We know we’ve said it a million times, but one of the best things about our steel log siding is that it is maintenance-free. Real wood siding requires restaining, resealing, re-chinking, and other maintenance that will take up much of your free time and cost you a decent amount of money as time goes by. After you install TruLog® siding, the only maintenance you will be required to do is to give it a spray from the hose occasionally to clean the dirt off. Our steel siding does not fade, chip, flake, or peel because it is made from high-quality heavy gauge steel and you’ll never have to spend your weekend doing siding maintenance.
Made from Sustainable Materials
TruLog® siding is made from steel, an extremely sustainable material. Steel does not require much energy to be made and it can be endlessly recycled. You won’t have to worry about any trees being chopped down to side your home, and in 30 years or so when you are ready to re-side your home, your TruLog® steel siding can be recycled rather than put in a landfill.
Increases Insulation Rating
Our steel siding is installed with a contoured foam backer. This backer helps to increase your home’s insulation rating from an R-3 to a R-4. This means that your home’s heater and A/C system will not have to work as hard to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This results in not only saving you money on energy bills but also reduces carbon emissions.
TruLog® steel siding has been awarded a Class A fire rating, which is the highest rating possible. This means that your home, cabin, garage, or other structure will be less likely to catch fire, which is especially important for those who live in areas that are prone to dry weather and fires such as Colorado.
30-Year Paint Warranty
Our steel log siding comes with a 30-year paint warranty. This warranty protects against flaking, peeling, blistering, cracking, fading, and chalking. We offer this warranty because we are confident that TruLog® steel siding will protect your home for decades to come.
While traditional wood siding may be attractive to some people because nothing can perfectly replicate its appearance, our steel siding is resistant to insects such as termites and carpenter ants because it does not contain wood. With TruLog® steel siding, you’ll never have to worry about termites making their way into your home through your siding.
Rust- and Corrosion-Resistant
Another reason that you will love TruLog® steel siding is that it will never rust or corrode. You’ll never have to worry about it being damaged by the rain, snow, ice, or temperature fluctuations either. Our steel siding was built to last.
We paint all of our steel siding with CoolPaint™ technology. These are paints that reflect UV rays and make your home more energy-efficient. This UV-resistant paint will also help save you money on your energy bills.
Because our siding is made from steel, it will never rot as real wood siding can sometimes. You will not have to worry about it remaining wet after a storm or for any other reason. Our steel siding will not rot, rust, or corrode due to water, wind, or any other reason.
Durable and Long Lasting
TruLog® steel siding is made to last. We use the highest quality materials such as our heavy 26-gauge steel to ensure that our siding will last 30 years or more. That’s three decades of maintenance-free, energy-efficient, rot-resistant, fire-resistant siding.
