What are the best options between PVC, wood or fibre cement panels/planks for your façade?

Whether you are building or renovating, energy efficiency and heat retention is a key issue. A popular method is to install wall insulation on the outside of your property, but what kind of façade cladding should be placed over it? PVC, wood, fibre cement panels? This comparison should help you.

Your façade cladding must be able to withstand the elements, insects, algae and other moulds

Which best stands the test of time?

When considering weatherboard cladding, the two main considerations are always appearance, and safety. Will your cladding still look as good as the day you install it after 50 years of being exposed to bleaching sunshine, bad weather, insects and algae? And are you confident that your cladding is non-combustible, how will it hold up under extreme heat?

Durability of your façade is key, what's best - PVC, Wood or Fibre cement Panels?

Durability and performance

Construction standards are becoming increasingly strict and will be even more stringent in the future. You should factor this into your plans and clad your project with a material that is durable over time, guaranteeing the best possible thermal performance and has the lowest carbon footprint.
