CSR Cemintel delivers a unique and striking finish
The new Cemintel Designer Series™ on two specification-homes.

Queensland building company Medlim recently opted to use the new Cemintel Designer Series™ on two specification-homes, built side-by-side, achieving a stunning and unique look for each house. Medlim needed a walling solution which was different, easy to install, while offering longevity and low maintenance.

The two houses are identical in layout and land size, both with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two media rooms and a small backyard. Each house was built using different styles of textured panels from the new Cemintel Designer Series range, and the project took just four months to complete.

Owner of Medlim, Gerry Vanderstam says, “This was our first experience we had of using a CSR Cemintel™ product and we are delighted with the results. The Cemintel Designer Series delivers time savings for installation, a fantastic finish and the reassurance of being a high quality product really makes it stand out. I would definitely recommend it to other builders.

“With the two houses on a main road, people are always stopping me and asking how we achieved such a great finish. The texture, colour and final finish of the houses are very striking.”

Cemintel Designer Series is an innovative range of durable, pre-finished panels, which come in a variety of unique modern textures and colours that are easy to install and ideal for any façade application.

Gerry says, “My aim was to achieve a modern contemporary design while also ensuring that each house had its own unique style. There are really three key factors that we look for in a walling solution: ease of installation, a striking appearance and low maintenance, the new Cemintel Designer Series provides all of these.”

With specification home building, speedy construction is important, builders need to be able to work quickly, efficiently and cost effectively. Gerry adds it was the Trade Builders Group that first recommended the new product and urged them to try out something different.

Gerry says, “I found the installation of the Cemintel Designer Series simple. Attaching the product was easy and efficient, especially when compared to other walling materials. I was particularly pleased that you cannot notice any external joints.

“On top of this, the flexibility offered by the wide range of colours and textures that Cemintel Designer Series also really appealed to us.”

The Cemintel Designer Series consists of five different styles of textured panels in a range of different colours: the ultra modern i-Cube, Textured, Slimline, Woodgrain and Smooth.

By using the range, designers and builders have the opportunity to easily tailor and differentiate their building designs. Textured offers a choice of three different coloured panels: Sandstone, Ebony and Alpine.

Medlim has been in operation for 11.5 years and is backed by a solid track record. Gerry adds, “We are extremely proud of using quality finishes and workmanship, to ensure happy and satisfied customers.”
