Your home’s exterior suffers a lot of damage from the varying weather conditions and deteriorates prematurely if left to its own devices. Nobody wants to stare at an old dilapidated façade and surely no one wants to live in a home like that, too. To avoid this, a lot of homeowners find ways to safeguard the exterior of their homes against the harsh elements. Some people check out the many different shade options while others turn to paint and rendering, which may lead to other maintenance issues as well. Smart homeowners will find a way to turn the problematic facade of their home into a focal point by improving the design of their exterior walls using cladding products.

What is cladding?

Cladding involves building a covering on an existing material for protection. There are several options to choose from for your cladding project. Just be careful when choosing because the wrong type of material does not only create more work but also mean wasting time and money. Capped timber cladding is one of the top choices. If you choose composite cladding for your home, you will get the benefits of that wood and plastic have to offer.

Before we go into that, let us first discuss the various drawbacks of using traditional wood. Natural timber is prone to rotting, warping, twisting, and it needs regular maintenance. Hardwood, for instance, can be very expensive and its prices fluctuate rapidly as well. Since wood needs to be knot free, which represents points of weakness, manufacturing this material involves discarding some of its parts, which may not be a very sustainable practice. Apart from that, hold stocks of traditional timber is expensive and supplies cannot easily be transferred for use on other projects.

Since it is made of plastic, it can take on whatever the environment has to offer like weathering and decay, which is the most common threats faced by any home. If there is no decay then there are no weakened structures that would require maintenance. Meanwhile, its wooden aspect means composite timber cladding is stiffer and is resistant to crushing. It is not prone to warping or splintering and its color is not susceptible to fading. What does this mean? It means your house will have a beautiful façade for a long time thanks to its durable external timber cladding, which will protect it for several years to come.

Composite wood also does not require maintenance to retain its stunning visual appeal. There is no need for stain or paint application. In case your cladding gets muddy, all you need to clean it is water and soap. You may even use a high-pressure cleaner, a machine that can also be used to clean your driveway and deck.

Apart from all these benefits, you will delight in the fact that composite timber cladding panels are environmentally friendly. It is made of recycled materials that will last for a very long time. Going for composite timber cladding means you will get to reduce your carbon footprint, help reduce the materials that otherwise could have ended up in a landfill, and not using a lot of resources since it does not need any replacement for a long time.

At first, you might think that composite wood is a tad expensive. However, if you check it out more extensively, you will soon find out that since it is a maintenance-free product, it is actually good investment. There is no doubt that you will realize the high value of composite timber cladding once you think about the extra expenses, time, and work associated with traditional timber.
