Whether you're looking to update the look of your existing property or need a façade cladding solution for a contemporary new home, you’re sure to find what you need in our Dura Cladding range.
How much cladding will I need for my project?
To find out how much cladding you’ll need to buy for your project, first decide on the orientation you want your cladding planks to run in – either vertically or horizontally, as this will affect your final quantities and will dictate whether you’ll need to purchase additional expansion trims to join planks side by side.
Once you’ve decided where you want your cladding situated, measure the length and width of the total area. Your best bet is to produce a bill of quantities based on a computer aided design (CAD) layout, taking into account the plank lengths of 3660m.
How much wastage should I build in for my cladding?
Most customers find that it is beneficial to build in a waste factor of 10-15% to account for the inevitable quantity of material that cannot be used due to cutting – this may be more or less depending on the number of cuts required to fit around awkward shapes. By taking these factors into account, all of your planks can be delivered in a single load, avoiding additional delivery charges.
How do I place an order for Dura Cladding?
Once you know how many cladding planks and trims you need based on the lengths and widths of each elevation you wish to clad, you should then decide if you also need any fire-rated battens or bearers on which to install your cladding. Our technical sales team can help define your requirements if you’re not completely sure how much to order. You can reach them to discuss your project or order your cladding from 08:30am Monday to 5pm Friday on +44 (0)1255 440299.
