Street appeal

Back to news
The sleek, contemporary aesthetic of metal cladding has firmly secured its place as one of the hottest trends in housing facades in both the metropolitan and regional markets, and getting the ‘look’ may be easier than you think.

Easy-to-install, low maintenance and cost effective, there is little wonder why design savvy and quality conscious home owners are increasingly utilising metal cladding options when creating their ‘dream home’.

The epitome of minimalist industrial living, metal cladding was once solely associated with architecturally designed buildings.

Product innovations such as MCS Cladding’s Nailstrip and Interlocking panel profiles now means that this stunning design can be easily installed without fanfare, at an affordable price point.

These profiles are made from quality materials such as COLORBOND®, zintek® or GALVABOND® which each offer unique design flexibility to help the homeowner create their desired look.

The Nailstrip and Interlocking panels are installed by screwing directly into the substrate with each panel overlapping to conceal the previous fixing. Edges are finished with flashing designed to support ease of installation and act as a simple waterproofing mechanism.
