Live Webinar: Factory Prefinishing of Exterior Building Materials; A Sustainable Practice

Cladding products start with the most natural, healthy, and sustainable resource available – wood. That wood is then engineered, machined, and coated to create a full line of siding and trim products that deliver performance, stability, and beauty. The finished products can be specified on any project; residential and non-residential projects alike with BC companies shipping throughout North America and Globally. This session will be presented by an industry professional from Woodtone.
