Adding Cladding to the entire or part of your house, garden studio, or garage is a fantastic way to spruce up or transform your home. This fantastic garden studio has been Cladded in Cladco Composite Teak Wall Cladding Boards.
For a stylishly clad home, ensure your Wall Cladding is installed in an attractive colour (Cladco Composite Cladding Boards are available in eight stylish colours) which either complements or contrasts any additional colours within the design. While also making sure the Cladded walls are accessorised with windows, plants or Fascia Boards when possible.
The vertical design of the Boards creates an attractive, modern build. The Teak Cladding contrasts perfectly with the white flagstones and the darker features, which draws the eye.
What is Wall Cladding?
Cladding is a term that widely refers to the external layers of a building. Nowadays, Cladding often comes in pre-made panels, boards or tiles, which are easily fixed together.
Traditionally, houses in the UK were built with solid walls, reaching undisturbed from the base of the building to the rafters, in materials found naturally in the area, such as timber, stone or clay. In addition to this, British homes are designed to retain heat and keep the wind and rain out; the thick walls helped aid this.
However, in the 20th Century, the way we built houses changed. Instead of one thick wall making up the exterior of a building, walls are now constructed using an inner and an outer layer, with cavities and gaps between the two rather than the two solid throughout.
The outer area of the wall, otherwise known as the Cladding, no longer needed to provide any load-bearing duties, with the sole purpose to protect and weatherproof the building. As a result, the exterior outer Wall Cladding has since evolved into the lightweight, attractive Cladding we know today, which is used for aesthetic more than protection on modern builds.

Why install Cladco Composite Wall Cladding vertically?
Cladco Composite Wall Cladding can be installed either vertically or horizontally, there are no additional benefits for installing in either way, it is purely down to the customers personal preference and aesthetic.
For most homeowners, adding Cladding is a way of transforming and redecorating the exterior of their home, and they may well have specific spaces in mind they want the Wall Cladding.
Installing your Cladding Boards in a vertical design gives your home a unique and contemporary appearance while also giving the illusion that your home is taller/bigger than it is.
Once you have a suitable supporting subframe in place, with correct Battens and spacing between them, Cladding can be fitted, to a degree wherever you want it on your home. If you want the Cladding to cover the entire house, across a dorma window, or around the edges of doors and windows. Find out how to create a suitable substructure and how to clad your home here.
