Sustainable design with WPC façade cladding

Façade cladding made of WPC is a modern, protective and attractive alternative to traditional house façades. The low-maintenance WPC façade system is both effective and weatherproof. It is also easy to install. It forms a protective layer outside a house and helps to facilitate energy efficiency inside it as well. WPC cladding is also becoming increasingly popular because it adds a stylish enhancement to attractive homes. Give your façade a fresh, individual look.

The strengths of WPC façade cladding

The material has a wide range of beneficial qualities thanks to its composition. WPC façade panels consist of wood, plastic and filling agents. This combination is used to make extremely long lasting façade cladding. WPC façade cladding is not subject to rotting, a feature that protects it from biological degradation and chemical decomposition. In addition to being robust and strong, WPC is highly flexible. This characteristic simplifies the job of installing the individual façade panels and the WPC planks used in the façades.  

WPC façade panels are also extremely weather-proof. As a result, residents can rest assured that the WPC façade cladding will reliably protect them from rain. They also do not have to worry about moisture seeping into their homes and the musty odours, bacteria and mould that can arise from it. The material will not expand during extreme weather conditions or splinter.  While moisture, cold and extreme heat are kept outside, the energy used inside the house and the resources related to it can be optimally and efficiently used and will be largely kept in the building.    

The polymer-wood composite comes in a range of appealing designs, colours and styles that you can choose from. The WPC façade cladding is treated with high-quality UV protective pigments and heat stabilizers, features that create a strong line of defence against intensive sunshine and other unfriendly weather elements. The material is very low maintenance and does not splinter or split. There is no need to paint as a result.

The weaknesses of WPC façade cladding

The initial costs of WPC façade cladding are somewhat higher than those of similar materials. But users can quickly recoup these costs because this extremely durable façade cladding lowers their energy and heating bills. Unfortunately, WPC does not possess the unique structure and texture of wood. As a result, it does not look and feel like wood upon close inspection. The feel of wood is certainly essential when it comes to furniture and doors. But such a feature plays a minor role for façade cladding.  

Are WPC façades more weather-proof than wooden façades?

In comparison to untreated domestic woods, WPC façade cladding is noted for its weather-proofness. As part of our production process, we lend special environmentally protective characteristics to the material. Some woods absorb moisture as a result of their reduced density. The wood then has to be regularly maintained at the very least to prevent grey patches from forming and rot. WPC façade cladding will require you to do much less maintenance.    

Is WPC façade cladding sustainable?

Even though it may include plastic, WPC façade is actually an extremely green material. The reasons are obvious: It has a long service life, facilitates environmentally responsible and resource-conserving usage of rooms and is low maintenance. We also pay close attention to ensure that the cladding is sustainably produced and obtain the wooden fibres used in the product from sustainably managed forests. The WPC façade cladding made by Deceuninck contains wood from PEFC-certified, sustainably managed forests. It is also made of recycled PVC. All of the material can be recycled, a feature that enables it to be used for different purposes in future. The VinylPlus label provides independent verification of the product’s sustainability.

The Twinson products made of high-quality wood-plastic composite material are your best choice for WPC façade cladding that will be used on the exterior of your property. It combines the strengths of polymers and wood, provides an impressively long service life, feels like natural wood and is easy to care for.

Installation of WPC façade cladding

WPC façade cladding is a breeze to install thanks to its clever design. In fact, it is so easy that a single individual can do the job with standard tools. 

  1. A substructure made of wood or aluminium is installed 40 centimetres to 50 centimetres from the masonry beneath it. Double latches are installed on the corners and outer ends of the cladding. 
  2. Aluminium profile bars are then screwed onto the wooden substructure. The starter, corner and transverse profiles follow. 
  3. The façade elements can also be easily attached with the help of a tongue & groove system. Specially developed clips are used to fasten and fix the panels into place. 
  4. A finishing element is attached once the final panel has been cut and installed.

A special clip that provides the appropriate space for expansion is used to connect two façade elements. A finishing element like an exterior element is also used for this purpose
