Composite or uPVC, which type of cladding is best for my home?

When it comes to making the exterior of a home appear more stylish, cladding is simply one of the best possible solutions available to you. In addition to enhancing your home’s exterior, it will provide protection from the weather and will help it to retain more heat, if fitted in conjunction with insulation. Here at Roofline Solutions, we offer 2 different types of cladding: composite and uPVC. So you can decide which is best for your home, we’ve created this short comparison guide. We have also created a video, which you can view via the link here.

Composite cladding

Designed to achieve minimal expansion and contraction, composite cladding will retain its quality over time. As it contains no organic material, it will also never absorb moisture and is immune to rot and insect damage. As it features a simple interlocking mechanism, we can fit it on your home quickly and efficiently. The less time spent installing it means the less time we need to spend on your property.

Not only has the composite material in use been sourced sustainably, but it’s also 100% recyclable. Therefore, it’s an excellent option for anyone who is looking to reduce their carbon footprint.

Composite cladding is more traditional in appearance because of a beautiful, embossed woodgrain finish. This resembles the look of timber grain and ensures it looks very appealing. It comes in six New England colours, namely Moondust Grey, Oyster White, Pigeon Blue, Taupe, Soft Green & Anthracite Grey, so a variety of stylish facades can be achieved.

uPVC cladding

Resistant to discolouration, our uPVC cladding will maintain its finish even after continual UV exposure. It also will not flake, peel or rot, ensuring it will continue to look good year after year. uPVC can have a smooth or embossed finish so it resembles the appearance of timber. It also comes in a range of colours to suit most property designs. Choose from three different cladding styles: Shiplap, Open V (also called Tongue and Groove) and Feather Edge.

It’s worth mentioning that our cladding solutions can be maintained with ease. Simply give them the odd wipe using soapy water and a soft cloth and they’ll continue to look great.
