Buildings can be made to look better, provide thermal insulation, and be more resistant to the elements by using cladding, which includes layering one material over another to create a layer.

Cladding is available in a range of materials, including composites recently and materials like stone, wood, and vinyl in the past. Composite is created using a combination of wood and recycled plastic fibres.

Utilising composite cladding, an emerging trend, provides your office or home with a distinctive appearance. One of the most popular alternatives to painting your home is composite cladding. What benefits and drawbacks come with installing composite cladding to your house?

Customisable

For your home, composite cladding is available in a wide range of hues and designs. Any aesthetic requirements will be satisfied by this! This can be used for any specifications, thus it can be installed in any type of home.

Our composite cladding’s versatility is just one of its many benefits. It has a gorgeous wood grain finish that replicates wood siding and is available in a variety of hues. The realistic appearance of composite cladding without the hassles of real wood siding is what makes it so special.

Low Maintenance

The extraordinarily low maintenance required by composite cladding is one of its main selling advantages. Contrary to traditional timber cladding, composite wall cladding doesn’t need to be painted, stained, sealed, or sanded on a regular basis to increase its longevity.

In contrast to actual wood cladding, composite cladding does not rot, fracture, splinter, or swell. One of the numerous benefits of composite siding is that it does not require laborious cleaning; all that is required to preserve it is a quick wash-down with warm, soapy water. This is because the composite material provides adequate weather resistance without the need for painting, staining, or sealing. It doesn’t decay either.

Durability

The durability of this material is one of its key benefits. This material will not only preserve the inside walls and insulation of your home while remaining entirely waterproof, but it will also provide a strong protective covering (almost like a barrier) for the exterior walls of your home. In contrast to wood cladding, it has been created and intended to withstand all types of weather and will not readily deteriorate or sustain harm.

The boards’ resistance to decay, insect infestations, and warping, as well as their stain and scratch resistance, are attributes of the recycled composite cladding materials employed in its engineering. Select UV-resistant boards to get the most out of your composite cladding and avoid discolouration.

Disadvantages

The cost of installation is one drawback of composite cladding. Having said that, you will eventually gain from employing this material instead because of how simple and inexpensive it is to maintain.  Composite cladding is fade-resistant, though not completely so. The hot, humid British climate will cause your composite cladding to fade. Tannins, which are natural wood oils, are mixed with recycled composite materials during manufacture. The tannins will start to bleed or leach out from the boards in the presence of persistent rain.

As you could imagine, it is not as obvious as the composite cladding fades. Lighter colours will make the colour shift more obvious, though they will still appear slightly lighter. All composite materials experience extractive bleeding, a natural process, but it is not as obvious and the material still maintains its aesthetic appeal.
