Just like any other type of siding, regular maintenance will extend the life of log lap siding in Colorado. The following methods will increase the lifespan of your siding:

  • Perform regular inspections. Since mold is contagious, it can easily spread from log to log. Regular inspections can help you catch the problem early. It is a lot easier to replace one slat than an entire wall.
  • Clean frequently to prevent rot and pests from ruining the wood.
  • Stain and paint the logs to provide protection against the weather.
