For homeowners with Celect® Exteriors by Royal®, the good life is having the most curb-appealing exterior—and the most carefree maintenance—on the block. Actually, it’s a great life. A wonderful, mold-repelling, mildew-defying, insect-rejecting life.

Long-term maintenance takes its toll in time, inconvenience and cost. But not with Celect. It won’t delaminate because its cellular materials won’t let it. Unlike fiber cement, it eliminates the need for painting, repainting, caulking and re-caulking. Plus its deep, rich Kynar Aquatec®–coated colors never fade.

Bad weather can strike at any time. So we test our products to better withstand worst-case scenarios: hurricanes, UV rays, snowstorms, and more. But it’s not only extremes that break down siding—the change of seasons does a number on materials such as vinyl (which may crack in the cold) and wood products (which expand and contract with changes in moisture and humidity). Only James Hardie products are Engineered for Climate®.

WRC-Shingles-3-200x300At Edmund Allen Lumber, they have been finishing cedar and related siding products at their facility since 1962. Numerous studies have been done and the results are unanimous: Factory Finishing is the most uniform, economical, and effective way to protect exterior siding and trim. With real wood siding such as cedar, a US Forest Products joint coatings committee study determined that adhesion on “raw” boards was compromised with as little as two weeks of exposure to the elements. To avoid peeling, blistering and flaking, we coat clean, dry substrate, in a controlled setting, with state of the art coatings and equipment. Their highly trained personnel can apply these coatings to cedar and composite boards, bevel, panels, sheet goods, and even individual cedar shingles.
