What is external cladding?

Cladding refers to the material used to cover the exterior of a property and is either attached to the walls or fixed to supporting battens. External cladding is used to protect the materials used for exterior walls such as brick, stone and timber. Cladding is practical, as it safeguards your property, but in recent years it has also been used for aesthetic reasons.

What is the cladding material?

There is a broad range of external cladding materials on offer. Here’s our handy guide if you need a little inspiration…

Composite External Cladding

Composite external cladding combines wood and plastic to create high-quality external cladding. Composite cladding is made from FSC-accredited wood fibres and recycled plastic, which makes it an environmentally friendly alternative to timber or plastic.

What are the benefits of composite cladding?

UV and corrosion-resistant.

Hardwearing and won’t rot, warp or stain easily.

PVC External Cladding

PVC external cladding is made from polyvinyl chloride. This type of cladding is a lightweight and high-quality option favoured by those looking for modern, coloured wall cladding solutions. Furthermore, PVC cladding boasts a tongue and groove specification which is easy to install.
