There are a lot of benefits to using fiber cement siding on your home’s exterior. Not only is fiber cement siding one of the most durable and low-maintenance products out there, it’s quickly becoming the number one choice with builders as well. One of the reasons for the popularity of the product is its ability to be pre-finished in numerous bold, vivid colors and stains, eliminating the time and expense of needing to prep and paint the siding after its installation. Pre-finished fiber cement siding products not only help make the product easier to install; the technology used to create them also helps ensure that these bold, true colors continue to stay true year after year. There’s no peeling, chipping, or fading of the colors when you use pre-finished fiber cement, which helps ensure that this is the lowest maintenance material you will ever install on your home, while also remaining once of the most beautiful.
PPG Industries has been the industry leader in factory applied finishes for more than three decades. That’s because of their commitment to surface design and the quality of the product. PPG is responsible for paints and color technologies that have been used on the Oval Office and by NASA, which means that you can trust the quality of their colors.
This same PPG color technology is used in Allura’s ColorMax paint system for their fiber cement products. This innovative coating helps ensure that your pre-finished fiber cement siding doesn’t peel, chip, fade, or require any upkeep. In fact, every pre-finished fiber cement product that Allura carries has a 15 year finish warranty. So no matter what climate your home is in, you don’t have to worry about the effects of the weather on your siding’s finish.

A Superior Product from Start to Finish
In addition to having a finish that will hold up to whatever Mother Nature throws at it, the pre-finished fiber cement siding products from Allura are built to last in other ways as well. Allura was launched in 2014 by Plycem USA Inc. – one of the leading manufacturers of fiber cement products and trim.
The Allura fiber cement cladding line has a unique formulation that gives the product incredible flexibility and strength. This means that your pre-finished fiber cement products won’t warp, crack, dent or show any of the signs of wear other products are known for.
The special textured finish on each of the fiber cement products results in better color adhesion as well. Combined with the ColorMax system, this ensures even, consistent coverage of color, as well as consistent wear. Because of the unique manufacturing process, the grain of the fiber cement planks also repeats less frequently, giving you a more realistic appearance for your siding, with true, bolder colors at the same time.

Pre-finished fiber cement products aren’t just limited to horizontal lap siding. You can find the same attention to detail and long-wearing, bold finishes on the entire product line. This includes not only horizontal siding, but fiber cement panels, trim, half-rounds, octagons, soffits, and shakes. So no matter what type of architectural features your home has, you can easily mix and match various pre-finished fiber cement products to meet your needs, getting the same quality, durability, and long-wearing, true, bold color.
