The benefits of choosing composite cladding

The main benefit of composite cladding is the delivery of superior advantages over traditional solutions like timber and cement cladding. It offers versatility and can resemble popular timber favourites like aged wood, oak, walnut, and silver ash without the downsides and maintenance of timber. Cost-effective and easy to install, our composite cladding lets you instantly transform your exteriors and enhance your aesthetics while enjoying the benefits of a sustainable, durable product

Frequently Asked Questions

What is 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, like our shadowline cladding 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, like our castellation cladding. 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.

How long does composite cladding last?

Composite cladding is warranted to last a minimum of 25 years on residential applications.

Can I paint composite cladding?

No, you cannot and shouldn’t need to paint composite cladding. It comes fully capped in a high grade durable polymer shield.

How do you refresh (clean) composite cladding?

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.

Do I need a membrane under cladding?

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.

How long does composite cladding last?

There are inherent benefits to using composite cladding in home design. One such benefit is its inherent durability. Built to last, this building solution can withstand hot Australian summers and harsh winter conditions such as high winds and torrential rain.

With this in mind, this hardwearing and long-lasting cladding is also resistant to many conditions associated with exposure to the elements. Put simply, this means that composite cladding is resistant to warping, rotting, staining, UV discolouration and even splintering. 

Such durability also offers peace of mind. Firstly, you can trust that your cladding has the strength and durability needed to protect the exterior of your home. Secondly, there is a 25-year warranty associated with our composite cladding. 

Known for its longevity, composite cladding is an attractive proposition for everyone. Whether you’re looking to fit out residential or commercial properties in coastal or a variety of other environmental settings.

What is the lowest maintenance cladding?

When it comes to exterior cladding, there is a range of different options to choose from. These options include everything from concrete and stone wool fibres to plastic and even fibre cement. 

Additional options include wood cladding. However, it’s worth noting that this option will require increased maintenance when compared to other cladding options. This is largely because wood, when exposed to the elements, will age. This results in increased maintenance in the form of sanding, staining and painting regularly. 

It’s important to mention that plastic and fibre cement cladding come with their own maintenance requirements. For plastic cladding, regular cleaning is required due to the appearance of white marks. In terms of fibre cement, dirt is more easily absorbed. 

Equal parts durable and low maintenance, composite cladding is a great alternative for those looking to enjoy the aesthetic benefits without having to dedicate regular time to cleaning. In fact, due to composite cladding’s naturally stain-resistant properties, cleaning is as simple as wiping down the boards with non-abrasive household cleaners and cloths. 

Does composite cladding need an air gap?

Cladding can be used in commercial and residential builds and renovations for a variety of different reasons. Whether looking to increase aesthetics or to ensure an extra level of protection against the elements, leaving an air gap upon installation is crucial. 

Firstly, take the benefits of composite cladding. Able to resist cracking caused by everything from extreme heat to abrupt temperature changes, winds, and pollutants such as mould, composite cladding essentially makes the home weather resistant

Without an air gap, these elements- ranging from hot winds to rain- will have nowhere to escape to. They will penetrate the composite cladding and hit the home. Resulting in moisture being stuck between the cladding and the home.

With an air gap, there is essentially space for weather to fall and evaporate. This will ensure that no moisture or pollutants can be trapped between the home’s wall and the composite cladding facade. 

What do you use composite cladding for?

Composite cladding is used to give the exterior facade of homes a point of difference. Rather than having walls with one colour made out of one material, composite cladding essentially affords you the opportunity to create an external feature wall. 

Able to resemble popular timbers such as aged wood, oak, and walnut, composite cladding can help you achieve an earthy or modern look. Eco-friendly, our composite cladding is made from 95% recycled materials. Ensuring that your home design doesn’t come at the expense of the environment.

Aside from aesthetic purposes, the durable nature of composite cladding also means that it can be used to provide protection to your home. Able to deliver maximum performance in a range of different environments and weather conditions, composite cladding protects your home’s structure. 

This level of protection also affords a level of insulation from noise. This all works together to ensure that your home can be a real haven. Safe from the elements and the associated noise, no matter the conditions outside.
