There is a feeling of excitement when you first purchase a home. You move in and are eager to stamp your own mark on the property.

Unfortunately, as time passes the changes you’ve made often start to look tired and you need to consider changing them or upgrading them again.

Transforming the outside of your home with cladding is a great way to add value, reduce energy bills and make your house look stunning again. Simply landscape or even just tidy your garden and you’ll have a house that is the envy of the street.

The great thing about choosing cladding is that it doesn’t need to be expensive. Vinyl cladding is one of the cheapest options, it comes in a variety of colors and styles, allowing you to create the perfect look for your home. 

In effect, it can restore the excitement you felt when you first moved in.

In fact, there are several reasons why cladding should be your first option when improving your home:

Energy Saving

Cladding adds an extra layer to the outside of your home, effectively creating an additional air cushion, between the cladding and your walls. This will work as an insulator in the same way air trapped inside double-glazing units work.

You can even improve this effect by using insulated vinyl cladding!

It will keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.


There are many ways to patch up or make the exterior of your home look better but cladding is a great option because it needs virtually no maintenance and will last for approximately 50 years.

If you choose vinyl cladding it is recommended that you pressure wash it once or twice a year, that’s all you need to do other than a visual inspection to ensure it hasn’t been damaged.


You may be surprised by the cost of vinyl cladding, it is surprisingly low!

Add to that that the installation process is simple and your home can be transformed in a matter of days, without you needing to do anything that’s a pretty good incentive!


Cladding is a great way to transform the look of your home. You can make it look like traditional wood, stained wood, fiber cement or a multitude of other materials. This means you can create a home exterior that matches the house of your dreams, without having to spend the funds that usually accompany these type of dreams.

In addition, you can make your home stand out while keeping in the same tradition as the other houses in your area.

There are actually many different types of cladding, you can choose from vinyl cladding, metal siding, brick, stone, wood, and a variety of other options. That’s why you’re certain to find something that appeals o your tastes and budget.

The benefit is a protected house that looks fantastic and needs very little maintenance for the next 50 years! That’s got to be a good incentive.;tid=1;dt=6;
