Why Should Vinyl Be Your Material Of Choice When It Comes To Cladding

Construction & Contractors Blog

If you consider your home your castle, you will want to do everything you can to protect it. Short of building a moat around it, complete with a drawbridge, one of the best things you can do is clad the exterior with a high-quality product. Why should you look at vinyl products to help you achieve this goal?

Understanding The Benefits

Vinyl cladding is now one of the most popular choices across Australia, as this material can provide several key benefits.

Quick Installation

To begin with, it's relatively quick to install and a lot less complicated than other options. For example, the pieces of cladding will come with holes predrilled so they can be introduced right away.

Many Options

Vinyl cladding also looks great and is available in a wide variety of different types. You can choose cladding that matches the look and feel of your property by selecting profiles, textures or colours.

Extra Features

In addition, you can choose products that have the additional thermal capacity to help insulate and lower your energy bills. Some products are particularly resistant to UV, which is great if you live in a hot and dry part of the country.

Low Maintenance

You won't need to worry too much about ongoing maintenance if you install vinyl cladding. It's pretty easy to clean, and you can do so with household soap and a garden hose. These panels are resistant to water and will retain their colour quite well. So you won't have to bother with staining, mould accumulation or peeling paint any time soon.

Highly Resistant

High-quality vinyl cladding has been carefully engineered to withstand the harshest weather conditions. It puts up with hailstorm damage and the type of wind you associate with a strong thunderstorm. In other words, you'll be able to protect your exterior walls for many years in the future whenever you choose this option.


Perhaps best of all, vinyl cladding tends to be one of the more economical cladding options on the market. Even when considering the cost of labour and materials, it's likely to cost you far less than wood, fibre cement or brick cladding.

Calling A Contractor

Now that you can see the benefits of vinyl cladding, you want to assess your options. Some people may want to DIY, but for the best results, call your local contractor. They'll be delighted to take your details and provide you with a quote.

How I Constructed My New Home

Hello and welcome to my construction blog. My name is David and I would like to tell you about the process of designing and building a new home from the ground up. I had always dreamed of building my own home and last year, that dream became a reality. I had been saving money for many years so I could afford to buy the materials and employ the contractors needed to construct my home. I learnt so much during the process, I decided to start this blog. It was a wonderful day when the final piece of my home was put into place and I am now very happy.
