8 Advantages of Metal Cladding over Concrete or
Masonry Cladding

Metal cladding has become quite mainstream today.
Its strength and durability notwithstanding,
metal cladding is also preferred for its
appearance, a lightweight compared to concrete or
masonry cladding and most importantly, easy
installation.
One of the lesser spoken about metal cladding
advantages is versatility. This allows metal
cladding panels to be made and installed in a
wide variety of sizes, shapes, colours, finishes
and textures.
Here are eight of the most notable advantages of
metal cladding installation over other types of
cladding.
3
Advantages of metal cladding installation
Metal cladding is that it can be installed
anywhere in a building.
They can cover all of the buildings exterior or
just highlight certain parts of the building to
make them centre of attraction.
Metal panels can also be used for roof decking,
creating details like soffits, fascia and trims
to enhance the buildings looks.
A lot of builders nowadays are opting for metal
panels instead of traditional materials like
drywall or wood.
4
They are made from diverse materials
Metal sheet cladding panels are made from a
variety of materials that suit all types of
building designs. 
Steel, stainless steel, galvanised steel,
aluminium, zinc alloys and even copper are used
to create metal panels
You can add different colours and textures or
enhance the inherent metal finish. 
5
They are immensely durable
Durability is one of the principal advantages of
metal cladding panels.
A metal panelled cladding is remarkably strong
and highly resilient to water damage,
electrochemical reactions and corrosion.
Metal cladding panels are also much better at
resisting damage.
Overall, metal panels boast of an impressively
long lifespan while requiring almost no
maintenance.
6
They are made from diverse materials
For exterior cladding, metal panels are
significantly lighter than their masonry or
concrete counterparts.
Since these components cost lower, the overall
construction cost and complexity of installation
are reduced as well.
Metal panels made of certain materials offer a
lot more rigidity than drywall and other
materials while weighing much lower.
7
They are immensely durable
Durability is one of the principal advantages of
metal cladding panels.
Metal panelled cladding is remarkably strong and
highly resilient to water damage,
Metal cladding panels are also much better at
resisting damage caused by impacts like hail or
other flying objects.
8
They weigh considerably lower
When used for exterior cladding, metal panels are
significantly lighter than their masonry or
concrete counterparts.
since these components cost lower, the overall
construction cost and complexity of installation
are reduced as well
Metal panels made of certain materials offer a
lot more rigidity than drywall and other
materials while weighing much lower.
9
They are highly malleable
Modern design makes extensive use of elements
like 3D objects, curves and other complex shapes
to create a distinct identity for a building.
Metal panels can be bent, twisted and stretched
to create any shape or curve.
This is only possible because of the flexible and
malleable nature of metals which greatly enhances
design possibilities.
10
They are easy to install
The metal cladding process is notably quicker and
uncomplicated compared to brick, block or
concrete cladding
Metals panels can be manufactured in large and
lightweight sections, which makes it easy to
cover a greater area
several metal cladding systems feature special
fastening mechanisms that further quicken the
installation process.
11
They are inexpensive
Using metal cladding panels for the exterior is
considerably cheaper than using masonry or
concrete options, especially when seen in the
context of labour and material costs. 
Their durability also results in cost savings in
the long term.
The cost of using metal panels for interior
cladding is similar to that of other materials
but equation changes when you compare the
durability and low maintenance requirements.
12
They are more sustainable
All types of metal cladding contain recycled
content in varying degrees which makes them quite
eco-friendly.
Metal cladding panels bring a lot of benefits to
the table and are changing the way buildings are
designed and constructed. 
They are also easily recyclable since they are
manufactured using common metals.
