It is possible that you are looking for a siding product that gives even greater esthetic appeal. Fiber Cement and Celect siding products have become very popular for this reason. While both of these sidings offer much more that what you would find in traditional vinyl siding they are constructed from very different materials from one another and therefore, have different advantages.
Fiber cement most often consists of overlapping horizontal boards that imitate what you find in wood siding, and clapboard. Fiber cement cladding is a very heavy product and requires at least two people to carry uncut sheets. Thin fiber cement cladding is also fragile before installation. It is a material that has to be handled carefully as it is prone to chipping and breakage if handled improperly. Even after sheets have been cut you still need two individuals to install it. Cutting fiber cement siding requires a mechanized saw with a diamond blade (masonry blade), and the dust can be hazardous if inhailed.
Celect® Cellular Composite Siding by Royal® is made from recyclable, state-of-the-art cellular PVC materials.Every style is equally unaffected by mold, mildew, weather and the effects of time.
Celect siding, as an alternative, is a combination of wood grain aesthetics, low maintenance, durability and structural integrity. One great advantage is the seam. Instead of butting siding pieces together, Celect siding has an innovative, patent pending interlocking joint system. This seam maintains its integrity and because of this, the cellular material is unaffected by moisture, and the seams doesn’t break down over time.
Celect gives you a great look with depth that in the past you could only achieve with wood siding, only this material requires little daily maintenance unlike wood that needs yearly staining and painting. Celect is constructed as an unfinished PVC product that is painted with a kynar finish that is the best for UV protecting protection with minimal fading. There is a 25 year warranty on the finish. The Celect is also much more light weight that you find in Fiber cement and doesn’t require specialized equipment or blades to cut it. What this means is that installation is easier. There are a variety of molds, trims, crown molding and more that can be used to give even greater esthetic appeal around windows, edges and corners which increase the curb appeal of your home or business.
While both products give you the rich look of wood textures, only Celect siding offers the advances that Fiber cement can’t. Because of easiness to work with, means that it can be installed faster and therefore lowing the cost of installation. Celect offers superiority on every level.
