    Just received the boards from tudor boards in cannock. Have to say, really impressed with how they look, not plastic and cheap at all.

    Post a pic on here when it’s all done. Try and render first and plant the boards on top it will show the true thickness of the boards.

    I was actually going to go back to the company and ask if we should render first or not, but I see what you mean by rendering before the boards are up.

    The PVC boards look terrible though, unless you like the plasticy shine.

    As another poster said, get some decent treated timber.

    The entrance surround and vertical corners are timber. The rest is polyurethane mock Tudor boards from https://tudorboard.com/
