Cladding your house: A guide

Step 1: Is Cladding Right for Your Home?

If you’re looking for long-lasting, effective and attractive protection from the elements for your home, then weatherboard cladding is for you.

As well as its beautiful simplicity, house cladding provides many benefits including:

  • Excellent insulation to keep you warm and your energy use down
  • Stays looking great with very little maintenance 
  • Highly durable and has an expected lifetime of 50 years
  • Protects against all weather conditions, from harsh summer sun to freezing snow
  • It won’t warp, lose colour or harbour pests
  • Is made from fully tested fire-retardant material

  • Cedral Click – this style of cladding features boards that fit flush with one another for a perfectly flat and contemporary finish.
