LONGBOARD SIDING

Longboard siding made a revolution in the area of house renovations. It’s a very beautiful covering, which offers a wide range of benefits to landowners. The material for cladding is produced out of extruded aluminum, which provides the basic qualities of the covering. The anodized finish & powder coating add extra protection. The surface is created to imitate natural wood without any cold metallic look. Longboard covering’s a wonderful solution for both commercial & residential buildings. The cladding system meets the AAMA 509-9 Rainscreen certification, which adds to its reliability.
