Project Description

Half-Round 12” – Product Information

 

The Better Than Logs™ Half-round 12″ Concrete Log Sidings are developed from REAL Montana Turned Logs, with authentic grains and textures. Historically, round logs have always been popular in the United States as their look is one of an American classic.

Round-Log Log Homes are still the most popular Log Homes being built. Historic Round Log Homes are still in existence in nearly every state in the union, and new versions are being built constantly.

The Better Than Logs™ Half-round 12″ Concrete Log Siding authentically replicates the round-log look of the past, allowing modern homes to benefit from 21st-century construction and insulation technologies.

We offer our Better Than Logs™ Half-round 12″ Concrete Log Sidings in seven colors: Grey Weathered Wood, Natural, Golden Brown, Light Brown, Classic Brown, Weathered Wood, and Dark Brown.

All Better Than Logs™ Half-round 12″ Concrete Log Sidings have three forms of internal bracing which creates a very stable concrete panel including:

  • Polyiso Insulation Board laminated into the back of each board
  • Three layers of fiberglass roving cloth throughout the boards

All sidings and trims are suitable for interior and exterior applications.

The Better Than Logs™ Half-round 12″ Log Siding is available with the chink flange (WF) and without the chink flange (NF) chink joint may range. When ordering the Half-round 12″ Log Siding, both options are available. The chink joint may range from 0″ to 3+”, entirely up to the customer.

All products ship stained and ready for installation. No additional surface sealants are required. All products are maintenance free.

Product installation is very simple. All boards are to be drilled and screwed in place on the structure. The Trims are installed first, then the main Siding boards are installed. The sealant is used throughout the installation for weatherproofing.

Once the installation is complete, the major joints are sealed, chinked, and finished.

We also have access to experienced and trustworthy Contractors, Builders, and Installers in many areas of the country that can accomplish the installation if preferred. Typical product lead time is 8-12 weeks, shorter if we have available inventory. For the installation, we offer color matched BTL Sealant Caulking (7 colors), BTL Chinking (12 colors), and BTL Installation Hardware.

A great deal of engineering design, manufacturing materials, and manufacturing labor initially go into our products so that you, the customer, are required to do little to no maintenance on your exterior siding for the life of your home.

Additionally, Better Than Logs™ products include a “Limited Lifetime Warranty” on our product’s structure and coloring. Our warranty ensures that your project will continue to look great for many years to come. We manufacture, sell and ship directly from the factory in Drummond, Montana. We can ship throughout the continental USA and the world. We do send out samples of our HR12 products. Let us know if you would like a sample, what color you would prefer, and we will make every effort to accommodate.
