But this won’t work as it will pull away half of the time as Norstone is a natural stone; it weighs 65kg per square metre.’

HardiePlank®: Ray of Sunshine for Walton-on-the-Naze

When London Green Developments wanted the latest trend in facade cladding for a new development of town houses in Essex, they didn’t look much further than HardiePlank® cladding to provide a durable and visually impactful finish. Being that ‘The Beach Houses’ were situated at a popular beachfront location, a selection of colourful cladding finishes were chosen to complement the seaside location and the unique style of the development. ‘HardiePlank cladding not only met the aesthetic criteria but as the houses are in close proximity to the sea, it will also provide excellent protection from the harsh elements.’

HardiePlank®: The Trenders Barn Development

When Barry Daly, company director of BUDA Building and Development, went to visit an old reclaim yard in Rawreth to purchase some oak for a development he was working on, all he found was a barren site. The development, Trenders Barn, consists of four timber frame luxury detached properties, each with a unique design.

HardiePlank, in midnight black was specified for the facades to stay in-keeping with local Essex design styles.

HardiePlank®: Unique Seaside Regeneration

The facade of Rollercoaster House is made up of render, a curtain wall system and HardiePlank® cladding. It is the first time that site manager David Tomlinson has worked with the product, who states that the coastal environment conditions were the main factor when deciding which type of cladding to use. ‘With timber, David says, ‘however good a product you are going to get, it wouldn’t have had the same lifespan as HardiePlank at the end of the day. PVC discolours, especially the darker colours, but I am expecting and hoping that HardiePlank will stand the test of time.’
