J-Channel is a type of channel named after it shape according to the alphabet letter it resembles, “J”. J-Channel is installed around doors and windows to accept the TruLog log cabin siding. The j-channel fits tight against the outer edge of your doors and windows and is screwed into the wall, not the window itself. When installing the log siding, the siding slides into the channel to hide the cut siding.
Undersill is used to hold your faux log siding in place underneath windows, because there will be a jagged edge because of the cut made to fit under the window. Undersill provides extra strength and durability to the cut panel and provides the perfect finishing touch to your home.
H-Starter (Starter strip) is the first siding accessory you will install on your home because it is the starting point for your whole installation. The Starter strip is used to lock the first panel of our metal log home siding to your home.
Corner Base & Cap
Corner bases and caps are used to cover up the corners of your house and hide the cut metal siding. A corner base is applied to the home so the corner cap can be snapped on over the top. Corners provide your home with that finished look as well as protects the end of your TruLog faux log siding.
Frieze Board (Crown)
Frieze board is one of the last siding accessories to install on your log home. Frieze board is used where the top metal siding panel meets your soffit. Normally, you would have to cut the siding almost perfect or install another piece of j-channel to accept the siding. Not anymore with frieze board! This L-shaped metal snaps directly into the soffit j-channel and covers up your cut log siding. No more having to cut the siding to exact lengths since it can be covered up by the frieze board.
