Accoya Wood Siding
Accoya® is 100% solid wood that is modified to the core using a non-toxic proprietary acetylation process. Thanks to its long service life and durability, it requires much less maintenance and fewer coatings than other woods. Since the wood won’t warp or split due to inclement weather, it holds up the “flat” look many people try to achieve as well, improving solar shading.
Accoya® wood is warranted against rot and decay for 50 years above ground or 25 years in-ground/fresh water contact. It can be trusted not to visibly swell, shrink, or distort and is highly resistant to insect damage. Your customers can enjoy peace of mind, knowing their wood siding projects will last for decades.
