With so many exterior building materials to choose from, it can be difficult to choose when building or remodeling your home. Ensure you consider durability, maintenance, and, of course, appearance. If you are weighing your options, we’ve done the research and have come up with five reasons to choose composite cladding for your home.

1. Strength & Durability 

Cladding should be long-lasting and protect your home for years to come. Composite cladding, such as Gentek’s ALIGN Composite Cladding, is performance-engineered to resist high winds, moisture, fire, smoke, pests, and impact damage. ALIGN Composite Cladding is backed by a lifetime limited warranty, further assurance of exceptional quality, performance and value.

2. Easy to Install 

Composite cladding is strong yet lightweight, making it easier to install than alternative materials such as fiber cement and wood. With ALIGN cladding, the installation is quick and easy, helping you save on installation costs. A single installer from a leading contractor can install ALIGN Composite Cladding with an easy-to-use self-aligning stack lock system.

3. Low Maintenance 

Composite cladding is a low-maintenance material that requires no staining, painting, sealing, or caulking,  so you can save time and money on upkeep. With this innovative product, you can achieve the authentic look of wood with minimal maintenance.

4. Eco-friendly 

Composite cladding offers an eco-friendly solution for homeowners looking for ways to go greener. Composite cladding is a synthetic alternative to timber. ALIGN Composite Cladding is the world’s first composite cladding that incorporates glass-reinforced polymer and graphite-infused polystyrene for superior strength.

5. Realistic Texture & Vibrant Colour 

Composite cladding is embossed with a deep grain texture for a realistic wood finish that gives the illusion of freshly painted wood. ALIGN Composite Cladding takes vibrant colour to the next level with weatherable pigments that ensure superior colour retention for light shades and dark hues.
