Duratuff Select Vinyl Weatherboards has been chosen to feature on Better Homes and Gardens in a segment about instant house facelifts. The segment focuses on how homeowners can quickly and inexpensively improve their home while adding thousands to its value.

The Better Homes and Gardens production crew chose Duratuff because it represented exactly what they needed, a cost effective, good looking and low maintenance house cladding. One of the crew even had their own house re-clad with Duratuff a few years ago and insisted that it still looks like new.

Rob Palmer, the Better Homes and Gardens DIY host and builder, was especially impressed by Duratuff, describing it as “Botox for your home” because it doesn’t age with time. Vinyl weatherboards are designed to keep their colour and shape for a lifetime, with no cracking, peeling, chipping or re-painting, that’s why Austech offers a 50 year product warranty on the whole range of Duratuff Vinyl weatherboards.

Unfortunately Rob couldn’t do the whole house himself, so Country Style Cladding fitted the cladding and installed some new windows. The homeowner chose White Duratuff Select Vinyl weatherboards, with 20 mm foam insulation and a layer of reflective foil.

The homeowner had an older home with minimal wall insulation, so insulated weatherboards where ideal for adding the extra insulation he needed without extensive renovations. The insulation is not limited by studs like insulation batts, so the home gets a uniform covering of insulation, helping to maintain indoor temperatures and reduce the owner’s electricity bill.

Vinyl weatherboards aren’t just for improving old homes. Duratuff was so good to work with that the Better Homes and Gardens team also suggested it for potential future segments, including renovations, extensions, first floor additions, cubby houses and sheds, so expect to see more Duratuff on TV in the future.
