Weatherboard home planned to perfection

Set on a majestic site in Arrowtown, New Zealand, this new Envira weatherboard home blends with the historic location while still being unique and modern.

The intention to blend was a must for the homeowners when building this home - and for this reason they chose to paint their Envira weatherboards Resene Lumbersider Triple Tea colour.


This great colour choice not only compliments the surroundings but is also ideal for use on weatherboards because it is mid-toned. As with any painted surface, dark paint tones can generate excessive heat - the lighter the colour, the kinder it is to the material below.

With Envira weatherboards painting is easy, as the whole system - including matching scribers, window sills and facing boards - are all factory-coated with a revolutionary primer that has high-level weather and UV resistance. 

This primer layer means that Niagara products come ready for direct top coating - saving on time and costs.

The homeowners commented, “We used Niagara’s finger jointed bevel back weatherboards as we felt they complemented the historic character of our town. We liked the fact that we were using a renewable resource, which also has a greater degree of stability in an earthquake.”

Timber weatherboards are a TC3-approved cladding. Weighing almost one-third the weight of most man-made fibre cement alternatives, yet still strong and flexible, they are ideal for a top storey.
