Construction Cladding

Cladding used in construction is used to provide a skin or a layer to control the infiltration of weather elements, this is not used as a form of waterproofing. This is main used to safely direct water or wind in order to prevent any of the elements to infiltrate the buildings structure.

Siding and wall cladding

Wall cladding is material applied to the exterior walls of a house or building in means to shed water and protect the walls from other weather effects. Some walls such as facebrick are not covered with siding.

Sidings may be formed vertically or horizontally using boards, shingles or sheet materials. Avoiding wind and rain through the joints always remains a challenge, but by overlapping, covering or sealing these joints, these challenges can be met.
