Vinyl log siding provides the aesthetic appeal of a log cabin while providing numerous advantages and benefits over wood or steel log siding and actual log construction, including being impervious to wood-boring insects, resisting dents from hail storms, and resisting fading from exposure to the sun and weather. Additionally, vinyl log siding doesn't mold or mildew and never rots, splits or corrodes. Vinyl is also typically much less expensive than the other wood and steel options.

Continental Siding Supply offers American cedar and harvest brown colors in both 4- and 7-inch exposed face log widths. Timbermill has cedar and forest brown options with knotholes and grain patterns. Faux Panels log siding is available in cypress, smoke, spice and maple colors that are designed for a rustic look. Liberty Home Solutions' natural patterns use organic-looking grains and swirls to resemble natural wood.
