Is a lack of texture and dimension making your bathroom look ‘dry’ in an unpleasant way? Wet area cladding could be your solution.
Wet areas are the rooms or spaces containing sanitary fixtures and appliances – including bathrooms and en suites, toilets, laundries, kitchens, entries, and even garages. They are subject to high levels of moisture from direct wetting, high humidity levels, and condensation. Poor wet area design or installation can increase the risk of slips & slides and can raise other safety hazards. Design and building faults can also lead to damage in building structure or finishes – such as rot in framing, deterioration/disintegration of linings, flooring & cabinetry, and peeling paint. With good design, detailing, and installation of waterproof layers and impervious finishes, wet areas can be made durable, healthy, safe, and comfortable. If renovating or rebuilding the wet areas in your home is on the list this summer, it’s time you considered Fibre cement internal wall cladding as your option.
What is interior wall cladding?
Cladding is a process of layering one material over another. Wall cladding simply means to layer material over a wall. There are several materials available that can be used to layer the walls, depending on the requirement; a Fibre cement sheet is one of the best. You get a wide variety to choose from to give a new look and feel to your walls such as bricks, stones, wood, marble, metal, etc. Most modern washrooms and bathrooms use wall claddings to create an exotic & spacious look - something which has limitations with tile.
Why should I go for Fibre cement cladding when I have other options?
While Fibre cement boards have always been the prime choice of architects for external wall cladding purposes, they are also a smart choice for interiors in areas that are prone to constant contact with moisture. As a back liner, a Fibre cement board provides a suitable base for laying ceramic tiles in wet areas. With a proper framed structure, EcoPro Fibre cement claddings can take the load of wall-mounted closets, washbasin, split air conditioner unit, etc. Listed below are some of the major advantages you get when choosing Fibre cement claddings
Since Fibre cement cladding boards are thinner and more streamlined than traditional construction methods, the internal floor area can be utilized more judiciously leaving you more space for consumption.
Resistance to mold:
Fibre cement claddings are not only water-resistant but also resist the growth of molds. This also makes it less susceptible to slips and slides.
Unlike tiles, Fibre cement claddings are strong and durable and do not crack easily.
Since claddings come in prebuilt boards, setting up frames and installing the walls take far less time & effort than brick and mortar construction. Not to mention there is no need to strengthen the walls by watering them, again time saved!
Since Fibre cement does not retain dust and does not develop cracks, they are quick to clean and maintain. They will look as good in years to come as they do when they are first installed.
Maintains continuity with your house:
Running similar Claddings throughout the house can help maintain a seamless appearance in your entire house.
Fibre cement is made up of a combination of cellulose Fibre, cement, sand, and water, as well as a small number of additives - all of which are recyclable and eco-friendly so you can stay guilt-free!
Even though It would be unfair to weigh Fibre cement boards on the same scale as other alternatives such as tiles or digital boards, it still stands a strong fight.
