Natural wood beauty meets advanced composite technology

Fiberon cladding is the smart choice for beautiful, low-maintenance rain screen exteriors.

Composite Cladding in Action

Rain screens are an effective, eco-friendly way to manage moisture in the building envelope. A key element is durable cladding that deflects water and adds aesthetic appeal. Fiberon cladding is the answer.

Available in eight striking, multi-tonal colors that emulate natural hardwoods, Fiberon composite cladding delivers a range of benefits not found with wood, fiber-cement, or other common materials. A solid wood-composite core prevents splintering, cracking, insect infestation, and decay. The four-sided, patented PermaTech® cap layer delivers exceptional stain and fade resistance. Fiberon cladding is easy to install and never needs painting, staining, or refinishing, so long-term costs of ownership are significantly lower, too.

  • FAQs
    Is cladding a new product for Fiberon?

    No, cladding is a new application for our Symmetry and Horizon decking products, both recognized for their stunning wood-like aesthetics, lasting durability, and easy maintenance. Fiberon cladding gives architects and specifiers a beautiful, long-lasting design option that never needs re-painting, re-staining, or re-finishing – and that can mean significant savings on long-term maintenance costs.

    Why would I choose a decking product for a cladding application?

    Fiberon composite boards have been tested and trusted by contractors for years. They have been designed and manufactured to withstand the rigors of regular foot traffic without sacrificing appearance or performance, so you can feel confident when specifying them for cladding projects.

    Plus, unlike ordinary cladding options, Fiberon composite cladding won’t peel, split, crack, or rot. It’s dimensionally stable, easy to install, and deflects only negligible amounts of water – unlike brick or stucco, which absorb water quite readily.

    Where can I find Fiberon cladding?

    Like all Fiberon products, the cladding is available through a wide network of Fiberon distributors and dealers. Use our “Where to Buy” tool to locate the Fiberon dealer nearest to you.

    Does Fiberon provide a complete rain screen system solution?

    Fiberon offers a durable composite cladding that provides an elegant wood-like façade for a rain screen application. Cladding is only one component within a rain screen system.

    Other elements include: weather-resistive barrier (rated for continuous UV exposure), furring material, and flashing at all penetration points and cladding transitions.

    Note that the air gap between the weather-resistive barrier and exterior cladding can be as narrow as 3/8.” This will still enable drainage and drying.

    Fiberon composite cladding is a smart choice for rain screen applications because it is easy to source, install, and maintain; does not absorb water readily; and is available in a wide range of rich wood tones, each with multi-tonal streaking and authentic grain patterns.
