A great way to appreciate the role of exterior wall cladding is by looking at it as a layer of extra protection and skin to a building’s exterior. Apart from aesthetic appeal, exterior wall cladding also provides several benefits including thermal insulation and weather resistance. This helps in improving the overall appearance, function, and life of a building. When it comes to cladding, a wide range of materials are used including brick, wood, vinyl, metal, and composite material. Greenlam Clads offers superior quality exterior wall cladding for a host of applications. Here is a look at what sets Greenlam cladding apart from other cladding options. Let’s find out.
Cladding must possess certain desirable characteristics such as durability, resistance to the elements, and aesthetic appeal.
