Modern cladding does not detract from the appearance of a building, often adding an aesthetically pleasing appeal. Yet beyond the look exterior cladding panels add an additional layer of protection to the underlying building materials. This helps prevent the materials being damaged by wear and tear from the stress of varied weather conditions experienced in this country. Cladding installation plays a major part in a new build or refurbishment of a commercial unit, providing a more durable property which is not so exposed to weather elements resulting in structural problems and damp issues inside.
Options for exterior cladding when refurbishing include stripping old sheets and replacing them with new or over cladding. The benefits of both systems include improving the insulation of the building and improving the aesthetic look. Stripping sheets can be used to remove and replace old asbestos sheets. Over cladding means less disruption for your business as the existing cladding does not need to be removed allowing for the property to remain open and functional.
Alternatively you could opt for a twin skin external cladding which consists of two layers of profiled metal with insulation quilt packed between. This is a versatile system where the spacer system separating the metal layers can be adjusted to achieve the level of insulation required. Cost effective it has become widely used by cladding installers and the range of available colours also allows a degree of creativity in design.
Traditional methods to protect buildings from the elements have used sealants, but wear and tear over time degrades these materials allowing water and moisture to penetrate and damage the underlying materials. With a rainscreen system the moisture that penetrates is either evaporated or drains down the back of the cladding. Once installed it is low maintenance making it ideal for consideration for industrial buildings.
Insulated panels offer a single component installation allowing for a faster on-site job. An easy to fit, low maintenance option they offer a superior thermal performance. A properly insulated building is a more energy efficient building, meaning lower utility costs overall and an improved carbon footprint for your company.
Wall cladding panels are an excellent solution for a new build, maintenance or refurbishment project. The different methods, materials and colours allow for complete flexibility in design, giving you complete control over the final look of the outside of your commercial properties.
Once installed they require low maintenance regardless of whether the material consists of metal sheeting or PVC cladding. Constructed from easy to fit but strong polyvinyl chloride, PVC cladding only needs a power wash every couple of years as maintenance.
When put together the additional protection benefits, the additional insulation benefits and the aesthetically pleasing nature of wall cladding panels can add value to a commercial property. It can markedly change the look of a dreary building and is why there is such a selection of colours and materials to select from when considering exterior cladding. It is a consideration to be made that wall cladding panels can increase the value of your property if you are thinking of selling.
