High profile – James Hardie's Scyon Linea Weatherboard


Remodelling will upgrade the look of a home without the cost and hassle of a total renovation. The right product can offer a variety of benefits, such as standout durability, a minimal upkeep and complete all-weather protection.

Namu Construction uses Scyon Linea Weatherboard by James Hardie on all its home remodelling projects, says manager Jenny Lim.

"We work with Scyon Linea because it is made for New Zealand conditions. Our clients can rest assured that this product will keep their home weathertight and resistant to damage from fire, moisture and rot for decades to come.

"Then there is the extremely easy upkeep. Scyon Linea Weatherboards only need painting once every 15 years. A washdown once a year will keep the house always looking its best, so owners save on cost, time and hassle.

"Scyon Linea Weatherboard also works for us because it is easily manipulated or mitred on site and is speedy to install."


The house featured here originally had a plaster facade that had become tired, and was vulnerable to leaks. Scyon Linea's crisp, clean lines have a fresh appearance. With the same classic shadow lines as timber weatherboards, this modern cladding system complements the contemporary style of the house.

Namu Construction renovates to a very high standard, while maintaining an excellent price point. The company's last remodel netted the homeowner in the region of $400K, says Lim.
