The process of constructing a building involves many different layers in order to ensure that the internal features are protected from the wrath of Mother Nature. After all, strong winds and heavy rainfall can wreak havoc on the roof of a property, never mind the external structure. As a result, the design of most buildings will use a tool known as cladding in order to offer an extra layer of protection against the elements. Read on as the team here at Valent Roofing go over everything there is to know about rain screen cladding…

What is rain screen cladding?

In layman’s terms, rain screen cladding is a type of covering that is applied during construction to a new building or added over the top of existing cladding to a building that is already fully built. It is designed with a weather resistant finish in order to support the interior of the building and ensure that it remains well-ventilated without affecting the exterior aesthetics.

How cost-effective is rain screen cladding?

Although the concept of rain screen cladding sound complicated, it is actually incredibly simple to install as long as the pressure equalisation is taken into consideration. After all, trapped air will affect a property and its ventilation efficiency. In fact, investing in this type of cladding offers property owners a noticeable return on investment (ROI) as a well-maintained exterior can last for decades at a time which makes it a very cost-effective option.

What are the benefits of rain screen cladding?

As well as being friendly on the bank balance, rain screen cladding also offers property owners a variety of exciting benefits. For example, there are a variety of different colours and finishes to choose from which means that a building’s exterior can be designed with aesthetics in mind without becoming a carbon copy of another building that may be located nearby. In addition to this, the composite aluminium panels used by Valent Roofing are lightweight yet suitable for curved surfaces and are also fully recyclable once they reach the end of their lifespan.
