Company: James Hardie
The owners of this two-storey, five bedroom lifestyle property in Pinehill, a suburb of rapidly growing Albany on the North Shore of Auckland, wanted to lift the value of their home through a reclad. Built in the early 2000s, the property was in need of a makeover and updated look.
Using a range of James Hardie claddings, including Stria Cladding, Linea Weatherboard, and Axon Panel, the owners have achieved a long-term robust solution that is modern and well-suited to the home’s seaside location. The Axon Panel is painted in brown, contrasting beautifully with the duck egg Linea Weatherboard and crispy butter white Stria Cladding, to create a cape-cod style feature wall.
Owner, Jenny Lim, says the selection of cladding products was not based on aesthetics alone. It was a practical choice, too. “The products are easy to work with and practically maintenance-free, providing peace of mind performance.”
James Hardie claddings are all manufactured from fibre cement and are resistant to fire, damage from moisture, and when installed as directed, resistant to rotting and warping – ideal for New Zealand’s harsh weather conditions.
“My husband and I are aware of the benefits of James Hardie cladding through our building company, Namu Construction. We use James Hardie products on all our home recladding projects, so it was a natural choice for our own home, too.”
The reclad took two months to complete and Lim says it has added approximately $500K to the value of the property.
