Wood Siding - Beauty, Performance, Value
Nova offers a wide selection of options when it comes to exotic hardwood siding in Red Balau, Batu, Mahogany,
Ipe, Cumaru, Yellow Balau and other tropical hardwoods. We have years of experience supplying our customers with
some of the most incredible wood siding products available. Natural hardwood siding is durable and absolutely
stunning! Using our naturally durable and strong woods as siding is certainly one of the most beautiful ways to
provide your home or commercial building with a unique touch of class.
Wood siding can be provided in just about any pattern desired, whether you want a traditional
bevel siding or shiplap rainscreen siding - or a more contemporary look for your home. Our Batu Mahogany hardwood siding has
become very popular as an alternate to Western Red Cedar and California Redwood. Especially when it
comes to clear grade products such as bevel siding and rainscreen wood siding, our Batu hardwood siding is much more durable,
more consistent in color, and an outstanding value.

Rich Color Requires Regular Reapplication of Oil Finish
Wood siding products produced from naturally durable hardwoods will maintain their structural integrity as they age, and will gradually age to
a lustrous silver-grey if left untreated. To retain the rich natural color, we recommend
a high quality penetrating oil finish with ultraviolet inhibitors every 2-3 years on vertical surfaces.
Regular cleaning and reapplication of finish will ensure that the hardwood siding retains its
natural beauty for many years. Nova offers an oil finish perfect for exotic wood
siding and decking applications called ExoShield along with online instructions
on how to finish your hardwood siding.

Wood Siding Installation Considerations
Installing Batu Mahogany, Ipe or Cumaru hardwood siding cannot be done in exactly the same manner as softwoods such as Cedar or Redwood. Hardwoods have a higher amount of movement and
the design of the siding system must take into account up to 1/4" of movement when the boards go from dry conditions to wet conditions over the seasons.
We recommend an air gap Rainscreen system such as Nova's ExoClad QuickClip, Climate Shield, Cor-A-Vent or furring strips placed behind the hardwood siding. Installation
of gutters and flashings is also critical so that water does not run directly down the side of the building.
If using furring strips, stainless steel fasteners are required and should be screwed through the face. The boards also need to be predrilled in order
to prevent splitting during installation. Finally, a high quality oil finish such as Nova's ExoShield must be applied on all sides to protect your hardwood siding from the elements.
End cuts must be sealed with end wax such as Anchorseal or Ipe Seal from DeckWise.
