Across Australia, weatherboard has endured for decades as a popular cladding material thanks to its combination of durability and design flexibility. Over time, the material has greatly benefited from new technologies, which have significantly improved its ability to resist rot, UV exposure, and termite infestation. However, the sheer number and variety of weatherboard options on the market means that finding the most appropriate product for a project is often a complex task.

In their new whitepaper, A specifier’s guide to selecting weatherboard, timber specialists Wright Forest simplify the weatherboard specification process and outline the key features that must be taken into consideration when selecting weatherboards.

The whitepaper begins by exploring the unique characteristics of weatherboard and the range of benefits that it offers, specifically: design flexibility, high durability, a long product lifespan, and compliance with the relevant construction standards. It then distinguishes between the different types of weatherboard profiles on the market and provides critical information that must be considered when selecting and installing the material.

As one of the most established Australian suppliers of Nordic timber, Wright Forest is a foremost industry source of information about high quality weatherboard cladding products. Wright Forest’s extensive weatherboard catalogue contains something to suit every project and aesthetic and is bolstered by a selection of preservation and factory applied coatings that enhance material performance.
