Cedral Weatherboard helps create New England style development

Marley Eternit fibre cement Cedral Weatherboard has helped to create a New England style development at Valley Park in Rye, Kent.

Entire properties as well as a large number of feature walls on the development have been clad in Cedral Weatherboard.

Aroncorp, the client for this development, was initially drawn to Cedral Weatherboard because it provided a visually authentic, low maintenance method of creating the popular New England style of architecture.

Cedral Weatherboard has a textured surface that echoes the aesthetic characteristics of timber. However, being made from fibre cement means that it provides a long term low maintenance solution – avoiding the need for homeowners to continually having to maintain their property.

Each property on the development is clad in a subtly varied shade of Cedral Weatherboard, using a combination of White, Grey Green and Blue Grey, from a palette of 23 colours and four woodstain finishes.

The properties at Valley Park in Rye were constructed using a Kingspan Potton timber frame construction with factory fitted insulation. These were covered with a sheathing board and breathable sarking membrane.

The Cedral Weatherboard was then fixed to timber battens on an external blockwork outer skin to create a rear ventilated cavity. The walls achieve a U-value of 0.20 w/m²K.
