Search Pinterest for Australian Hampton Style and see the beauty and simplicity that makes this architectural style so attractive to the modern Australian family.

In almost every post you will see the gentleness of traditional timber look shiplap and chamfered weatherboards and the nostalgic white window architraves of a bygone era. Both have been so absent from the new construction market of the last 50 years with its’ staunch “brick & tile mentality.”

The inspiration for this styling has undoubtedly come from the manicured suburbs of North American cities where the greatest percentage of home exteriors are constructed using uPVC products such as Royal Select Vinyl Weatherboards and Triple Glazed Windows.

The other visible component of “Hampton Style” is the use of Grey tones in the colour scheme. Blue Grays, Green Greys, Brown Greys, Soft Greys, Bold Greys, just about every Grey imaginable to a man with bold white vertical and horizontal trimmings.

Austech External Building Products are the National Distributors of Royal Building Products, North Americas leading manufacturers of uPVC Weatherboards, in Australia. Our colour range of Vinyl Weatherboards is ever expanding to meet the discerning buyer's demands. We currently stock 14 colours and can “special order” many more.

Harvard Slate is our newest Stock Colour. Best described as a rich, bold and versatile grey that has topped the US market in sales over the past few years. Chances are if you have searched Pinterest for “Hampton Style” you’ve seen many US homes clad in Harvard Slate – You may have Pinned a few yourself.

Harvard Slate is available in Duratuff Select (Chamfered), Duratech (Shiplap) and Vertical (Soffit) profiled Vinyl Weatherboards. Manufactured to Australian Standard 4256.4, the Austech cladding product range is a virtually maintenance free. With an unsurpassed product life cycle, our vinyl weatherboards are significantly tested against all weather conditions and carry a Lifetime* Manufacturers Warranty.

Austechs Insulated uPVC weatherboard range eliminates the need for painting which is a worthwhile consideration in any Cost Benefit Analysis of building materials but especially so for high areas such as 2nd Storeys or Gables.

Ideally suited for new builds when installing following Australian Standard 1562.3, Austech Insulated Vinyl Weatherboards are exceptionally versatile as a retrofit product. Direct fixing over existing Fibre cement sheeting or existing timber weatherboards is quick, simple and incredibly effective changing the style and colour of a home in a matter of days.

The narrow framing of Existing Aluminium windows will take on a fresh “Hampton Style” with the installation of our new Designer Window Trims. These specially developed Architraves are installed before the weatherboards which insert behind the face of 60mm cavity of the trim, achieving a neat and bold, pure white, contrasting window frame that requires no painting or maintenance and lasts for years.  Jump on our website to learn more
