The world is evolving, and with it, so is architecture design. Not only is architecture looking more beautiful and striking, but it has also become more energy-efficient and sustainable in response to climate change.
One notable development is how building façades have improved thanks to wall cladding.
What is Wall Cladding?
Wall cladding is a layer of protective material added to the exterior of a building or home. It clads or covers the building, protecting it from the harsh environment. Wall cladding is also a design element, adding to the property’s curbside appeal.
While wall cladding is usually applied to the exterior, modern designs include application to interior walls. This adds insulation from noise and heat as well as contributing to the room’s aesthetic.
Benefits of Wall Cladding
Here’s why you should opt for wall cladding.
1. Improves the mechanical strength of the building.
Wall cladding adds durability and longevity to buildings.
2. Protects against the elements.
It serves as the first line of defense against the ravages of the environment. Resisting damage from wind, rain, heat, dust, and pollution.
3. Provides fire safety.
Cladding made of fire resistant material such as steel or aluminum protects the building from fire.
4. Resists corrosion.
As a form of finishing, wall cladding acts as a barrier between the building and the corrosive environment.
5. Provides waterproofing benefits.
Wall cladding reduces water absorption, which can weaken the structure.
6. Easy installation.
Wall cladding can be used to express whatever design you have in mind.
A recent study found that metal wall cladding was the most cost-efficient option available based on material efficiency and construction cost.
