PVCu & Vinyl Cladding | Circular Project
PVC or polyvinyl chloride or vinyl is a plastic that is well known to all of us from plastic containers to bank- and membership cards or records. PVCu is also a type of plastic, however with the difference that it is un-plasticised. While PVCu is slightly better for the environment as it is un-plasticised both are made of finite resources and not biodegradable. We do believe there is an opportunity with PVCu cladding- it should be possible to produce those out of 100% recycled material.

Aluminium Cladding | Circular Project
Aluminium needs very little maintenance and keeps its colour for a long time saving you potentially time and money in maintenance. It can take the shape of traditional weatherboards or is also used in sheets, so-called composite panels. Usually, aluminium is fixed with clips onto the wall.So, what are the good and the bad about aluminium weatherboards/ composite panels?

Fiber cement weatherboards | Circular Project
Fibre cement has become more and more popular in recent history. The general make-up of the weatherboard material is cement, sand, and cellulose. Most of the time the boards are made to look like timber and then painted. Lower maintenance requirements compared to timber weatherboards are a big part. Let us be honest, who has lots of spare time? Here we look at the pros and cons of fibre cement weatherboards.

Brick Masonry | Circular Project
Brick masonry has been around for a long time. In early days the clay bricks were sun dried. Later they were fired in a furnace to harden and became even more resistant. Bricks last the test of time, much of old Rome is build with bricks and 2000 years old. The red brick look is a bit of an english thing and adds the english character into your building. Bricks in general are very low on maintenance, the occasional clean which is not even mandatory, just for the looks.

Stone Masonry | Circular Project
Stonemasonry is very diverse- as most stones can be used for the cladding of the house. A stone house is timeless and filled with character. Stones have the environmental edge over bricks in so far as they do not require energy to be hardened, shaped or mixed and are from an environmental point of view better than bricks. The only environmental drawback is that more mortar may be used to bind them compared to bricks (depending on the size of stones chosen.

Timber Cladding | Circular Project
Timber cladding has been used for thousands of years. Timber cladding can be the log home (where the log is the structure, cladding and insulation), wood shingles or timber weatherboards. Wood adds warmth and a beautiful character to your building. The look of especially timber weatherboards is in NZ so popular, that many producers of alternative materials imitate the timber look.
