This technology reflects harmful UV from the sun and therefore helps protect both the paint and the cladding from damage. Resene Lumbersider is a popular choice for outdoor use on timber claddings. It’s a tough waterborne low-sheen paint with a natural look that is fully washable. Or opt for Resene Sonyx 101 for a semi-gloss finish. The glossier the finish, usually the easier it is to clean. The lower sheen the finish, the better it hides surface imperfections. If you want to paint timber that has been previously left to weather, use Resene TimberLock first. It’s a multi- functional treatment that regenerates wood fibres laid bare by UV and weather attack, so will improve the performance and life of the paint topcoat. Above and left: A good clean-up and a new colour scheme has turned the Shand house in Invercargill from a plain Jane to a smart character home. The couple removed a clutter of 1970s attachments like timber shutters, scrolled edging, a garden arch and plants growing up the walls. They then knocked on the door of a house with colours they liked; those owners were only too happy to share their scheme which was Resene Triple Thorndon Cream cladding with a Resene Ironsand roof. The Shands then added Resene Eighth Thorndon Cream on the window frames. The green-edged tones of the Resene Thorndon Cream variants now beautifully offset the feature red bricks and tidied garden. Resene Ironsand Above: The modernist lines and striking window configurations of this home weren’t a problem… but the plaster cladding was. The owners commissioned Sketch Architecture to come up with a cladding solution. The parapet design was retained but the facade was simplified by removing the ‘eyebrows’ above the windows. Vertical cedar cladding was chosen to add interest via shadow lines with two different profiles giving a subtle change between the main house, and the garage and cantilevered entry canopy. The cedar was finished in Wood-X oil in colour Flint, available from Resene ColorShops. New exterior lights further accentuate the lines of the cladding and the form of the house.
