Cladding not only makes your home more aesthetically pleasing but improves its overall energy performance and helps to limit the amount of maintenance that you will need to carry out.

The cladding on the exterior of the building helps to protect the structural walls underneath from exposure and the damaging effects of the outside environment. These include moisture, fluctuations in temperature as well as extremes of heat and cold. It also helps to insulate the home meaning that the house remains warm during the winter and cool during the summer.

Cladding comes in many forms such as stone and brick cladding which is fixed directly onto the wall and also timber cladding which is nailed onto battens that are placed onto the walls surface. The type of fixings used will differ depending on the type of cladding that you opt for. Choosing your cladding will depend on where you live, the type of building that you have and other environmental and budgetary factors.
