What makes vinyl log siding special?

Unlike real logs, which can be expensive to purchase and to install, vinyl siding is affordable. Installation is simple, so DIY enthusiasts can rest easy. The very realistic look of vinyl logs comes from the fact that the log casting forms are impressions of actual logs. Only the closest inspection may reveal otherwise…or not! What's more, vinyl log siding has advantages over all other vinyl siding: the rigid foam that helps vinyl logs keep their shape also gives vinyl siding powerful insulating abilities. Your utility savings will eventually pay for the initial cost difference.
