“Bark siding is a material with a 100 year plus tradition. It has continuity in time. To people that are not from this area, it sounds exotic and unusual but that is the genius of place. It is a part of the fabric of architecture in the mountains. It is different from the outside, but rich in tradition locally.  Today people are looking for maintenance free siding options. Bark is maintenance free and a quality product. It provides the best of both worlds. Another point is the initial cost of the product is recaptured when you look at product life‐cycle costs. This is a timeless product.”
