For builders and home owners alike, the benefits of choosing Envira timber weatherboards far outnumber fibre cement. At almost three times the weight of timber, fibre cement boards are more difficult to transport and manoeuvre into place and add a substantial extra amount of weight to a frame. This can cause issues, especially in TC3-zoned areas or for large or two-storey buildings. Timber performs well in these situations not only by weight but also its natural flexibility.
Builder Ron Edwards has converted to Niagara’s premium finger jointed weatherboards and finds them terrific. “We were a little reluctant to change, but since doing so we’ve had no problems. We will continue to build with the bevel back profile from the Envira Weatherboard System and perhaps even the rusticated style if the opportunity comes along,” Ron said.
We love the shadow lines and the homely feel of a traditional ‘kiwi home’ completely clad with timber weatherboards. Download our brochure and get inspired!
