    Whats the average cost to Clad a medium sized 60's fibro house ?
    Does it look better ?

    Is there any benefit other than looks?

    Don't know about cost but it looks heaps better and also works as insulation.

    As wattle said insulation, both thermal and acoustic.

    Typically, lower maintenance ie doesnt need painting every few years

    Cheapest way is to clad it in colorbond horizontally. Talk to a roof plumber. No painting.

    Asbestos removal - check out if there's any incentives.

    The only problem will be if all the internal is the same,then you would have to reset the entire building,then the roof could be the old super 66 roof,add it all up then it would be better to bring in a D9 level the place ,and start again,the value is always in the land what's above can be gone within 48 hours..imho..

    Here is a example .. Before and after shots ... Looks great ..whether its a good investment for say a Country IP is another thing though.

    I'd be listening to willair. If it is asbestos inside too, plus a super6 roof, then you are adding cladding that simply is hiding a big problem. What is your long term plan for the place? Knock down one day? If so, then I'd leave it alone.
