10mm Cedral Lap Fibre Cement Cladding Board - Unpainted - Wood Effect
10mm Cedral Lap- Unpainted is an attractive, fibre cement cladding board with the visual appeal of natural timber an alternative to all types of traditional cladding. Cedral Lap is fitted in traditional lapped style and is rot free. Cedral Lap boards are installed to the ventilated rainscreen principle - air can flow in at the base of the system, behind the cladding and then out, over the top of the weatherboard system. This air flow behind the weatherboard enables the system to remove moisture.
Usage: 1.75 boards per m2. It is advisable to add 5-10% wastage allowance and add extra boards for window reveals depending on reveal depth, when ordering. Other colours are subject to minimum order quantities and extended lead times.
Available in two finishes: timber and smooth textures. Smooth Cedral planks are available in full pallet quantity and extended lead time. Please check by phoning in.
