Duratuff Select Vinyl Cladding is the ultimate solution for your next project. The eye-catching exterior cladding is engineered to withstand the toughest conditions as it comes with a 50 year guarantee and has been designed for easy installation by DIY enthusiasts and builders. Austech Building Products can provide you with a wide range of colours and quality accessories to make installation simpler or alternatively we can recommend a qualified installer in your area that can complete your cladding project.

Austech now has a comprehensive installation guide available for you to download. The guide covers everything you need to successfully install vinyl cladding, including:

· Measuring for materials.

· Surface preparation.

· Installing siding, fascia and Soffit.

· Cladding around windows and doors.

· Cladding gable ends.

· Installing trim at the roof line.

· Cladding maintenance and cleaning.

Vinyl weatherboards can be used to clad a whole house, but they are also ideal for home alterations like second story additions, extensions, garages and repairs to damaged cladding. Since vinyl cladding comes in a wide range of UV-protected colours, there is no need to go back and paint, making it ideal for hard to reach areas and maintenance free design.

Vinyl cladding is light weight so two people can comfortably install the product. Vinyl Cladding's lightweight design also contributes to faster build time and less need for structural support. Duratuffs added lightweight foam backing also adds rigidity, making it easier to install while improving your homes energy efficiency.

Austech can supply vinyl boards up to 8m long to avoid excessive joins and produce a seamless look to your vinyl siding project. The installation guide also provides useful tips on joining boards to easily get a professional finish.

Austech can supply Vinyl Cladding to all major Australian metropolitan areas and most regional areas. To see if DIY vinyl cladding is right for you, visit the Austech website and download the installation guide.
