Why Use Timber Cladding?

Why Use Timber Cladding?

Often referred to as weather board, weatherboarding or siding in construction, timber cladding is the process of covering the outer walls of a home or a commercial establishment with another material, such as timber to provide another layer. In many parts of Australia, most homeowners and builders are choosing to clad their buildings with timber, both for protection and improvement of the building’s appearance.

If you are looking for an excellent way of protecting your home from the elements and outside noise, you can contact Heyden Frame and Truss for help. We are a business, that specialises in timber roof trusses and wall frames, including timber cladding. There are a lot of reasons why you should apply timber cladding for homes. Here’s a list of some of benefits, regarding using timber for your home cladding:

  1. We can install timber cladding quickly and more effectively because it is lightweight.  Timber is easier to handle, so the work can be completed in a short period. In the process, your construction costs are reduced, which makes this material a more cost-effective choice, for your timber cladding for homes.

  2.  Our timber cladding can last for many years, especially if it is maintained properly. Timber has a high resistance to impacts, so the level of damage if there is any, is minimal. To enhance the durability of the material, it is generally treated before installation or we use a naturally resistant species of wood.

  3. Our timber cladding for homes is energy efficient. It’s because timber has high insulation properties compared to steel and concrete, and it also has lower thermal conductivity. Your energy consumption to heat and cold is thereby reduced, saving you money over time.

  4. We can create as many designs as you want for your home cladding. Timber can be trimmed to any size, besides being available in different patterns and colours. You can even experiment with different decorative effects, such as staining or painting the outer covering. Sometimes you can allow the material to go through its own natural process of weathering and the result can be a unique colour, that is appealing to the eye.

  5. We use timber cladding for homes because, unlike vinyl and concrete, timber is environmentally friendly. It is also a naturally renewable source and one hundred per cent recyclable, making it one of the materials; that is friendly to the environment.

  6. Our timber cladding professionals use siding to insulate your home. When you have noise present outside, you don’t want it to disturb your peaceful environment, timber helps in filtering out any outside noise because of its excellent sound absorption properties. Your home becomes a haven of peace and tranquillity, by using timber cladding.
