YellaWood Pressure-treated Pine
YellaWood pressure-treated pine offers a wide range of quality options from #2 Common to C&BTR KDAT (Kiln Dried After Treatment). Choose from dimensional lumber, decking, siding, plywood, fencing, columns, specialty posts and much more. Backed by a Lifetime Residential and Agricultural Limited Warranty, the YellaWood pressure-treatment process forces a waterborne preservative deep into the structure of the wood, providing long-term protection against rot, fungal decay and termite attack. While much of the process used to treat southern yellow pine is a trade secret, it has been thoroughly tested by the Scientific Certification Systems lab or SCS, a leader in environmentally-friendly building product certification. YellaWood products are treated with the first wood preservative process to achieve EPP certification and also carries the world-renowned UL GREENGUARD Gold certification. What’s more, builders can earn up to 18 points toward NGBS certification. Visit yellawood.com.
DaVinci Roofscapes Composite Siding
DaVinci Roofscapes has launched a new line of composite siding that features the appearance of authentic cedar shakes. DaVinci Hand-Split Shake Siding products are available in eight colors. The new composite siding shakes resist impact, fire, mold, algae, insects, salt air and high winds. And, while they’ll look as attractive as real cedar, they won’t curl, cup or split like real cedar. Each tile in the siding line is 18 inches tall with a 5/8-in. thickness and comes in 8- or 10-in. widths. The 10-in. pieces have a simulated keyway to give the appearance of 4- and 6-in. width shakes placed together to provide a multi-width appearance. Made of virgin resins, UV and thermal stabilizers plus a highly-specialized fire retardant, the siding is resistant to expansion and contraction that can happen with fluctuating weather conditions and temperatures. DaVinci has introduced five new colors for the DaVinci Hand-Split Shake Siding product line: Bark, Granite, Sage, Slate Blue and Taupe. Three additional color blends from the Nature Crafted Collection will also be available in the siding profiles: Aged Cedar, Black Oak and Mossy Cedar. Visit www.davinciroofscapes.com.
