We are planning to reside our home with 1/2 log siding. The product we are looking at has two options one has a rough out finish that will show more grain when finished. The other option is a real hand hewn finish which is much smoother. My question is would the smoother finish add to the log or the finishes longevity? Perma chink, right? Thanks for your time. Kelley


The rougher side will hold up better in most situations. Perma Chink Life Line - Yes
