Cladding is an exterior finishing system like a skin or an additional non-load bearing layer that serve a dual purpose. It not only helps in protecting the interiors of the building from the harsh weather elements but also makes the outside decorative and attractive. It is a layer of metal connected to a layer of different metals or the process that connected them.

Why Do We Need Cladding 

The purpose of cladding is to protect a building’s structure from natural elements like wind and rain but it can have other benefits such as insulation, noise control and it can boost the aesthetic appeal of a building. 

The major purpose of cladding is to separate the indoor environment of the building from the outdoor in such a way that indoor environmental conditions can be maintained at a level suitable for the building’s intended use. Cladding projects shouldn’t require any planning permission. In construction, cladding is used to provide a degree of thermal insulation.
