Cladding is a facing material that is either fixed directly to the wall or nailed on to timber battens. Its purpose is to protect the wall beneath and add to the aesthetic appeal of the building. Well designed and properly installed cladding can also help to maximise thermal performance and enable a house to blend with its surroundings. From timber cladding to render, brick slips to rainscreens, there are lots of cladding options to choose from.
