Did you know that rendered masonry has risen from only 3% in 1995 to over 32% of the external cladding market by 2005? Research also shows that this look tends to appeal to consumers who like a minimalist, understated and smart look for their homes.
Of course, painted render isn’t the only look that appeals to people who like an understated look. Scyon™ Stria™cladding takes the look of decorative render and evolves it into a contemporary classic.
It’s a product that takes the hassle out of pleasing consumers. Instead of laying bricks, rendering, scoring and painting (with all the associated mess and scheduling of different trades), Stria cladding involves just two trades: carpentry and painting.
In a recent study prepared for James Hardie on the costs of various construction systems used by large volume builders, building with Stria cladding instead of render on the double storey home studied could shave costs by about 30%. Now that’s a smarter way to build. Find out more about smarter ways to build in The Smarter Construction Book.
