Vinyl Cladding Facts

Our Vinyl Cladding is a cost effective, insulated exterior cladding. For all types of housing. 

Canadian made; it's used to create a weatherproof barrier for long lasting, low-maintenance aesthetics.

It is the smart alternative to wooden, aluminium, brick, or fibre cement weatherboards.

Mitten Vinyl Cladding

Mitten Vinyl Cladding is an engineered product, manufactured primarily from PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride). Approximately 80% of its weight is PVC resin. The remaining 20% composes other ingredients that establish:

  • Colour
  • Opacity
  • Gloss
  • Impact Resistance
  • Flexibility
  • Durability

In the United States and Canada, it is the most installed exterior cladding in residential construction. It has also been extensively utilised all around Australasia, over the past 30 years.
The popularity of this cladding type continues to grow in New Zealand, in large part due to its:

  • Durability 
  • Safety 
  • Versatility 
  • Ease of maintenance. 
  • Ability to withstand remarkably high winds (up to 250KM/H+)
  • 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 might need is a simple wash with a garden hose annually, to keep it looking great. A feature today's strapped-for-time homeowners appreciate.

Unlike some other exterior cladding types, Mitten Vinyl provides exceptional rain-screening: Reducing the accumulation of water that can reach the underlying water-resistive barrier. Mitten Cladding is recognised by both the International Residential Code, and the International Building Code - giving our product a significant advantage over many exterior claddings that do not vent (drain) moisture.
Additionally, our Mitten Vinyl cladding comes with a 50-year transferable manufacturer warranty. Creating the ultimate peace of mind.

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.
