MATERIAL SPECIFICATION – Weatherboard Cement Fibre Cladding

Fibre cement cladding requires very little maintenance and can be easily repainted. Available in a selection of colours. In appearance it consists of overlapping horizontal boards, imitating wooden cladding.

This type cladding is manufactured by two companies. Marley Eternit and Jamies Hardie. See the links below. Both products are extremely similar but have different colours.

Cedral Lap is specially designed so that the planks are overlapped when installed creating a traditional, clapper-board aesthetic. Cedral Lap can be used as part of a building refurbishment or new build development. Ideal for residential properties as well as commercial, Cedral Lap is an ideal complement to other building materials, such as render and brick and looks equally as stunning when used to clad the complete building facade.

Cedral Lap is ideal as an over-clad solution for existing properties, or as part of a new build facade. Available in a wide selection of factory applied colours, which enables homeowners and specifiers to create striking, individual homes, which are low maintenance.
