New Log Siding That’s Maintenance Free!November 09TH, 2009 chuck Filed under: log siding, Seamless Steel Log Home Siding
“My log home, which is set on a hill takes a beating from the Midwest temperature extremes and winds. After only owning my home for a short time, I knew I needed to do something to make it look good again”, says Oscar Green.
Green built his wood log home five years ago and realized this year it just didn’t have the same rustic glow. He noticed the logs had really begun to fade and leak. He explains, “The logs began to look like they had been bleached. We also get driving rains and the water would seep right through the logs, leak around the windows and leave stains.”
Green looked into hiring a professional to white wash his logs and then stain and re-caulk them. Together they figured this process would have to be done every three years just to keep the logs in good condition and looking nice. Green was concerned about the continued costs of having this done, but he also didn’t want to lose the look of his log home.
ABC Seamless’ new seamless steel log home siding captures the natural, rustic appearance of a log home, but without the maintenance hassle like traditional wood log siding. Its durable too because it made of steel.
Today Green has more free time. Otherwise he would spend time whitewashing, staining and caulking between every single log and all of the joints. Green says, “With my house sitting on a hill like this, it really catches the wind. Thanks to my new steel siding, I know that after a wind storm, the siding will still be on my home.” He adds, “Ive also noticed my home has been warmer and quieter too.”
A very satisfied Green says, “I’m getting older and don’t want to deal with all of the maintenance which comes with owning a wood log home. Now there’s no maintenance, and I still have my log siding.”
