Macrocarpa Cladding

Although Macrocarpa has been a proven cladding for many years MacDirect has seen their cladding sales increase rapidly in recent years, as home owners see it's special attributes. A NZ exotic, chemically free, durable, stable timber, it can be painted, stained, or left to naturally silver off.   MacDirect can pre-coat your weatherboard with your coating of choice. For building code purposes, MacDirect can supply a producer statement stating the timber supplied is heart material.  Our cladding is specifically graded for weatherboard, No.1 panel grade, heart, with small, tight knots.  It should be noted that panel grade weatherboard is a higher grade than panel grade sarking.  This has no bark inclusion.
