Why Is Cladding Important?

Protects - Provides - Increases

Installing cladding on your home isn’t a new practice – historians have dated the use of cladding in Europe all the way back to the Dark Ages. By the 5th century, Anglo-Saxon homes in Britain were using timber cladding installed vertically on wooden or stone sills. Today we use a huge range of materials in our cladding, including wood, vinyl, brick, metal, and composite materials. But why do we clad our buildings, and what does this do for our homes? Let’s take a quick look at why cladding has been important enough to keep the practice for over 1500 years!

Protects from Weathering

Cladding, first and foremost, protects your home from weathering. This was most vital centuries ago when homes were built from weaker materials that we have today, and humanity did not have access to the huge range of technological advances that have seen buildings easy to build and protect, as we do today. But cladding today is just as important as it was then! Cladding your building protects it from the elements, prevents erosion and weathering, and makes your home resistant to drafts and leaks!

Provides Extra Insulation

Cladding not only adds an extra layer of protection against the elements, it also brings additional insulation to your building! Cladding insulates both heat and noise, keeping your home free from external auditory annoyances like traffic or construction while also sealing your home so it retains heat in winter and stays cools throughout summer.

Increases the Value of Your Home

Because of the reasons detailed above, cladding can add significant value to your home! Protection from weathering for your outer walls and additional protection from leaks is an attractive factor for any potential buyer! The extra insultation also helps keep energy bills low, giving you another reason to bump up your asking price! In addition to this, cladding comes in a huge variety of materials with a host of different styles, colours, and finishes, meaning you can vamp up the outer walls of your home and maximise the attractiveness of your exterior!
