Fibro - Fibre cement sheeting
Installing fibro sheeting is pretty much an easy task.
Tools required - Fibro cutters and a hammer
Fixings normally fibre cement nails.
Its a good idea to have the joins in the fibro connected with
a luminex strip. these white 4.5mm thick strips can be found at most hardwares. The strip allows the edge to be joined without the need of a timber stud or joists being at the edge of the board to connect to. The timber members do not have to be in line with the edges of the board.
Nailing spacings along the fibro are to be at 300mm to 350mm apart.
Removal of existing fibro sheeting
Its a good idea to make sure your fibro is not asbestos before removing sheeting.
Any house or building built pre 90's could have asbestos related material. Asbestos was slowly phased out from 1967 - 1989 the most hazardous being the first to be phased out.
if you are not sure of the material and its composites you should contact a licensed asbestos removalist to check it, or have it lab tested!
These days some fibro products have the words (Asbestos free) written on the backs of the boards.
