Why Should You Invest WPC Cladding?

What is Composite Cladding?

Composite cladding, a synthetic substitute to wood, is a material that is similar to wood in appearance but has a more stable and consistent outcome than wood. 

Combining recycled plastics with wood offcuts makes composite wall cladding an eco-friendly alternative. Because of its durability and low-maintenance cost, it requires little care to keep the appearance looking new. Compared with composite wood cladding, wood cladding with different wood dyes and treatments is beneficial for producing facades, yet they may develop an uneven grey look over time. However, the composite wall cladding assures that the finish will appear as excellent as the installation date for the next few years. 

Why Should You Invest Composite Cladding?

It’s been well known that composite cladding has great benefits compared with wood, such as lower absorption rate, not being easy to warp in hot or wet weather, not susceptible to pests like termites. Besides the aspects we mention above, what real benefits can composite wood cladding bring to you, and why should you invest in composite cladding? 

  • Resist transferring wind and impact loads 

Cladding refers to components mounted to a building’s structure to form a non-load-bearing exterior. Composite wall cladding is commonly attached to the building’s structures and usually does not increase stability but can play an important role in transmitting wind and impact loads.

Wind loading may have a negative and positive pressure impact on a building’s surface. However, the composite wood cladding must have enough inherent strength to withstand the loading and the cladding’s attachment to the building. WPC exterior wall cladding doesn’t need to be self-supporting; all it needs to do is keep the weather out. 

  • Provide better internal insulation

The composite wall cladding’s thickness provides better internal insulation of the building, both in terms of heat and exterior noise. The additional layer on the building will assist in keeping temperatures throughout the year, eventually leading to lower electricity expenses. 

Cladding can also be used to prevent moisture from entering the structure of a building from external sources such as snow and rain. The current building materials may crack due to weather changes, but composite wood cladding will act as a shell to safeguard the construction beneath. 

When properly designed and installed, WPC cladding can provide extra durability, improve the building’s aesthetic look by transforming the least noticeable exterior areas, reduce the leakage of air, enhance internal temperature management, reduce electricity expenses, and minimize maintenance. 

Where Can You Use Composite Cladding?

It’s worth considering WPC cladding for every project, regardless of size or location. Applications include commercial, residential, modular, industrial, etc. WPC exterior wall cladding is simple to install and maintain. With different shades of WPC cladding to choose from, it’s easy to find the one that matches the existing structures on your property – composite is ideal for both small projects like garden gyms, extensions, and offices, as well as larger projects like residential and commercial developments. View what composite cladding Wallong can provide.
