reSAWN TIMBER co. – ABODO®
NERO :: Vulcan Cladding
This home is beautiful example of the performance of Abodo’s Vulcan Cladding in NERO finish after three years of weathering. It’s performing very well, with no recoat. The exterior appearance of the timber still looks great and the homeowners are extremely satisfied with the product.

For this project, Vulcan Cladding in NERO finish (WB10S profile) was selected for 2 reasons:

  • The homeowner was searching for a dark aesthetic
  • Timber stability and longevity
Due to its exposure to all the elements, the color has performed exceptionally well given it’s located 
in the harsh climate of Western Australia where conditions can be incredibly dry and hot.

The cladding had a coat of NERO factory finish, and then another two after it was installed.

Also, Vulcan Cladding was very simple to install – and it was easy to carry around on site since it’s lightweight. Some early scheduling on set-up and flashing details will bring enormous benefits to the end results.

Valento Homes receives consistently positive feedback on this project, which has been a major focus on its website, especially given the dramatic effect of the design and the dark timber cladding.

For Valento Homes it has been so successful that they are now using Vulcan Cladding on a number of client projects.

For these reasons, Vulcan has become a Go-to-Timber for future projects:

  • It gives Valento Homes the flexibility to use it for internal and external applications
  • Vulcan is available in a range of finishes and colors
  • The timber is lightweight and easy to work with
  • Vulcan is incredibly stable, so Valento Homes haven’t had to deal with maintenance issues. This is also a huge plus for their clients and the style of homes they construct

 

 

 

 

After three years of weathering, this show-stopping home is a magnificent showcase of Abodo’s Vulcan Cladding in Nero finish.

This stunning Black Box luxury home by Valento Homes features Abodo’s Vulcan Cladding.

These images were taken three years since installation – and the timber cladding in Ebony finish has performed exceptionally well, with no recoat.

The appearance of the timber exterior still looks fantastic and the homeowners are very happy with the product.

Vulcan Cladding in Ebony finish (WB10S profile) was chosen for this project for two reasons:

  1. To achieve the design appearance the homeowner was looking for, in this case dark black/ebony
  2. The stability and longevity of the timber

The colour has performed exceptionally well given its exposure to all the elements – located in harsh climate of Western Australia where conditions can be incredibly dry and hot.

The cladding had one factory coat of Ebony finish, and then two more after installation.

Vulcan Cladding was also very simple to install – and being lightweight was easy to move around on site. Some early planning on the set-out and flashing details will bring huge benefits to the end results.
