The benefits of cladding products

blog categories

From a smart, understated finish to a bold, head-turning design, cladding can be used creatively to take your home or commercial property’s exterior to the next level. Stone cladding is a thin layer of stone that is used for the interior or exterior of a building, generally on top of a material that isn’t stone, such as concrete.   

Whether you’re cladding the front of a house, an exterior wall, garden wall, summer house, or a commercial property, let’s look at some of the benefits of cladding products.  

THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF STONE

The natural, unrivalled beauty of cladding is an obvious pro! Due to its completely natural textures, shadings and colour variations, natural stone cladding appears to have the same depth as an authentic stone wall. In fact, it can be almost impossible to differentiate between the premium stone cladding and a stone wall that has been built by laying individual stones on top of each other.

HIGHLY VERSATILE

If you are looking to install natural stone wall cladding outdoors, you can use them to enhance braai areas, water features, retaining walls, chimneys, and other exterior substrates like a feature wall for the patio. If you want to give your home’s interior a natural stone touch, stone cladding is an excellent choice for fireplaces, feature walls and bathrooms. Additionally, it is also complimentary to other materials such as concrete and timber.

VERY DURABLE

Another benefit is its extreme durability and long lifespan. If you decide to use it on an exterior wall, stone cladding is robust and can withstand the effects from all forms of nature. Come rain or wind, your stone cladding is there to stay. It’s even fire resistant, which is a great added benefit.

There are many types of natural stone that are usually applied on the exterior. Some types of natural stone are suitable for an area that are damp or wet most of the time. Some other types like basalt absorb humidity easily, which will likely to trigger moss growth. Make sure to choose proper natural stone and apply it where it is meant to be.

COULD POTENTIALLY INCREASE THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME

Lastly, it may increase the value of your home. Natural stone isn’t the cheapest of cladding, but it’s an investment that could pay off further down the line. By choosing natural stone, it may assist you in realising your resale expectations of your property if you decide to sell. Because of its environmental factors and durability, it’s a benefit for potential buyers to invest in.
