VINYL CLADDING – YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

What Is Vinyl Cladding?

Sometimes called vinyl siding or PVC weatherboard; vinyl cladding is a factory moulded, composite material, typically made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin. That’s a similar compound to PVC plumbing pipes and fittings. Vinyl cladding has a similar look to the classic weatherboard cladding you might see on the beautiful period homes of rural Victoria, or the iconic “Queenslander” homes of yesteryear.

Does Vinyl Cladding Look Good?

For some people, the term “vinyl cladding” conjures up images of caravan park cabins and cheap 1990s kit homes. But make no mistake, quality vinyl cladding has come a long way since then, and quality vinyl cladding that’s properly installed looks great and gives your home serious street appeal. With a plethora of colours and textures to choose from, it’s a flexible option that can suit almost any home. Vinyl cladding is very popular with contemporary homes because of its sleeker appearance over its wooden counterpart.

Is Vinyl Cladding Expensive?

PVC cladding won't break the bank. In fact, PVC cladding is one of the more affordable types of cladding, largely due to its ease of installation and low maintenance properties.

Is Vinyl Cladding Maintenance Intensive?

No. Vinyl cladding is supremely durable and hard-wearing. Unlike timber cladding, which needs to be seasoned, primed, and painted just right for it to reach its maximum lifespan; vinyl cladding comes ready painted and protected. This eliminates a host of potential maintenance issues stemming from human error during installation. More importantly though, while timber cladding requires painting every 8 years, vinyl cladding doesn’t require repainting at all since the colour and weather-resistant properties are actually baked into the material at the time of manufacturing, reducing the overall life-cycle costs significantly.

How Long Does Vinyl Cladding Last?

With barely any maintenance or cleaning, a home-owner can expect about 50-60 years. With periodic cleaning and just general maintenance though, this can be increased to 100 years or even more. This is mainly because, unlike timber cladding, vinyl is impervious to moisture rot and insect attack.

Is Vinyl Cladding Insulative?

At D J Kelly Building Co., we use insulated vinyl cladding (vinyl cladding with polystyrene insulation). We are also familiar with NSW government legislation on minimum thermal properties and can help you to choose the right cladding for your home and budget. So yes, vinyl cladding offers good insulation to keep you cool in summer and warm in winter.

Is Vinyl Cladding BAL 29 Compliant (Bushfire Safe)?

BAL stands for “Bushfire Attack Level”, and the level will be dependent on the location of your home. The greater the risk, the higher the BAL level. For example, BAL 12.5 stands for “risk from embers during fire”, whereas BAL 29 stands for “high risk, particularly from embers, debris, and heat”. If your house is a BAL 29 house, then the cladding you choose must offer resistance to embers and radiant heat in the event of a bushfire. Using non-compliant materials in your house can not only put your property at risk, but can even affect the validity of your insurance coverage in the case of a fire.

The fully trained and licenced team at D J Kelly Building Co. can help you choose the BAL compliant vinyl cladding option for your home. That’s why D J Kelly Building Co. offers the virtually indestructible Fortress Board, offering the following impressive specs:

What Are The Top 6 Benefits Of Vinyl Cladding?

  1. Finish quality: vinyl cladding offers a consistent, sleek finish that is not obtainable from its timber counterpart. While those going for a heritage style, antique look may still opt for wood due to its natural irregularities, vinyl cladding offers a sleek, uniform finish for modern, contemporary homes.
  2. Maintenance: with maintenance requirements being almost non-existent; vinyl cladding offers freedom from the 8-year painting cycle, and insect/moisture-related problems, saving you time and money for years to come.
  3. Ease of installation: vinyl cladding is quick and hassle-free for experts like D J Kelly Building Co. to install, saving the homeowner time and money on the final project invoice. An added benefit of this ease of installation is that it maximises the finish quality and overall precision of the finished product.
  4. Insulative: pre-insulated vinyl cladding keeps you cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and keeps that dreaded utility bill at bay.
  5. Affordable (upfront and lifecycle): not only is vinyl cladding easy on the pocket through the installation and maintenance phases; it also offers an exceptional life-span, further increasing the savings.
  6. Flame resistant options available: flame-resistant vinyl cladding gives you added peace of mind, largely due to its being composed mainly of PVC which is inherently flame retardant due to its chlorine base. According to the vinylsiding.org, vinyl siding (or cladding) typically ignites at 387 degrees Celsius, whereas wood products, in this case, typical framing timber, can ignite at temperatures as low as 260 degrees Celsius.
