Dress Up Your Home with Exterior Cladding

Everyone wants to protect their home from the harshness of weather and the general wear and tear of external factors. It is for this reason that exterior cladding has long been a practice among homeowners.

Cladding is the outermost layer of buildings and other structures such as houses. It acts as a protective layer by separating a structure from exterior elements, thereby making it last longer and less susceptible to damage.
