Is Pura hard to install?

The installation of Pura NFC siding typically requires a skilled carpenter, as it involves exact measurements, cutting, and attachment. If you have experience with siding installation, you may find Trespa Pura siding much like installing other siding materials.

The traditional method of installing Pura siding horizontally is to use wood furring strips to create a rainscreen gap behind the siding. The siding attaches to the furring strips. Furring strips are also needed to attach the exterior trim, too.

For installations over exterior plywood or OSB sheathing, though, the Climate-Shield CST1 attachment system saves lots of time. With Climate-Shield clips and starter rails, you don’t need any furring strips behind the siding. The clips automatically set the proper rainscreen gap. With CST components, the only place you need to use furring strips is to attach the trim.

Is it worth the price?

The cost of Pura NFC siding may be higher than some other siding options initially. However, its long-term durability and performance can make it a cost-effective choice over the life of the building. Pura is known for its low maintenance requirements, which can save you time and money over the long term. If you want cladding material that doesn't require frequent upkeep and never needs re-painting, it may be well worth the initial investment.

In summary, Pura NFC siding is a premium cladding option that offers durability, aesthetic versatility, and low maintenance benefits, making it a suitable choice for various light commercial projects. Its worthiness in terms of price can be justified by its long-term performance and the enhanced appearance it can provide to your commercial building.
