Vinyl/Steel Log Siding

Recommended Posts

I'm going to install new siding on our A-frame style cabin in the Willmar area. Leaning towards the vinyl or steel log siding that is available. The only steel that I came across was from the well known 'seamless' company so I expect that they will be a bit pricey for me, especially since they would need to come out and do the install. The total area for the cabin and unattached garage will only be about 8 square. I've done some siding in past with both steel and vinyl but I have not seen this log siding before.

Does anyone have any experience and opinions (good or bad)on the vinyl log siding?

the one i have used wasnt to bad to work with goes on just like double 4 goes on. its maintenance free. i would reccomend it. log siding itself, at the time, would have been cheaper to put on but its not as easy to take care of.

As a rule, a good siding job won't leave your door and window trim sunk in. The 1 1/8th J channel on account of the thicker siding will have to be addressed. So depending on what you have for trim will need to be dealt with. Butting 1 1/8th" J channel to brick molding or a nailing flange is barely acceptable. The brick molding should be furred out and wrapped in aluminum. The windows with a nailing flange should framed to a thickness of 1 1/2, go as wide as you like but 2" is good IMO. Those get a aluminum clad.

Other then that I say go for it.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!

    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
