Concrete log siding is a patented system that reproduces to the most minute detail the look and feel of antique hand hewed logs with dovetailed corners and accessories with the strength and durability of long lasting concrete. Now a home can be built having the beauty and charm of an antique log home while eliminating the time and expense required to maintain real wood logs or wood log siding. Old Kentucky Logs may be used on new frame construction or can be applied to existing structures of any size built with wood, wooden logs, brick, concrete, and concrete block.

Typical wood framing is constructed according to local building codes. The builder will typically install ½” to 5/8” exterior-grade plywood sheathing. All walls are then wrapped with a weather-resistant barrier, such as Tyvek®. At this point, our installation crews add an expanded wire mesh and attach the concrete log siding. Stain is then applied to the concrete log siding, and all joints are filled with mortar.

Our concrete logs are logs are 2″ thick by 10″ wide by 8′ long, reinforced with steel for crack resistance and light enough that 2 people can handle and install. Watch this video to see exactly how simple installation actually is:
