Is Porcelain Cladding Good or Bad?

You may have been wondering, is porcelain a good or bad material for cladding? And the answer is: there are many pros and very little cons of using porcelain for cladding. Let’s start with the pros…

Pros – Durable and safe

As far as materials suitable for cladding go, porcelain is very durable and also very safe. It is weather-resistant and maintains its appearance with age. Porcelain cladding is also non-combustible so it presents less of a fire risk. It is also very dense and sturdy, so it won’t need many repairs and is less likely to suffer damage compared to other cladding materials.

Pros – Customisable

A wide range of finishes can be applied to porcelain cladding, including stone, wood, metal, cement, and much more. The finishes look great in either matt or solid colour, so you are spoilt for choice. And unlike some other cladding materials, the finishes will look good and realistic. So, if for example, you like stone finishes, you can still go for porcelain cladding and save some money.

Pros – Easy to install and maintain

Porcelain cladding is both easy to install and maintain. Installation is as simple as applying a strong bond and not leaving any space in between the wall. Regarding cleaning, all you have to do is apply water and mild detergent. But the cladding shouldn’t get too dirty as porcelain doesn’t absorb dust and chemicals. Also, graffiti can be cleaned off owing to the fact porcelain isn’t porous.

Pros – Weight

Porcelain cladding tiles are now lightweight and thinner than other cladding materials, whilst also providing high structural strength. The savings in weight will help with building design, delivery costs and more as well as making installation a lot easier.

Cons – Difficult to repair

Although porcelain cladding is easy to maintain if nothing goes wrong, if something does go wrong and damage occurs, the repair can be more difficult and costly compared to other cladding materials. The labour will cost more as porcelain is more difficult to work with when it comes to repairs and the raw materials are more expensive. So bear this in mind when you are selecting your cladding.

Conclusion

In nearly all cases, the pros outweigh the cons when it comes to porcelain cladding.
