This is a must have for anyone installing weatherboards. We were stunned at how much time they saved

One of the most helpful tools we have seen in years. CladMate is a true game changer
CladMate works like a dream. You can do the job solo, or if you have a crew, it will double your output.

We could not believe how easy this made the installation of weatherboards. These are indispensable.

One of the best tools we have come across in ages. Even on a small job these will pay for themselves.

The accuracy and speed that CladMate's deliver on the job is second to none. It's like having another person with you.
At approximately one-third of your weatherboards overall length from either end, place each CladMate’s blade under the bottom edge of the weatherboard and slide upward.
Lift the handle for a snug fit. Don’t over tighten, as it can cause the clamp to pull away from the wall.
Carefully lower your next weatherboard into CladMate’s slots.
Fix weatherboard as per manufacturer’s recommendations. Remove both CladMates and repeat steps 1 through 4 as you work upward to the top of the wall.

Huge time saver! My helper was able to install weatherboards on a scaffold by himself easier than if 2 people were up on the scaffold doing it together. I was able to stay on the ground and cut siding the entire job. My second man was free to help carry the heavy weatherboards to the cut bench and keep the job site clean. It was like purchasing a third helper for 1/100th of the price.

So good, so worth it. It's like having 4 hands. Going up a ladder with a weatherboard, a nailer, and a level, you still do not need another person to help you with this. If you are working alone, I actually am not sure how you clad the house without these. I'm sure you would have to fabricate something similar. Even working with another person, I found these to be amazing...

Being a professional Carpenter I highly recommend these for production weatherboards. They really do make a difference and speed things up. I'd say the company's estimate of saving half the time during labor is conservative, and your accuracy is 100% with these clamps.
