What is Blue Board ?

Blue Board has been used extensively for building and construction for many years as an external base cladding material for residential home, alterations and additions. It is a lightweight, cost effective solution that can create a rendered appearance.

It can be used for full wrap or composite construction designs on timber or light gauge steel frame homes but is often used in conjunction with masonry and light framed upper storeys or for decorative features and fences.

Looking for an alternative to masonry when it comes to cladding? 

Blue Board is the perfect lightweight cladding solution for residential and commercial buildings, offering the appearance of a rendered wall without the excess weight, price and installation times. Blue Board arrives on-site as a strong, pre-primed base sheet that can be installed on timber or steel-framed houses. Once installed, it’s finished with a texture coat system that includes joint reinforcement to ensure minimal shrinkage.
