Cladding is a protective covering that protects the outside of a building.
Aluminium cladding is a type of cladding system that is made from aluminium, a lightweight but strong metal. The aluminium itself is powder coated or anodised in order to protect it. Aluminium cladding is available as boards or panels that are affixed to the exterior of the house in order to improve its aesthetics and also to protect it from the elements.
Aluminium is a great choice for cladding as it is lightweight thus easy to install, it is very durable, it is resistant to moisture and saltwater, it is impervious to termites and other insects, and it handles harsh weather conditions very well.
