7 Types of Cladding

  1. 1. 7 Types of Cladding There are more cladding types than you might think!
  2. 2. What is cladding? • Cladding is an exterior finishing system meant to protect the underlying structure (like a home) and provide an aesthetically appealing finish. • How long it lasts depends on the type of cladding, but most cladding systems are quite durable and last up to 50 years.
  3. 3. 1. Stone cladding • Stone cladding is comprised of thin layers of natural or simulated stone (simulated stone is much cheaper than real stone) on the exterior of homes or buildings. Homes with stone cladding tend to look more elegant, natural, and earthy.
  4. 4. 2. Timber cladding • Timber cladding comes in horizontal boards, shingles, or panels. It’s a popular choice for many homeowners because the look of real timber on homes is rustic, warm, and inviting. It also is a good natural insulator, and it’s an environmentally friendly cladding choice.
  5. 5. 3. Weatherboard cladding • Weatherboards are usually made from reconstituted hardwood or timber that can be painted or stained however you like. They can be fixed to all kinds of underlying material like fiber cement or brick. However, they may require ongoing maintenance if you want them to stay in good condition.
  6. 6. 4. Fiber cement cladding • This particular type of cladding is made by compressing sand, cement, and cellular fiber into sheets. Although it looks like wood, it is lighter and easier to install than wood. It also requires less maintenance.
  7. 7. 5. Brick cladding • You can create various looks and patterns by using different colored bricks in a brick cladding system. Bricks are also easy to work with, lightweight, and a good insulator. They also don’t need much maintenance.
  8. 8. 6. Vinyl cladding • Vinyl cladding comes in many colors and it looks great on all kinds of homes. It’s recyclable, economical, and uses fewer resources when it’s being manufactured. It also requires little maintenance, and you can add insulation to it pretty easily.
  9. 9. 7. Metal cladding • Metal cladding can give your home a sleek, modern look, and it comes in a range of colors to suit your home. Steel and aluminum are popular metal choices for metal cladding systems. You can count on your metal cladding system to be strong, durable, lightweight, and long lasting.
