If you’re looking to give the exterior of your property a durable, sustainable, and high-quality upgrade, you can’t go wrong with zinc wall cladding. But how do you know if it’s finally time to make the plunge? It may be time to upgrade your exterior if you notice:
Over time, sun, rain, and wind will take their toll on any home’s exterior, leading to visible warping and bulging. If you notice anything starting to lose its appearance, it may be time to replace it.
This only applies to wood cladding, but it’s important to take care of rot fast. Not only does it look bad, but it can also spread quickly and compromise the structural integrity of your property.
Cracking or holes
Noticeable holes or cracks in your cladding aren’t just an eyesore: they’re also a clear indication that your cladding isn’t working as it should and that it should be replaced.
Over time, UV rays can cause your cladding to fade. This isn’t just an appearance issue, as fading can also be a sign of more significant wear and tear.
High energy costs
Finally, if the energy costs have gone up, it’s a good indicator that your cladding is no longer insulating as it should.
The cost of a zinc cladding installation will vary based on many factors including:
The service provided including how much cladding is supplied and how difficult the installation is
The complexity of the project with strange shapes or sizes requiring more customization and higher costs
Scope of work such as whether you require only cladding or also sub-construction?
That said, for VM Zinc, EL Zinc, and Rheinzinc, you can expect to pay between $400-450/sqm.
How long does it take to install zinc wall cladding?
Overall, zinc wall cladding can generally be installed in one week or less. That said, there are many factors that need to be taken into consideration during the installation process to make sure that no damage, color variations, or deformities occur.
Specifically, zinc installers should always wear gloves and long sleeves, as perspiration can leave marks on the zinc that last quite a while. Additionally, professionals must consider:
Ambient temperature since colder weather can make zinc brittle
Underlayment to prevent water penetration and allow the zinc to expand and contract freely with changing temperatures
Proper cleaning of the zinc itself
How can you identify a professional service provider?
You need an expert that will:
Focus on customer service
Have the systems in place to capture all the important details related to your architectural project
Be able to customize your cladding and roofing systems
Be compliant with the highest Australian Standards
Offer transparency in pricing and process.
