Cladding & Flashing
Flashings are pieces of thin waterproof materials that prevent water from getting into your house to preserve the longevity of your roofing system. They are usually installed from material linkage or form a segment of a weather-resistant barrier scheme. Flashing installation is done to prevent water infiltration into vent pipes, windows, chimneys, walls, and doors. If water penetrates any of these home components, there will be an increase in the amount of mould, and the home components will begin to lose their durability.
At Roofing Townsville, we have custom flashings, standard flashings, and curved flashings. They are available based on many factors; what you would prefer and what your home needs. They also come in a variety of colours that match the colour of your home. Flashing materials are aluminum, lead, zinc, stainless steel, pre-painted steel, copper and alloy.
The flashing options come in different forms, based on where you’ll need them. Flashing installation is based on where they are needed in the house, and this determines the type of flashing that you’ll need:
- Corner Flashings
- Chimney Flashings
- Apron Flashings
- Pole Plate Flashings
- Sill Flashings
- Ridge Flashings

You can also use the custom, standard and curved flashings in box gutters, trough gutters, valley gutters and in the various areas where flashings are needed (as mentioned previously).
On the other hand, Cladding involves applying a material over another to create layers and ensure that there is a level of weather resistance and thermal simulation. This helps to beautify the building and also ensure full-time protection. Cladding is made from the following materials:
- Rice straw fibres
- Recycled polystyrene
Cladding helps to control water and wind from affecting your building and pushes it away from your building. Roofing Townsville ensures that your home is protected with our professional cladding installation service.
Apart from protecting your home from the negative effects of water, cladding installation allows you to enjoy some level of privacy by blocking noise. If there is noise within your home, it cannot get outside, and no one would query you for disturbing the neighbourhood. In the same way, noise from outside would not get into your home, and you’ll get to enjoy a renewed sense of peace without being bothered by external elements. With a proper cladding installation, Townsville will have no idea that you have a house party right around the corner. Also, if you need to read or work, the environmental noise won’t disturb you with the cladding feature
