How do I measure how much I need?
2x8 Log Cabin siding has a 6-5/8" exposure, meaning you'll need roughly 181 lineal feet to cover 100 square feet. Always factor an extra 5% for waste factor.
Is this sold random length or can I specify lengths?
You can specify lengths, and it's sold in 12' and 16' lengths.
What kind of wood is this?
Our log cabin siding is made from a SPF white wood. Expect a bright, white piece of wood with occasional knots that's light and easy to cut and fasten.
How do I install and fasten?
First, make sure the material acclimates for at least a week in its end environment. Acclimation is a critical step for proper installation and prevents future expansion, contraction, or warping issues from occuring. There are two ways you can install. You can install with two nails through the face at every stud for best long-term performance, or, if you choose, you can blind nail through the tongue. For trim, make sure to use at least a 2" trim to leave a proper shadow line.
