Project Description


This project involved a significant transformation of a home in Harpenden through the installation of Hardie cladding. The process required careful planning and execution, ensuring a seamless integration with the existing structure.


The first step in the process was the removal of the existing hanging tiles. This was done meticulously to prevent any damage to the underlying structure. Once the tiles were removed, new battens were fitted to provide a secure base for the Hardie cladding.

Insulation and Breathable Membrane Installation

To enhance the energy efficiency of the home, insulation was installed between the battens. This was followed by the application of a breathable membrane. The membrane serves a dual purpose – it allows moisture from inside the house to escape, preventing condensation and dampness, while also providing a barrier against external elements.

Hardie Cladding Installation

With the preparation complete, the Hardie cladding was installed. Known for its durability and aesthetic appeal, Hardie cladding was the perfect choice for this home transformation. The cladding was installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, ensuring a high-quality finish.


The project was a success, resulting in a significant transformation of the home in Harpenden. The new Hardie cladding not only enhanced the aesthetic appeal of the house but also improved its energy efficiency thanks to the added insulation and breathable membrane. This project is a testament to our commitment to quality and attention to detail.
