Why Use External Cladding?

External Cladding Brisbane

 Looking to transform the exterior of your home or build a gorgeous structure from scratch? Fortunately, painting isn’t the only option to add style, class and functionality. External Cladding is the way to go!

External cladding is not a new trend, architects and builders have been using this technique for some time. Not only is cladding one of the biggest influencers on the appearance of a building, but also protects structures from external elements such as moisture, UV rays and debris.

Due to a number of fantastic benefits, external timber cladding makes a fantastic choice and solution for architect and designers alike.

What is External Cladding?

External Cladding Brisbane

Cladding is an exterior finishing technique, much like a skin. In construction, external cladding is the application of timber over a structure to provide a layer of insulation, weather protection, aesthetic improvements as well as improves interior lighting and acoustics. It is non loadbearing, thus it provides no structural function and is supported by the building. Cladding comes in a wide range of materials including wood, metal, stone and composite materials. 

External cladding has a multitude of different purposes and benefits. This includes protection from the effects of the sun, rain and wind. Additionally, cladding can influence the value, price and safety of a building. Effective cladding systems are a wise investment for years to come.

External Cladding:
The Benefits?

Apart from its aesthetic benefits, utilising external cladding in your construction projects comes with a myriad of benefits

Noise Insulation: There is nothing worse than excess noise from neighbouring areas and vice versa. Cladding is designed with materials of varying levels of density that absorbs sound waves and noise.

Heat Insulation: Heat insulation is ideal for those who are eco-conscious or wish to reduce their heating and cooling costs. External cladding will effectively trap heat to provide a warmer environment during the winter months.

Appearance: External cladding allows you to decide on how you would like the exterior of your structure to look. Depending on the type of wood and design you choose, cladding provides a stylish finish and aesthetic to any structure.

Low Maintenance: Arguably the most prominent benefit, timber cladding requires little maintenance compared to painting. Most cladding requires nothing more than a regular wash to maintain aesthetic appeal and oiling to maintain weather resistance.

With consistent maintenance and care your external cladding will stand the test of time!
