Marley Eternit Weatherboard
Modern designs and the latest technology have moved weatherboard cladding to an art form.
Weatherboard is used on houses, offices and contemporary and historic buildings for many and various reasons. Weatherboard offers an attractive feature to the facade of any home. Weatherboard cladding protects the building from the elements and is particularly effective in damp climates or for properties close to the sea where high salt-content spray can prove particularly destructive.
Cedral Weatherboard from Marley Eternit
Chelmsford Roofline Ltd use Cedral Weatherboard instead of traditional timber weatherboard. Cedral Weatherboard is made of fibre cement and is the perfect alternative to timber and PVCu weatherboard.
Modern fibre cement weatherboard looks exactly the same as timber cladding with many additional features. Cedral Weatherboard is fire resistant and low maintenance. It does not warp, shrink or rot, and it is safe from damp and insect infestation.

Fibre cement is popular with architects as it is contemporary material that can be used to create stunning roofs and facades. Fibre cement is made from a combination of wood cellulose, synthetic fibres, water and cement making it one of the most ecological products on the market. It has a clean, low energy production process with low environmental impact. Fibre cement is fully recyclable and contributes to buildings achieving the Code for Sustainable Homes and BREEAM ratings. It has an installed life expectancy in excess of 50 years.
