We initially purchased our home when we were starting out as a young married couple with very little savings. It was a basic two bedroom west-facing home with a timber weatherboard exterior.
Due to the west-facing aspect, our home is exposed to the full force of the sun in summer making for uncomfortable living during the warmer months. This has contributed to increased air conditioner usage and high energy bills.
My wife and I decided that once we could manage our mortgage repayments more comfortably, we would renovate our existing home to accommodate the needs of our growing family (which at this stage had expanded to include 2 young children under the age of 4) and in doing so, find a way to minimise our energy costs.
Earlier this year, our original home was expanded to include 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a study. We opted for a modern layout resulting in an open plan living design. My wife and I wanted this upgraded look to be reflected in the external façade of our home. Having just completed a full home renovation and still paying off our mortgage, we didn’t have endless funds for high cost external materials when it came to applying the final touches to the exterior of the property.
We decided to enlist the professionals at Mitten Vinyl Australia to help us achieve the modern look we wanted within our allocated budget.
Following a consultation with our professional team of cladding experts, Andrew and his wife selected Sentry Acrylic house cladding as their material of choice, as they were seeking a modern look that was affordable, durable and maintenance free.
Sentry cladding features a sleek design using wide panels and neutral hues to create an idyllic modern Australian look. Composed of a snug weatherproof barrier and durable materials especially designed to meet the unique demands of our Australian climate, Sentry cladding is the perfect choice for anyone building their “forever home”, offering peace of mind and lifetime energy efficiency.
The couple chose classic grey and white tones to complete the exterior of their newly renovated home. The exterior was dressed in academy grey sentry cladding, with contrasting eaves in White.
Sentry cladding proved to be a cost-effective solution, enabling them to extend the upgrade of their home’s exterior to include their decking area, which was covered with complementary Heritage Grey Sentry Cladding.
Double-glazed windows were also installed to ensure lower energy bills all year round. These windows have robust multi-chambered frames with air pockets inside for insulation, as well as sashes with welded corners, so that air and water never penetrate. Double-glazed windows keep the summer heat out and retain the winter warmth, providing affordable trans-seasonal climate control – making them an ideal investment for any family home. Mitten Vinyl Australia were able to help Andrew and his wife create a ‘designer style’ home without breaking the bank, which will be cherished for many years to come.
Overall, the couple couldn’t believe there was such a ‘quick turnaround’ and were very impressed with the costs associated with achieving their desired look, which to their surprise fell well within their available budget. They were extremely satisfied with our workmanship and the professionalism displayed by our friendly staff, reporting::
'Ash was great to deal with…very professional and willing to answer our questions along the way…With two young children, it was important we had as little disruption as possible…Ash certainly respected that. He left the backyard spotless once he was finished. He was a pleasure to deal with.' (Andrew)
