Introduction

Cladding is the application of one material over another to provide a skin or layer. Cladding is used in building construction to provide insulation, weather resistance and to improve the aesthetics of the building.

Cladding can be made of any of a wide range of materials including wood, metal and composite materials

Cladding may also help to control noise.

Cladding can become a fire risk by design or material.
