Removing asbestos during a remodel

We bought our house knowing it needed a fair bit of work, but we could never have guessed how complicated the job would get in the end. It turns out not only do we have asbestos in the walls, but also, at some point, the previous owners had some asbestos insulation put in the roof. There are a lot more precautions that we need to make as result but, I'll feel a lot better knowing we aren't cooking and eating our meals near asbestos. Our remodeling contractor has been great and has stepped us through the whole process. Join us on our remodeling journey!

Why Modern Homeowners Are Gravitating Towards Vinyl Cladding

by Joanne Sullivan

Your house protects you and your family from climate extremes, but it's the house exterior that gets battered by the elements. Installed correctly, house cladding will provide your house with a layer of protection against the outside elements. Cladding can be any material that is installed on the exterior surfaces of your home to prevent weather damage to the building.

Many different material options are available for cladding installation. Each cladding material has unique features, pros and cons that have to be weighed up to determine if it's the right choice for your home. Vinyl cladding is a top choice for Aussie homeowners because it offers superb advantages when used for house cladding installation.

Continue reading to discover some of the key advantages of installing vinyl cladding in your house.

Vinyl cladding provides adequate weather protection.

A good cladding product should protect your house from the various weather extremes of your home's location. Vinyl is a popular choice for Australian homeowners because it can hold up well against almost any kind of climate.

Since it isn't made up of wood, vinyl doesn't splinter, warp, rot or suffer insect damage. It also doesn't become rusty or corrode like metal. Vinyl's resistance to destructive weather elements makes it an excellent choice for homes across the country.

Vinyl cladding holds its colour well.

If you're like most homeowners, you care about the exterior appearance and beauty of your home. Home exteriors that look beautiful give visitors and passers-by a positive impression of you and also increase the market value of the property.

Vinyl cladding comes in a huge selection of styles and colours to ensure you can find a product that matches the architectural design of your home and increases the kerb appeal of the entire property.

While vinyl cladding will eventually fade, though it will hold its colour for many years to come despite constant exposure to the elements. This eliminates the need to repaint or re-stain your cladding after every few years.

Vinyl cladding is a cost-saving option.

If you're on a tight budget and are concerned about the cost of cladding installation, then vinyl cladding is a suitable option for your home.

Compared to other cladding options available on the construction market these days, vinyl is one of the most cost-saving options. Vinyl cladding is quite cheap to buy and allows you to realise further cost savings by installing it yourself.
