You love your home, so what are you doing to protect it?

What is architectural cladding?

Architectural cladding is the application of one material over another to provide a layer of “skin” around your building’s external facade.

This addition can be seen in residential homes, commercial properties, apartments to hotels, industrial zones and beyond. More than an aesthetic benefit, cladding provides a host of advantages that cover security, safety as well as style.

Delivering thermal insulation and resistance against Melbourne’s notoriously fickle weather, architectural cladding has the potential to truly transform a structure’s appearance. Although aluminium and vinyl remain popular cladding options, we’re proud to offer a range of innovative materials including:

  • Aluminium
  • Copper
  • Zinc
  • Steel

What are the benefits of architectural cladding?

Architectural cladding is essential to protect your home or commercial space from the outside conditions. That said, the days of functional cladding options are long gone. Modern options provide a truly eclectic mix of materials that can be customised to suit any project decor or style.

Advantages of architectural cladding include:

✓ Non-transmission of sound

✓ Improved internal ambience

✓ Striking facade aesthetics

✓ Safeguard against weather conditions

✓ Temperature control

✓ Increased property value

✓ Low-maintenance finishes

✓ Boost fire safety

At AMC, we believe transforming your property goes beyond surface beauty. Maybe you’re looking to transform your home by combining modern cladding with your home’s traditional architecture. Or, you may want innovative insulation to help lower your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint.

Whatever your needs, our team of experienced architectural roof and facade cladding professionals can help customise your project to deliver the bold, powerful finish you’re looking for.

How much does architectural cladding cost?

The cost of wall cladding will vary based on the materials used, the complexity of the project and the scale of the installation. You’ll also need to factor in long-term costs for an accurate picture. For example, though timber cladding is typically the most economical in terms of installation costs, this cladding will require ongoing maintenance and treatment (and may need to be replaced). Over time, this can become an expensive option.

For an average cost per m2, consult the table below.

Cladding or Service Type Average Cost per m2
Copper $500 to $600 per m2
VM Zinc / EL Zinc / Rheinzink $450 to $450 per m2
Plywood Sub-Construction $90 per m2
Top Hat Sub-Construction $50 per m2
Colorbond Standing Seam Wall $280 to $320 per m2
Aluminium $350 to $400 per m2

How to choose the best cladding option

If you’re preparing to choose cladding for your residential or commercial space, you’ll need to make your choice based on more than appearance alone. Although first impressions count, your choice of architectural cladding will impact your property for years (and decades) to come.

Here are some of the key considerations you’ll need to take into account:


Your home is a reflection of you. That makes your choice in cladding crucial to project the bold, striking finish you desire. Consider colour and texture as well as the surrounding architecture. Do you want a raw and natural look? Or, are you after a pop of colour and a powerful differentiator from every home on your block? Working with your local cladding experts in Melbourne can help you uncover the aesthetic vision that’s best suited to you and your home.


Living in Melbourne offers an unrivalled lifestyle with every amenity on your doorstep whether you call Toorak, Hawthorn or the Mornington Peninsula home. There’s just one constant challenge – the weather. Your choice of cladding is your home’s first line of defence against driving rain, powerful winds, and the challenging elements. On top of this, your choice of cladding can help regulate internal temperature which means less reliance on the A/C and more control over light, noise and heat.


The last thing you want is to be scheduling maintenance, repair or replacement for your external cladding. For this reason, seemingly economical choices like softwood timber cladding may end up costing more over time than a more robust cladding like copper which requires little maintenance or upkeep. Whether your walls are prone to direct sunlight, shoreline wind or the odd backyard cricket ball, consider strength when choosing your cladding.

How to find Melbourne’s most professional architectural cladding experts

Whether you live in Albert Park, South Yarra or the Melbourne CBD, finding the best cladding service in Victoria is never as simple as jumping on Google. As a property owner it’s natural you want to do your due diligence to ensure your budget goes towards an experienced and professional team able to manage all aspects of your project.

When choosing Melbourne’s leading architectural cladding experts, be sure to ask the following questions:

  • “What is the best cladding option for my property?” – Experienced companies can suggest the highest quality architectural wall cladding to deliver maximum value.
  • “What is the best material for my cladding?” – Though metal is widely considered the most durable cladding, your team should break down your options (steel, copper, zinc, aluminium).
  • “What level of resistance comes with my cladding?” – Cladding can offer acoustic insulation, thermal insulation and fire resistance.
  • “Is my cladding under warranty and who provides it?” – Find out if your warranties are guaranteed by the product manufacturer or installer for lasting peace of mind.
  • “What environmental impact will my cladding have?” – Find out what impact the manufacture, installation and maintenance of your cladding choice will have
