These days the construction industry has seen rising demands in cladding, also known as siding. This is a process that involves coating the external walls of construction with other materials that serve various aesthetic as well as functional purposes.

The various materials that can be used in cladding include wood, plastic (vinyl), metal, or imitation stones and bricks. You can also look for cladding in central coast via various other online sources.

The application of wood siding may involve the use of redwood, cedar, wood shingles, or plywood sheets, while the application of metal siding can make use of galvanized steel or aluminum.

Lower Maintenance

As compared to painting, the most prominent advantage offered by cladding is the minimal requirement of maintenance. What external cladding mostly requires in terms of maintenance is nothing more than a regular wash to maintain the newness of the walls.

For instance, extruded aluminum is used in cladding column covers, roofs, canopies, facades, and walls, and offers high durability and resilience. It also offers protection to the building's surface from external elements, while requiring minimal maintenance.

Brick or stone veneer cladding, on the other hand, poses a one-time investment but is likely to last for years without the requirement of any maintenance. Vinyl (OVC) cladding is very easy to install and replace and the maintenance that it requires involves only power wash every two years or so.
