The Board & Batten style is recognized by the exterior cladding of vertical slats rather than horizontal. Typically, this type of siding is offered in wood planks, high-density fiberboard (HDF) engineered siding, or made of fiber cement siding. However, wood requires regular maintenance, and both fiber cement or HDF engineered siding are heavy and time-consuming to install.
With Rialux's Bolton collection, you have access to ultra-resistant and lightweight aluminum siding, which is easy and quick to install and boasts exceptional longevity.
At first glance, the advantage of aluminum exterior siding is the ease of installation, especially in comparison to the lightweight nature of the material (6.5 lbs per panel), particularly when compared to wood or fiber cement siding. You won't have trouble finding help for your project! Much less a good contractor to install it.
High-quality aluminum must meet all industry standards, including those related to the rigors of the Canadian winter. By applying Rialux products with maximum adhesion and a finishing layer for protection against fading and UV rays, you obtain a highly durable, maintenance-free siding, guaranteed for 25 years.
Aluminum products do not rust and are classified as zero fire hazard according to NFPA classification standards. As a result, you can have peace of mind, regardless of the weather.
Apart from cleaning with a hose (no high-pressure), aluminum requires no painting over the years, no additional caulking over the years, or adding new staining or painting every 5 to 7 years, as is the case with wooden boards.
Complete your aluminum exterior siding in 25% less time than Canexel, fiber cement, or vinyl
The design of aluminum siding allows you to enjoy a much faster installation technique. Much like engineered flooring, the panels are locked to each other by a click-lock mechanism. No specific tools are needed. This method reduces the usual time required by 25% compared to any other type of exterior siding.
The Bolton collection suits all environments
Certain types of exterior sidings offer shades of red, blue, green, and yellow that may be rejected by the municipality. On the contrary, the colors of the Bolton collection of Board and Batten-style aluminum siding are understated and respectful of any environment. Whether it's a property in the city, the suburbs, or a more rustic or natural setting, they blend in seamlessly.
