A lot of people ask themselves whether sheet metal cladding can affect air quality in a house.

In this blog, we have come up with the most convincing reasons why you need sheet metal cladding to improve the air quality in your home or building.

Great Benefits of Sheet Metal Cladding

Metals are well known to have excellent longevity, resistance, and durability.

1. No off-gassing of harmful chemicals

One of the reasons why sheet metal cladding lasts a long time is because it’s not very reactive. It’s metal, and it’s not going to off-gas any of the harmful volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) like plastics will.

2. Doesn’t absorb moisture

Unlike other materials like brick or wood, metal doesn’t hold or retain moisture. This makes it a better option for homes as you wouldn’t worry about fungus, mildew, moulds, etc.

Materials that absorb moisture and promote the growth of fungi, will affect air quality in the house. Moulds, fungus, and mildew are harmful to one’s health.

3. Fire-resistant

One of the benefits of selecting sheet metal cladding is its fire-resistance abilities. It is great for houses as you don’t have to think about fire damage. This boosts your peace of mind and confidence in your building materials.

For example, you are well protected against thunderstorms even if lightning strikes the cladding.

4. Recyclable

Metal is a recyclable material. When it depreciates its value, it doesn’t just become useless, as it can be reused and recycled.

We recommend installing sheet metal cladding to your building’s exterior. This is our business, and, as noted here, we know that sheet metal does not have any bad effects on air quality.
