No it won't
Can it go over concrete?
Yes it can
What if I have aluminium or brick cladding on my home?
We remove the cladding and install the Formplex Board
Will it add value to my house?
Yes it will - see the Gallery to see the client's home that got a much higher valuation after the Formplexing of her home.
Is Excellboard just for new homes?
No, it is dual purpose and can be used both for new construction or recladding an existing home.
Do you see nails and joins?
No, Formplex nails and screws are hidden and will last a lifetime.

Yes, see our Finance page for details on how we can assist you to finance the Formplexing of your home.
Do my plans need to be approved prior to getting a quote?
No. It is best to talk to our building department when you at your ideas stage.
What if I want to extend my home in the future?
No problem. We are still supplying the same product lines as well as new ones.
We can match a house we formplexed 30 years ago.
How do I get a quote?
Call 1800 038145 to organise your no obligation free measure and quote today.
Why can't you give me a price over the phone?
It is very difficult and unprofessional to quote an existing home over the phone as we are quoting wall areas and shape, heights, accessibility. These are just some of the factors why we need to sight the home to give you an accurate estimation and it 's free and you are under no obligation. There is no 'hard sell'
Am I just covering up problems?
No this is a myth - Formplex contains the home preserving the weatherboards beneath.
Will my house be cooler in summer / warmer in winter?
Yes, an extra layer around the home will certainly save you money on your heating and cooling costs.
Brick homes take longer to cool down after a heat spell. Vinyl weatherboards will cool faster.
Does it reduce noise?
Yes. See above. thicker coating on the house will insulate against noise
I live on the coast - will this affect my Formplex?
Coastal living was one condition we considered when designing ExcellBoard so the answer is definitely - no.
Salt won't affect our product.
What is the importance of using lightweight boards?
The harsh Australian climate we live in means the ground will move more with contraction and expansion due to temperature change - lightweight boards put less pressure on the house frame.
Will it burn?
No - our boards are fire retardant so they won't support a flame when the source is removed.
How do I clean it?
Simple soapy water and a soft broom will do the job
Is it cheaper than painting?
In the long term yes. It would be wrong to compare the cost of one formplexing to one paint job because you won't paint once, but you will Formplex once.
Do you have distributers in each State?
We have Agents in each State to remove the need for the middle man. You only have to deal with Head Office to get the response you need on toll free 1800 038145
Can I buy it myself and install it?
The product must be installed correctly to move with the house and the weather. Installation is not as easy as it looks and the wrong installation can ruin your home. However, please ring our Building department and ask them to advise whether you can do it on 1800 038145
Is the board environmentally friendly?
Yes. Formplex products are environmentally friendly and no forests have been destroyed to produce our products.
Why should I use Formplex weatherboards?
Simple - you want the best you can get for your home - why settle for cheap imports not designed for our climate. We have been around for almost 30 years and are still leaders with a unique product we alone can offer you.
