Log Veneer is used above to
cover a stick-built garage.
Log Veneer is used in a variety of
situations, the most common being as an exterior siding on conventionally
gable ends above the log walls. It is also used extensively on gable
dormers, shed dormers, stick-built garages, workshops, breezeways, and on
some interior partition walls. It is suitable anyplace where
structural, settling, and/or cost considerations make a full log wall
impractical for the intended use.
Log veneer is crafted from Eastern
White Pine (EWP) and is kiln-dried for stability due to the veneer being cut from the outer edges of the timber and higher-than-normal shrinkage rates without the ability to settle because veneer is always attached to a stick-frame or insulated panel wall.
|Veneer is normally hand-hewn
on the exposed side for the more authentic "Appalachian" look
and feel. Additionally, the veneer can be WeatherAged™
to remove a little of the softwood between the growth rings which raises the
grain and makes the wood look like it has been exposed to the elements for
200 years! A rich stain will then accentuate the shadow lines and
texture of the wood.
Veneer is priced by the linear foot and includes
sufficient Perma-Chink® to cover the
correct spacing between the log veneer courses. The chink space
associated with each different type of veneer allows coverage of wall area
at a larger percentage per linear foot purchased.

representative will be happy to prepare an estimate for your
project. This is done by reviewing a set of your plans or by
discussing the average dimensions of your project. Below is a short
starter checklist for estimating purposes:
- Total square footage of wall area.
- Type of veneer desired: 1x12, 1x14, or Timberlake.
- Chink space desired:
1",2",3",4", or variable.
- Surface prep: Hand-hewn or planed
- Add WeatherAged™ finish?
- Color of Perma-Chink®
- Color & Type of Lifeline®
- Shipping options and order scheduling.
|A conversion chart for the
different types of veneer is shown below:
1. 1x12 (Traditional): 1 linear foot purchased
will cover 1.33 square feet of wall area.
2. 1x14 (Timberwright): 1 linear foot
purchased will cover 1.4 square feet of wall area.
3. 1x variable height (Bob
Timberlake Log Home Collection): 1 linear
foot purchased will cover 1.5 square feet of wall area.
The above guidelines do not allow for any waste
factor. Each project is different, but a normal waste factor
allowance is generally 5% to 7% that needs to be added to the amount of
veneer being ordered. Veneer is shipped in a random assortment of
lengths from 8' to 16' with the majority being 12', 14', and 16' lengths. Technical information sheet and installation instruction sheet is available.
