Wood cladding is a multi-faceted process that covers the exterior of any building or structure with a layer of premium material. It provides thermal insulation and protection against harsh environments. This exterior surface often also controls how elements hit or fall on a surface. Wood cladding
is an exterior finish for a structure that is made from wood. Several types of Wood cladding are available, from engineered wood panels to traditional clapboard siding. Many home supply stores stock wood cladding products and can order specialty products by request. It is also possible to order materials directly from a manufacturer or to salvage materials from building sites and structures being torn down. Cladding is also sometimes referred to as the skin or envelope of the building. It’s a layer of material that wraps the outside of the building. This provide some essential protection from the different elements. It also prevents water intrusion into the structure and add layers of insulation and used to keep internal temperatures stable.

Wood Cladding Maintenance
Before applying any sort of protective coating to the cladding, ensure that the wood is clean. Cladding is generally used on the exterior of a building. For that reason, it’s likely going to experience many weather conditions.
Therefore, it’s best to use a coating that has both water and UV-resistant. This will help prevent rot, mold, and structural damage from occurring.
The best method of treatment is prevention. If you have a regular maintenance schedule and keep an eye out for anything amiss, you will keep the wood cladding
looking like new for many years to come.
