Uses For Recycled Plastic Cladding
External wall cladding can play an essential role in the construction process for many different structures and homes. As well as this, a bonus of wall cladding is that it can be added at any time, to alter appearances as well as provide other benefits.
Today, we’re looking at the benefits of recycled plastic cladding for walls, and the importance of opting for recycled plastic materials.
The benefits of recycled plastic cladding
If you’re looking to invest in cladding, there’s no better material than recycled plastic from Kedel when it comes to durability, appearance and safety.
If you’re looking for cladding for houses, there are many benefits to recycled plastic cladding that make it a better alternative to timber. For example, Kedel recycled plastic requires no maintenance throughout its lifetime, whereas timber roughly needs replacing once every 7 years, as well as maintenance every year. This lowers the maintenance cost of housing and housing developments, and money is made back in as little as 2-5 years.
It’s also much less flammable than wood, making it safer for use on homes than timber.
In public spaces and commercial units, recycled plastic cladding can help solve problems caused by vandalism, with its vandal-proof properties that not only prevent vandalism in the first place but make it easy for graffiti to be removed.
As well as this, there’s also a major environmental benefit to recycled plastic. Made with recycled materials such as plastic cups and CD cases, recycled plastic from Kedel uses 66% less energy than new plastic, helping users maintain a low carbon footprint.
