Why you should use aluminium cladding for your home
From the days of the log cabin, all homeowners have looked at ways to shelter their homes from the elements as well as look good. In colonial times houses were sealed with mud, moss, or stones to protect the inhabitants, which then changed to weatherboards and eventually to cladding. Aluminium cladding has fast become a great option for stylishly covering your home.
Available in horizontal and vertical options and coming in a huge range of powder-coated colours, giving your home a facelift with aluminium cladding will change the way your home looks as well as adding a certain level of style.
Here are five reasons why you should use aluminium cladding for your home: –
Aluminium cladding is a durable and long-lasting material
Due to aluminium being a strong metal, the cladding will not easily get damaged or broken. It is also resistant to water and non-corrosive, so it won’t need many repairs. The material lasts for many years without fading or discolouring. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about your home looking old as time passes.
Due to aluminium’s non-corrosive properties once it is powder-coated in your choice of colour there is very little maintenance required to keep it looking great. If you are like most people then one of your least favourite jobs will be painting, with aluminium cladding you won’t have to paint the outside of your house again. If you find dirt and grime building up on the aluminium cladding of your house, just a quick wash with some soapy water and a brush will do the job.
Ease of use
Aluminium cladding is a strong but lightweight product that is very easy to lift and manoeuvre. This opens a raft of possibilities for upgrade projects if you are inclined.
So much to choose from
With six different styles to choose from and a huge range of colours, there is an aluminium cladding option just waiting to spruce up your home. Whether you are looking for a horizontal or vertical cladding, Ullrich Aluminium’s Ulltraclad range has got your house covered.
Aluminium is a great value for money when giving your home a makeover
The range, ease of use, and low maintenance nature of aluminium cladding make it a great way to take your house to the next level and to be the talk of your neighbourhood.
