Cladding your home – what are the results?


You want to make sure that your home is an attractive and comfortable environment to live in. It also helps if you can reduce the cost of living in the property. Cladding your home can help with all of these things. You may wonder just how durable cladding is, and whether it's safe to use.

In this article, we are going to talk about different types of cladding, and explain the positives and negatives. We are also going to explain why hiring a professional like Peter Bracey is a good idea. The experts can help you decide which type of cladding is best for your needs, and can make sure that it's fitted in a secure and safe manner.

Which cladding should you choose?

Any cladding material can help to insulate your home. This is a useful way of reducing your energy costs. Cladding also helps to protect the exterior walls of your home against damage caused by extreme weather conditions, such as damage to the paint work during hailstorms, or cracks to exterior decoration, due to high temperatures. If you live in an area where traffic is busy, you can also benefit from the noise reduction that comes with having cladding fitted. There are three main types of cladding material to choose from; vinyl, timber and UPVC. You will get benefits from them all; but, there are also some drawbacks. Let's take a look.

Vinyl cladding is often a good choice, from a budget point of view. It's generally the most affordable option. The potential downside is that this type of cladding may need to be replaced over time as it can warp and the colour can fade. Timber cladding is often the best fit, from an appearance point of view. But, if you choose timber cladding for your home, you need to be prepared to spend a significant amount of time on maintenance. If you do not do this the cladding can be highly susceptible to rotting.

UPVC cladding is the most durable option, so it's unlikely to need replacing for a considerable length of time. It's also easy to maintain. All you have to do is wipe it down using a clean damp cloth and cleaning fluid, to get rid of dirt and mildew. The one negative aspect of this type of cladding is the price. It's usually the most expensive choice, in terms of initial outlay.

The choice you make depends on your own personal circumstances. You have to consider your motives for having the cladding installed, as well as the budget you have available.



Why professional installation is important

You should always have cladding installed by a reputable professional. Check independent and online reviews and ask people for recommendations. Take some time to ensure that you make the right choice. It's important that you choose the right provider to do the work as poorly fitted cladding is not as effective when it comes to the benefits we have mentioned. It's also likely to need replacing sooner, and may be unsafe.

You can see the benefits that can be gained from having cladding fitted to your property, as well as the pros and cons of different cladding materials. If you choose to have cladding fitted, do not forget to invest in professional help.

What to do in case of Water Damage at Home

Water damage is one of the most expensive repairs to fix because it spreads at a rapid pace and saturates materials which will ultimately need to be replaced. This is such a common problem that restoration fees have skyrocketed to $2.5 billion annually in the United States, with the average homeowner paying $7,000 to repair the damages. One of the most expensive fees associated with water damage is paying a professional to remove mildew and mold that feeds on the damp materials. Black mold is incredibly dangerous for humans, and any area with mold greater than 3 square feet must be removed by a professional. The most important thing to do when you find water damage is to locate the source of the leak, assess the damage, and determine the appropriate means to repair the water leak and damage. You may visit this link to know more about mold remediation.

When pipes get old, washers easily break and compromise the seal of the waterline. These leaks can be difficult to spot until it’s too late, so you must know a few simple techniques to find a leak before it becomes a problem. One of the most common leaks associated with water damage is caused by pipes leading to the bathroom. These are often the most used water source in your home unless you are a dedicated chef cooking four-course meals. When toilets leak, there will be a distinct hissing sound coming from the tank. This hissing is the sound of water slowly draining from the tank, and you can begin to determine which part needs repairs. Clogged gutters are the most common problem not associated with broken pipes. This is a common problem in cities like Seattle, where there is heavy rainfall and deciduous trees constantly clogging your drains with leaves. When the water backs up it will have no place to go except into your roof. This is simply remedied by cleaning your gutters so the water can flow away from your home.

Assessing the damage is the most difficult task for an untrained homeowner. The first thing you will want to do is contain the leak. If you have a broken pipe somewhere in your home you must shut off the water to prevent further damage. You will need to determine if the water damage has compromised the structure of the building to ensure you don’t fall through your floor. You will then need to make a thorough inspection for mold and pay careful attention for strong smells of mildew.

The last step is determining how you should go about repairing the damage. Unless you are a handyman, you should not attempt to fix this damage by yourself. There could be dangerous mold hidden in the walls and you do not want to needlessly expose yourself to harmful spores. If you find the leak quickly, then a professional may be able to use special drying techniques to repair the damage rather than replace it. For severe damage, you must call a professional to fix the leak, and a restoration company to eradicate mold and restore the structure.
