WallCrete cement boards are made from a complex process that blends seasonal Portland cement, specially prepared lightweight aggregate, with specially processed water critical to the product, and custom designed fiberglass sheeting, folded together in both square and tapered edges, making a unique product that is highly versatile, yet affordable.

WallCrete is specifically designed for interior and exterior applications. A few examples are:

  • Exterior walls {a specialty}
  • Kitchens
  • High humidity areas such as bathrooms and showers
  • Interior walls and partitions
  • Floors and Walkways
  • Soffits
  • Fencing

Ceilings in wet or dry areas.

WallCrete board is applicable for high heat areas such as fireplace fronts and wall shield /floor protectors.

WallCrete board can also be used for fences at tremendous savings compared to block walls. It can be stucco finished to match the rest of the property's structures. It can be also be used in mobile home skirting, agricultural buildings and many other uses.

Product Advantages

There are numerous advantages with using WallCrete cement boards over a typical plywood exterior wall application, here are just a few:

  • WallCrete boards are highly water and mold resistant - a big benefit in flood zone areas. Our wallboard does not swell, warp, delaminate, or disintegrate when exposed to water.
  • WallCrete boards are non-combustible - concrete/fiberglass does not burn well!
  • WallCrete boards meet the industry standard for freeze and thaw resistance.
  • WallCrete wallboards are lower in cost per square foot than exterior grade plywood.
  • WallCrete board can be easily applied to wood or steel framed structures.
  • WallCrete cement board is vermin proof. (Mice, termites, etc.)
  • WallCrete boards are environmentally friendly. No trees are cut down to make our product.
  • Using WallCrete boards will take several steps out of a typical stucco exterior wall installation: The old stucco system required the use of chicken wire, scratch coat, grey coat, and finally a color coat, all of which must be kept moist in the procedure and can take from 7 to 30 days to finish. Compare this to the WallCrete system of taping with a fiberglass alkali resistant tape, applying thin set mortar to the taped seams and immediately applying an elastomeric color coating of your choice and you are finished, having saved substantial time and money. The finished product will be a quality that can not be matched in appearance and trueness and durability by any of the old stucco systems.
  • When you install WallCrete board and its exterior finish to our specifications, and with Wall Crete's naturally low thermal and hygrometric expansion and high flexural strength, you will find cracked and/ or peeling exterior finishes are highly unlikely and unusual. We have a structure in the Central Valley of California that is over 8 years old with absolutely no cracks in the finish. Temperature variations have been from winter low's in the 20 degrees range to over 110 degrees during the summers.
  • WallCrete is easy to score and snap cutting for quick ease of installation.
  • WallCrete cement boards when mounted properly, with the seams taped and sealed per instructions, becomes a solid wall that meets or and potentially exceeds the sheer value of plywood. {We have performed preliminary testing with the Maryland Homebuilders Association, showing board integrity and sheer value meeting or exceeding plywood.} WallCrete becomes a solid cement wall on completion and this creates several advantages, one is that it will be more difficult to damage in high winds.
  • WallCrete cement board is available in 32", 36" and 48"widths, in lengths ranging from 60" to 96" and in 1/4", 1/2" 5/16" and 5/8" thicknesses. (Custom sizes and thickness' are also available upon request.)
  • The edges of the WallCrete board are wrapped in production to square edges or tapered edges to meet any demand. They are available with and without tapered edges to meet with the needs of each individual application.
  • WallCrete can be easily mounted and finished by anyone.
  • It is also a perfect product for a remodeling that can be finished in one or two days by a contractor or motivated homeowner. If a wall is damaged, all that needs to be done is to cut out the section and replace it with WallCrete board for a durable lasting repair.
  • There is an easy to understand installation DVD that is available, along with professional support for our customers.
