Need Timber Cladding for your Home?
When you choose to build your dream home, you get the advantage of having exactly what you want. However, there are things that you should consider, before you start the build, such as your budget, the right location, design of your home, choosing the right building contractor and choosing the right materials. If your building in the Central Coast or Sydney, you might also be thinking about timber wall frames and roof trusses for the structure of your home.
When it comes to surface finishes, timber cladding can add to the appearance of your build and provide added protection to it. Cladding refers to sections of timber panels that are attached to the primary structure of your home, to form the external surface. From a technical point of view, cladding provides protection from moisture and penetration of air to the walls.
Timber cladding is environmentally friendly, which makes it a popular method, among Australian builders, architects and construction contractors. If you are in need of timber cladding, Heyden Frame and Truss is just a phone call away. We are a leading provider of the highest quality timber cladding solutions in the Sydney, Central Coast and Newcastle areas and we are proud of our 30 years’ experience in the industry.

Plywood sheet cladding
Plywood is another cladding material that is quite popular thanks to its natural properties. Plywood emulates the beautiful aesthetics of timber but costs a little less so it is good for a smaller budget. It is also flexible and performs well against the elements in a similar fashion to timber. It can look a little less appealing than timber, though.
Vinyl cladding is a good all-around cladding material. It is easy to install and offers decent insulation from the elements. As it is made from PVC, vinyl cladding is very good at protecting against temperature fluctuations, so it is worth considering if you have variable seasons. It is not the prettiest to look at, though, especially when compared to timber cladding.
Brick cladding is a type of layering material that works both indoors and outdoors. It offers excellent insulation and protection from the elements and is reasonably easy to maintain over time. It is quite expensive, however, and it takes quite a while to install. If you are on a tight deadline or budget, brick cladding might not be the best option for you.
Aluminium cladding is another great option with a lot of benefits. It is very lightweight which makes installation quite easy. It is also an environmentally friendly option as it can be recycled, however, it is prone to damage over time so will need to be repaired or replaced.
Which cladding is best?
We feel that timber cladding offers the most advantages and is the best type of cladding to use. It is a beautiful, resilient material that is relatively inexpensive and easy to maintain. If you are considering cladding for your next project, we would recommend timber cladding.

Rafters can be installed almost immediately. They don’t require the kind of planning and precise measuring of timber trusses.
5. Property height
Rafters are the better option if you’re converting your attic space for living or storage. They offer maximum headroom.
Timber trusses are studier thanks to their webbed structure. Trusses are better suited to large properties. Rafters can be used in smaller projects.
Most properties using roof trusses have flat, rather than vaulted ceilings created by rafters. People who want a classic sloping roof may need rafters.
