Street Appeal 2

A dreamy and updated exterior house design makes for a beautiful look and great first impressions. Over time, weathering and lack of maintenance can cause the exterior of a house to deteriorate, bringing down the curb appeal of the home.

According to Cherie Barber, founder of Renovating for Profit, first impressions are crucial. That’s why her number one area to renovate first is the facade of your home.


So What are the Key Reasons to Refresh your Exterior Cladding?



  • Weatherboard replacement
  • Replace "Direct Fixed" cladding
  • Update existing cladding colour
  • Replace deteriorating cladding
  • Protect your investment


Of course, if you want to clad your home you need to speak to an expert.

All Smith & Sons Offices are licensed, experienced builders with the necessary technical knowledge and ability in this field.

Recladding can ensure house integrity for years to come, add value to a home and create street appeal.



There are many ways in which you can improve the look of your home; cladding is one of the easiest ways to dramatically change the appearance without needing to spend a fortune in the process.


Revamping your home's exterior – even on a tight budget – can improve its looks, saleability and value.


Replacing the old facade material with Fibre-cement weatherboarding, will not only freshen up the look but also, being a composite is:



  • Long-lasting
  • Won’t twist or warp over time
  • Is fire-resistant
  • Frost-proof
  • Comes pre-finished
  • Needs minimal maintenance, and
  • Won’t rust or rot.

An exterior facelift is one of the best options for improving the look of an old home.

One of the most cost-effective choices and also the most noticeable option involves recladding the home exterior with a material that’s not only low in maintenance but also durable so that the home looks good well into the future with minimal effort.

Recladding generally doesn’t require building approvals as the shape of the home is not being changed, and can be executed without the homeowner having to move out.




The team at Smith & Sons can help you design, plan and construct your project.


Whether you’re after a fresh new look, want to replace an old leaking facade, upgrade to a more energy efficient product or just wish to increase the integrity and value of your investment—when done correctly, this can be a fantastic benefit to your home.
