What is composite?

Composite is a aluminum skin bonded to a thermoplastic core without the use of adhesive. The material is rout, bent or rolled to form a Wall Panel, Column Covers, Soffit or Fascia. There are only a handfull of manufacturers producing this type of product.

The most popular system utilizes is a caulk joint. After review the installed of the project and replacing any damage panels the seams are then chalk to make the panel joints weather-tight.

The second most popular system is a Rain Screen. This system utilizes an aluminum extruded border around the panel and is installed on an extruded framing system that is attached to the wall.
