The difference between wooden or plastic façade cladding is currently not in appearance, but in the properties. Plastic has undergone many developments in recent years, so that plastic can hardly be distinguished from the real natural wood. With printed wood grain, the application of structured sheets and the use of color technologies, plastic wood has hit the throne as a finish to the façade.
Where in the past the façade was finished to protect the construction and home from outside influences, such as the weather. Wall cladding is now mainly a taste problem that is partly seen as an investment. Also a cost-saving plate because durable façade cladding can be easily insulated.
A sustainable investment
Plastic or another durable material meets the recent trend in the construction industry, called; ‘Circular building’. This means that the building materials can be completely reused. Plastic has a very long life, is a sustainable choice and can be 100% recycled. This means less environmental impact, but above all a sustainable investment to do! In addition to the sustainable aspect, façade renovation with plastic is a good investment. New durable and low-maintenance façade panels will increase the value of the house or building.
Never paint again
Wood is a natural product that adapts to the natural influences. For example, it is necessary to properly maintain wood to prevent future defects. With wood it is generally known that every 5 years a large maintenance (painting) or renovating is required.
Plastic, on the other hand, will be less affected, giving it a much longer life. Plastic wall cladding is usually finished with a top layer or a foil to protect the panels. This finish ensures that plastic never has to be dyed again. The panels retain their color much better than wood, and last much longer without the radiation underneath. With plastic wall cladding, painting is a thing of the past. However, it is advisable to clean the plastic façade panels at least once a year with a simple soa
The top layer or foil not only ensures minimal maintenance, but also gives the plastic façade panels a certain appearance. The top layer or foil consists of a structure that can imitate the appearance of different types of wood. Douglas and Red Cedar are forests that are now perfectly reproduced, the difference is not visible.
The advantages of wood are thus taken over by plastic. The disadvantages of wood that does not occur in the plastic. In brief; wood is thrown off the throne like a universal finishing material because it is overtaken by plastic at every level.
