If you look closely at the fine detail of James Hardie composite cladding, you can see why it has become so popular among fans of home improvement.

With a perfect imitation wood grain you can almost believe that you are looking at genuine stained timber — especially when it’s in black, like this latest job for Summit Cladding.

We were contacted by a householder from Wanstead, East London, who had been let down by a number of companies which had failed to honour promises to sort out some snagging issues on his property.

Summit to the rescue

Our client who, ironically, works as a construction project manager himself, had extended and modernised the property last year, but the finish to parts of the exterior of the house left a lot to be desired.

A former client of Summit Cladding had put us in touch, so we were determined to put on a good show with our professionalism and attention to detail.

The main problem facing our new client was that part of the build at the back of the house had left the walls at different levels, but it’s essential that cladding is fitted on a smooth and even surface.

Energy efficiency is key

Summit began by fitting and, where necessary, packing the treated timber battens which anchor the cladding, to achieve that level surface. But before the black James Hardie cladding went on, we installed a 25mm layer of Kingspan insulation to maximise energy efficiency.

As mentioned above, the colour chosen for the cladding was midnight black, a traditional and sophisticated look, to match the rest of the house. We also fitted black round gutters to complete the installation.

Our client was delighted with the finish which, like all James Hardie products, comes with a 10-year guarantee and is entirely maintenance-free.
