The Look That Lasts

Not all wood siding and decking is made the same. GemThane® is a unique product, and represents a revolution in wood products for homes and cottages.
GemThane is a low-maintenance, pre-finished wood system that offers the warmth, charm and value-enhancing properties of real wood siding and decking without the upkeep. GemThane’s polymer coating system is revolutionary. There is nothing else like it, anywhere.
Polymer, not paint
GemThane wood is encapsulated by a tough multi-layer polymer coating. Other brands of pre-finished siding and decking are simply painted with ordinary latex paint or stain. Coatings cure by a chemical reaction unlike paints and stains which merely dry through evaporation. At a glance, both products look similar, but the performance difference is drastic.
Our system starts with marine-grade resins and then we add the GemThane touch. The first layer of totally waterproof polymer is fortified with a safe fungicide that lasts for the life of the coating. The topcoat is protected with invisible ceramic nanospheres, a concept just now appearing in luxury car finishes. The result is a surface that is extremely resistant to erosion, impact, driving rain, and climatic extremes.
Relax, it's GemThane!

The coatings used in the manufacture of GemThane products are so waterproof, they could be used to line your swimming pool! The coating resists unsightly knot bleed-through. The impervious surface doesn't absorb dirt, so it's a breeze to clean. Unlike painted wood, GemThane wood siding and decking can be power washed year after year. Everything from dirt and grease to unpleasant spider webbing washes right off because the surface is so non-absorbent.
While no product is totally maintenance-free over the long term, GemThane is as good as it gets. All you do on an annual basis is inspect for damage and areas that might require a light touch-up.

Fraser Wood Siding was founded in 1990 after we recognized the need for a quality specialties manufacturer in the North American market. The forest products market is constantly changing, and we have continued to meet the demands of our growing list of customers in the Eastern United States and Canada. In 1997, we proudly announced the opening of our new factory staining facility in Edmundston, New Brunswick for staining of Eastern White and Western Red Cedar shingles with Cabot's Factory Finish. This enabled us to provide our customers with the finest in value-added stained cedar shingles.
