Weatherboard cladding is a series of panels hung via batons to external walls, the panels or planks used can be timber, but Apple’s New England Weatherboard Cladding System uses boards that are made of a strong and highly durable fibre cement composite, often referred to as Eternit. These boards have a traditional cedar wood effect and are available in several factory applied colours.
Our weatherboard cladding system incorporates insulation that is specially developed to suit and enhance our weatherboard cladding installations. The insulation that we use is fire retardant and fully waterproof, providing a draft-free weather-sealed solution that will improve the energy efficiency of your home.
The majority of our customers choose to install weatherboard cladding because of the transformation that can be achieved. As our solution is very long lasting it adds value to a property that can be reflected in the resale price in the short and long term.

The New England coloured weatherboard system is made from a highly durable and long lasting fibre concrete composite that is not susceptible to pests or rotting and will not warp.
The weatherboard cladding system is installed to the ventilated rainscreen principle allowing air to flow from the base of the boards and through a minimum of 10mm gap left at the top of the weatherboard system. This produces airflow behind the weatherboards preventing any build-up of moisture.
The cladding has a traditional cedar wood effect for an authentic look. Boards are expertly cut to the required dimensions and the cladding edges, window and door recesses are neatly profiled with aluminium trim for a stylish finish.

The wall is prepared with fixed batons, typically 600mm apart to support the cladding. The exterior walls to be covered by the weatherboards are lined with fire retardant, waterproof insulation, providing additional energy efficiency.
"Wonderful quality and finish. Top value worth paying the extra cost. Shame about the timekeeping of the cladders, but any problems with build were quickly put right."Barry Foot
"Quality products installed by professional and polite fitters."Mr. Landucci
"Apple were very professional & trustworthy. The Weatherboard Cladding Installers were nice chaps, they worked hard & did a good job. They offered a few payment options, they belong to an ombudsman service, but don't think you'll need it and they left no mess when they were finished. Recommended"Mr & Mrs ADG1
