What You Should Know About Aluminium Cladding Panels

Homeowners have reached a stage where traditional exterior painting doesn’t suffice. It’s boring and requires maintenance after a short period, not to mention unplanned damage repairs from the elements. Ultimately, cladding adds a level of sophistication and practicality to your exterior. 

  • It provides heat insulation. Due to the number of layers of the material, it provides thermal insulation. This feature is beneficial to the environment. Furthermore, because it’s retaining the heat in the home, your energy bills are reduced as you do not need an air conditioner or heater to regulate the temperature. Cladding also absorbs sound and therefore reduces the noise that filters into the home. 
  • It’s highly durable. Exterior cladding that’s installed by professionals can withstand all outdoor elements. It stands firm in the face of extreme rain, wind, and sun. Due to the protective oxide coating, aluminium sheet cladding won’t rust and corrode due to overexposure to moisture. It has the potential to last for decades. 
  • The weight. Aluminium weighs a third less than steel and is one of the easiest metals to shape and bend. Architects love working with it to realise their vision for a building as handling the material during construction is less cumbersome.   

Aluminium is entirely recyclable, which means you are contributing to saving the environment if you reuse this material.

Key Questions to Ask Homeshield Patios and Decks About Aluminium Cladding Designs

Cladding is a terrific addition to any property. It adds significant value by offering durability as well as an element of beauty. However, there are a few questions to ask your installer before the process begins. 

  • What are the building requirements of the property? You must consider the structural aspects of your building when installing cladding. Even though it’s an extra layer to the exterior, some sheet cladding can add to the aesthetics of the building. Installation requirements for bracing cladding can affect waterproofing, condensation, ventilation and drainage. It is advisable to consult a professional to determine the constraints.
  • What is the best system for my structure? Cladding is available in various materials.  We supply and install both aluminium or vinyl house cladding and we can discuss with you the features and benefits of both systems.
  • Is the cladding fire resistant? The fire performance of the cladding is dependent on the installation method. Manufacturers design and test materials based on installation. The contractor must follow the guidelines to ensure the cladding reaches its maximum potential. Using material that’s not preferred by the manufacturer means your building might not meet the fire resistant requirements.
