Vinyl cladding from Mitten Vinyl Australia is helping homeowners minimise costs when renovating or building granny flats.

The need for more affordable accommodation across the country, and especially in major cities, has triggered a boom in the humble granny flat segment with homeowners and investors renovating their old granny flats to increase their rental income or building new ones.

That the demand for this type of accommodation is high can be confirmed by a recent report in the Wall Street Journal that stated granny flat approvals have risen on average by 35% over the past 12 months, with that figure doubled in some parts of Sydney.

The appeal for granny flats is more due to the relatively small investment needed for building or renovating one compared to the additional income that can be earned from rentals.

Homeowners and investors can maximise the profits on their rental flats by keeping the building or renovation costs low. Vinyl cladding is a popular choice for renovations and new projects alike with its versatility, ease of installation and affordability making it an ideal choice for an attractive and low-cost granny flat.

Vinyl cladding can be easily installed over new framework for new projects or fixed to the original surface in renovations to provide a simple, inexpensive facelift. Vinyl cladding offers excellent thermal properties to provide comfort for tenants, while its low ongoing maintenance makes it an excellent investment for years to come.

Mitten Vinyl Australia is a fully independent, family owned and operated company that has been supplying vinyl cladding products to the Australian market for over 50 years.

Mitten Vinyl supplies a complete range of vinyl cladding styles for new projects, renovations and DIY jobs.
