Stone cladding bonus

Stone cladding is seen to be the ultimate architectural joke.

The demise of the fashion for a faux country cottage in the midst of red brick terrace was accelerated by the Duckworths association in Coronation Street.

These deeply unfashionable adaptations have often ended up in the hands of landlords who have been attracted by their reduced values.

However landlords can now look to turn a negative into a positive.

The Federation of Master Builders (FMB) have pointed out that cladding is essentially solid wall insulation and therefore likely to make a property more energy efficient.

So the next time a tenant turns their nose up at the stone cladding point to the fact it will save them money on fuel bills.

The other positive of renting a stone clad property is that its better to be in the property looking out than across the road looking at all that ugly stone cladding.
