Prefinished materials are emerging as the superior choice for cladding and lining in the building industry. With increasing options now available, building professionals are in need of a better understanding of how to use prefinished materials and the unique possibilities they offer.

The benefits of implementing prefinished materials in building projects are huge and their popularity is developing as architects and specifiers realise their unique capabilities.

One of the largest potential benefits of prefinished materials is the reduction in the length of time spent onsite. There is now a more sophisticated range of high-quality textures and finishes as they are produced in a factory setting.

Incorporating prefinished materials is not just about purchasing a new product; it is about changing the whole approach to how projects are finished. New methods of procuring cladding and lining are making the integration of prefinished materials a smooth and logical transition for building professionals. Online or downloadable apps for selecting systems and specifying measurements are making the procurement of prefinished materials a seamless process, while the ability to integrate specific prefinished products into BIM/CAD models ensure that materials are integrated into the design from the very beginning.

In an industry where conforming and compliant products are of utmost importance, prefinished materials offer building professionals an uncomplicated option. The ability to check the compliance of just one product – the prefinished material – as opposed to a number of assembled components – in the case of materials finished on-site is hugely beneficial to architects and specifiers.
