Vulcan Primed Cladding was chosen primarily due to its ability to perform with a dark colour in the harsh Auckland climate.
Vulcan Primed is thermally modified for stability and durability. Thermal modification increases the stability of pine — reducing shrinking and swelling by 50%.
The weatherboards were painted on site with Resene Mako CoolColour — with 15% LRV, this colour is much darker than allowed on other timber weatherboard products.
The cladding continues to perform excellently with virtually no movement or warping.
