For Your Outdoor Project
When building or renovating your home, cladding is an important part of the process. Not only is it the first thing you see when you approach a home, with the right cladding, it can create a visually stunning home that has character and individual style.
However, cladding provides other key factors for your home. That’s why it is important to select a cladding that not only looks good but functions well too.
What does that mean? Cladding is designed to protect your home, cover the frame and provide aesthetic appeal, but it also plays a role in the liveability of the home. It can function to enhance your home’s sound transmission, increase thermal qualities to the home or provide fire and termite resistance.
Depending on the cladding you select, it may require ongoing maintenance or, like many modern claddings, require little to no maintenance at all. While budget plays an important role, so too does function.

Yet, with many of the claddings on the market offering multiple benefits at different price points, finding the right cladding can be a matter of elimination. A fibre cement cladding can give a modern edge, a hardwood timber will age and blend with your surroundings, and a wood-composite provides a timber-look without the maintenance of natural timber. Whichever you opt for, make sure you take your time to think about what cladding is best for your home.
You may be thinking, there are endless options out there for cladding, where do I start? Of course, when choosing a cladding it is best to look, touch and feel the cladding before you make a decision. That’s why Bowens has an extensive range of cladding so you can be sure you’ve selected the right timber for your home.
Our cladding displays are located at Port Melbourne, Brunswick, Croydon, Bentleigh East, Mount Evelyn, Epping, Taylors Lakes, Laverton North and Hallam. Alternately, please browse our cladding products online.
