CanExel prefinished cladding is produced from wood fibre, resin, and wax fused under pressure. This engineered wood cladding is highly stable, as well as highly resistant to moisture. It also helps optimise our forests’ yield by making the most of technological advances. In short, it does more with less…naturally. Moreover, CanExel cladding is finished in the plant, resulting in durable, easy maintenance products with all the beauty and nobility of wood.


CanExel cladding products are subjected to a continuous quality control process, from forest to finish. Rigorous testing helps assure that each product meets the highest standards of quality.

Advanced baked-on finish

The finish on CanExel cladding consists of five coats of baked-on paint, and a sealer providing increased resistance to cracking, splitting, warping, splintering and buckling of the substrate.

“7-climate” testing

CanExel cladding has been subjected to outdoor testing in seven different climates throughout North America. It has been shown to withstand the intense cold of the Canadian north, the tropical humidity of Florida, the scorching heat of the Arizona desert, the salty air of the Nova Scotia seacoast and the winds that sweep the Saskatchewan prairies.

UV resistance

In every climate zone, CanExel cladding is subjected to UV resistance tests using 45º tilt walls that triple the damaging effects of the sun to which 90º walls would normally be exposed. In every instance, CanExel products have withstood the most extreme conditions without damage to the substrate.


NEW 10 Year Limited Warranty

All CanExel siding products carry a 10-year limited warranty against cracking, deflection, and hail damage as well as a 10-year limited warranty on the finish. For further information, please refer to the full warranty which is available from your retailer.
