Vinyl Cladding and Aluminium Cladding for your Home's Exterior

Exterior Vinyl Cladding Brisbane

Exterior cladding adds an extra layer of protection to the walls of your home or building. It protects your property from outside elements, especially moisture invasion. It also insulates the building and enhances its appearance.

Cladding comes in a range of appealing colours and varieties. It serves both decorative and functional purposes.

If you are planning to install external cladding to your property, there are numerous things you need to know.

We are huge advocates of Vinyl Cladding or Vinyl Siding installation to the exterior of your home but we thought we would outline some other forms of cladding for your information :

Exterior Cladding Options

Brick cladding

Brick cladding is expensive, but it adds great value to your property. You can choose from an array of colours and sizes that best suit the style of your home.

Plaster Cladding

Plaster is an excellent choice for exterior cladding. It offers a seamless appearance, offering an aesthetic to any type of building. It comes in a range of colours, styles and textures, which help you, enjoy design freedom.

Metal Cladding

Metal cladding, especially aluminium cladding offers effective weather protection, it is lightweight, yet very durable.

Timber Cladding

Timber is a versatile choice. Many types of wood like sweet chestnut and oak are suitable for cladding. However, they are more expensive. Mid priced durable wood like fir and cedar are also available. Wood is easy to use and is renewable. You can leave it unfinished or choose from an array of finish options.

Stone Cladding

Stone cladding gives a character to any building. It is durable, fireproof and a great thermal insulator. However, it is more expensive than other materials. It also requires a range of modifications in the building to fit the exterior surface area.

You can consider installing stone cladding in some areas, instead of cladding the entire surface.

Vinyl Cladding

This is the cladding we at Abbey Specialise in

Vinyl Cladding is extremely durable, weather proof and has great insulation capacity. It is a cheaper option and offers long lasting performance.

Polystyrene Cladding

Polystyrene is a good choice for exterior cladding, as it is cost effective, durable and flexible, easy to install and a good insulator.

Exterior Cladding Benefits


Exterior cladding involves affixing a layer of thermal cladding to the walls. It prevents moisture from entering into the property. It restricts heat flow from passing through the cladding, so temperature inside the home can be easily controlled.

Reduced Maintenance Costs

Exterior cladding with vinyl, polystyrene, plaster, metal and brick is easy to install and maintain. These materials are strong and offer great impact resistance.

Enhance the Appearance and Value of your Property

Cladding enhances the aesthetic appeal of your home or office. As it comes in many colours and styles, you can pick the one that matches with the style and colour of your property. Adding exterior cladding can help increase the value of your property also.

Saves on Energy Costs

By controlling heat flow, exterior cladding helps your interior a warm and cosy place to live in. It helps reduce your energy bills every month, so you can save a lot of money.

It is advisable to get the help of a professional builder to install exterior cladding, as the professional ensures that the installation is made according to the stringent rules and regulations of Australian building codes.
