How long does weatherboard cladding last?

Weatherboard cladding is a popular choice for many homes and commercial buildings, thanks to its classic look and durability. But how long does weatherboard cladding actually last?

Depending on the material and the quality of the installation, weatherboard cladding can last anywhere from 10 to 100 years. Here are some of the most common materials used for weatherboard cladding, and their estimated lifespan:

  • Hardwood: 20-40 years
  • Cedar: 20-30 years
  • Composite: 50-100 years
  • Vinyl: 20-40 years

Of course, these are just estimates – your weatherboard cladding could last longer or shorter depending on a variety of factors, such as exposure to the elements, the quality of the materials used, and the quality of the installation.

If you want to make sure your weatherboard cladding lasts as long as possible, it’s important to choose high-quality materials and to have the cladding installed by a professional. With proper care and maintenance, your weatherboard cladding should last for many years to come.


If a board is damaged, can it be replaced individually?

Yes, weatherboards can be replaced individually. This can be a good option if only a few boards are damaged, and the rest of the siding is in good condition. Replacing individual boards is also less expensive than replacing an entire section of siding.
