Why log homes require regular maintenance.

Caring for a log home means never letting wood-related problems go without prompt correction. Timber for log homes has certain characteristics making it vulnerable to problems such as:

  • Rot
  • Fungus
  • Insect infestations

Trees have natural defenses against the elements, but when they are turned into logs for construction, they lose the bark and systems that protect them from rot and other problems.

The cost of maintaining a log home over time.

As the owner of a log home, you have to stick to a schedule of routine maintenance to prevent the problems listed above. That upkeep typically includes:

  • Re-sealing
  • Re-painting
  • Re-staining
  • Replacing damaged chinking
  • Repairing split or rotted logs
  • Exterminating pests or insects

In a typical situation, you’d have to perform this maintenance about every 2-3 years. However, sometimes log home upkeep is required more often. For example, re-staining the house each year might be needed in some situations. Maintenance costs you both time and money.

You have to invest quite a bit of time to take care of your log home, and that’s time away from doing the things you enjoy with the ones you love.

From a financial perspective, the maintenance required for a real log home can add up to tens of thousands of dollars over a decade or more. Although the cost can vary, generally the average cost per square foot of log siding maintenance is $2 to $5. Using this figure, for a home with 1,500 square feet of log siding, required maintenance for the home would range between $3,000 and $7,500 every time it’s performed, which adds up astronomically over 10 years or longer.

Class A Fire Rating

Fire is a big concern, especially with the dry weather and droughts in the west. Wildfires have created a haze over western states too often in the summer months over recent years. TruLog™ steel log siding has been tested by an independent laboratory and qualified for a Class A fire rating, the highest rating available. This means that a building with TruLog™ siding is more resistant to fire.

How does steel log siding compare to other material?

TruLog™ provides you with the style, charm, and appeal of a log home without the staining, chinking, and other required maintenance. Our steel siding is constructed from heavy gauge steel and features dent-preventing foam backers for exceptional strength against the elements. Steel siding is resistant to rot and other moisture-related problems that plague traditional log siding. To clean steel log siding, you only need to rinse it with water to remove any debris or dirt that accumulates over time.

As you compare the maintenance requirements of various home exterior options, it’s important to keep your priorities in mind. Log homes and cabins have a look, feel, and overall aesthetic that’s unlike any kind of house, but they require a lot of your time and money. Steel log siding has the same natural, rustic appearance with little to no care required.

Our steel log siding can be used for a wide variety of log-style structures. To get a quote for your project, please contact our friendly, knowledgeable team. We are fully committed to providing our customers with a high-quality product and outstanding customer service. We will ship our boxed steel siding directly to you, no matter where you live in America.
