Cladding on the outside of a modern building.

External Cladding Systems


External cladding provides thermal insulation and weather resistance for buildings. It also makes them look great! External cladding systems come in a range of colours, materials and textures dependent on the look you require. If you want to increase the value of your home, or make your business premises stand out from the rest, cladding is a great way to achieve it.

The UK Government has requested that all unsafe ACM and non-ACM cladding is replaced and in many cases is providing grants for the building owners and responsible parties.  See our ACM cladding replacement and Non-ACM Cladding replacement pages for more information.


1. Aluminium

Aluminium is a superbly flexible material which is favoured because it can be shaped into curves or angles to suit the architectural design of the building. It is also a comparatively light construction material which lightens the load on the structure. Cladding comes in a flat sheet type, or as part of a composite system. Composites are easy to maintain, durable, and keep their sheen for years.

2. Fibre Cement Cladding

Fibre cement sheets are a popular choice with simple installation and high durability, being a favoured choice in architectural projects. These sheets are made from a mixture of sand, cement, and cellulose fibres.

Using these fibrous cement sheets create a more durable option, removes additional maintenance costs which are associated with other cladding options.

3. Stone Cladding

Stone external cladding systems are made up of a thin layer of stone, laid on top of a material such as concrete. You can choose from a range of stone finishes including granite, sandstone, or limestone. The beauty of the natural textures and colours gives your property a unique external design, whilst providing a lightweight, weatherproof shell for your property.

4. A1-A2 Fire Rated Systems 

A1 and A2 fire rated cladding systems come with a non-combustible seal of approval, giving the construction industry faith using these systems on high rise developments above certain metreage.

The Government in the wake of Grenfell tragedy in 2017 have put up funding of over £5bn to help leaseholders in residential buildings make sure the correct fire rated cladding system is in place.
