we reclad in datk grey colourbond. The yellow was painted ceder, if it had been left to weather we wouldnt have changed it. The renovation has allowed us to make repairs and subtle changes (windows moved and doors replaced) and makes us more fire resistant in a bush fire prone area ... we love it!!

How does Shou Sugi Ban compare in price with the likes of zinc or other timber look options?

Storewall, are you asking in regard to Shou Sugi Ban? In that case, no it doesn’t need painting - the carbon (burnt timber) is protective (ie sun/fade/water/weather/fire resistant)
