Yes we do. If you are unable to find the profile you require we do offer custom profiling, treatment and priming services. Please contact our Customer Service team for pricing and lead times. We are however, unable to accept any returns on custom profiled orders.
Light Reflective Value refers to the percentage of light that is reflected by a paint color. The lighter the color, the higher the number on a scale of 0-100. Black for example has a Light Reflective Value of 0% and absorbs all light and can get very hot as a result.
As per our guidelines, dark colors, with a Light Reflective Value (LRV) less than 45% should be avoided as they absorb heat and could cause excessive movement, dimensional distortion and/or severe resin bleed. Our warranty covers weatherboard that is primer under-coated and painted with two top coats of quality oil based or high-grade acrylic paint with a LRV of 45 or more.
Alternatively, you can opt for Thermally Modified Cladding which allows for darker paint colors – see Pineclad TMT
Before painting, please refer to national building standards: NZS2311-2017 Guide to Painting of Buildings. Weatherboards must be painted at an Equilibrium Moisture Content (EMC) as per these guidelines.
