Choosing the Perfect Exterior Finishes for Your Home

Selecting the ideal exterior finishes for your home holds significant importance for two key reasons. Firstly, your home's exterior serves as the initial impression that people form. Before they even step inside, they've already begun evaluating your home based on its exterior. Therefore, it is crucial that the exterior exudes a visually appealing charm.

Secondly, and more importantly, using exterior products that are reliable, durable, and capable of withstanding the elements is essential for ensuring your home stands the test of time.

While you may have personal preferences for the exterior products, in many instances, relying on the expertise of professionals is advisable. Your architect or designer possesses the knowledge to guide you, offering recommendations for exterior finishes that align with your desired aesthetic, ensuring reliability, and identifying options that suit your budget.

The cladding in the above project - Precision on Pitau, featured Cedar and Stellaria Bricks. The distinctively angled cedar cladding was conceived by Adam Taylor from ATA. This style of cedar cladding, a first in New Zealand, resulted from a close collaboration between Adam Taylor, Ray from Rosenfield Kidson, and the Fairbairn Builders team. 

Here at Fairbairn Builders, with over 25 years of experience building in Tauranga, Jamie has a vast knowledge of the various exterior products available. He understands the costs involved and the maintenance that is required, so having his guidance along with the Architect at the planning stage can be invaluable.
