For most of us there just aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done. So the last thing you want to be doing during the weekend is carrying out maintenance on the exterior of your home.

With Palliside exterior cladding from Icon, you won't have to. A low-maintenance alternative to traditional timber weatherboards, Palliside pre-finished weatherboards are suitable for new homes, renovation projects and additions.

Made from uPVC with a solid cellular core and a UV-resistant top coat, Palliside weatherboards combine the visual appeal of a woodgrain finish with durability, versatility and ease of care.

Palliside exterior cladding has been created with the harsh Australian climate in mind, says Jane Dixon from Icon Plastics, the product's Australian manufacturer.

"Resistant to salt spray and UV rays, Palliside won't rot, rust, warp, blister or peel, and never requires painting. It is also impact and scratch resistant," she says. "Keeping your Palliside cladding looking its best is as simple as a quick clean with a sponge and warm, soapy water."

To reassure homeowners of Palliside's durability, the product is backed by a 25-year warranty.

Palliside is available in a rusticated profile, with a full range of accessories to ensure a neat finish, and comes in a number of different colours.

"The boards are relatively light, making them easy to install by any qualified builder or competent home handyman," says Dixon.

An added benefit of Palliside boards is that they provide both thermal and acoustic insulation, which results in reduced energy costs.
