2. Durable in All Weather Conditions: SHERA's wood subtitute (fibrecement) is produced using Auto Clave technology which is the use of high-pressured steam to rid the wood of moisture, resulting in its low shrinking and stretching ratio. So, whether it is exposed to sunlight, wind or rain, it will not shrink or stretch, unlike natural wood that can stretch so much that it causes gaps between the joints. Not only can SHERA Wood be used for both interior and exterior purposes, it is also resistant to fire, minimizing the damage in case of fire.
