Forest Hill Reclad

Homes can be reclad for many reasons – aesthetics, to replace a tired exterior or even to combat a leaky home issue. For this home, it was to replace an unusual plastic vertical cladding, which was on its last legs and susceptible to leaking.

SO Renovate developed a design concept that involved recladding the home with traditional pine weatherboards and the construction of a more appealing front entrance.

Our client continued to live in the home throughout the build, even while the home was wrapped in plastic to protect it from the elements.

The final solution has added another 50 years onto its life, and transformed a dated 70’s exterior with the clean, classic lines of weatherboard.
