How to Calculate Your m²/ft²?

How to Calculate Your m²/ft²?

It’s actually very easy to calculate how many square meters or foot an area is, whether it is a simple rectangle or more complex shape. When dealing with a simple rectangle, just multiply the length by the width for your total square meterage or footage. If you’re dealing with a more complex shape, treat each area as a rectangle and perform the same calculation. Then combine the square meterage or footage of each area for to get the total area.

Common Questions About UPVC Cladding

UPVC cladding is one of the most effective ways to transform the exterior of your home to add a sleek, new finish. What’s more, thanks to its innovative construction, it’s incredibly simple to fit and requires minimal maintenance. It also helps to form a weatherproof seal on your property, protecting it from being damaged by the weather. There are however a few common questions our customers ask before buying cladding from us. Below are answers to each of these!

Why Is Cladding Done?

Cladding can be thought of as a sort of “skin” or additional layer installed onto the exterior of a building. It can be fit onto a building’s framework or installed onto an intermediate layer of battens or spacers. External wall cladding is used to “…provide a degree of thermal insulation and weather resistance, and to improve the appearance of buildings.” In addition to this, a cavity is usually left between cladding and the wall of the building, so rainwater and other excess moisture can run down and away from the structure.

How Much Does It Cost to Clad Your House?

UPVC cladding is one of the most cost-effective ways to clad a residential or commercial property. In contrast to traditional timber or brick cladding, which can cost in excess of £50 per square metre, UPVC cladding costs on average around £20 per square metre.

Does Cladding Need Planning Permission?

In general, planning permission is not required when refreshing the cladding on an existing property. There are some exceptions to this however, such as if the property is a listed building, or if you live in a conservation area. We’d always recommend checking with your local authority before undertaking any project if you’re unsure.

How Long Does It Take to Clad a House?

While it does of course depend on the size of your home, as well as a number of other factors such as the weather, installing UPVC cladding onto your home should take between 2 and 3 days.

Can You Put Cladding Over Bricks?

Yes, you can install cladding over brickwork. Many homeowners feel that the brick veneer of their home lends it a dull, uninspiring quality. Usually, when cladding over bricks timber or steel battens are also installed, as well as a weatherproof membrane to help solidify the home’s structural integrity against weather damage. As always, consult a qualified tradesperson to ensure the project you wish to undertake is right for your home.

Do I Need a Membrane Under Cladding?

Yes, to add an additional layer of weatherproofing, we’d recommend installing a breathable vapour membrane underneath your UPVC cladding to provide another line of defence. This membrane won’t just help to prevent water build-up, but thanks to its breathability, it will also add ventilation to the property, making condensation less likely to form.
