Cedral Transforms Riverside Retreat
Learn more about how Cedral Was used to transform a 20 year old bungalow.
Cedral fibre cement cladding has played an essential role in the completion of a stunning £250,000 rebuild of a 20-year-old bungalow into a two-storey holiday retreat.
Located in the heart of Ambleside in the Lake District, the property is built within a Flood Zone 3, directly next to a river. The original bungalow had to be completely demolished due to damage caused by three separate floods over the last two decades.
After weighing up a variety of options, a decision was then made to rebuild the property and ensure that it meets the criteria based on its location.
In its place, a stylish New England inspired property has been built in conjunction with the local Park Authority, who ruled that the new build’s construction had to offer up to 100 years of flood resistance.
In order to meet this requirement, Cedral Lap fibre cement cladding was chosen due to its resilience against the external elements, supporting the property to stand up to harsh winds, rain and all of the other elements.
Cedral Lap cladding was selected due to it offering a minimum life expectancy of 50 years.Cedral Lap in colour Cream White was installed across the whole of the three-bedroom property, creating a traditional exterior that was perfectly in keeping with the picturesque Ambleside landscape.
We specified Cedral fibre cement cladding as the material will completely dry out after coming into contact with flood water. Its resilience also makes it resistant to any potential warping, shrinking or rotting, enabling the homeowners to enjoy their home without any concerns that the property may be significantly damaged after a flood.”
