Vinyl log siding Benefits

There are a number of benefits for investing in vinyl log siding, though it is mainly chosen to create an overall aesthetic. It is made from profiled vinyl sheet with an insulating molded form backing that keeps cold air out in the winter months and cooled air in during the summer. Aside from the occasional wash with a power washer, vinyl siding is practically maintenance free. Unlike real logs, vinyl siding offers several benefits, such as:

  • No staining or painting required
  • No sealing required
  • It will not splinter
  • It will not rot
  • No invasive insects
  • It will not settle

Homeowners can enjoy the beauty of vinyl logs and put upkeep concerns away.

Cost and Options

Though this type of siding can be costly on a large home, it is much less expensive than real logs and is becoming more and more popular due to its numerous benefits. Though the price ranges greatly depending on the type of wood and color, it will typically run $1 to $4 per linear foot of a log. This does not account for the fact that vinyl siding is easier to install and may save money on heating and air-conditioning costs. If you are looking for the rustic look of a log cabin home but want the conveniences of modern cladding technologies, vinyl log siding is an excellent option.
