Metal Wall Cladding

Steel metal cladding is an incredibly versatile and durable product that can be used to suit all kinds of homes. Metal wall cladding can be applied to both external and interior walls, depending on your needs and preferences.

The benefits of architectural cladding are being enjoyed by more and more Australian architects, builders, and homeowners.

Exterior metal wall cladding provides your home with additional protection from the elements. Steel cladding, when installed by a professional and experienced team, is both weather proof and fire retardant. This is an incredibly important consideration in Australia, where our climate can include extreme weather conditions. Steel cladding will not be set alight in the event of a fire, neither will it let rain or snow enter the building.

Metal panels will enhance the architectural style of your home.

Steel cladding adds a striking and beautiful element to the aesthetic appeal of any building. It is available in a wide range of colours and finishes, including a matt finish. Steel is a versatile material, and can be formed into different shapes and a wide range of profiles according to your design preferences. Metal cladding can be successfully integrated with a wide range of architectural styles and materials.

Both the installation and maintenance of metal wall cladding is cost-effective.

In comparison to many other types of architectural cladding, steel cladding is lightweight. This means that it is quick and easy to install, which costs you less in terms of time, effort, and labour. In addition, minimal maintenance is required over its long life-span, further reducing your costs. It is important to keep in mind that wall cladding has a much longer life-span than many other cladding choices.

Steel wall cladding is a sustainable choice.

Opting for steel is an eco-friendly option. Many steel cladding products already contain recycled materials. In addition, the cladding lasts a long time, further reducing use of resources. At the end of its lifespan, all steel is 100% recyclable, so none of your steel cladding need end up in a landfill.

At Icon, we use Colorbond steel cladding, made in Australia by BlueScope steel.

Having worked extensively with Colorbond’s metal roof and wall products over many years, we can attest to the superior quality of Colorbond steel. In fact, our experienced team only uses Colorbond steel for all metal roofing, metal reroofing, and metal wall cladding projects. When it comes to metal wall cladding, there is no better option for Australian homes.

Metal wall cladding by Colorbond will last much longer in comparison to other cladding options.

This alone makes it the best possible investment when it comes to architectural cladding. In addition, Colorbond steel is available in 22 different colours, including several matt finishes. Colorbond allows you to mix and match colours with your roof, wall cladding, fascia boards, downpipes, and roof gutters. This variety means that you can choose the best colour – or combination of colours – to enhance the architectural style of your home.

Choose the product with advanced technology for enhanced sustainability.

If you are concerned about sustainability, Colorbond has developed Thermatech solar reflectance technology. This means that Colorbond steel reflects more of the sun’s radiant light. This in turn, reduces you need for air conditioning, lowering your bill and decreasing your use of resources.

A striking aesthetic and an impressive energy efficiency rating will boost the value of your home!

When you take all the benefits of metal wall cladding into account, it is clear that your property value will increase. Homes that have a good energy efficiency rating are increasingly in demand. Add stylish aesthetics to this, and the rental and resale value of your home will increase substantially.
