Everything you love and cherish is most likely inside the four walls of your home. So protecting the outside of your home is essential to ensuring that what’s inside stays safe and comfortable. So if you own a fibro, weatherboard or gable ended home, finding the right type of cladding for your home will help you to do just that.
Why Do You Need Cladding?
Your home is exposed to a lot. From extreme heat, to heavy rain and low temperatures, it’s important that it can withstand whatever the Adelaide seasons decide to throw at it.
Cladding helps to provide an additional layer of protection to the walls of your home, and can also be used for gable end roofs. It is also a great way to update the look of your home.
Why PVC Cladding?
There are a number of advantages to using PVC Cladding.
Here are our top five reasons for choosing PVC cladding for the exterior of your home:
• Minimal Maintenance
Unlike some cladding materials, PVC requires very little maintenance. Wood is a commonly used material for cladding, however, this often rots and erodes over time, requiring constant repair and painting which can be time-consuming and costly. PVC cladding requires no maintenance, which means no painting.
• Weather Proof
PVC Cladding is able to withstand all types of weather and protects your home exterior from becoming weathered over time or with extreme conditions. It can also help to prevent wooden fixtures from rotting – saving you money in the long term. PVC is incredibly resistant and as a durable plastic, it has a high resistance to water and wind.
• Long Term Protection
PVC retains its original appearance for many years, and also doesn’t change structurally meaning that it’s durable and offers longevity. This can lower the amount you could potentially spend on re-doing cladding if you chose to go for a cheaper or weaker material. Our cladding material comes with a 50 year warranty.
• Additional Insulation
Our PVC cladding material has a polystyrene backing which has excellent insulating properties.
• Asbestos Protection
Worried about having exposed asbestos? Our cladding material can be installed straight over asbestos sheeting. The result is a significantly decreased risk of disruption and exposure to asbestos fibers.
• Visually Attractive
Whereas wood cladding can often look bulky or unkempt, PVC is easy to clean and maintain which means it can give a polished look to any property. You’ll also find that it can make tired looking homes appear more modern and sleek in their design instantly. Suitable for both traditional and modern homes, we find that cladding is a popular option, especially for holiday homes.
