CONCRETE LOG SIDING SAVES MONEY

How much time and money do you want to spend maintaining your dream home? And for how long? We believe the answer should be: Zero. However, many homeowners forget to consider the substantial and ongoing (lifetime) costs to maintain their log and timber home. These expense are so extensive and never ending that entire industries exist and are devoted to fixing and maintaining wood log homes. Why would anyone want these costly and never ending expenses? The total of these expenses will easily exceed any initial savings.

 

At EverLog Systems, we believe there is a better way!

 

Our EverLog Concrete Log Siding outperforms any product on the market and will save you a substantial amount of money over the life of your home. From maintenance costs to homeowners insurance premiums and structural stability to fire resistant our concrete log products minimize a lifetime of costs. Below is a contrast between a typical 2,500 sf home using concrete EverLog Sidng and a wood sided home.

MORE ISSUES TO CONSIDER …

1. Installation Savings.  Less time and labor is required to install our siding saving considerable construction costs.  Because our concrete EverLog Siding Panels cover more wall area, less time is spent on installation and cutting. Additionally, fewer fasteners are required.

2. Substantial savings on Home Owners insurance:
Not only do our products provide superior fire protection and a Class A Fire Rating, insurance companies prefer to insure our log siding.  Costs of Home Owners insurance is less than traditional wood siding, especially in high fire zone areas.  Other considerations insurance companies like about our products include:

a. Resistance to bug decay, mold, fungus and the like.

b. Insulation decreases the costs to heat and cool the home.

3. Maintenance free, no need to preserve, re-stain, or seal annually:

According to log home restoration companies, wood log owners spend an average of $750 a year in time and materials just to maintain their home. In addition, every three to five years wood log home owners pay generally pay $6000 or more to have their homes preserved, re-stained and sealed. Our package is practically maintenance free. We want our customers to enjoy their homes not the other way around. We do recommend using wood logs for the interior of the home where maintenance, weather, fire, and bugs can’t damage the wood.
