The benefits of composite cladding
What is composite cladding?
Composite cladding is a modern alternative to wood cladding, and it has a range of benefits over traditional timber. It’s made from a mixture of natural wood and man-made fibres such as plastic. The mixture is moulded to form boards that mimic the appearance of natural wood cladding boards.
Our composite cladding is made from recycled wood and plastic materials, which means it’s a great option for the environment. During manufacture, waste products are removed from oceans and landfills and reused in this long-lasting, hard-wearing garden product. Find out more about how it’s made.
What are the benefits of composite cladding?
Composite cladding has a lot of benefits, here are some of the best:
- Long lifespan. Composite cladding generally lasts longer than timber cladding because it is more weather resistant. While timber boards need to be replaced every few years due to rotting, water damage and mould, composite boards have a much longer lifespan.
- Cost-saving. Although the up-front cost of getting and installing composite is more than timber, over its lifetime you will probably save money due to its long lifespan and low maintenance costs.
- Eco-friendly. Composite cladding is made up partially of processed single-use plastic products. This is a highly effective way to reuse and recycle these waste products which would otherwise end up in landfill sites. Additionally, composite decking reduces forestation because it is made up of waste wood products. You can read more about the ecological benefits of cladding here.
- Lightweight. Composite cladding is lighter than timber decking without compromising on strength. This makes installation easier, and transport more carbon-efficient.
- Low maintenance. Timber cladding requires a lot of maintenance. Cleaning, treating water damage, replacing broken or warped boards, oiling, sanding, insect repelling and so on. Composite cladding requires hardly any maintenance to stay strong and keep its freshly out-of-the-box look.
- Comes with matching accessories! Our product ranges include loads of high quality products you can choose to pair with your composite cladding. From matching fencing to balustrades, you can create beautiful garden focal points with ease.
