The product is available in a range of ten contemporary colours, including a clear coating option. The JSC team can provide guidance on selecting the best coating for the building's style and aesthetic.

JSC Scumble® Colour Palette

JSC Scumble® is offered in ten different colours as well as a clear coating option. The colour range has been chosen with the New Zealand landscape and building styles in mind.

The colours you choose for your project can influence the whole look and feel of the home. The JSC Scumble colours range from lighter shades such as Frost and Ash, ideal for bright and coastal type homes to darker options such as Steel or Nightfall, which create a bold statement and work extremely well for a sophisticated look.

When choosing dark colours, careful consideration must be given to the site location, the board profile and board size for the best results.
