The exterior of your house is a significant part of your home because it gives neighbours and guests a first impression.

 A worn, unmaintained exterior can bring the whole curb appeal of your home down. Deciding what is best for you and your family is a hard decision. People will tell you leave your old house and buy something new. Others will tell you to knock it down and build a new one but where will you live while it is being built?

 The cost of renting and removalists are a huge expense. Staying and upgrading your existing home is an increasing popular option and easier on the bank account, rather than moving house so you can stay in the area that you know and love, an important consideration if you have kids in school.

 No building approvals are needed as it’s not changing the shape of your home. No packing or removalist cost.

If you love your suburb but unhappy with the look of your home you have a few cost effective options open for an exterior face lift, the most noticeable being recladding your home.  In addition to your external home looking good it needs to be durable and low maintenance or your home will be looking worn and unmaintained again in a few years.

Vinyl Cladding is a cost effective, durable and low maintenance option. No painting is ever required as the colour is all the way through the board not just the surface colour, so cost of repainting your timber every 5 years and all the labour involved is eliminated. Think of all the time and expense you will save yourself and the peace of mind.

Duratuff Select Vinyl Cladding is designed to be fade resistance and will not rot, warp, crack or peel.  Durable is an important benefit of Vinyl Cladding. Duratuff Select Vinyl Cladding is engineered to the toughest conditions and built to withstand driving rain, wild winds and extreme heat. With a unique 180 wind lock system, all cladding panels are securely engaged while still allowing expansion and contraction, which is critical to withstand weather extremes.

Duratuff Select Vinyl Cladding comes with foam insulation built onto the individual weatherboard. The insulation will protect your family from the extreme heats of summer and help retain heat in winter. Duratuff Select Vinyl cladding aims to improve your homes energy efficiency and improves your comfort. It also performs very well to the Australian fire standards.

Duratuff Select Vinyl Cladding comes in a large variety of colours.
