Importance of regular maintenance programs

Your house is probably your biggest asset as well as your home - so it's important to look after it, starting with the external cladding.

All exterior claddings need regular maintenance to ensure their long term performance and to guard against effects of leaking. It's no different from getting your car serviced regularly to ensure that any problems are picked up early, it’s working optimally and is less likely to malfunction.

Some homes with monolithic cladding types are at risk of being leaky buildings, so you need to be particularly vigilant and carry out a careful inspection of the cladding at least once a year. If you have concerns that you may have a leaky home you should seek professional advice.

For general maintenance, the cladding should be washed regularly. For some claddings, you may be required to wash them at specified intervals to keep the warranty valid. Washing the cladding as part of a regular maintenance check will extend the building's life however you do need to check with the manufacturer or get professional advice beforehand for any specific cleaning requirements and to avoid any potential damage.
