External cladding is a versatile method of weather proofing the walls of a building while providing a simple way to enhance its look. Cladding panels are made from a variety of material including timber, aluminium and uPVC.
UPVC is an excellent low-cost alternative to wood and aluminium because it can be manufactured with different finishes to imitate timber finished. Builders apply cladding where there is a need to create an external skin that serves as a decorative finish too. Cladding will work whether the wall finish is traditional brickwork, block or timber framing.
