“Pura NFC is a versatile solution for most siding projects and gives maximum design freedom with a long lasting, beautiful finish. The sidings can be installed either vertically or horizontally. They can be easily handled and are simple to cut. Pura NFC is the perfect answer for both innovative and traditional projects.”
What benefits will I get using Pura NFC Siding? (And how long will they last?)

- Pura siding exteriors keeps its vibrant, just installed, color for the life of the siding.
- Pura siding is made to combat UV rays and heat, to resist fading and warping of your siding material.
- Pura siding will not easily dents, scratch, puncture or split from everyday wear and tear, including extreme weather.
- Rubbing tree limbs, errant soccer balls, and flying storm debris are a much lower threat than to Pura NFC siding than fiber cement siding or vinyl siding materials.

Traditional Rainscreen Installation method for Pura NFC Siding
The traditional Pura Siding installation method uses wood furring strips with the Pura flush siding profile to create the rainscreen gap. A siding "rainscreen gap" is what allows moisture to escape from behind your siding, and not all rainscreen gaps are the same.
Because traditional siding installation can create pockets in the furring strip sections, where moisture can get trapped, hardwood furring strips are recommended. Hardwood furring strips are have stronger resistance to mold and rot from moisture than pine and softwoods.

Climate-Shield Rainscreen Installation method for Pura NFC Siding
The Climate-Shield Rainscreen System is made with an aluminum profile, so no wood furring strips behind your exterior. The rainscreen system allows your Pura siding to “breathe” and moisture to escape.
Why is this important? It allows moisture to go through and out the siding easily, by easy draining or evaporation. No furring strips means there are no trapped pockets of moisture and no wood to for mold and rot to attack. This makes for a healthier, lower maintenance home exterior.
