A guide on house cladding

Cladding Homes

In modern home construction, house cladding stands out as a quintessential element, not just for its functional benefits but also for its aesthetic appeal. As the largest builders in the NSW Region, McDonald Jones Homes understands the significance of integrating high quality cladding into home designs that withstand the test of time, offering both visual appeal and practical durability. Let's delve into the world of house cladding, exploring its what, why and how, along with showcasing some exceptional designs by McDonald Jones Homes.

What is house cladding?

House cladding serves as the protective outer layer of a building, shielding it from the elements while enhancing its appearance. This exterior cladding can be crafted from a variety of materials, each with its own set of characteristics and advantages. Common exterior cladding materials include timber, vinyl, brick and metal, each offering unique textures, colours and levels of durability.

Benefits of Cladded Homes

Visual attractiveness

Residential cladding serves as a canvas for architectural expression, allowing homeowners to personalise their exteriors with textures, colours and patterns. Whether it's the rustic charm of timber or the sleek modernity of metal, cladding adds visual interest and curb appeal to residential properties.

Weather resistance

One of the primary functions of residential cladding is to protect homes from harsh environmental conditions. Cladding materials are chosen for their durability and ability to withstand moisture, wind and temperature fluctuations, ensuring that homes remain structurally sound for years to come.

Low maintenance

Unlike traditional exterior finishes that require frequent painting or repairs, modern cladded homes are relatively low maintenance. With minimal upkeep, homeowners can enjoy long lasting protection and aesthetic appeal without the hassle of constant maintenance.
