High Quality Fibre Cement Weatherboard

Classic New Zealand Style using Modern Materials

The perfect alternative to traditional wood siding, Shera Overlap Weatherboard (plank) is one of the safest, sustainable and popular products in exterior cladding.

Shera weatherboards is a unique fibre cement composite consisting of natural fibres bonded tightly in a high-grade silicate structure. The result is a material that is highly durable, flexible, water resistant, fireproof, resistant to insects and chemical corrosion.

Shera weatherboards are also highly workable using normal tools; in short: they can be used in all kinds of applications by architects, project developers and home owners.

Unlike traditional timber weatherboards, fibre cement weatherboards have no LRV restrictions. The weatherboard can be painted any colour you wish.


Perfect Combination

Classified as a light wall cladding, Shera Overlap weatherboard is suitable for residential and light commercial type buildings.


Also, perfect for multi-unit residential projects, especially when used in conjunction with our XpressClad or Shera Vertical Shiplap claddings

Boxed Corner

Cover your corners with fibre cement strips to create a solid contrast with the weatherboards and highlight the verticals and corners. Use 15mm thick fibre cement sheet, and cut to suit on site for your selected cover width.

Aluminium Back Soaker at Joints

Weatherproof joints with a hidden Aluminium Back Soaker, with sealant applied between ends of the boards. Leave sealant proud and allow it to completely cure before trimming off.


Joints shall be positioned between studs, min. 100mm away from timber stud.


Stagger joints at a min. 600mm from joints in the adjacent board.

Face Fixing

Shera Weatherboards are face fixed through the cavity battens and wall underlay, into the framing at max. 600mm centres with Stainless Steel Jolt Head Nails.


Always ensure the correct nail length is selected to ensure min. framing penetration is achieved.

Always pre-drill nail holes to suit diameter of selected nail size and hand nail.

A storey rod is always recommended to keep all laps and cover consistent.
