Geelong House Recladders

house cladding

Cladding is your property’s first line of defence, and you never know what lies beneath until you have a look. At best, it’s a matter of removing the old cladding and installing new material but the worst-case scenario will have you dealing with expensive remedial work, building permits, and spending hours searching for and scheduling multiple specialist contractors. 
Overwhelmed? Don’t be, we’re here to help. Get in touch with a local Geelong Renovation Consultant and arrange a free consultation to discuss how we can professionally manage your recladding project.

What are the common materials used to reclad a house? 

Timber has been a long standing favourite cladding choice amongst homeowners. It’s versatile, durable, highly customisable, and deemed a renewable resource. However, timber itself can be broken down into numerous sub-categories: there’s adobo, a natural-toned timber, typically applied vertically; cedar, known for its rustic appearance; and bamboo, a hardwearing and fire-retardant option.
While it’s a reliable material, timber is certainly not the only choice for cladding. Aluminium, corrugated steel, fibre cement, vinyl, brick, and natural stone materials such as schist are all fantastic options. Get in touch with a local Geelong Renovation Consultant to discuss what material would be best for your property.
