Sydney housing trends – House Cladding

Sydney housing trends – House Cladding

An exciting trend in the Sydney new home building and home renovation market is the combining of house cladding with other materials, such render, to create texture and to define different areas of your home.

Vinyl cladding used on its own is a stylish option for homes looking for the classic charm of a weatherboard style home. However combined with render that comes in a range of classic and modern colours, can create a stylish contemporary look that has a timeless appeal.

One of the many benefits of vinyl cladding is the extra insulation properties it brings to your home. If you choose to mix house cladding with render, your render can also offer insulation properties. Based in Sydney, Young and Bracey can install Foamular Extruded Polystyrene Insulation Boards on your home. This is an ultra-tough and impact resistant board with very high R-values. Once installed we cover it with a lightweight polymer modified render system to give you an impact resistant designer render finish in a wider range of colours.

Young & Bracey are offering an amazing offer of $1500 off when you vinyl clad your whole house.

Stop leaking cash this winter thanks to poor insulation

Stop leaking cash this winter thanks to poor insulation

The cost of keeping warm in winter adds significantly to power and gas bills for families across Sydney as the news tells us of Artic Vortex’s bringing freezing temperatures and blanketing suburbs not generally known for snow, in thick layers.

Effective insulation for your home is important to maintain even indoor temperatures and keep the heat inside.

Duratuff Vinyl Wall Cladding from Sydney based Young and Bracey has the ability to significantly add to the insulation qualities of a home. When installed correctly over existing timber or fibro walls, or onto new framework with appropriate underlay, the vinyl cladding will create an air gap which acts as a highly effective insulator and increasing the R value of your home insulation.

The "R" value is the measure of the product's resistance to heat transfer and is a guide to its performance as a heat insulator.

Higher R-values are more effective at maximising your energy savings and comfort. The higher the "R" value, the more effective the insulation is in reducing heat flow in or out of your home and in stabilising the temperature in your home.

If in-wall insulation is used in conjunction with foamed-backed Duratuff Vinyl Cladding then an R-Value of around 3 should be gained. Significantly exceeding an approximate R-Value of 1.4 when the cladding is installed over framework with an underlay of fibro or plywood.

This winter, stop burning up cash by letting heat escape. Minimise your power or gas bills by adding effective insulation to your home.
