PEFC-certified hardwood first choice for construction expert
31 January 2019 Construction
As Director and co-founder of the Australian design and construction company Cadence and Co, Darren Mills is familiar with advising clients on building materials. For the stables on his own Northern Sydney property, he selected Weathertex’s PEFC-certified Weathergroove timber panels.
Complementing a luxurious home in a peaceful bushland setting, the stables resemble an American barn with a curved ceiling and are clad in wide, natural hardwood timber panels. The high ceiling and volume of the panels adds to the impressive scale of this building.
A special kind of timber panels
Weathergroove Panels are the largest panels on the Australian market. They are well suited to the big scale of this building, yet can still be installed quickly and efficiently.
Weathertex produces these panels using 97% Australian hardwood timber with Responsible Wood certification – the PEFC national member for Australia.
This provides end users with peace of mind, as PEFC certification tracks forest-based products through the entire supply chain, from a sustainably-managed forest to the end product.
Cadence and Co has built a reputation for their attention to detail and ability to achieve, on projects of all sizes, an exceptional looking, high quality product without huge costs. The key to this ability lies in the careful selection of suppliers.
“Our customers are better informed than ever and seeking safer, alternative building materials," says Jason O’Hagan, Managing Director for Weathertex.
"They want value for money and high-quality products, but also seek brands that are transparent and demonstrate a social, safety and environmental responsibility. At Weathertex, we can tick all the boxes when it comes to customer trust by way of product transparency from our third-party certification.”
