Composite wall cladding is one of the fastest-growing segments of the building materials industry, and it’s easy to see why — this material is durable, affordable, and beautiful. Composite wall cladding can be used on any part of your home, from the outside of your home or office building to interior walls, ceilings, and floors. Though it’s become more common in recent years, it has been around since the 1960s and was originally developed by NASA as thermal insulation for space shuttles.
What are composite wall claddings?
Composite wall claddings are a composite material. The two main types of composite materials are cementitious (made of cement and aggregate) and fibrous (a combination of fibers, usually in the form of wood pulp). Composite wall claddings are a type of cementitious composite. They’re made up of inorganic aggregates such as sand, gravel, or crushed stone; the organic binder such as Portland cement or hydraulic lime; and water. You can find them in fiberglass-reinforced concrete (FRP), fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP), polyester/polystyrene foam board (EPS), polyurethane foam board (PUR), or polyethylene foam board (PE).

Where are they used?
Composite wall cladding is often used in kitchens and bathrooms due to their ease of cleaning and resistance to water damage. They’re also a good option for exterior walls because they don’t need painting or sealing, unlike cedar. Composite claddings are easy to install, requiring only the use of a utility knife. The only major downside is that they’re more expensive than other types of wood claddings. Unifloor’s composite claddings come with a 25-year warranty against rot, decay, warping and cracking.
How do I choose the right one for me?
