The unique Designer Series pre-finished walling system from lightweight building material company, Cemintel™ is increasingly being selected by emerging residential design and build companies as a creative, low maintenance facade solution.

Award-winning residential builders Planet Homes and Stylemaster Homes have chosen to partner with CSR Cemintel, using Cemintel’s unique Designer Series pre-finished walling system for their projects in internal and external applications.

Planet Homes has been building homes in Queensland for four years, each home designed to balance the owner’s ideas with the nature of the site.

Recipient of the ‘2014 HIA Display Home of the year over $500K’ and ‘HIA Overall Regional Display Home’ awards, Planet Homes designs for the climate and has chosen Cemintel for its ability to offer a point of difference in the market while meeting client expectations.

Planet Homes Founder and Managing Director, Jason Bowker explains that each location is taken on its own merits resulting in unique home designs.

Planet Homes discovered Cemintel’s Designer Series while exploring options for an innovative product that was low maintenance and cost-effective. The lifecycle of the product was a key consideration, taking into account factors such as weather protection and performance.

According to Mr Bowker, Cemintel was the obvious choice for their requirements. Woodgrain Teak from the Designer Series has a natural timber look, adding depth, warmth and texture to Planet Homes’ buildings. The cavity clip system protects the panels against moisture ingress, allows the walls to breathe and adds a further layer of insulation due to the increased air cavity.

A pre-finished product, the Designer Series features a self-cleaning coating system offering Planet Homes clients substantial benefits in terms of high performance, low maintenance, and excellent appearance.

Stylemaster Homes in Queensland is another builder that has discovered the benefits of Cemintel’s Designer Series. Stylemaster has received numerous accolades for excellence in customer service, innovation, design and workmanship including ‘HIA Queensland Professional Medium Builder 2014’ and winner of ‘Display Home’ for both Master Builders Queensland and Sunshine Coast.

Stylemaster offers a large range of single and double storey home designs that are highly adaptable and suitable for various needs.

According to Stylemaster Homes Managing Director Jeff Piconi, their latest range of homes has been designed in collaboration with some of Queensland’s leading architects and designers to create a truly innovative range with modern facades, ensuring a striking street appeal and maximum resale value for the owner.

Stylemaster selected Designer Series Slimline Slate to introduce a textural material that would complement a charcoal colour concept and contemporary facade design. Cemintel’s walling system highlights the home’s architectural features beautifully, offering a softer appearance than stone cladding and a subtle variation of charcoal tones in the sunlight.

Mr Piconi observes that Designer Series harmonises modern structural cladding with a sophisticated organic sensibility, providing texture and interest when used alongside painted render, while effectively complementing other materials such as timber, metal and tile.

Stylemaster will continue to incorporate products from Cemintel’s Designer Series into their homes to ensure they stand out from the crowd.

Cemintel’s Designer Series comes in a range of textures, colours and designs suitable for any internal or external application.
