Naturetech™ Engineered Wood Products come in a luxurious array of colors, from warm traditional earth tones to bright dramatic contemporary shades. The superior design of Naturetech™ allows for a seamless appearance as all nails are hidden. Naturetech™ complements any house style from traditional to modern, resisting the harshest of climates and only requiring an annual hose-down to keep looking fresh for years. Naturetech™ is 30% thicker than competitive wood or vinyl sidings
Heavy duty 1/2" thickness, Naturetech™ is manufactured with a unique and stringent "no waste" manufacturing process that increases strength, rigidity and durability. Naturetech™ resists termite damage and will not rot, crack or split. With Naturetech™’s patented Tru-Align™ panel interlock system, the panels self align and lock making installation easy while the 8" wide panel results in a faster installation. All this adds up to time, money and energy savings. Long lasting performance with a beautiful finish for any house style, Naturetech™ engineered wood siding is backed by a 25 year warranty against cracking, denting and hail damage and 15 years on the finish.
