Castellation Composite Cladding in Earlwood, New South Wales


According to Patrick Touma of Pace Built, this was their first time using NewTechWood. Initially, he was seeking a composite timber to avoid maintenance due to high-traffic areas like the pool, and hard-to-access areas, such as the blades on the side elevation.

Low maintenance alternative to timber cladding

He compared products and decided NewTechWood was the best product he could find that met all his requirements. In his own words, “Installation was straightforward, design well thought, (product) support was amazing, and it was affordable.”

There was a large team involved in the design. Initially, the team at Bechara Chan and Associates designed for timber cladding. Then Patrick Toumar engaged an interior designer Mia Lake Interiors, who recommended timber decking around the pool.

However, as the builder, Patrick came up with the best way to implement the design as an architectural feature that was easy to construct and offered low maintenance. In this case, low-maintenance composite cladding – NewTechWood.



Colour matched across decking, cladding and screening composite range

However, Patrick said the black with the black aluminium frame was the trickiest to design, however, he drew inspiration from different avenues, especially from flooring suppliers, and the end result speaks for itself.

A major benefit to designers is the ability to match colours across the entire range of NewTechWood’s decking, cladding and screening/fencing profiles.
