EverLog Siding is an engineered concrete log siding and concrete timber siding product used in renovations and new construction. Designed to perform better than logs our siding will instantly transform the look and performance of any cabin, home or commercial structure.
Worry Free EverLog Siding is a patented, revolutionary engineered concrete log siding. Made of light weight reinforced concrete (sometimes referred to as fiber cement siding), EverLog Siding eliminates the costly maintenance, susceptibility to fire, mold, insects, and other problems commonly associated with wood logs or other siding materials.
Glass fiber cement siding is sometimes referred to as “fake or faux siding”. However, when you see our EverLog Siding you won’t use terms or phrases like “fake log siding” or “faux log siding” but more likely “beautiful”, “realistic”, “that is not wood?” or just “looks better than logs.”

3. Is EverLog Siding made of fiber cement?
EverLog Siding is actually made of GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete). Our GFRC mix is of the highest quality and has been extensively tested and is widely used in residential and commercial applications throughout the world. Because EverLog Siding is manufactured using only the best materials we achieve superior strength, durability, and performance.
Fiber cement siding is typically made with wood pulp which absorbs moisture and can delaminate and/or allow moisture to penetrate behind the siding or paint.
4. Is steel used to reinforce EverLog Siding?
No. This is not an acceptable industry practice.
The governing agencies that regulate construction materials and practices (including International Building Code (IBC) and International Residential Code (IRC)) reject this practice. For more information about why steel is not approved as reinforcement in thin concrete panels and siding please read the following White Paper.
EverLog Siding does not contain steel. We use only the highest quality materials to produce our siding and therefore is structurally sound and stable (on its own) without the need for steel reinforcement. Other companies claim superior materials but then have to cast steel into their log siding because it lacks adequate strength and may fail without it. Steel in thin concrete panels and siding creates a variety of problems including corrosion, freeze/thaw damage, difficulty cutting, etc. You may find this practice in China or other countries where there is little regulation to protect the consumer or maintain industry standards. To learn more please read the following White Paper.
EverLog Siding uses a proprietary Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) mix that has been extensively tested and is widely used in residential and commercial applications throughout the world. Our mix produces a lightweight and very high strength siding material without the need for additional reinforcement. The performance we achieve is unmatched in the industry.
5. What is included in an EverLog™ Siding package? Who applies the siding?
An EverLog Siding order includes pre-finished siding & corner posts. We can produce a window and door trim but other options are available. We can also supply screw and chinking from our approved partners.
EverLog Siding is best installed by a qualified installer, however, simple enough for a DIYer who can easily install it.
Here is our Siding Installation Guide that will guide you through all aspects of installation including what screws to use, caulking, chinking, etc.
6. What can EverLog Siding be applied to?
Our siding can be screwed to almost any surface. Traditional 2x wood/steel framing, SIP panels, and ICF’s are the most common.
7. What is your service area?
We service The United States, Canada and all International Markets.
8. What does a piece of EverLog Siding weigh?
EverLog Siding is extremely light weight and does not structurally affect the wall. A standard 12′ siding panel weighs approximately 42-55 pounds depending on the profile. While very light weight, we recommended two people to lift and apply EverLog Siding. Please consult the siding “Siding Installation Guide” for additional details.
9. How are doors and window openings handled?
Trimming out a door and window is similar to any other siding however because our siding has a raised profile you will need to make sure your door/window trim/molding extends out past the siding. This can be accomplished with a variety of materials including our own trim.
10. Is EverLog Siding pre-finished? What colors are available?
Yes, EverLog Siding is pre-finished and is available in 3 standard colors*. Custom colors are available for an additional fee.
EverLog Siding uses a proprietary finishing process that penetrates deep into our products for long lasting and durable finish. We have used this process for over 50 years on various concrete surfaces (so we know through almost a half-century of experience) that our finish is tested, proven and will last.
* Note: Very slight color variation may occur from one production batch to another.
11. How long does it take to get the siding package?
Once ordered, standard color siding is typically ready for delivery in 6 to 8 weeks. Quantities ordered, profile choice, custom colors, and other orders in the queue may affect delivery time. You will be given an estimated delivery date at the time of your order. Please call for a price and delivery estimate.
12. How is EverLog Siding packaged?
EverLog Siding is carefully packaged and shipped in durable crates to the job site. We do not charge customers to return the crates. Once the concrete log siding is installed EverLog Systems will arrange to have the crates picked up at no cost to the owner. This allows us to re-use crates and packaging, reducing the amount of construction waste and saves trees.
