What Are The Advantages Of Wall Cladding?
The term ‘cladding’ can be defined as components that are used to cover a structure’s exterior. It is a layer of material that is placed on a built structure or on any surface.
To put it simply, the purpose of wall cladding is to protect a building’s structure from harsh weather conditions and adverse weather elements. Still, it can have other unique benefits as well, such as insulation, and noise control and it can boost the aesthetic appeal of a building to a great extent.
There are many different materials used in cladding such as wood, plastic, imitation stone, or even metal. Metal cladding is usually in the form of galvanized steel or aluminium. There are so many cladding materials available in the market but Aluminium Composite Panels are the most commonly used cladding material in modern days. This is because due to plenty of reasons. They are durable, lightweight, easy to install, eco-friendly and are available in a wide variety of shades and textures.
Benefits of Exterior Wall Cladding
One of the primary advantages of exterior cladding is that it will protect the façade of the building from all sorts of external damage while demanding little to no maintenance. It does not need to be regularly checked and so applying an exterior cladding will save you your precious time and money.
When it comes to maintenance all it needs is a quick water wash and it will look as good as new. Out of many cladding materials that are currently available in the market, Aluminium Composite Panels or ACP sheets are widely used for exterior cladding as this material is acclaimed for durability, and versatility, as well as long-lasting.
Here are some of the top advantages of cladding –
- Low Maintenance – It provides durability and long-lasting resilience, protecting the façade of the structure from external weather elements while requiring almost no maintenance.
- Aesthetic Value – Claddings make a structure look aesthetically appealing. If we consider ACP sheets (since these are modern cladding materials and they are most commonly used), they are available in a wide number of shades and textures. Each type provides a unique look to a building façade.
- Superior Protection – The most basic purpose of cladding is to provide superior protection to the structure. It increases the mechanical strength of a structure, improves its resistance to cracking during increased temperature change, reduces water absorption, increases resistance to sunlight, and provides resistance to air and chemical pollution.
These are some of the reasons why the use of cladding materials has rapidly increased over the past few years. We, at Viva, are one of the leading ACP sheet manufacturers in India and our products have been trusted by the Architects, Builders, and Fabricator fraternity in India as well as overseas for over a couple of decades.
