Is your cottage exterior in need of a little love? Old real wood cabins may have looked nice in their day, but without proper care and maintenance, they become rundown over time. Luckily there’s a way to keep the charm of a real wood cabin without the high maintenance and associated costs. There are specialty siding products you can invest in that are made to mimic real wood, but are crafted with stronger, more durable, and maintenance-free materials.
Here’s a rundown of our new woodgrain siding products to help you create that authentic wood cabin look without the maintenance!
1 Sagiper Siding
Sagiper siding is loved for its aesthetics, durability, solar shield technology and low maintenance. With two main products, SAGIWALL and SAGIREV, you have great options to choose from for your wood cabin. SAGIREV is a highly durable exterior vinyl coating that offers high resistance to UV rays, water absorption and humidity, plus it’s impenetrable to insects.
SAGIWALL is a maintenance-free PVC tongue and groove panel wrapped in highly durable vinyl coating. With a low expansion and contraction coefficient, it’s ideal for the weather fluctuations we experience across North America. Sagiper siding is ideal for high humidity areas, absorbing over 97% UV radiation, and eliminating any fading and discolouration. Made with highly durable exterior polymer film, Sagiper siding repels dirt and is incredibly easy to clean!
2. Distinction Siding
Distinction siding is beautiful and uses nuanced paint that replicates the look of real wood, without any of the upkeep. It’s made from high strength steel and offers a high-performance paint system available in three series of colours: Wood Series, Nuanced Wood Series and Granite Series. The paint is rust-resistance, providing long-term, unmatched durability, and you can install the planks horizontally or vertically, depending on the look you’re hoping to achieve.
3. Longboard Siding
Longboard siding provides the richness and beauty of real wood, with zero long-term maintenance. You can rest easy knowing you don’t have to worry about repairing, staining, painting or replacing your siding ever again. It won’t rot, warp, peel or fade and it’s impervious to insects.
Available in a wide range of woodgrain and solid colour finishes, Longboard siding is resistant to weathering in colour and gloss retention. As a plus, it’s amazing for the environment. There are no toxic air pollutants released during manufacturing, and there’s no waste or runoff during application. It’s 100% recyclable and 98% of the overspray is reusable, so you can enjoy its beauty knowing your cabin exterior is sustainable!
If you want the gorgeous look of real wood for your cabin renovation but aren’t keen on the maintenance, these three options can give you exactly what you’re looking for!
