Vinyl/Steel Log Siding

3 posts in this topic

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.

    • you could try using a product called plastic renew but I have had mixed reviews with it. works great but you have to re-apply it to keep things looking good. I have also had good luck with dawn dish soap and fantastik but i usually just keep it simple and hope for the best. 
    • Hi, went out and tried a new trail last weekend and boy was it muddy my quads are disgusting I tried soap and water which always works and it helped but that still look terrible does anyone have any home remedies they use to get the shine back I know tire foam works well. I don't want to go out and spend all kinds of money on cleaners this is my first time ever going "mudding" and all must stuff always has to be sparkling clean. Thanks 
    • I don't remember saying that, but if that is your definition of why I called you an elitist we are miles apart.  
    • Hey everyone! I currently have a 6x12 utility trailer and when I bought it about a year and half ago I had a 500 and a 90 and it works great for that but I found a good deal on a 05 Polaris 330 magnum and couldn't pass it up but soon realized 2 full sized atvs do not fit of a 6x12 so I need something bigger yeah I know put one on the trailer and one it the truck but it would be so nice to have them both on the trailer so my options are a 6'6x12 with some kind of Atv side ramp but just can't decide weather I want a side ramps or the Ramps that slide in the side to make your side I like the ramp but I think it would get annoying because i use it for a lot more than just hauling atvs that's why I like the 2 single ramps. I don't want anything bigger than 6'6x12 than it just gets to big. What's better? Thanks!

    • How about team europe, a team a lot of people wrote off when they did not win any of their pre-tourny games.

    • Never mind, found a thread on this topic in bowhunting forum.  Apparently depends on what kind of public land whether semi or permanent stands are ok.
