Common Questions About Cladding

Customers often come to us with questions about our cladding range. Below you’ll find a selection of the most common.

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.

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.

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.
