Cladding is also known as siding. Construction has been experiencing a boom in demand. This is the process that covers exterior walls of a structure with other materials. These materials can be used for both aesthetic and practical purposes. You can use wood, plastic, metal, imitation stones, bricks, and other materials for cladding. A wood siding could be made with redwood, cedar and wood shingles. Plywood sheets can also be used. For metal siding, galvanized steel or aluminium can be used. You can see CSS Cladding for more information. Cladding is usually used for the following purposes:
The building should be kept in a controlled area
Protection of the building against various factors and conditions
Provide greater privacy to residents
Avoiding excess sound transmission
Thermal insulation of the building
Create an exterior façade that is easy to view
Preventing the spread and spread of fire in emergency situations
For your building, you will need to create an ‘airtight’ envelope
Many openings allow for easy access to daylight and ventilation.
These are the principal benefits offered by cladding buildings
Cladding has the lowest maintenance requirements than painting. External cladding only requires a weekly wash to preserve the walls’ newness. Extruded Aluminum is used in wall cladding and roofing, facades, roofs, canopies and walls. It is strong and durable. It can also protect the building’s exterior from weather elements, and it requires very little maintenance. Brick or stone veneer, however, is a one time investment but can last for years without any maintenance. Vinyl (OVC) cladding can be installed and removed quickly. Maintenance is minimal and requires only a power washer every two years.
Cladding serves a primary purpose: to provide protection for buildings. Cladding enhances structural strength, protects against sunlight, pollution and cracking, and reduces water absorption. Cladding also provides protection against strong winds, rain and molds. It protects your building from the harsh elements outside.
