If you’ve always dreamed of owning a log cabin, one thing you probably didn’t envision is all of the maintenance that goes along with it. Half-log wood siding requires re-painting, restaining, and re-sealing. Not only does this maintenance take up a lot of your free time, but it also costs quite a bit of money. That’s why we created TruLog™ steel siding. You can have the rustic log cabin feel and look, but our steel siding requires absolutely no maintenance and can last 30 years or longer. If you have always dreamed of owning a log cabin that you can pass down to your children, steel log siding can help make that dream a reality.

TruLog™ steel log siding looks like genuine wood, and has the same homey feel and traditional log-home look, without the need for any maintenance. At TruLog™, we believe in the value of spending your time with your loved ones doing the things you enjoy rather than focusing on the maintenance of a half-log home.

The price of half-log siding varies widely across the country, but generally it costs $9 to $12 per square foot for the siding. For coverage of exterior walls totaling 1,500 square feet, you could pay as much as $15,500 or more for a half-log home. The price of half-log siding is fairly expensive. Our TruLog™ steel log siding comes at just a fraction of the cost.
Half-log siding requires routine maintenance to keep your home in the best shape possible and to avoid damage like rot. As a result, the price of half-log siding doesn’t end with the upfront cost. Every 2-3 years, you may have to spend as much as $7,000 to perform routine care, which typically includes:
A log home is something most people would like to be able to pass down to children and future generations. With all those maintenance costs, making your log home last for decades can add up to tens of thousands of dollars. Without attentive care, the half-log siding could experience advanced problems that are even more costly to repair.
With our TruLog™ steel log siding, you can make your home last for decades without having to provide constant care for your siding. In fact, TruLog™ siding doesn’t require any maintenance other than a simple rinse with water when it’s dirty.
