Wall Cladding Installation Guide
Cladding is an extra layer applied to the outside of buildings to protect it from the elements and enhance the facade of residential and commercial structures. In many cases, cladding is used to provide a degree of thermal insulation and weather resistance to new and existing buildings as well as to improve their cosmetic appearance. Less frequently, cladding may be used for noise insulation. Many different types of materials can be used for cladding with the most common being wood, metal, brick, vinyl, and composite materials.
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.
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.
Adding cladding to your home is not necessarily an easy feat, which is why so many turn to professionals for installation. It can take quite a bit of planning and prep to ensure that your building's facade is cosmetically appealing and structurally sound. Before you get started you'll need to gather a series of tools including claw hammers, pliers, ladders and scaffolds, crowbars, tape measurer, utility knife, and a hacksaw. To add cladding to your home, first measure the area, complete sheathing, install insulation then begin on adding the cladding material of your choice.
