Cladding is the outside layer of your building that provides thermal insulation, weather resistance, and noise control. Done right, it also improves your buildings appearance and value.

What makes Fort Sands cladding services unique?

Have you ever hear anyone say that they love cladding? Well, now you have. Cladding is the application of one material over another to provide layers that give thermal insulation and weather resistance, and to improve the appearance of buildings. Cladding can help with noise protection. Cladding can become a fire risk by design or material, both of which we have expertise in planning for.


Exterior walls can be finished with a wide array of materials and techniques. Many exterior wall finishes can increase property value, and many options are available to protect from fire, extreme heat and cold.


The design of good cladding includes many different dimensions: control of air leakage, control of condensation, insulation, water prevention, water drainage, thermal movement, fire spread control, ease of installation, attachments and fixings, cleaning, maintenance, remedial work, resilience, strength and durability.
