It would be easy for any siding to deliver protection if everyone lived in the same climate and had the same temperature extremes—or not—with which to contend. But because the country ranges from cold to hot, humid to dry and windy to tranquil, RISE trim and siding products are designed to deliver protection from coast to coast.
IN THE Northwest
RISE is the perfect alternative for builders and homeowners in the Northwest who admire the true look of wood, and who also experience heavy moisture on a regular basis. Homeowners in the coastal areas that line the islands and along the shoreline need protection from salty spray and windy conditions. Many residents of the Northwest appreciate the look of wood but also value the natural resources it takes to build and maintain that look. RISE product’s short synthetic fibers and polymer core help provide a clean, smooth surface, which provides protection from mold and mildew, as it’s easy to wipe down.
IN THE NORTHEAST
New Englanders often embrace the seasons and appreciate the snow and their classic clapboard aesthetic. The high moisture-resistant qualities of RISE products make them the perfect siding and trim choice for New England and throughout the Northeast. RISE products are manufactured to withstand the 100-degree temperature swings, repeated freeze/thaw cycles and the salty environment that comes with coastal living that also has snow as a bonus weather feature. RISE products’ long synthetic fibers and polymer core provide the strength that protects in this climate.
In the mid-atlantic and south
RISE trim and siding perform exceptionally well in the high heat of the southern U.S., where water and humidity are a dual weather combination that can be hard on a home’s exterior. Heavy rains from April to October add to water vapor to the air, which meteorologists describe as absolute humidity and relative humidity. But whether it’s absolute or relative humidity, a home’s exterior in the South or mid-Atlantic needs protection from it. In addition to the salty environment along the coast, both the mid-Atlantic and the South are high UV areas, with more than 200 days per year with high UV indexes. RISE products’ protective water barrier on both the top and bottom resist the double punch of heat and humidity.
IN THE MIDWEST
Hot and humid summers than can swing 100 degrees into bitterly cold winters (with heavy snow) and moisture throughout the year make the Midwest the ideal location for RISE to prove itself protecting homes. RISE trim and siding products have low expansion and contraction, and are extremely decay resistant. The temperature swings set the stage for multiple freeze/thaw cycles. RISE products shine in these extremes, providing protection no matter what nature stirs up.
It performs and protects, but most importantly, it preserves.
