What is architectural cladding?

It 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 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, this type of cladding has the potential to truly transform a structure’s appearance. We’re proud to offer a range of innovative materials including:

What are the benefits of architectural wall cladding?

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

Although first impressions count, your choice of 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 property 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 clients.


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 first line of defence against driving rain, powerful winds, and 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.
