Red Cedar steel log siding boasts a 26-gauge steel core, making it the most durable siding that we currently offer. The steel is coated with the industry best and environmentally conscious paint called SMP (modified polyester). SMP is one of the toughest and most economical exterior paints available. It is concocted to withstand fading, chipping, peeling, cracking, and blistering. Between our red cedar siding’s long-lasting steel composition and its ultra-durable paint coating, it is able to stand up to the most adverse weather conditions and damaging elements in which other sidings would fail in its place. This premium steel log siding will stand up to hail, high winds, and resist rust or corrosion. While traditional wood can be a fire hazard, our steel siding is fire-proof. It’s built to be tough, ensuring peace of mind for your family.
During installation, a one-inch foam backer is placed between the steel siding and the side of the house, giving your home even more durability and preventing dents in the steel. This method of installation is also great for your wallet, because it adds an insulation value of 4 to your home. Additionally, our SMP paint incorporates solar reflecting properties to keep the sun’s heat out of your home in the summer and raises the R factor of your home. The overall design and components of our red cedar siding allows you to keep your family cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, without incurring excessive expenses.
