Nichiha Unveils Recycled-Content Shake

Nichiha makes a premium shake siding called Sierra but they’ve just unveiled a new fiber-cement shake for those looking for something similar at a lower price point.  Available in July 2011, NichiFrontier is made in Macon, Georgia with 50% recycled content and comes primed or stained in four colors (Hazelnut, Prairie, Shadow, and Terra).  The finish has a 15-year warranty, while the product has a limited lifetime warranty.  NichiFrontier resembles cedar shake and comes in boards of 7/16″ x 9 -1/4″ x 8′.
