Cladding is your home’s first line of defence and a primary contributor to its street front appeal. Without weathertight cladding, your home is susceptible to leaks, draughts, and, potentially, taking out the title of the worst looking home on the block!
In other words, exterior cladding is not the place to cut corners. Let the experts at Refresh take over and deliver a fantastic exterior renovation that you can be proud of. Just get in touch with a Marlborough Renovation Consultant to arrange a free consultation.
Recladding your home is a big undertaking requiring expertise and specialised processes, including scaffolding. Coordinating all of this can be a headache, but it doesn’t have to be.
Our aim at Refresh is to provide homeowners with an enjoyable renovation experience by eliminating complications that plague the renovation industry; namely, miscommunication, poor planning, and mismanaged projects.
Starting with an initial consultation, a Renovation Consultant will guide you through each stage of the process. They’re there to provide support in every way, from advising you on the right home recladding materials to offering design inspiration. All you need to do is ask.
Once you’ve discussed your ideas and budget, concept drawings and feasibility checks will follow. This allows your Renovation Consultant to determine if your plans are achievable before moving forward.
The concepts will then progress into working drawings, accompanied by a fixed quote, which take into account the engineering and structural aspects as well as the cosmetic look. Any changes to the plans are best done now as it is more expensive to make alterations once work begins and materials have been ordered.
After reviewing the project, your Renovation Consultant will arrange for everything to be submitted to the council for approval. And once consent is given, work can begin! The contractors and suppliers will all be coordinated through your Renovation Consultant who will communicate fully and remain your single point of contact throughout. No need to worry about wrangling multiple contractors or adhering to suppliers' schedules. All that’s left for you to do is watch your project take form.
There’s a cladding type to complement the many residential property styles in Marlborough.
Perfect for cottages, heritage homes, and other traditional styles, weatherboard cladding is a tried and true classic. Weatherboard is durable and paints well, making it easily customisable to fit a variety of styles.
Abodo cladding differs from other styles because it’s installed vertically. While it retains its natural tone, it can completely transform a home’s exterior when painted black, as it often is when adorning modern homes. Cedar cladding, another timber option, is quite versatile and can suit different styles but lends itself particularly nicely to rustic homes and pairs well with brick.
Get in touch with a local Marlborough Renovation Consultant to discuss other options of cladding, such as Palliside® cladding, colour steel cladding or board and batten cladding, that could suit your home.

Each renovation is unique, so without knowing the scope of your home recladding project it’s impossible to determine the cost. But, to give you a rough idea of what can be achieved at different price points, here are two recent Refresh exterior cladding projects.
A 20-year-old extension needed an exterior cladding refresh which cost $150,000*. Here’s what that included:
- Timber cladding
- Installing new front-facing windows
- A new front door
This renovation entailed a full exterior cladding makeover for a two-storey villa. The transformation cost $170,000* and included:
- Restoring window sashes
- Weatherboard reclad and paint
- Metal roof replacement
- Custom leadlight
- Custom mouldings, eave brackets, and lattices
*Costs are rough estimates and are subject to change. For a fixed-quote accurate to your specific project, please consult your local Refresh Renovation Consultant.
Yes, we take care of any council applications required for home recladding projects in Marlborough.
Some projects may be exempt, but since cladding contributes to a building’s fire safety properties, it’s likely your project will require council consent. Your Renovation Consultant will arrange for all necessary permits to be obtained from the council so you can rest assured your project will be completed up to code.
