Australian Hardwood Exterior Cladding

Australian Hardwood Exterior Cladding is renowned for its robustness, natural beauty, and suitability for various climates. Sourced from native Australian trees like Jarrah, Spotted Gum, Blackbutt, and Ironbark, these hardwoods are prized for their durability and resistance to weathering.

H3 treated timber cladding to update the look of your home. Available in a range of colours, you are only limited by your imagination.

IronAsh H3 Cladding – IronAsh is a strong, durable cladding that has H3 treatment for a longer-lasting and better timber to protect your home.

Spotted Gum Cladding – The most sought-after cladding on the market, Spotted Gum is both beautiful and durable. Use as a feature to lift a home or space, or on an entire build. Either way, you’ll be the envy of your neighbours.

Ironbark Cladding – With rich browns and reds, Ironbark is great for cooler climates where warmth is needed. Finishing with oil or traditional varnishes will lift up the tones and keep the finish fresh for longer. Perfect for features around the home, south-facing walls, and where a darker colour is desired.

Silvertop Ash Cladding With easy installation and a beautiful appearance, Silvertop Ash is a stunning timber that will only get better with age. If you like the classic weatherboard with the silvery colour then this cladding is for you.

Cement Sheet Products

Cement sheet products refer to building materials made primarily from cement, often combined with other materials like cellulose fibres, silica, and additives to enhance specific properties. These products are widely used in construction for their durability, fire resistance, and versatility. Here are some common types of cement sheet products:

  1. Fibre Cement Sheets: Fibre cement sheets are composed of cement reinforced with cellulose fibres, typically sourced from wood pulp. This combination results in a strong yet lightweight material that is resistant to rot, fire, moisture, and pests.
  2. Cement Board: Cement boards are rigid panels made from a mixture of cement and reinforcing fibres such as fibreglass or cellulose
  3. Fibre Cement Siding: Fibre cement siding is a type of cladding material used on the exterior of buildings. It mimics the appearance of wood or masonry siding but offers better durability and resistance to weather conditions.
  4. Cement Roofing Sheets: Cement roofing sheets are durable and weather-resistant roofing materials used in residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. They are known for their ability to withstand harsh weather conditions, including wind, rain, and sunlight.
  5. Underlayment Board: Cement underlayment boards are used as a substrate for flooring materials such as tiles, vinyl, and hardwood. They provide a stable and smooth surface that helps to prevent cracking and movement of the finished floor covering.

Internal and External Doors

Internal and external doors serve distinct purposes in building design, each tailored to specific functional and aesthetic requirements.

Internal Doors: Internal doors are primarily used within the interior of buildings to delineate spaces, provide privacy, and enhance sound insulation between rooms. They come in various styles, materials, and designs to complement the overall interior decor. Common materials for internal doors include wood (such as oak, pine, or mahogany), composite materials, and sometimes glass panels for a more open feel or to allow light transmission between rooms.

External Doors: External doors, also known as entry doors or exterior doors, are designed to provide security, weather protection, and aesthetic appeal for the main entry points of buildings. They are constructed to withstand outdoor elements such as rain, wind, and temperature fluctuations. External doors are often thicker and more robust than internal ones, commonly made from solid wood (such as oak or mahogany), fibreglass, steel, or aluminium. These materials offer durability, security features (such as reinforced cores and sturdy locks), and insulation properties to maintain energy efficiency within the building. External doors may feature decorative elements, glass panels for natural light, and weatherstripping to prevent drafts and water ingress.

Plasterboard, often referred to as drywall or gypsum board, is a widely used building material in interior construction. It consists of a core of gypsum sandwiched between two layers of paper or fibreglass. This composition gives plasterboard its characteristic properties of being lightweight, fire-resistant, sound-insulating, and easy to work with.


  1. Composition: The core of plasterboard is made from gypsum, a naturally occurring mineral. Gypsum is mixed with additives to enhance its properties, such as improving fire resistance or reducing water absorption.
  2. Types: Plasterboard comes in various types and thicknesses, each designed for specific applications.
  3. Installation: Plasterboard is installed on interior walls and ceilings using screws or nails, typically attached to wooden or metal framing.


  1. Metal Studs and Tracks: Metal studs and tracks are used to create the framework onto which the plasterboard is attached. They provide structural support and stability, especially in partition walls and suspended ceilings.
  2. Jointing Compound and Tape: The Jointing compound is used to fill and smooth joints between plasterboard sheets, creating a seamless surface.
  3. Corner Beads: Corner beads are metal or plastic profiles used to reinforce and protect the external corners of plasterboard walls. They ensure sharp, clean corners that are resistant to damage and wear.
