Weatherboard homes have been a classic and have grown in popularity due to the many advantages that it has. There are many Sydney residents that simply like the classic look of this style of home and prefer using this technique.
Weatherboard homes began their popularity in the 1850s with the introduction of the steam saw miles in the cities meant that not only were that cost efficient but also easy to transport and simple to install. In the 1980’s timber was not favoured due to the constant repairs and maintenance because of the elements of the environment. For example, the paint would begin to peel, and mould would start to grow. There was a need to use different materials so fiber cement weatherboards became popular and were less susceptible to damage. The advantage made this material widespread in the building industry. Today, weatherboard homes is an iconic representation of Australia and is still a classic.
Timber and fiber boards also differ in appearance and texture. With new advancements that exist today, the gap between the two has minimised by having variations of fiber cemet which have the same profiles and texture of timber and patterns of woodgrain to give the appearance of timber.
Today, you still see many homes using this style and even has increased in popularity. With the benefits of cost effectiveness and high resistant to extreme weather, this has become a popular choice for many home owners.
