Benefits of Timber Cladding
Timber Cladding installation
Wood Cladding can offer energy cost savings along with improved insulation properties.
Weight savings along with timber frames and lightweight roofs can offer significant weight savings compared with masonry. Foundation widths and depths can therefore be reduced.
Modern contemporary and traditional designs can be easily achieved.
Wood cladding can reduce construction lead times and therefore reduce build costs.
Renovation and future proofing new builds is also a real benefit.
Use of Natural Resources.
As an environmentally friendly and renewable natural resource wood cladding is accepted as a low environmental impact material. This compares favourably with non renewable materials.
