There are many benefits to cladding a building. These include increased energy efficiency because of improved thermal insulation and reduced noise both of which are very popular with residents and therefore with landlords and owners.
On older buildings, cladding can be installed to additionally offer improved structural performance, create a more robust structure and to improve the aesthetic appearance of the building. This is called retrofit and improves the durability and longevity of housing stock and is particularly liked by social sector landlords.
Guests, visitors, workers and residents enjoy the same benefits when cladding is applied to public buildings and commercial properties like hotels and offices.
