Low Maintenance

Today your new Storybook home can be low maintenance ( and meets the fire codes up to BAL 40 ), utilising many available cladding products suitable for our lightweight architecture. These include a variety of cement fibre cladding options that perfectly emulate the traditional weatherboard look or more modern profiles for contemporary designs.

These products do not rot or shrink; their inert nature and surface qualities provide a superior key for today’s long-lasting paints. You’ll see many examples of Storybook designs using a combination of these products like render, simulated stone, Colorbond, natural timber cladding that patina with age etc.. Storybook homes come standard with double-glazed timber windows. Still, if you want to avoid painting, they look great too with low maintenance powder coated double-glazed aluminium windows that come in a choice of colours.

Storybook love our fabulous Aussie product, ‘ colorbond ‘ roofing, the flexibility, the colours and the longevity. The great thing about lightweight architecture is that the building can withstand a degree of flexing, whereas brickwork will simply crack.

Imagine the freedom of designing your dream home with colours matching your imagination and never having to worry about repainting it! With state-of-the-art exterior paints boasting lifetime guarantees on properly prepared new surfaces, your Storybook home will remain beautiful and low-maintenance for years. No more tedious touch-ups or laborious upkeep – just pure enjoyment of your custom-made haven. So why settle for traditional brick and tile when you can live in the house of your dreams?
