As we explore the options for remodeling and renovations
we follow along the progress of our project home.
In selecting a cladding option for the repair we had to first consider:
The modern design of the house - built on the side of a hill and
escalating down three levels - each level being two stories high.
This makes the house more dificult to maintain, so a major consideration
is the permanence of the finish.
Having been extremely let down by the current cladding I was not
ever likely to go near a fiber cement - plaster combination again.
The modern look of the house dictates a modern looking cladding.
The first step was to identify all the cladding
suppliers in New Zealand.
From this I have identified the following for further investigation:
- a very popular choice with many leaky home owners
- have the overclad system that can reduce the cost of repair
- I like the almost commercial sleekness of this product, but
the cost for this project may be prohibitive. If I had no budget
constraints this would be the fore-runner.
At the moment - my leading contender is to use Palliside with the
OverClad system provided by PBS. I also like the competent, complete
service that PBS provide in terms of an in-house design team, project
management skills and full complement of sub-contractors.
