When you’re comparing different exterior solutions for your cabin or rustic getaway, such as vinyl log siding and wood log siding, an important thing to consider is the warranty that you receive. The warranty coverage a manufacturer provides can say a lot about their long term confidence in the product.
When looking at wood log siding, one of the most notable names out there is e-Log, a company that describes its work as “state of the art” (and I don’t dispute that in the least!). However, consider the warranty provided for their state of the art wood product:
The warranty is 15 years assuming that the e-log is maintained on a regular basis and the veneer is adequately stained to provide a protective finish.
Not only is the term of the warranty dramatically shorter than what vinyl log siding provides, but it requires a much greater amount of work on the part of the homeowner in order to ensure the warranty is even valid.
