Some people think of a detached garage as an annoyance, after all, there’s nothing worse than having to step outside momentarily to get to it, especially if you’re in the middle of winter. What you might not realize is that a detached garage is actually a prime opportunity to take your décor to the next level. Most garages, as you already know make use of the vinyl siding which gets the job done in a pinch no doubt but do you really want it attached to your walls for all eternity? It tends to warp and become discolored after a few years no matter how well you take care of it, which is why many people turn to brick, which is considerably more expensive but definitely longer lasting. If you want to go for something a bit more original, then why not outfit your detached garage with log cabin siding?
Take your Garage Back to the Old Days with Log Cabin Siding
Like we said before, a detached garage is a serious opportunity to innovate with your aesthetics, and an awesome way to get the log cabin look that you’ve always wanted. There are quite a few things people tend to love about our product, the first being that it’s inexpensive. When you hear someone talk about installing log cabin siding, you probably think that the price is going the skyrocket when this is simply not the case. One of the things that makes our wood a bit cheaper is the use of white cedar over red cedar (we don’t offer red cedar).
You may not realize this, but white cedar is actually quite a bit cheaper and widely preferred by homeowners due to its lighter weight. You also have the option of choosing pine, which is yet another outstanding option, and even less expensive. When properly finished, these woods can last for a very long time and are an outstanding addition to your garage.
Putting it All Together
The low price is just the start of it. Sure, it’s pretty amazing, but you also have to consider how easy this entire thing will be to put together. The first thing you need to know is that every single piece of your log home siding will be hand inspected for defects. Defects can either be removed to ensure that the log functions properly within the assembly, or the log can be replaced entirely. In the end, you will get a perfectly matched set that is perfect for your construction or siding project.
As you are installing the log siding you will discover that it comes with tongue and groove end matching, which serves to give you the authentic look with half the work – that’s a value that you can’t pass up. You aren’t going to find yourself wrestling with any warped material, and you certainly won’t have anything that doesn’t fit. The only thing that makes it better, is the fact that you can install log siding on the interior if you wish.
Choose your Wood
Log siding is most often used on the home exterior, but if you want to take it a step further, you can take it inside your home or garage, using either the smooth face or the authentic hand peeled look that The Wood Worker Shopped has come to be known for.
Many of our customers choose to install log siding on the interior rather than paneling, and who can really blame them in the long run? It’s quite awesome, to be surrounded completely by wooden logs that bear a resemblance to the frontier cabins of old. You might not have to worry much about the dropping temperatures and disease that accompanied pioneer life, but you can , at the very least, enjoy the beautiful aesthetics that came with it. I
