Cladding is the application of one material to cover or coat over another material, so as to provide a protective layer or skin.
Aluminium and Vinyl Cladding are very commonly used today when cladding houses and other buildings.
The use of cladding in building is not new, but over the ages the materials have improved significantly. The first instances of cladding can be seen everywhere, from the construction of the great pyramids of Egypt through to the Anglo Saxon houses and timber cladding of Germanic tribes.
From ancient times until the 19th Century, the cladding that was in-use was a hard material like wood or stone, or something that would not react to corrosion like copper, brass and bronze.
Cladding was applied to the building in various ways, though one of the most common methods was to place an exterior layer of individual bricks, clay tiles or shingles which were then held in place with mortar, wood or pegs.
Cladding protects your building’s structure from wind and rain, allowing your building to last longer. It is very effective in creating an insulation shield for your home, as well as being an attractive design solution.
Buildings are constantly being exposed to the elements and as a result, experience natural wear and tear of the structure and build.
With cladding, you can minimise much of the damage to your home and enjoy a range of other benefits including:
If you’re thinking of repainting your home, consider cladding instead. Cladding means you never have to repaint again!
