KB Home Signs Exclusive Agreement With Allura Fiber Cement Building Products

HOUSTON (October 18, 2017) – Allura today announced that it has signed a national agreement with KB Home to serve as the homebuilder’s exclusive supplier of exterior fiber cement siding products.

A mainstay in fiber cement building products for more than 75 years, Allura manufactures exterior siding, trim, soffit and shakes from facilities in North Carolina, Indiana, Oregon and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico.  Allura also is part of Elementia, an international company which produces building materials for the construction sector through cement, building systems and metals divisions in 14 countries throughout Latin America and the United States.  

“The Allura siding product line provides the benefits of fiber cement technology with a deeper, realistic wood grain, resulting in a more attractive appearance for enhanced curb appeal,” said Dan Bridleman, KB Home’s Senior Vice President, Sustainability, Technology and Strategic Sourcing.  “Additionally, Allura’s 50-year warranty of its siding products aligns with KB Home’s focus on providing long-term value for our homebuyers.”

Allura’s durable and easy to maintain fiber cement products stand up to weather conditions in all climates and are resistant to rot and wood-boring insects.  They are also flame retardant and available in a variety of styles and colors. 

 “We are pleased to partner with KB Home, a company with a long history of innovation in homebuilding, said Allura Chief Executive Officer Jessica Navascues.  “This agreement is a major step in the growth of Elementia and Allura as market leaders in the U.S. building products market.”

Sales of Allura’s fiber cement building products have grown steadily every year since the company’s launch, Navascues added.  Allura also was awarded Most Preferred Brand in Siding, according to results from Peninsula Publishing’s 2016 Brand Preference Survey.

Fiber cement exterior siding products by Allura are expected to appear in KB Home communities beginning in late 2017.
