    Hi,

    I'm not really sure of the best option to refurbish our mock tudor fronting. I have attached a picture of what its like currently, we are in the process of a re-roof and extension so now is a good time to sort this whilst we have scaffolding up.

    I was looking at the tudor pvc boards, but these are coming in at over £700 to buy! :cry:

    Then i'm thinking to just get them replaced in wood, but what would I should use? Maybe I should just replace the rotting pieces, however I would feel better knowing that all the wood was sound.

    Any suggestions or ideas welcome!

    Oh and just to add - we will be having a re-render so the renderer was going to render between the boards.

    thanks,
    Dave

    Get tudorboards in Cannock to send you a sample of their polyurethane. It’s expensive but fit and forget. Best stuff we’ve ever used. Work out the cost of two lots of timber and scaffolding over a 20 year period and see how close it is to the polyurethane cost doing it once.

    thanks for the replies guys.

    so timber would cost me about £150 (if i was to replace ALL of it - some of it can be saved i think)

    i have already had a sample from that place - looked very good - but it would cost over £600 for what i need! :(

    Not really. You need to spend hours painting it in order to get it to the standard of the decent placcy stuff. Then compare. Then add (as MWR said) the bi-annual costs of maintenance over a couple of decades.

    Complete no-brainer.

    Tranalised has something like a 60 year no rot guarantee. Soak it in a suitable stain (not surface coating) and it will perform as good and as long as any mock mock timber

    thanks all.

    so if I went for the polyurethane, would these attached without issues to the existing board (could be asbestos?). We will be rendering these boards at a later date anyway.

    thanks,
    Dave

    No Asbestos - wood surely ? Anyway the black painted bargeboard is going to need constant painting - unless you mean that you'll replace that with plastic. Is that area the only mock Tudor bit on the house ? Subject to checking with local Council I personally would do away with the lot and end with a rendered plain triangle and a light coloured barge board. Actually I'd probably just do it and paint some fake beams on IF I was forced to by some jobsworth(y)

    Nope, we think it's the original aspestos cement sheet (it's a 1930s house). I have decided to buy the tudor boards from tudorboard.com and replicate what we already have and render in between the same colour of the house. We didn't want to get rid of the boards as it adds to the character of the house and part of the reason we fell in love with it in the first instance.

    Glad you have decided not to do that anyway (y)

    We re rendered an old 1950’s house before putting new Tudor boards on and we thought the panelling was wood. It ended up being sheets of asbestos, must have been like 2 ft by 8ft sheets painted white. Never seen them before. Never seen since.

    There is some 1988 build houses near my house, which have the tudor board affect. would they likely to be ACM?
