Choosing your cladding

Boost your street appeal with Dimond® Cladding

So, you're building a house or renovating, how exciting! And maybe a little overwhelming? Especially when you consider that your cladding can form 70% of your street frontage.

The cladding you select can completely transform the look, feel, and even the value of your home. As well as the overall visual effect you want to create, you’ll need to consider some functional elements – like how close you are to the sea or whether it snows where you live.

Luckily, the Dimond® range of metal cladding products provides a solution for every unique home.

Design freedom with Dimondclad Rib50

If versatility is what is needed, then Dimondclad is the perfect cladding solution. Dimondclad’s clean, efficient lines and well-concealed laps are excellent for both exterior and interior cladding. Dimondclad Rib 50 features wide ribs with narrow pans for the opposite look to Dimondclad Rib 20. The Dimondclad range is great for freedom of design, while still offering the durability required for New Zealand’s unique environments.
