Plastic cladding can have a number of benefits.
- Plastic cladding can lead to the improvement of the general appearance of a building, covering other materials and changing its feel and looks.
- The level of noise that penetrates through walls can be reduced by adding another layer of cladding, and this can be enhanced further by adding other materials between the cladding and wall.
- Cladding can be a substitute for tiles on the walls of bathrooms. It is easy to instal and maintain and requires no grouting. Plastic can be a good choice because of its waterproof quality. There is a wide range of bathroom wall panels and plastic cladding to choose from.
- Plastic cladding has good availability.
- It has low maintenance requirements and is durable.
- It is easy to instal.
- It is available in a range of colours and so does not need to be painted.
It can be less expensive to purchase plastic cladding direct rather than have a contractor purchase it. However, it is important to use a reputable supplier, and to agree any delivery fees in advance.
