Fibre Cement Cladding

Why Palliside Cladding is a better choice for your home than traditional Fibre Cement Cladding

There are many articles on the internet that say different things about which wall cladding solutions work best for Australian homes. This is a very complex debate to have, considering the kinds of environmental stresses that the average exterior wall is subjected to on a daily basis.

This isn’t even factoring in the drastic shift that such materials need to endure every time the seasons change. But, the abundance of sources can lead to confusion regarding whom homeowners should trust when making such an important decision.

Tried and Tested

Fortunately, finding an impartial and unbiased reason to support a decision is possible even with a subject that many people think depends heavily on a case-by-case basis. Most people are unaware of this, but every material used in the construction of a house, such as Palliside and fibre cement cladding, goes through several different quality control tests by various government agencies and private specialists.

These tests determine how well a material will perform under real life situations, as well as the extreme conditions of natural calamities. Each material is then given a rating that can give homeowners a better idea of what they’ll need for their houses.

Protection From Excessive Warmth and Sun

Palliside wall cladding systems went through many of these tests, and handily passed with flying colours in many important areas. One of these areas is insulation and protection against environmental threats – mainly excessive warmth and noise. This is significant, because many other wall-cladding solutions, such as fibre cement cladding, don’t provide the same protection.

The secret to the effectiveness of Palliside lies in its cellular foam core. When engineers couple that with its 7mm thickness and unique UV top coat, it provides the best protection against Australia’s extreme climate, as well as the powerful UV rays that can pose a significant threat to your family.

Better Than Pesticide

The advantages of Palliside don’t end there though, because this wall cladding system is just as effective at protecting a house from visible threats as it is with invisible ones. The threat of attracting vermin and pests is a constant reality in several parts of the country, and sometimes there will be small critters who’ll try to take up residence in the walls of a house.

Fortunately, the engineers that designed Palliside wall cladding already thought of this problem when they first came up with the system, and have an ingenious solution for it. Each board of Palliside cladding comes with an anti-capillary channel that locks each piece together. These locks create an air-tight seal that not only makes Palliside easy to install, but can also keep out vermin, moisture, wind, and anything that cause gradual structural damage to the walls.

Palliside also comes with an inbuilt pesticide and anti-fungicide in its formula. These threats can also include mildew, which can grow on walls that don’t get much exposure to sunlight and in the constant presence of water. This is where the design of Palliside truly shines over its peers, as other wall cladding system have little chance in countering mildew and mould other than the application of additional coats, or professional treatment services.

Don’t put your own home through the hassle of getting multiple treatments; get the one solution that can take care of all the problems on the first try.
