The average cost of cladding a house in Sydney depends on the size, type of material used, if scaffolding is required under OH&S and also the other renovations you need to do to renew the house. Most Sydney home owners also restore the old tile roof or change the existing iron roof to colorbond, renew the gutter, clad the facias and barge boards. Clad the eaves as well as the walls and renew the old windows.

Peter & Lesley Home Improvements only use Australian made Colorbond gutters facia and flashings because they have been engineered to handle the harsh climate youlive in and they have a 25 year guarantee.
Peter & Lesley Home Improvements use a slotted gutter to prevent any overflow as a result of a major storm not flowing back into you eaves and rotting the framing timbers of your home, The size and profile of the gutter and downpipes installed are dependent on the volume of water the gutters/ downpipes need to accommodate, according to the roof area they are servicing.
The old timber facia (after any dry rot is removed ) is covered with a strong ribbed Colorbond facia cover in any Colorbond colour you wish.
Some areas of your home, especially where you have a skillion roof or barges on gables are covered in designed and made to measure Colorbond flashings. Refer to the photos.
