“The ABC Supply Company - Catalog Division is pleased to bring Qora Cladding to ABC Supply customers and our branches,” said Steve Sayles, business development manager, ABC Supply - Catalog Division. “We were looking for a traditional stone alternative that would offer our customers the opportunity to give their homeowners the look they want at a fraction of the cost, in terms of product and installation speed. In addition, Qora Cladding gives our stores a unique selling proposition of a quality stone aesthetic which offers all the benefits and durability of the real thing, and that is panelized for improved coverage and installed quickly with general carpentry tools.”

Lightweight yet durable, it is the only stone panelized cladding product that is indistinguishable from the real thing and ideal for exterior accents including knee wall, wainscoting and accent wall applications.
