If you have a hunting cabin, fishing retreat or rental cottage, spring is a great time to consider renovations. And if you’re seeking a more durable, energy-efficient upgrade over a traditional log cabin, you may want to consider TruLog™.
TruLog is an innovative, log-like steel siding system that replicates the rustic aesthetics of a log cabin, but with improved insulation and protection against the elements, and without the costly annual maintenance concerns. Give us a call at 970-646-4490 to learn more or request a sample.
TruLog™ and Small Cabins
The versatile, multi-patented TruLog system is compatible with larger, family-size homes, but it is also ideal for hunting cabins and other small cottages.
TruLog is made of 28-gauge steel, which offers excellent strength at a relatively light weight. TruLog’s panels are manufactured in 12-foot lengths, which fit many standard structure sizes and allow for easy shipping and transportation to your cabin site.
Prior to installation, TruLog’s contoured panels are backed with form-fitting foam that increases your cabin’s R-value and enhances the rigidity of the exterior. This improves your cottage’s energy efficiency and protects against pests, hail, high winds, moisture and other conditions that can adversely affect the structural integrity of your cabin.
The True Log Features of TruLog™
Many people love the appearance and old-fashioned charms of log cabins, but not the annual maintenance and high costs required for upkeep. TruLog offers the natural beauty of timber, but it is truly maintenance-free.
Among the log cabin features TruLog replicates are:
- Distinctive hew lines: Hew lines are lines that mark the cuts in timber, and they are one of the distinguishing characteristics of log homes.
- Authentic-looking chink lines: Chinking is the caulk-like substance that seals the gaps between the cut timbers in log homes.
- Wood-like grain: TruLog’s attention to detail extends to the look and texture of wood-like grain on the panels.
- Natural-looking contours: TruLog’s panels feature 9-inch-tall log profiles that are outwardly contoured to resemble cut timber.
TruLog is available in a number of colors, and its tough coating is designed to resist fading, chipping and cracking. TruLog is further backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
