When considering external cladding for buildings, architects, designers and specifiers would do well to choose a material that not only meets the design and durability objectives but also comes from a sustainable source.
External wall cladding adds value and style to any property across home, business and commercial building segments. Timber is a highly popular and preferred material for cladding applications as it provides the rich, warm and natural finish that cannot be achieved by clay, weatherboard, stucco or cement.
However, while timber is by far, the best solution for external cladding, it’s also important to ensure the material meets the desired sustainability goals without harming the environment.
