Vinyl Cladding facts
Our Insulated Vinyl Cladding is a cost effective, insulated exterior cladding for all types of housing, made in Canada and used to create a weather-proof barrier for long-lasting, low-maintenance aesthetics.
It is often used as an alternative to traditional wooden weatherboards or other materials such as aluminium, brick or fibre cement.
Mitten Vinyl Cladding
Mitten Vinyl Cladding is an engineered product, manufactured primarily from polyvinyl chloride, or PVC giving vinyl cladding its name. Approximately 80% of its weight is PVC resin, with the remaining 20% being composed of other ingredients that establish colour, opacity, gloss, impact resistance, flexibility, and durability. It is the most commonly installed exterior cladding for residential construction in the United States and Canada and has been used extensively in Australasia for over 30 years.
The popularity of this cladding type continues to grow in New Zealand, in large part due to its durability, safety, versatility, and ease of maintenance. With the ability to withstand very high winds, (certified up to 250 k/ph or higher) and a composition that resists heat, cold and moisture, Mitten vinyl cladding retains its great looks over time. It also never needs painting. Ever. The only maintenance it will require is a simple wash with a garden hose annually to keep it looking great, a feature today's strapped-for-time homeowners really appreciate.
Unlike some other exterior cladding types, Mitten Vinyl provides exceptional rain-screening that reduces accumulation of water that can reach the underlying water-resistive barrier. This benefit has been recognised by the International Residential Code and International Building Code, giving vinyl cladding a significant advantage over other exterior claddings that do not vent (drain) moisture.
Additionally, Mitten Vinyl cladding comes with a 50-year transferable manufacturer warranty for the ultimate peace of mind.

Cornerstone Eco Homes
Having specified and built using the Mitten weatherboard products recently and seen how easy the product is to work with I continue to recommend this to my clients as a product to weatherproof the Cornerstone Structural Insulated Panel system. As an Architectural Designer & Product Supplier myself, I like to protect & offer my clients what I perceive to be the best products out there. Mitten has a great colour range and variations of weatherboard styles its an easy choice when clients see what is on offer.
We chose to use Vinyl cladding's insulated weatherboards over traditional weatherboards as we didn't want to have to repaint our house. Our builder has told us we have saved over two weeks of Builders labour compared with traditional weatherboards with savings of over 15 thousand dollars! We love it! and no painting.
Our builder of our new home said we saved approximately 3 weeks builders labour and multiple other costs by using Vinyl Cladding's Weatherboards. It saved me heaps $$$$
