What Is PVC Cladding?
PVC cladding is a ‘skin’ for your home. It provides an extra layer of protection to your external walls, helping to uplift the thermal value of the building structure, which in turn can improve energy efficiency and running costs.
PVC cladding is available in an extensive range of colours – from traditional white to contemporary anthracite grey - and designs, allowing you to add an interesting aesthetic or a new lease of life to your home.
How To Correctly Install PVC Cladding
You will get the most out of your PVC external cladding by ensuring it is installed correctly – and for all installations, preparation is key:
New projects will require a sound substrate, good quality battens (suitable treated timber), insulation (if required) and a vapour membrane.
The replacement of existing exterior cladding requires the removal of old material, a checked and repaired substrate to ensure a sound location for battens, installation of good quality battens, insulation, and vapour membrane.
The installation processes for white and coloured PVC cladding are slightly different, and it’s good to know the basics before your get started:
