Young and Bracey have added a new profile to its range of Vinyl cladding, with a sleek modern contour that creates clean lines and a deep shadow. DuraTech is reminiscent of traditional house cladding, creating the look of simple flat weatherboards laid over each other, while providing all the benefits of vinyl wall cladding.
DuraTech Vinyl Cladding is exterior cladding built for modern Australian homes. It features Duratechnology, a patented colour protection process that creates longer lasting colour and an impact resistant board. Austech is so confident in this, that we offer a 50 year product warranty, providing you peace of mind and maintenance free living.
When compared to its competitors, vinyl cladding outshines them on all fronts:
Fibre Cement Weatherboards: looks great when installed, but quickly deteriorates. Boards shrink and expand in the Australian sun, degrading paint and damaging seams that then require re-caulking. Fibre cement also has low thermal resistance, and unlike exterior vinyl cladding, it does not have added insulation.
Wooden Weatherboards: Traditional weatherboards cost a lot to install, but there is also the annual hassle of sanding, re-painting and repairing that you don’t see straight away. All wooden products also are vulnerable to termites and bush fires, making wooden cladding impractical for Australian homes.
Aluminium Exterior Cladding – Popular in the 90’s, but it just can’t keep up with vinyl today. Aluminium cladding is maintenance free, but it generally costs 3-4 times as much as vinyl. Aluminium wall cladding, like an aluminium can, is easily dented and scratched and can’t be repaired. Many owners find it’s more cost effective to re-clad their whole home in vinyl than repair their damaged aluminium cladding.
DuraTech Vinyl Wall Cladding is available with added 20mm or 30mm solid insulation, providing added insulation to your home. This is ideal for old houses that are reclad because you don’t have to rip the walls off to add insulation. DuraTech is also good for new homes because it provides a continuous thermal barrier, not just fills in gaps between wooden studs.
