  1. Less cost: Vinyl siding costs significantly less than wood siding; you can find vinyl siding for $1 per square foot and up, while wood siding starts at about $3 per square foot.
  2. Less maintenance: Wood log cabin siding has to be finished before installation and requires annual maintenance to maintain its appearance and structural integrity. Vinyl log cabin siding doesn't need finishing and requires little more than an occasional wash. The siding is available in a variety of colors and textures resembling wood grain and features such as knots.
  3. No pests: Vinyl siding doesn't attract termites and other insects, and it resists mildew and mold.
  4. Dent resistant: Hail can damage steel and aluminum siding, but vinyl siding is designed to flex with pressure.
  5. Increased energy efficiency: When installed properly, vinyl siding can insulate your home from drafts and prevent heat from escaping as it could with traditional logs and "chinking." Check with local utility companies for rebates and energy conservation incentives.

Estimates for a 2,200-square-foot home start at about $6,000 for do-it-yourself installation and increase for complete installation, materials and extras.
