Who Installs Cladding?

Last Updated: Mar 2, 2012 by

Topic: Cladding

Cladding can be a very valuable tool both inside and outside of the home in order to protect a surface as well as improve its look.  For cladding to work as it should however, it needs to be correctly installed.  That’s why we’ve put this article together, so you know who you should get to install cladding to ensure that you get the best result possible.  For more information about cladding installation, talk to your local cladding specialist.

Builders Can Install Cladding

In many cases, it is recommended that cladding is installed by a professional builder.  This is because it needs to meet stringent rules and regulations once installed such as Australian Standards, the Building Code of Australia, and fire and safety regulations.  Your builder should be fully licensed, experienced, and hold all of the necessary insurances such as public liability insurance and professional indemnity insurance.

Specialist Cladding Professionals

Most cladding suppliers will have a list of cladding installers that you can choose from to install the new cladding on your home.  As with the above, these installers hold full licenses qualifying them as registered building practitioners.  The supplier will make the arrangements for installation of your cladding, setting a time for the installer to come and anything else that is needed.  If your supplier does not make all of the arrangements for installation, they will provide you with a list of installers that they have used previously and recommend.

If you are working with a specific cladding system that requires special training in order for it to be installed correctly, your supplier will be able to arrange for an installer that is fully trained in a particular cladding system or alternatively provide you with a list of people that are.

How to Check Credentials

If you are at all unsure about the professional that will be installing your cladding, before giving them the go ahead to start work, check out their licensing details with the relevant authority.  In most cases, you can do a check through your states Fair Trading body.
