LOCAL CARPENTERS YOU CAN TRUST
Cladding is what keeps your home secure from the elements. What surrounds your house is what defines how it looks and how it functions. Choosing the right material is an important choice in any home. Talk to Trademark Construction to help make the right call.
Fibre-cement is a commonly used material for cladding homes. It offers a host of benefits: Termite resistant, weather-proof, long-lasting, and thermally insulating. There are many options for different fibre-cement manufacturers, some of which are outlined here:
James Hardie is the company started by James Hardie, the inventor of Fibre-Cement in the 1980s, as a way of creating an asbestos free material. As the original manufacturer of fibre-cement, they are a proven company with a strong track record. The classic fibre-cement look is a single surface covered in fibre-cement, providing a unified look.
Stria cladding is a design of fibre-cement, defined by strong horizontal lines that suit a contemporary look, and is customisable by choosing different width of the panels.
Axon cladding is aimed at recreating painted vertical-joint timber, axon is characterised by vertical lines between boards.
Matrix cladding gives an industrial aesthetic with large rectangular panels, creating a large brick pattern. Includes a cavity construction design that improves insulation.
Linea cladding copies the classic weatherboard look, with narrower horizontal lines. It is also thicker than most fibre-cement products, meaning more durability and better insulation.
Hardieplank is the classic cladding solution. With a wood-grain design, wide weatherboards, they are a staple for modern homes. They are also quite cost effective, and provide the same durability and low maintenance as other fibre-cement solutions.
For a more natural look and feel, timber cladding can be the solution for you. Hardwood is a natural insulator, can be sustainably grown, and with proper care can last for decades. It also looks stunning, and nothing can compare with real wood grain. Wood is also heavily customisable to fit into any cladding design you want for your home.
For any cladding solution, it can be painted to be any colour that matches the design you want. Painting fibre-cement, rendered walls or timber cladding can provide a different look or texture to dial in the look you want for your home.
No matter what cladding solution you want, Trademark Construction can make it become reality. We have experience in a wide range of materials, and can offer advice for any considerations you might have. Call us today for a free consultation.

We highly recommend Trademark Construction Illawarra after they built a pergola for us. From the initial competitive quote through to completion of the project, the team was professional and efficient – they happily answered our many questions and provided good design advice. Tim along with his employees are hard workers, produce quality work, maintain a clean work site and are genuinely nice guys to have around! We love our new pergola which has already been put to great use for gatherings of family and friends. We would not hesitate to use their services again.
