EVERYONE loves the look of a freshly painted weatherboard home.
Whether it’s a traditional or modern look you’re after you can achieve it with Formplex, whose maintenance-free weatherboards are the perfect solution.
Whether you’re building from scratch, refurbishing a tired non- brick house, adding an extension, or just keen to enhance the street appeal of your home, Formplex offers Australian-made weatherboards built to withstand our harsh climate.
Formplex has been providing Australian homes with quality uPVC weatherboards since 1981, helping homeowners keep the iconic look of traditional timber weatherboards without the ongoing maintenance and costs involved in preserving a timber home.
Renowned for its insulation properties and durability, uPVC is the perfect lightweight external cladding material and is becoming increasingly popular in construction projects around the world.
As well as being stylish and affordable, Formplex’s range of uPVC weatherboards will also help insulate your home, saving you money in energy costs over time.
The primary role of cladding is to prevent the infiltration of weather elements and the egress of water vapour while providing a durable, aesthetically pleasing appearance.
It can also provide sound and thermal insulation, fire resistance, and the capacity for easy cleaning in dusty environments.
The colour of external cladding influences its capacity to absorb or reflect heat.
In most climates, it is preferable to use lighter colours or reflective finishes.
Formplex weatherboards come in a wide range of colours, all of which maintain their UV stability throughout their life expectancy.
Being a lightweight building board, Formplex boards are perfect for upper storey construction where the owner/builder is seeking a lightweight option for their project that is not only maintenance-free but will also meet their building budgets.
Formplex has a building department dedicated to working with home builders and can quote directly from your plans.
