for the kind of quality workmanship and attention to detail that our clients require. Cascade Mountain Log Homes log restoration division has become an area expert and Perma-Chink Systems has been a key component in our ability to offer outstanding product and service.

Perma-Chink Systems is the only product line that we recommend to our clients. We have tried the other products on the market, which are specific to our industry needs and found your entire family of evolutionary products to simply be the best. In addition to the exceptional product, the educational seminars have not only proven to be extremely helpful for our crews, but for our clients as well. The feedback has been tremendous."

Ted Boyd, Cascade Mountain Log Homes, WA

" 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."

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.

"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."

Harold & Nancy A., NC

"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 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."

The Glazners, MT

"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

"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

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."

"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

"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!"

Marcia M., GA

"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."
