What Are The Benefits Of Composite Cladding?

Our Composite Exterior Cladding, also known as WPC Cladding, is produced by EcoScape. It’s a great alternative to traditional timber cladding; it can be used on a variety of exterior applications, from new builds to renovations, as well as sunrooms or contemporary garden rooms.

In this article, we’ll go over the main benefits of using EcoScape Composite Cladding for your property, and why we think it’s a better option for your property than timber cladding.

Low Maintenance

The biggest benefit that Composite Cladding has to offer is that it requires very little maintenance in comparison to traditional timber cladding. The colour of Composite Cladding won’t fade or stain at all, which saves the task of touching up paint jobs over the years. It’s also very durable, which means it doesn’t need to be sealed or repaired at all.

It should be noted, however, that Composite Cladding is not completely maintenance-free – it does require some maintenance in the way of cleaning of any dirt, mud, or mould that may be lurking. This process is straightforward, though; it can be done easily with a brush or broom and some soapy water.

Super Strong & Durable

As mentioned above, Composite Cladding is very durable – in fact, it’s supplied with a 25-year warranty! The Cladding is manufactured using recycled high-density polyethylene and reclaimed wood fibres, which when combined creates a robust material that’s built to last.

All of EcoScape’s Composite Cladding boards and trims are also finished with a durable polymer outer shell, making them weather resistant and impermeable. This means that they won’t rot, warp, splinter, or stain as traditional timber might. With the right maintenance, the Cladding system will stay in a great state for years!

Range of Colours & Styles

EcoScape’s Composite Cladding is available in a variety of colours, as well as two different style options – slatted and panel. Whatever look you’re going for with your property, there’s a Cladding style to suit it!

The colours available include:

  • Argent – a blend of dark grey and blue akin to anthracite grey (panels)
  • Flint – a mix of various shades of grey, inspired by concrete (panels)
  • Havana – a board that replicates the colour of traditional hardwood decking (panels)
  • Midnight – the darkest board within our range (slatted and panels)
  • Silver Birch – the lightest board we offer, featuring a blend of grey and oak (slatted and panels)
  • Spiced Oak – a vibrant option that imitates the appearance of oiled red cedar (slatted and panels)

Easy Installation

Finally, a huge benefit of using Composite Cladding on your property is that it’s super easy to install. Featuring a user-friendly tongue and groove system, you can install Composite Cladding both horizontally and vertically! It’s been specially designed to accommodate to installations in awkward or difficult to reach areas, so there’s no need to worry about fitting it up high or in tricky corners.

The system also uses hidden fixings, which allows it to appear completely seamless while being securely fastened to the substrate.
