    If you use treated ply, which you will, do yourself a favour & use SS screws, they won't rust

    The batterns should have two grooves like barge boards do to prevent moisture wicking into the sheet edges thats what will stuff them. Black mould is about the only problem on the surface. A spray with wet and forget or other savlon based cleaner every couple of years will fix that. Stain or paint will ultimatly need redoing and can be quite costly. Let the timber weather silver grey and maintenance is minimal. High pressure waterblasting is a nono. There is a good BRANZ booklet on options for exterior timbers check it out at a library.

    The grooved ply may look good but it is weak and rough surfaces collect dirt
    18 mm C/D Tanalised Ply fixed with s/s screws every 200mm and covered with battens that are 60-75 wide would work - just stick a line of black rubber tape down under the joins - the same stuff they use with RAB board - obviously join at the studs
    Ensure s/s fixings are 316 not 304 where possible - some cheap s/s fixings from china are a bit shit

    If you go over 2.4m in height you will need a Z-flashing at the horizontal sheet join - you could get 2.7m sheets if that helps

    Plyguy on Tardme is best deal around here and does good stuff

    Stain and whatnot is personal taste but last time I built one of these I put MS grade sealant along the top of any horizontal battens to stop water pooling

    I would recommend vertical corner flashings

    Hope this helps

    Put tantalized ply on my pole house, which is 4 different levels. Never painted or stained it and it's as good as the day it was installed. That's 32 yrs ago, and yes I live in the bush as it were. Bloody good structural bracing and the house doesn't move, no cracks in the plaster or jib seals. Would definitely do again.

    Treated Plywood has like a resourcenal? glue line so the first laminate takes all the weathering and is water tight, the grooved ply is LOSP treated, this will leech out over time, good for sheds, but I think dodgy on houses, but if oil stained seems ok, my shed in Taupo, now about 12 yrs old and oil stained is holding up ok, gives great bracing strength. The Americans use it for flooring, we piss about with particle board, but it's cheap! Ply is a great costuction product IMHO
    Boom, cough,cough,cough

    Shadow clad comes in h3.1 losp and h3.2 and primed. 2.4 and 2.7 lengths.
    We have used plywood for flooring for some time, initially it was just construction ply then came products like plyfloor.
    I can't think of a product that doesn't require some maintenance, plywood is as good as any as long as you don't paint it dark

    I owned a town house with ply panel cladding. It was stained black. After a couple of years it started to delaminate on the northern aspects (sun). From then on I had to re-stain it every couple of years. A real pain.

    You could use that really thin epoxy that the boat guys use. Seals like anything (duh, boats) and is very very durable (people climb all over boats, right) and it ends up hard as fuck. Really soaks in too, it's not just a thin layer on the surface, we're talking a few millimeters in at least. I'll ask the old man what the brand name of the particular stuff he uses is
