Why Composite Cladding?
Composite timber cladding is a low maintenance, durable alternative to traditional fibre cement that is applied to the exterior of buildings for cosmetic or practical purposes. Often it is used in coastal settings because many types of composite timber cladding is U/V resistant. In other cases it can be used to protect a structure from the elements as well as to provide insulation from noise. Composite timber cladding is often selected due to its longevity, which makes it an attractive, cost-efficient cladding material for owners of both commercial and residential properties alike.
Composite cladding is warranted to last a minimum of 25 years on residential applications.
No, you cannot and shouldn’t need to paint composite cladding. It comes fully capped in a high grade durable polymer shield.
Our composite cladding is relatively maintenance free. A simple wipe down with non-abrasive household products will do! Being a fully capped composite product, it is naturally highly resistant to stains.
Some, but not all, membrane products can be used under cladding. Membranes can be used to help control moisture within the building. When used in this capacity, breather membranes are critical to a structure's makeup as they allow the building to "breathe." Other types of membranes work in conjunction with insulation to create a vapour barrier for condensation control. Poor moisture management can lead to mould problems. But the use of a membrane really depends on the type of cladding material and building structure. For example, fibre cement or metal sheet cladding, have a low moisture buffering capacity and are often constructed without a cavity behind the cladding.
