Cladding materials for houses Sydney

Cladding materials for houses are many and varied  and many have serious limitations in the Sydney area. Aluminium cladding will dent, fade and powder. Vinyl cladding warps on the walls of houses because it is only 0.5-1mm thick, fades, powders, becomes brittle and cracks and because it is so thin peels off the walls of your home in strong winds. Blue board and polystyrene cladding have a major problem in that they crack on the Sydney clay basin with the expansion and contraction as the clay soil dry and then becomes wet,  you end up with unsightly cracks, dry rot, damp wall syndrome and they have to be painted every 7 years.

Palliside UPVC weatherboard cladding has been engineered and manufactured in Australia for the last 35 years.It is a strong cyclone rated 7 mm thick weatherboard cladding with a cellular inner core that insulates the home , never needs painting, it will not fade and is also used in new construction. It has been proven in Australia’s harsh conditions.

With Palliside Cladding, you can have the look and charm of weatherboards without the worry and cost of maintenance, or concerns about corrosion, peeling or vermin attack. It provides UV stability and strength and with it’s cellular foam construction it is a 7mm thick weatherboard with solid colour throughout, designed and engineered for Australia’s extreme climate. It will not support combustion and can be used in bush fire zoned regions of Australia (Palliside is being used in the reconstruction of homes in the bush fired ravaged areas of Victoria). It can be used in tropical cyclone region C or terrain category 3 as defined in the wind loading code AS1170.2. Palliside has a UV protection layer designed uniquely for Australia. The anti-capillary channel when the boards are locked together prevents vermin, moisture and wind getting behind the walls. It is simply cleaned with soapy water.
