There’s nothing quite like timber cladding for creating a stunning home exterior. Timber has a refined look, something that speaks of sophistication and quality. It has had a slight renaissance in the last few years with everything from furniture to building work being completed in timber. But that doesn’t mean it is without its problems.
Timber requires a lot of maintenance, including regularly re-staining the timber and cleaning it to keep it free from rot and fungi. While there is nothing wrong with this, it can be a drain on your time. Additionally, should part of your timber cladding start to rot, you’ll find that replacing it can quickly become incredibly expensive.
Here at Bliby Plastics, we can offer you high-quality imitation timber out of uPVC. Not only is cladding just as realistic and durable as real timber cladding, but it also comes with a range of benefits that make it the perfect choice for any busy, low maintenance home.
Why Choose Imitation Black Ash Cladding?
Significantly More Affordable, yet Aesthetically Pleasing
Cost is one of the key reasons for choosing imitation cladding over the real thing. In recent years the development of technology has meant that uPVC cladding can look just as realistic as the original timber. But this doesn’t just mean that you have a range of choices, it also means that you can choose a more affordable material to create the same high-quality effect.
Even though timber is considered a more affordable material, it is still quite expensive, particularly when you need as much of it as you would for cladding. uPVC offers you another option, the chance to create your dream home exterior without needing to break the bank. For budget home improvements, it really is the ideal choice.
Not only is uPVC cladding more affordable in the short term but also in the long term too. You might think that timber lasts longer than plastic, but this perception is incorrect and our uPVC cladding will maintain its quality for much longer than even the best of its timber counterparts. This means that not only are you saving money on the initial installation, but also on the maintenance and the replacement costs; it really is a long-term investment.
More Environmentally Friendly
Plastic has over the years become synonymous with damaging the environment. After all, single-use plastic can easily be thrown away and find its way into the ocean where it can wreak havoc on the ecosystem. Single-use plastic can also cause all sorts of problems in landfills and it takes thousands of years to decompose. But uPVC cladding is not single-use plastic. In fact, it is designed to last for many years without needing to be replaced and when you do decide to replace it, uPVC can be easily recycled, so it should never end up in the landfill at all.
On the other hand, timber requires cutting down trees, and unethical timber harvesting practices can cause more damage to the environment than the creation of long-lasting uPVC cladding. Additionally, because timber is heavier than uPVC, it will create a higher carbon footprint during transportation. Its carbon footprint isn’t necessarily worth the look that you’re getting, especially when uPVC cladding looks the same.
