The benefits of choosing our Composite Cladding Boards include having a low-maintenance exterior solution that is rot, splinter and warp-resistant. With reduced overall maintenance costs when compared to natural timber, our Composite Boards also do not require staining, painting or treating to keep them looking at their best. Manufactured from 60% recycled hardwood fibres and 40% recycled plastic, Composite Wall Cladding is environmentally-friendly and long-lasting.
Composite Cladding Boards are 3.6-metre in length. Like our Composite Decking and Composite Fencing they're available in a choice of eight contemporary colours. Pick between two finishes; our Original Boards have a smooth, plain surface and our Woodgrain Boards a high-quality timber aesthetic. With a simple tongue-and-groove connection, our Composite Wall Cladding can be easily installed either vertically or horizontally, to transform any exterior building project.
What's the difference between composite cladding and wood cladding?
Cladco Composite Wall Cladding Boards are a durable alternative to wood cladding. Their environmentally friendly wood/plastic composition makes for a material that is rot and warp resistant, low-maintenance and long-lasting in comparison to natural wood.
Is composite cladding cheaper than wood cladding?
Composite cladding can be more expensive than wood cladding initially, due to the higher cost of the materials and manufacturing process. This however works out as less expensive in the long run as composite is stronger, longer-lasting and has lower maintenance needs than wood or timber.
How long does composite cladding last?
Depending on where you live and where your composite boards have been installed can affect how long the cladding will last. The wood/plastic composition of the material used to manufacture the boards is a more durable alternative to timber and will last longer in areas that are not exposed to harsh weather conditions.
Is composite cladding waterproof?
Our Composite Cladding Boards have a low water absorption rate when compared with real wood cladding. The 40% plastic elements within the Composite Boards are mixed with hardwood fibres during the extrusion process to prevent moisture from absorbing into the Boards.
Does composite cladding have any disadvantages?
One of the disadvantages of composite wall cladding is that it can be expensive to install - especially if hiring a professional to do this for you. Having said this, in the long run, the benefits of using composite far outweigh this due to its low-maintenance and long-lasting properties.
How do you attach composite cladding?
Composite Cladding can be installed both horizontally and vertically onto a simple substructure made up of battens. The Boards fit together using a tongue and groove technique. A selection of Trims can be used for a seamless finish around edges and corners. Take a look at our Installation Guide for more information.
Does composite cladding need a membrane under it?
Composite cladding boards are naturally very resistant to water exposure/weather damage and so there is a relatively low chance of water penetrating through the cladding and damaging the wall behind. If however, you live in an environment where there is high wind and rainfall, a good quality membrane installed beneath your boards will help to protect your home.
