Only Real Rain Screen Siding is real wood with unsurpassed durability and beauty. It’s naturally resistant to rot and decay and requires little or no maintenance.
Why Use Real Rain Screen™ Siding?
Nothing beats the beauty of Real Wood. Shiplap siding of Ipe, Purpleheart, Massaranduba and other premium hardwoods is unique in appearance and many choices are available for color preference.
RealWood˙ hardwood lumber is rated to last a lifetime – 40 to 100 years! Real Rain Screen™ siding also provides better protection from mold causing moisture than other construction methods.
Easy to Install
Our signature H-clip and siding profile system makes installation easy. Installation provides channels in the walls, which allow the siding to breathe eliminating moisture and minimizing thermal transfer
Brazilian hardwood does not need any painting or finishing. It will remain durable and rot resistant for a lifetime. Finish application is required for color maintenance but not to maintain durability.
Hardwood Species Guide
Premium RealWood™ hardwood provides unsurpassed durability and beauty. RealWood™ hardwood is naturally resistant to rot and decay and harvested in the Central and South Americas. No pressure-treating with protective chemicals is required.
Pressure treated siding requires annual maintenance to retain its termite protection and resistance to rot and decay. Softer woods like oak, redwood and pine are not as realwood certifiedresistant to weather and rot and are easily eaten by bugs. Because it is naturally resistant, RealWood™ hardwood remains maintenance-free*.
Real Rain Screen™ installation requires furring strips fastened to exterior walls over a vapor barrier. Siding is fastened to furring strips – most commonly with 16” centers. Our coated aluminum H-clips are installed using our Magni 599 rust and saltwater resistant coated square drive screws. This installation provides channels in the walls, which allow the siding to breathe eliminating moisture and minimizing thermal transfer.

Entrapped moisture is not only a problem in wet climates. Even in dry areas, moisture trapped in a wall system can result in rot, rust, and mold. The structural integrity of the wall is at stake, as is the health of the occupants. Proper installation is crucial to the effectiveness of Real Rain Screen™.
