This customer had an area of timber cladding on the west facing side of his property which needed regular maintenance. The trouble was the cladding was above a conservatory so wasn’t easy to get at. The solution was to replace the timber cladding with something that didn’t need painting – so off it all came to be replaced with new treated timber framing covered with a product called Cedral Weatherboarding. this is a fibre cement product with a coloured wood-grain finish that shouldn’t need any maintenance for 10 to 15 years.
PS. I also painted all the rendering whilst I was there.
