The Harbour, a 188-unity luxury condo community on the shores of Lake Erie, in Sandusky, Ohio, got belted with hailstorms in 2008 and 2010. The cedar siding on many of the buildings was unrepairable and unsightly. The homeowner association contracted Mid Ohio Improvements to replace the cedar with Everlast Advanced Composite Siding in Seaside Gray. The color is inherent in the composition of the panels, so painting is never required.

Everlast is produced from a proprietary formulation of inorganic minerals, polymeric resins, and acrylic colorants. Unlike other siding products on the market, the color is inherent in its composition—not painted on—which means that the siding will never need to be re-painted, and will remain beautiful for the lifetime of the building.

“For the past 17 years, the biggest problem we’ve had on the property is the cedar siding,” says Bob Morrow, Property Manager. “By putting this product on our buildings, it alleviates the problem with the maintenance of having to repaint every four or five years.”
