Benefits of Cladding in Canberra

Cladding provides Canberra homeowners with many potential benefits.

  • Requires little maintenance (generally speaking).
  • Provides a home with extra insulation (if the right cladding system is used).
  • Is available as a finished product (many forms of cladding require no initial painting).
  • Significantly changes the look of a home – making it more attractive.
  • Provides a house (particularly its structure) with additional protection from the elements.
  • Increases the mechanical strength of a building (provided the right system is installed properly).

Fire Safety Aspects of Cladding in Canberra

Most newer forms of cladding have high fire-resistance ratings. On the other hand, some older forms of cladding are considered highly combustible, and should be replaced ASAP. In 2020, the ACT Government established “a concessional loan scheme to support eligible private building owners to respond to potential cladding issues.”

Timber Cladding

Timber cladding is becoming increasingly popular in Canberra. Many of the latest timber cladding products offer high levels of termite, seismic and fire resistance. ONGSORM can help you select the right timber cladding system for your Canberra or Queanbeyan home. We also provide painting and staining services for timber cladding in Canberra.

Fibre Cement Cladding

Fibre cement cladding comes in square and rectangular panels, as well as grooved boards (horizontal and vertical). Fibre cement sheets are durable, have good water resistance and require relatively little maintenance (after painting and sealing). Many fibre cement cladding products come pre-primed and ready to paint (something that ONGSORM can do for you).

Vinyl Cladding

Vinyl cladding, which often mimics the look of timber, is a popular cladding option in Canberra and Queanbeyan. Vinyl cladding, which is generally made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), is durable, low-maintenance and available in a wide range of colours. Many newer forms of vinyl cladding have a Green Star rating and feature CFC-free solid foam insulation.

Metal Cladding

Colorbond metal cladding is fairly popular in Canberra. Colorbond is made from lightweight steel that’s durable, stylish and low-maintenance. Colorbond cladding comes in 22 standard colours and 5 matt colours. In addition, Colorbond cladding is highly fire resistant and doesn’t chip easily. ONGSORM can take you through the benefits of Colorbond cladding.
