What is Vinyl Cladding?
What is Cladding?
When discussing what ‘vinyl cladding’ is, it is best to understand the definition of cladding in the first place. Cladding is defined as “a covering or coating on a structure or material”. In the case of the cladding that our company provides, we offer most types including vinyl cladding, PVC cladding, aluminium cladding and steel cladding. For the purpose of this article we are going to focus on what vinyl cladding and weatherboards are, the benefits of vinyl cladding and why vinyl cladding is the smartest choice for your home.
As mentioned, cladding is a “covering or coating”, an addition to a structural material; in this case a house. House cladding is traditionally done with timber weatherboards which need maintenance and can succumb to the harsh realities of Australian Weather. You can think of vinyl cladding as a protective barrier that improves upon timber weatherboards, providing insulation, sound dampening, water resistance and a lifetime of no maintenance.
Vinyl cladding is defined as a type of cladding made from PVC combined with other substances. Generally available in various profiles in a horizontal weatherboard, it also comes in a vertical weatherboard which is suitable for various applications. Vinyl cladding is also generally sold with foam insulation affixed to the back of the board, providing greater insulation benefits than other materials on the market.
