More and more homeowners from Canada and the U.S. are opting for pultruded-fiberglass siding, a recently improved long-lasting and easily maintainable siding when compared to conventional wood, vinyl and fiber cement sidings.
APEX pultruded-fiberglass siding with Ultrex over fiber cement, vinyl and wood siding
Pultruded-fiberglass trim and siding with Ultrex created by APEX Siding System is an improved version of trim and siding that is stronger than fiber cement but displays the allure of authentic wood. This new type of siding has been created especially to fight harsh weather conditions and to provide home owners a low-upkeep solution to maintain exteriors of their homes. Hence, Professional Remodeler and Professional Builder magazines recently commended APEX Sidingfor being among the top 101 new products of 2012. Besides being environmentally friendly, the product provides lasting exterior embellishment with a life of at least 50 years. It comes in 10 attractive and durable colors, in widths of 4 and 7 inches and in grainy wood and smooth veneers. APEX siding and trim has an acrylic finish that is four times wider than the paint coated on wood or fiber cement and withstands distortion, chipping, and discoloration.
APEX Siding is made from Ultrexpultruded fiberglass, an ingredient created by Marvin, which is the main ingredient in the highly rated Integrity and Infinity ranges of doors and windows for over 20 years. The product is a color-matched seamless interlocking siding that fits tight to the surface. Harsh weather does not cause it to get distorted unlike conventional siding materials. The Ultrexpultruded fiberglass is designed to not retain moisture and yet let free air flow, thus preventing mold and rot. APEX trim and siding is made from unadulterated sand, making it environmentally friendly. The long-lasting colors and durability of the material save users the hassle of re-painting and caulking often.
