Is composite cladding sustainable?

Dedicated to looking after the environment as best we can, sustainability really matters to us at SEH BAC. We know it matters to you too, which is why we offer some of the most sustainable, energy efficient home improvement products around, including composite cladding. So, if you’re wondering how sustainable modern composite cladding really is, this blog is for you!

Is composite cladding eco friendly?

Yes! Not only are all the materials used to make it 100% recyclable, but our composite cladding products also minimise carbon emissions escaping from the building. Made slightly thicker than PVC cladding, this innovative weatherproof ‘skin’ is ideal for protecting homes positioned on the South East coast against the harshest weather conditions.

More sustainability features of our composite cladding products

  • Composite cladding requires less energy to produce

Utilising inorganic materials that are 100% recyclable eliminates the additional energy needed to cut, transport and rework traditional timber cladding products.

  • Composite cladding manufactured in the UK

Another notable feature of our sustainable composite cladding products includes UK manufacturing, as less travel reduces our carbon footprint.

  • Low maintenance composite cladding

Boasting an impressive lifespan of at least 35 years, durable composite cladding never requires painting or treating with preservatives; reducing the lasting effects harmful chemicals can have on the environment. Furthermore, maintenance and sustainability go hand in hand, with low maintenance features like these reducing the environmental impact further and eliminating waste.
