    Advantages of using Metal Cladding

    The advantages of using metal cladding are –

    • Metal Cladding gives a very shiny appearance and requires very low maintenance. Once clad it remains like that for years to come.
    • Metal Cladding does not absorb any kind of moisture hence it is highly resistant to algae and fungi.
    • Metal Claddings are resistant to fire.
    • Metal Cladding is light in weight and does not increase the dead load of the building.
    • Metal Cladding is not a very good insulator for sound. However, some acoustical infill material can be placed  inside the metal siding so as to increase the sound insulation of the place
    • They are available in a variety of colours and textures.
    • Metal Cladding provides adequate heat insulation which makes the building energy efficient and helps in reducing the electricity bills.
    • Metal is malleable hence can be twisted to any direction so as to create interesting shapes in the facades.
