Plastic wood cladding is becoming very popular because of the beauty it adds to a home. Installing wood-plastic composite will also reinforce the wall of your home and assist in preventing structural damage.
Composite cladding provides a durable and long-lasting solution for property owners who want to insulate their homes and increase their weather resistance. Property owners can use plastic wood cladding anywhere in their homes or outbuildings. You can install it on the exterior wall, or you can use it for aesthetics only by installing it in your home interior or outbuildings.
What Is Composite Cladding?
Like every cladding material, composite cladding is an exterior wall covering. Property owners install cladding to protect their homes from damage. The cladding material is installed on a wall to form a layer of protection over its surface, preventing weathering from affecting the covered area. Weathering can lead to cracking on exterior walls due to moisture. Many homeowners install cladding purely for aesthetic appeal, changing the appearance of the exterior wall.
Composite material is produced from two or more constituent materials. These are wood and plastic. Combining the two materials together improves the material’s strength and durability. This is why composite cladding is low maintenance, has a long lifespan and is cost-effective.
What Are the Benefits of Using Plastic Wood Cladding?
Composite Cladding Is Easy to Maintain
Composite cladding is easy to maintain. As cladding is often installed with many technicalities, access is limited. This makes extensive maintenance not only difficult but, at times, impossible.
One of the great benefits of composite cladding is that it requires regular maintenance but only brushing away dirt and debris, using warm soaping water and a soft bristle brush to brush over the cladding and rinsing with a hose. This is minimal when you compare it with wood, which requires cleaning, sanding, oiling, staining and/or painting.
Maintaining your cladding is very important for the cladding’s longevity. Therefore, making sure it’s fitted in a position where you are able to clean composite cladding safely is recommended.
Plastic Wood Cladding Is Attractive
The aim of creating cladding is to protect your wall from weather, but you can use composite cladding to add aesthetics to your property. That is why engineers make composite cladding in different colours and surface finishes.
Due to the range of colours and finishes, composite cladding can improve the overall look of your home, shed, garden room, any exterior wall and even internal. Whether you are looking for a traditional or modern look, composite cladding can provide both counts.
Plastic Wood Cladding Is Long-lasting
Composite is a long-lasting cladding material that will add value and protection to your home. Property owners will use their wood-plastic cladding for up to 25 years with little maintenance. This makes composite cladding cost-effective in the long term.
Using Wood-plastic Cladding
There are several places property developers can use plastic wood cladding. You can use it in your home to reinforce the wall and add aesthetics. You can use wood plastic in a commercial building to change the aesthetic. The use of composite cladding on public buildings is also becoming popular today.
Use Composite Cladding on Your Home Wall
Composite cladding protects your home wall from weather and adds beauty to it. Property owners can use plastic wood cladding to insulate their property and reinforce their walls to prevent structural damage.
Use Composite Cladding on Commercial Property
Aside from installing plastic wood cladding on your home wall, you can install it on a commercial property. It will protect your commercial property from damage and add aesthetics. When planning for a commercial property, it is always recommended to check the fire rating required. As a guide, any cladding installed above 18M has to be Fired A.
Use Composite Cladding on Public Buildings
Government buildings and other public buildings can use composite cladding to protect the wall and add aesthetics. Again, ensuring that the fire rating is in line with the legal and safety guidelines of the project.
Composite cladding can be used on a range of buildings, whether that’s your home, shed, garden room or commercial or public buildings. Composite cladding will protect the exterior wall and a beautiful aesthetic with its range of colours and surface textures.
