The architect on this standout home chose Cedral Click as a low-maintenance and contemporary alternative to more traditional weatherboarding materials.

Are you looking to create a property that truly reflects your personality?
Cedral fibre cement cladding from Marley Eternit enables self-builders and renovators to create a home completely unique to themselves.

Reflecting the visual appeal of timber and available in a wide range of factory applied colours and finishes, the durable Cedral Lap and Cedral Click ranges offer a truly unique touch to any self-build or renovation project. While allowing a homeowner’s personal style to shine, the material’s durability and low-maintenance properties mean they are ideal for a property that is designed to last. Requiring just two installers*, the lightweight boards are easy to install and can be applied alongside a range of other materials including brick and timber, offering self-builders the opportunity to improve the thermal efficiency of their home by installing insulation between the boards.

Cedral Lap and Cedral Click are an attractive alternative to more traditional weatherboard materials, with their resistance to rot and external elements including wind, rain and sunlight making them a popular choice for both self-build and renovation projects.

Cedral Click is the UK’s first and only flush fitting, fibre cement, tongue and groove weatherboard product. It creates a contemporary flat finish to the exterior of a property, showcasing a modern, linear aesthetic. The flush fitting boards can be installed in a range of interesting and individual formations, creating a visually exciting exterior. Offering a more traditional appeal, Cedral Lap is installed in a clapboard effect with the fibre cement boards overlapping to reflect a more classic exterior style.

In Practice

Marley Eternit has recently helped construct a standout home in Worcester, which sits within the grounds of an existing property, through the use of its Cedral weatherboard range. The new property of approximately 257m2 has been built within the grounds of a home in Hanley Castle. The two-storey five bedroom house benefits from the best of both worlds with modern interiors and exteriors to give a classic yet contemporary look.

Cedral Click was specified by David Bull Architects to produce an exterior design that was not only aesthetically pleasing, but ensured that the owners had a property that required minimum maintenance. David Bull, principal at David Bull Architects, said: “The landowner has been keen to build on the plot for a number of years, and the landowner’s daughter took the build project on once planning permission had been secured. “One key desire the client had when we were appointed for the project was to ensure the property had minimal upkeep, and to source products that would support this. Cedral Click was the perfect solution due to its low maintenance properties.”

Over 120m2 of Cedral Click was used in grey and fitted in a horizontal style to create an aesthetically stylish design that was not only cohesive and complementary to the main house, but was also in keeping with the surrounding locality. Cedral Click was used on the first floor of the property, with the ground floor maintaining a traditional brick exterior. Cedral Click is an external fibre cement weatherboard cladding material that offers installers the flexibility to implement a unique design with a life expectancy of at least 50 years.

David added: “The weatherboard played a key role in the property’s aesthetic as the owner wanted to ensure the exterior had a unified appearance. To help achieve this, other materials such as the rafter ends were colour matched to the grey of Cedral Click. The result is a smart and elegant finish.“We’ve had a great working relationship with Marley Eternit, and the team has even come out to site to train our contractors on how to fit the product, which is invaluable for projects now and in the future. I’m delighted with the finished result, and I know the homeowner is too.”
