- Where to Buy
Builders have been using traditional materials like stone, brick and wood for centuries. These materials are highly sought after and greatly desired for homeowners to achieve a beautiful exterior aesthetic. What if you could have the same traditional look but at a fraction of the cost and up to half of the installation time? Then you need Qora. The Qora Cladding Collection provides builders, remodeling contractors, and manufactured housing building trades with the time-honored look of natural exterior siding materials and accessories, but in a simple, fast, and cost effective cladding solution.
Qora cladding is available in several surface color options to match your desired look. Thanks to an innovative surfacing technology (under license from Acell Industries Ltd with respect to US Patent No. 9,610,759) it is absolutely indistinguishable from stone, brick and wood on the outside.
With a brand new material inside, and true beauty on the outside, Qora was born from the belief that there could finally be a cladding collection without trade-offs.
A combined rigid foam core and fiberglass-reinforced compound is surfaced with genuine source materials to make Qora look as authentic as the real thing. Unlike other cladding products, Qora incorporates real materials into its manufacturing process to give the surface texture the look and feel of real stone, brick, and wood. Plain and simple: Qora looks amazing.
Qora’s patented materials and unique designs create a lightweight and durable product. Most Qora cladding panels weigh between 2 and 3 pounds per square foot which is a fraction of the weight of comparable traditional materials. Lighter weight cladding systems can more easily mitigate cracking, foundation impacts, and other issues associated with heavy cladding materials.
Qora is manufactured using a proprietary phenolic resin and compounding technology. Layers of pigments, surfacing materials (where applicable), fiberglass reinforced molding compound, and open cell phenolic rigid foam are pressed and chemically bonded to ensure long term durability and performance.
Each Qora panel has built-in 1/4” Breather Button offsets to allow free movement of liquid water and vapor. The built-in rain screen helps to manage moisture by keeping water away from the wall assembly, reducing the risk of water damage over time.
Each Qora cladding panel covers up to 8 sf per piece which speeds installation and helps ensure a flat and uniform wall. Compared to traditional materials, Qora panels create more simplified wall systems that are easier to maintain and repair.
