How to fit weatherboard cladding
The installation of Cedral weatherboard cladding is very similar to the method explained further down, with some key differences and potential complications.
The cladding battens are much larger to allow for increased airflow, and must be fitted a set distance apart and screwed in a certain place to prevent the boards from rattling in strong wind. A DPC membrane must also be used on the corners and joints in order to prevent water damage to the weatherboard cladding.
These instructions are often overlooked by unqualified fitters, and when this cladding is not fitted by a Cedral installer, moisture often ends up trapped behind the weatherboards. This moisture is then absorbed by the cladding and eventually leads to efflorescence, staining and peeling paint due to damp conditions.
The only way to fix Cedral weatherboard cladding to which this has occurred is to take it all down and start again, this time with an experienced Cedral installer like ourselves.
