Considering Cladding: Options for Your New Home

Posted by Swanbuild on 28, July, 2017

The exterior of your home should reflect your personal style as it is often the first thing that people notice.  Fortunately, there are a multitude of materials available to choose from when selecting an exterior that expresses your definition of the perfect home.  In this post we will review the various cladding options available in order to customise your home in the way you've always dreamed of.

Weatherboard Cladding

This type of cladding is great for those who enjoy the look and feel of real wood, and who want a home with a beautiful country or beachside feel. Weatherboard homes can be painted in virtually any colour you can imagine, providing the ultimate flexibility to personalise the exterior of your home.

Timber Cladding

For those preferring a more rustic look and feel, timber cladding is an excellent choice.  Homeowners who like the idea of adding a unique feature to the exterior of their home can easily do so by incorporating timber cladding.

Colourbond Cladding

If you prefer a more modern look for your home's exterior, colourbond steel cladding is a finish that's hard to beat. Not only does this material come in a variety of colours and profiles, it is extremely durable and low maintance.

Cement SHEET Cladding 

For those looking for a contemporary or industrial look, cement sheet cladding is an ideal choice. This type of cladding requires very little maintenance and if desired, homeowners can paint the cladding to provide an even more striking appearance.
