Replacing existing exterior wood cladding in this project was important as the cost of maintenance became too high; the house is very exposed to the elements and the wood cladding needed to be re-painted frequently. Several cladding options were considered: Vinyl cladding, uPVC cladding and fibre cement cladding. The owners decided to replace the wooden cladding with HardieLinea® fibre cement cladding based on aesthetics and its characteristics: It is water resistant and far less susceptible to the elements than any alternative. The colour fade due to UV is a fraction of that of either wood or uPVC cladding.

I love the New England look and knew instantly that the HardieLinea was what we wanted
