What is Wall Cladding?
Cladding is the process of layering one material over another material. Wall cladding simply means to layer material over a wall. It is also known as siding. Cladding can be carried out on not just the exterior walls but also the interior walls. Several materials can be used to layer the walls, depending on the requirement. This gives you a wide variety to choose from and it gives a new look to the building structure.

#1. Brick Wall Cladding
Brick cladding is one of the oldest exterior wall cladding schemes, combining a striking appearance with excellent durability and structural benefits. Bricks are fire-resistant, thermally stable, long-lasting, weather-resistant, low-maintenance, and non-toxic, and they have excellent sound insulation. Bricks are also environmentally friendly since they can be recycled, reused, or crushed for fill. Bricks come in a variety of colors, shapes, finishes, and textures, giving you more style options.
#2. Timber Cladding
Hardwood timber is becoming increasingly popular as an exterior cladding material in both commercial and residential construction.
#3. Fibre Cement Wall Cladding
Fibre cement cladding (also known as Harditex cladding) is a high-performance, low-maintenance exterior cladding solution available from James Hardie in 14 different horizontal and vertical grooved boards and rectangular and rectangular square panels.
#4. Aluminium Architectural Cladding
When it comes to exterior cladding, aesthetics, reliability, weather resistance, and maintenance, as well as thermal, acoustic, and fire performance aluminum architectural cladding could be the best option.
The non-combustible aluminum architectural cladding is ideal for new construction, repairs, and cladding over weatherboard houses. It comes with a variety of practical wood finishes, including White Oak, Beechwood, Walnut, Sapele, Mahogany, Cherry, Antique Grey, and Charred. A proprietary heat transfer technique is used to create a realistic wood look.
#5 Hardwood Fibreboard Cladding
Hardwood fiberboard cladding is constructed from hardwood and natural wax, and it claims to have a carbon footprint that is “better than zero.” It is built for architects and designers who want to achieve green building goals. The cladding can be used in both exterior and internal cladding applications because it has no chemical additives.
#6 Vinyl Wall Cladding
Vinyl cladding is one of the most robust external cladding options available and one of the most common. Timber-themed vinyl cladding comes with thermal and acoustic quality.
#7 Prefinished Fibre Cement Panels
Articlad has a beautiful collection of exterior prefinished fiber cement (or concrete cladding) panels with a striking raw cement finish. Articlad Precast Wall Panels are made of clay, sand, cellulose fiber, and water, weathers naturally, allowing its organic finish to blend in with the surroundings. The subtle yet lovely stone finish is ideal for making a polished contrast in either modern or traditional design schemes.
Concrete wall panels are lightweight, sturdy, low-maintenance, and simple to mount on exterior walls, making them ideal for building facades. The prefinished panels are weather-resistant and have a long-term exterior cladding solution.
#8 Natural Stone Cladding
Cladding Studio offers sandstone, bluestone, granite, and quartzite as natural stone cladding options. Natural stone external wall cladding is perfect for feature walls, pool areas, retaining walls, stairwells, and fireplaces, as well as around columns and fountains. Select a natural stone that blends in with the surrounding environment. The absorption of water by high-density stones is reduced, which slows the discoloration process. Darker colors in natural stone cladding are simpler to preserve so the soil doesn’t turn up as quickly. Lighter colors, on the other hand, would need more frequent washing to avoid staining.
With its striking appearance, natural stone or tile cladding brings charm to new houses. Natural stone is also very long-lasting, serves as an outstanding insulator, is resistant to harsh climates, prevents burning, withstands abrasions and scratches, and is simple to maintain. On the other hand, natural stone is more costly than other wall cladding options and requires more labor during construction. For support, natural stone cladding requires a structural substrate.
