Building a new home and confused what material to use?

Wondering if weatherboard is the right material for your home?

Weatherboard homes have gained in popularity over the years. Known for being durable and energy efficient, an increasing number of South Australians are opting for weatherboard homes. At Grandview Homes, we build quality weatherboard homes that are magnificent and make your home stand out in the neighborhood.

Extremely Durable

To some, the thought of a weatherboard home brings images of cracked timber boards that need painting every second year and weekends full of maintenance. However, this is no longer the case!

The boards that Grandview Homes use are 16 mm thick fiber cement, that are almost identical in shape to the old timber weatherboards of the Victorian era with similar height and thickness. These weatherboards are made from a lightweight but heavy duty advanced cement composite that is termite, rot and fire resistant.

Additionally, these boards resist shrinking, swelling and cracking. They are designed so as to hold paint longer. You will be surprised to know that these boards require the same amount of painting work as a rendered brick or blue-board home.

Energy Efficient

Our weatherboard homes easily achieve a 5-star energy rating. In fact, they are more energy efficient than a lot of brick veneer homes.

At Grandview Homes, we are focused on building energy efficient homes. We achieve this by combining:

  • A careful orientation of the home with living areas facing North, wherever possible
  • Having verandahs, particularly on western facing walls
  • Pouring concrete slab floors
  • Using isolation (reflective foil) and heavy duty insulation in both the walls and the ceilings

If more efficiency is required,we double glaze the windows & doors,besides building 120mm thick external walls with higher insulation.

Our Reputation Is Attention To Detail

We lay strong emphasis on attention to detail.For instance,to become experts in building Victorian era homes,countless hours have been spent in the Victorian goldfield towns of Ballarat & Bendigo – measuring, making templates, taking hundreds of photo’s & getting the details right – from looking at thousands of magnificent weatherboard homes that are still standing in these towns.

This research enables us to incorporate authentic features of the Victorian Era – such as beautiful timber doors & windows,eave & gable brackets,tall finials,steep pitched rooflines,high ceilings,decorative plaster archways & cornices,high skirting boards & wide architraves – into our designs.

Building Characteristic Homes


No two of our homes are ever the same and we encourage clients to customize floor plans to suit their own needs.

While our homes have very authentic exteriors, the interiors usually tend to have a more modern layout. At the same time, we use traditional features such as entrance hallways, archways, timber fretwork and four panel internal doors, to retain the style of that era. Fittings and fixtures such as cabinets and bathrooms can be in a very traditional style or they may be simple and modern depending on your individual style and preference. Whatever your final design may be, it is sure to be a home that will be talked about for many years to come!

Termite Resistant Homes

At Grandview Homes,we believe that our termite barrier system is the best available in the industry!We use a chemical under-floor spray combined with Kordon service penetration Kollars & a Kordon under-wall frame perimeter barrier.For your further peace of mind,termite resistant wall & roof framing timber can also be used as an extra barrier.

Our homes are hand crafted the old fashioned way by tradespeople that take pride in their work. The quality of the construction, the finishes and the appearance of our homes is extremely important to us.
