Delivery cost calculated at checkout.

Product Description

Villaboard™ lining is a high-quality sanded fibre cement sheet featuring recessed edges that allow for seamless jointing. This product is tailored for use as an internal wall and ceiling lining, particularly suitable for areas like bathrooms, laundries, and kitchens, as well as high-traffic zones in residential, medium-density, and commercial structures.

It offers versatile finishing options, including painting, wallpapering, or partial to full tiling, providing a variety of design possibilities. Villaboard is compatible with both timber and light gauge steel framed constructions.

With significantly higher tensile bond strength compared to plasterboard, Villaboard supports the use of thicker tiles higher up on walls. Its exceptional impact resistance makes Villaboard an ideal choice for areas susceptible to frequent wear and tear, underscoring its durability and practicality in demanding environments.

      James Hardie Villaboard

      When it comes to choosing durable lining for your construction projects, especially in moisture-prone areas, James Hardie Villaboard is a name that frequently comes up in industry discussions. Here's what you need to know about this versatile product, including its applications and installation tips, all optimized for your search queries.

      James Hardie Villaboard

      What is James Hardie Villaboard?

      James Hardie Villaboard is a premium, fibre cement lining that is perfect for wet area applications such as bathrooms, laundries, and kitchens. Its robust composition makes it a superior alternative to plasterboard due to its moisture-resistant properties and its ability to serve as a sturdy tile substrate.

      How to cut Villaboard?

      Cutting Villaboard requires specific tools for precision and safety. A dust-reducing saw or Hardie™ Villaboard Score and Snap Knife is recommended for clean cuts. For accuracy and safety, measure your cuts beforehand and always wear protective gear to safeguard against fibre cement dust.

      Does Villaboard contain asbestos?

      Safety is a top priority in modern building materials. James Hardie Villaboard is a contemporary product that is asbestos-free. James Hardie industries ceased using asbestos in their products in the 1980s, ensuring that their fibre cement products, including Villaboard, are safe and non-hazardous.

      Is Villaboard waterproof?

      While Villaboard is not waterproof, it is exceptionally moisture-resistant, making it ideal for internal wet areas. To achieve a waterproof system, a waterproof membrane should be applied in conjunction with Villaboard in areas subject to continuous water exposure.

      What thickness Villaboard for bathroom walls?

      The thickness of Villaboard for bathroom walls typically ranges from 6mm for standard residential applications to 9mm for areas requiring a more robust substrate for larger tiles or greater impact resistance. The selection of thickness should comply with the tile weight and size.

      Do you use stud adhesive on Villaboard?

      Stud adhesive should not be used with Villaboard. Villaboard should be fixed to the framing using the appropriate screws or nails as specified by the manufacturer's installation guidelines. It's important to use the correct fasteners and follow the recommended fixing pattern to ensure the boards are securely attached and to maintain their structural integrity and moisture-resistant properties. Always refer to the latest James Hardie installation guide for the most accurate and up-to-date installation instructions.

      Can Villaboard be used outside?

      James Hardie Villaboard is engineered primarily for internal use. However, for external applications, James Hardie offers a range of exterior-grade products that are designed to withstand the rigors of outdoor climates.

      Villaboard is not recommended for outdoor use where it would be exposed to direct weather elements. For external cladding needs, James Hardie provides specially formulated products that are designed to endure outdoor conditions while maintaining structural integrity.

      In conclusion, James Hardie Villaboard is an ideal solution for those seeking a high-quality, moisture-resistant lining for their wet area applications. Adhering to the recommended usage and installation guidelines will ensure that Villaboard serves as a long-lasting and reliable material for your building needs. If you're planning a renovation or new build, consider the many benefits of incorporating Villaboard into your project. Please contact our friendly team for any further questions.
