We are East Anglia's first, and so far only, preferred and fully trained Hardieplank® contractors. Our experience means we can give the best advice based on our technical and practical expertise.

The Material

Hardieplank® is a concrete fibre and wood-pulp mix which combines strength with flexibility. It's insulation properties will help keep out the cold and its durability makes it virtually maintenance free. With 21 colours to choose from there is bound to be the perfect colour to enhance and add value to your home.

Uses

Hardieplank® is an advanced replacement for wood, tile, felt or pvc cladding. It can change the look of your home by being put straight on to your existing brick, block or rendered elevations. It can even be used to transform your holiday home as you can see in the 'Before and After' pictures below!

Correct Fitting

Preparation may involve carefully taking down old cladding materials and then battening-out or just straight battening on a plain wall. The battens must be fixed at the correct width and the 'joiner battens' covered with a pvc membrane. If there is a requirement for insulation, whether to conform to the latest Building Regulations, or just because you want a cosier home, then the appropriate depth of insulation is inserted between the battens and a breathable membrane is attached.

Since you need to both insulate and ventilate, before the first board goes on, the correct starter ventilator is put it place. The boards are then fixed at the correct depth. Each board is screwed, we do not use nail guns - it is essential that boards are screwed rather than nailed, because they are not under fixed where a nail is protruding, neither are the fixings too deeply embedded in the board leaving the boards subject to popping off the fixing at some future date.

The boards are fixed all the way up the wall and a small expansion gap is left to allow the air behind the boards to escape. A ventilator grill is used where appropriate to keep the lines straight and as a large insect deterrent.

Finally the boards are cleaned up, windows trimmed as necessary and the top screws which are not otherwise hidden are filled and painted with HardiePlank's own paint to perfectly match the board colour.
