Our TruLog® Steel Log Siding

Our steel log siding at TruLog® can make your home look like a rustic log cabin while providing a long list of benefits that make it a superior choice to wood log siding. Because our siding is made from steel, it’s durable, long-lasting, fire-resistant, and environmentally-friendly. While it’s true that steel can’t exactly replicate the look of wood, our steel log siding comes pretty close. 


The steel log siding from TruLog® is completely maintenance-free. With natural wood siding, you will have to worry about restaining, repainting, rechinking, and other upkeep projects. But with steel log siding, you’ll never have to spend your weekends or free time working on your siding. If your siding becomes dirty, you can simply spray it off with the garden hose, and that will be the most maintenance that our steel siding ever requires. 


Steel log siding from TruLog® is made from rigid 26-gauge steel. It will not rust or rot, the paint won’t fade or chip, and it is not susceptible to insect infestations like carpenter ants and termites. With our steel siding, you simply have it installed — or install it yourself — and sit back and enjoy your home. 


Since our log siding is made from steel, it is considered extremely sustainable. Steel doesn’t require much energy to make, and once it’s made, it can be recycled again and again. 


Our steel log siding is made from 70% recycled materials. And, in a few decades when you are ready to replace your steel siding, it is 100% recyclable. You don’t have to worry about trees being cut down to make your siding and none of it will end up in a landfill when it’s time to replace it.


Our steel log siding is designed to last 30 years. Since it doesn’t rot or rust and the paint never chips or cracks, you can enjoy your maintenance-free siding for three decades. 


Steel log siding isn’t impacted by rain, hail, or snow like some other faux log sidings. It’s built strong and tough to protect your home from even the harshest weather. 

Reduces Your Energy Bills

Our steel log siding can increase your home’s insulation factor from a R-3 to an R-4. Which means your home’s heating and cooling system will have to work less. Our steel siding is also painted with CoolPaint Technology™, which reflects the heat from the sun away from your home. It is also coated with an ENERGY STAR compliant finish to increase its energy-efficiency.  


TruLog® steel siding is also fire-resistant. While this doesn’t necessarily mean that your home cannot catch on fire, seeing as other components are probably made from wood. It means that the siding of your home will not attract a fire. 

30-Year Warranty

We are so confident that our steel log siding won’t fade or chip, that we offer a 30-year paint protection warranty. 

Simple Installation

Our steel log siding is made to be easily installed by either you or a professional contractor. We include installation videos on our site so that you can see step-by-step instructions of how our steel log siding is installed on your home.
