Standard exterior sidings such as wood, fiber board, vinyl, etc. are subject to damage from inclement weather and the wear and tear of our daily environment. Wood structures require continual upkeep to maintain their desired appeal. At a bare minimum, wood must be stained, sealed, and treated for pests on an annual basis. Concrete, being a much more durable material, is not as vulnerable to elements such as hail, fire, insects, molds & rot therefore allows you to enjoy your home without having to worry about the cost and hassles of continual maintenance.
Your maintenance costs will drastically decrease compared to a wooden structure. Additionally, reduction in insurance premiums will be significant. With the fire hazards across the nation, many insurance companies are refusing to write policies on log & wooden exteriors.
