Pine weatherboards are a popular choice for Queenslanders, as they’re termite resistant and are durable against various weather conditions. Our LOSP pine weatherboards (Light organic solvent preservative) are fused with preservatives to ensure the timber lasts for decades. These preservatives contain special waxes and resins, which keeps the timber moist, strong and rot resistant.
Hardwood weatherboards are one of the strongest weatherboards available, as they’re made with reconstituted hardwood. They’re typically used to protect a home against the elements, whilst giving an attractive appearance. Comprised of long, rectangular timber planks, hardwood weatherboards suit numerous styles of homes, including Hamptons, traditional, modern, cabin and farmhouse.

Yes! Installing weatherboard is not a complicated task if you consider yourself DIY-handy. Weatherboard should be secured by driving a nail as close as possible to the edge of the board without penetrating the top (or head) of the chamferboard. Ideally you should observe a minimum recommended lap of 21mm.
While there are differences in the different types of weatherboard, as a general rule of thumb timber weatherboard cladding should be between 16mm and 25mm thick.
To prolong the life of your chamferboard, it is recommended to only use treated timbers or hardwood that is naturally resistant to rot and decay. It is also important to ensure your weatherboard is well maintained and ideally painted or sealed every 10-15 years as required to keep it looking its best. As timber expands and contracts with changes in humidity and temperature this can cause paint to chip and crack over time.
