The Advantages of Cladding a House
In domestic roofing, cladding is most often fitted around chimneys, windows and doors – basically the areas that are most vulnerable to draughts and leaks. And these days, more and more people are turning to cladding as an effective means of protecting their houses, garages, outhouses extensions and offices.
So, let’s have a look at some of the advantages of cladding your house or outbuilding:
- Low Maintainance. Many of the sheeting materials used in cladding, such as plastic, metal and fibreglass, are incredibly low maintenance, particularly when compared with timber and old brick. All it really takes is a quick washdown to have cladding looking its best again.
- Kerb Appeal. Another reason homeowners often choose to clad their properties is due to the increased aesthetic value it adds to the building. Exterior cladding comes in all sorts of colours and materials to suit any property style, and choosing the right one can boost the kerb appeal of your home.
- Increased Insulation. Cladding is also a great insulator for properties. That extra layer of material wrapped around the original structure of the building helps to lock in the heat, helping to reduce energy usage and saving you money on heating bills.
- Structural Protection. Over time, the structure and appearance of any building will start to degrade, which is why many people choose to take advantage of cladding their properties. Cladding provides a great deal of protection against the elements, dirt and general pollution, and prevents water ingress that can lead to damp and mould issues.
