When it comes to vacation rentals, especially in Colorado and across much of the West, many people seek the romantic, rustic warmth of a log home or cabin. That’s why, when it comes to renovating a vacation rental, many owners consider log structures, wood siding, or alternatives such as log-like siding.
The patented TruLog™ steel siding system offers the distinctive charms of a log home without the costly, long-term maintenance needs and with improved energy efficiency. TruLog also offers benefits over options such as vinyl log siding and concrete log siding.
Transforming Your Home into a Vacation Rental
According to the popular home design website Houzz, an increasing number of owners are remodeling their homes with the idea of offering their properties as short-term rentals or vacation rentals.
In fact, the rising popularity of renting personal homes for brief stays has created a highly competitive market. And as any real estate agent will tell you, the curb appeal of the property is key to drawing looks (and, in the case of vacation rentals, guests).
The Advantages of Renovating with TruLog™
Whether you’re considering upgrading your own home for short-term rental purposes or renovating a secondary property that serves as a vacation rental, TruLog provides a beautiful, maintenance-free solution for those who desire the look and feel of a log cabin.
TruLog’s innovative design mimics the appearance and texture of natural logs, right down to the grain and hew lines. The TruLog steel siding panels are further backed by contoured foam for superior insulation compared with traditional log homes and log siding.
Authentic log homes can be nice, but they require annual inspections and expensive maintenance to protect their structural integrity; they also come with additional hidden risks. TruLog needs no routine servicing—when dirt and debris accumulate, you can simply rinse TruLog with your garden hose—and it won’t warp, fade or crack as vinyl siding and concrete-fiber siding are prone to do with time.
