50’s timber/ concrete tile cottage with major pealing of paint which would have to be burnt off primed and 2 coats of paint applied probably at a cost of $10K or more ! Repeated every 7 years!
The concrete tiles have been restored using the same procedures as previously outlined on the Fairfield and Hornsby renovations. Note, concrete tiles do not gain maximum strength till they are fully cured and this can take up to 50 years and they will last 100 years once restored! Again colorbond gutter, facia and downpipes( river gum ) fitted .Primrose cladding windows, screens and locks to match the Palliside weatherboard Cladding which has been fitted over the existing weatherboards. This provides an additional layer and hence trapping more air and assisting the insulating cellular core of the Palliside external cladding, an R rating of approximately 2.5 is the norm when Palliside is installed over fibro or weatherboard.
