Shiplap 12″ and 8″ Sidings – Product Information

 

The Better Than Logs Shiplap 12″ and 8″ Concrete Log Sidings are developed from REAL Montana harvested wood. The grains are authentic and not mechanically generated.The shiplap siding delivers a beautifully classic look and works wonderfully as the main siding option as well as an option for dormer and gable sidings.

The Better Than Logs Shiplap 12″ and 8″ Concrete Log Siding is similar to the Shiplap sidings that have been utilized for centuries around the world, allowing modern homes to benefit from 21st-century construction and insulation technologies.

All Better Than Logs Shiplap 12″ and 8″ Concrete Log Sidings have three forms of internal bracing creating a strong and stable concrete panel:

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

We offer our Better Than Logs Shiplap 12″ and 8″ Sidings in seven colors: Natural, Weathered Wood, Golden Brown, Light Brown, and Dark Brown. All sidings and trims are suitable for interior and exterior applications.

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 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) 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 SL12 and SL8 products. Let us know if you would like a sample, what color you would prefer, and we will make every effort to accommodate.  All products ship stained and ready for installation. No additional surface sealants are required. All products are maintenance free.
