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