Cemintel® Headland is a more traditional style fibre cement weatherboard which suits classic Australian homes like Queenslanders and suburban cottages. When timber weatherboards were in fashion, many years ago, they featured decorative profiles with chamfers, rebates and beads machined into them.

Cemintel Headland weatherboards are 10 mm thick and feature a horizontal linear rebate (groove). Firstly, it gives a traditional ornamental detail. Secondly, the groove lines up with the bottom of the board above to cleverly deepen the shadow line giving the appearance of a thicker weatherboard.

Durable Headland fibre cement weatherboards are an external cladding which suits older homes with sash windows and decorative timber window mouldings.

Technical Information

Headland Weatherboards Information

Rebated fibre cement weatherboards on external walls are as Aussie as corrugated iron roofs. Australia built timber weatherboard homes from the 1850s when timber was plentiful and sawmills became efficient. In the 1950’s weatherboard homes were the most commonly built style of home in Australia.

Nowadays, weatherboards are likely to be made from fibre cement making them more durable and lower maintenance. New weatherboard homes with simple gable or hip roofs are cost effective and easy to build. In two storey home designs, when the upper storey uses lightweight fibre cement weatherboards, structural costs can be reduced when compared with brick cladding.

Heritage homes like Queenslanders, workers cottages and some California Bungalows are decorative. This makes Headland weatherboards a good choice for renovation recladding or home extensions.

Headland Weatherboards Installation

Headland weatherboards feature a ship-lap joint where they overlap which makes them self aligning and faster to install. There’s no need to measure and line up the overlap.

Gun nail or hand nail the boards to timber stud frames or screw them to light gauge steel frames. Stud spacing can be up to 600 mm depending on wind zone requirements.

Fixing via a cavity wall system is also an option using vertical timber or fibre cement battens.

Cemintel Headland weatherboards are deemed suitable for use in applications where non-combustible materials are specified. As per the National Construction Code Volume One clause C2D1 Deemed-to-Satisfy Provisions (6) (d).

They’re suitable for Bushfire Attack Levels up to BAL-29 when constructed in accordance with Australian Standards AS3959. External walls in bushfire zones can be upgraded to BAL-FZ if the weatherboards are part of a fire rated plasterboard wall system.

After a more contemporary weatherboard without a rebate? Street style has two flat faced weatherboards to choose from:

  • Balmoral Weatherboards are similar in size to the Headland weatherboard. However, being 16 mm thick it has deeper, more contemporary shadow lines.
  • Scarborough Weatherboards are 12 mm thick with a medium shadow line. They’re 175mm wide with a 25mm overlap so they’re a similar size and a little more modern than Headland weatherboards.
