ATLANTA, Ga. – MoistureShield®, a division of Oldcastle APG®, a CRH Company, has unveiled its latest composite innovation, MoistureShield Cladding. Resembling rich, natural hardwoods without the extra upkeep, MoistureShield Cladding offers a durable, low maintenance finish while adding an elegant aesthetic to any exterior. 

“We are thrilled to announce MoistureShield’s Vision® and Meridian™ capped composite decking lines are available for cladding use,” said Matthew Bruce, Vice President of Sales, MoistureShield. “MoistureShield Cladding meets the heightened demand for attractive, high-performance exterior solutions by offering enhanced durability and sophisticated architectural detail for any outdoor environment.” 

Featuring MoistureShield’s proprietary Solid Core™ manufacturing process, the new cladding is protected against moisture absorption, warping, rotting, and damage from insects on all four sides. This ensures the resilient, color-enriched composite cladding will withstand the elements, providing a natural aesthetic that doesn’t require staining or painting. MoistureShield also offers the only cladding-approved deck board rated for use in the ground, on the ground, or under water.  

MoistureShield’s Vision DiamondDefense™ coating is the strongest cap in the industry and is available in a wide selection of colors including Smokey Gray, Spanish Leather, Cold Brew, Mochaccino, Cathedral Stone and Sandstone. Meridian’s TruTexture™ Surface features reduced pattern repetition and a true wood-grain finish in rich colors of Citadel, Shoreside and Mariner. 

Manufactured with 95% recycled content with eligibility to earn LEED green building credit, MoistureShield Cladding utilizes MoistureShield capped composite decking, which is field-proven for 30 years with zero structural failures and is backed by a 50-year transferrable structural warranty for all decking series.
