SHINGLE CLADDING AUSTRALIA
WHAT IS SHINGLE CLADDING?
Shingle Cladding has the ultimate “wow” factor. Each panel is folded into interconnected tile shapes, frequently forming scale or diamond patterns.
From the bottom to the top of the wall, shingles are installed in courses, or rows, with each subsequent course overlapping the joint of the one before it. They’re usually sprayed in straight, single courses, but they can be utilized in a variety of ways to create fun, ornamental effects.
Brass and Copper
- This technique utilizes less metal in comparison with the batten (roll cap) method
- Easy to install
- Suitable for commercial and residential projects
- Create dynamic and unique patterns by adjusting size and shape
- Achieve patterns not possible with any other sheet metal system
- Minimal maintenance compared to other cladding materials, such as rendered brick and timber
All profiles should be placed by a qualified and experienced cladding installer, according to Cladding Walls Australia. Cladding Walls Australia offers all complimentary flashings and cappings.
A construction-grade base is required for all Shingle applications. When working with zinc, a constant ventilation gap of 20 mm beneath the substrate is required for wall cladding applications, and a 40 mm gap is required for roof installations (note this is for zinc only). Before laying cladding panels, the substrate should be encased with a moisture-proof membrane. Shingles should be repaired with approved countersunk screws.
