Exterior Home Wall Cladding
“Wall cladding” refers to materials that cover the outside of a building’s exterior walls. The purpose of the wall cladding coverings is to provide the building with a weather resistant exterior envelope. The materials cover the building but do not contribute to its structural integrity. The exterior home wall cladding is often not one material but an assembly of materials, and each material has its own importance in blocking exterior conditions. Several types of exterior home wall cladding are used to insulate buildings. Materials used include wood, stone, brick, concrete and metal. Metal cladding is particularly durable and is often used on industrial buildings.
