Don't Wait for the Perfect Day to Paint
Painting siding on-site can be a neverending waiting game in the West, whether you are near the Pacific Coast or in the Rockies. Builders and installers have to contend with excessive rain, humidity, cold temperatures, and overcast skies, all of which leave a slim margin of error for on-site paint to cure correctly. And if you take the gamble and paint regardless of conditions? You could be left with costly callbacks to fix paint that is now peeling, cracking, flaking, or otherwise ruined.
Allura’s pre-painted fiber cement siding was made with West climates in mind. The fiber cement siding itself can handle anything Mother Nature throws at it and comes with a 50-year warranty. And then there’s the paint itself.
Allura’s siding is pre-painted using their Spectrum™ Color System, which is not your run-of-the-mill retail paint. It’s been specially designed for fiber cement applications for durability that is twice as strong as on-site paint. Applied in a state-of-the-art facility in Oregon, the coverage is smooth, consistent, 26% thicker than regular paint and each board is covered on 5 sides entirely (front, top, bottom, and each end) for more protection against the elements. Plus, if you accidentally knick one edge, simply flip it and install it under the overhang of the next row. No need to discard the board.
Allura offers 25 Spectrum™ Finishing System colors or 5 stains to choose from, with each trend-ready color hand-picked by industry experts, so you’re sure to find the perfect color for your next project.
