Cladding products start with the most natural, healthy, and sustainable resource available to the building trades – wood. That wood is then engineered, machined, and coated to create a full line of siding and trim products that deliver performance, stability, and beauty.

This session identifies causes for on-site exterior paint failure issues and how these factors can be eliminated through factory pre-finishing. Then examines the factory coating process for pre-finished exterior woodworks and substrate materials from an industry leader that supplies exterior cladding solutions across North America. Case studies of exterior building materials in multi-family, education, custom homes, resort/hospitality, production homes, and commercial developments will also be studied.

This session will be presented by an industry professional from Woodtone.
