Waterproof Siding - Siding That Will Not Rot

By: Linda Keating - Everlast Polymeric Cladding (aka Everlast Composite Siding) is waterproof!  It has no moisture wicking wood fibers – which mean it will not retain moisture that can lead to swelling or warping. Because it will not absorb water, it will give you the advantage of longevity of life with this unique product.   Everlast is 60% pulverized stone and 40% polymers. Stone will not absorb water and will not rot, which means you will never have any issues with standing water or build- up of snow and ice and have the siding rot or disintegrate.  It is the perfect siding for the weather we have in New England. There is no other siding that has the density of wood that will not rot.

Your alternatives that actually look like wood clapboard--unlike vinyl siding are Cedar and Fiber Cement.  Both Cedar and Fiber Cement siding will both wick water and will rot over time.  Fiber cement cannot be installed in close proximity to surfaces that hold snow or areas where water flows or else it delaminates and falls apart.

Everlast siding will never rot. And for your benefit, it has a double lifetime warranty!

I have fiber cement on my home and it has started to rot after less than 5 years! I wish I knew about this product before doing my siding. Good info for future reference.

Polymeric Cladding is very common in these days and thousands of people place these Damp proofing sidings in their homes. I knew that it is a little bit expensive but we should go for it.
