Fiber Cement Installation

American Fiber Cement is installed as a ventilated rainscreen.  We recommend the use of Delta-Fassade S for your AWB as it is black and that looks better than blue or green between the panels.  

Our face fastened solution uses rivets and our concealed fastener solution is Dynamic Bond.  Here is a YouTube Dynamic Bond installment video.
