Composite Cladding Colours: Ideas and Inspiration

16 May 2024

 

Composite cladding is used on the outside of buildings and structures to provide an extra layer of protection, but that doesn't mean it has to look dull. In fact with a choice of colours available, including natural and contemporary, and horizontal and vertical styles, it can give any home a fresh new look. 


But how do you pick the perfect shade? This guide explains all of your composite cladding colour options and ideas to inspire your project. 

 

What Composite Cladding Colours are Available? 

Composite cladding comes in a range of colours to suit your home and tastes. It can give your exterior a new lease of life, whether you want to impress guests, make it more attractive to buyers, or simply want to be able to enjoy seeing it when you come home. The embossed wood grain pattern gives it a high-quality finish and resembles natural wood without the imperfections. 


The boards don’t require staining or painting which can save you significant time and costs, but that also makes choosing the right colour all that more important. 


Eurocell’s horizontal composite cladding is available in six New England colours that perfectly match and suit the architecture of any home. The vertical style is available in two shades of grey and a natural green. 


To achieve a consistent and premium shade, acrylic colourants are mixed in during production, and a UV-stable colour cap which protects the boards from fading. You can choose from a selection of matching trims, ends and silicone sealants to complete the look:

Beige

Timeless beige is a good choice if you’re looking for a neutral yet chic colour that doesn’t overpower. Eurocell’s taupe composite cladding is a similar shade to timber, so it blends in with the surrounding landscape and looks natural. If you are thinking about selling your home down the line, it’s a safe choice because it will appeal to many homebuyers. 

 

Blue

Blue composite cladding is a modern and chic choice. It’s stylish and can add tonnes of character to your house and draw attention to architectural features. Eurocell’s pigeon blue composite cladding is neither too light or too dark, so it stands out but is also welcoming. Blue also perfectly complements homes in a coastal city or town. 

 

Green

Green may seem like a bold choice, but Eurocell’s soft green is a pastel shade that can offer serenity and calmness. It looks really natural and earthy, and can blend into the surrounding landscape perfectly. Lighter shades also tend to reflect the light, so the cladding won’t get too hot. 

 

Grey

Grey is a modern and popular choice that's used on many home renovations. It comes in two shades; anthracite grey which is a deeper grey to add impact, and moondust grey, which is softer and more natural. Light grey is a good option if you want to add a hint of glam, while dark grey creates a bold statement.

 

White

White composite cladding is perfect to create a clean and fresh look. It blends in well with surrounding nature and suits many homes. Eurocell’s oyster white is a classic shade that will make your exterior bright and fresh. 

Composite Cladding Boards 

Eurocell’s composite cladding boards are produced in a co-extrusion manufacturing process, where polymer resin, inorganic materials and acrylic colourants are compressed to form consistent and lightweight boards. A UV-stable colour cap is also added to protect against fading. 


The boards are quick and easy to install because they are the same size and shape, and come with a simple clip system. 


Eurocell's Horizontal Coastline cladding is BBA certified for strength and stability, air and water penetration, and durability, the boards are well-designed to protect your home for over 35 years. They can withstand wind pressure of up to 2000 Pa and they won’t absorb moisture. The boards also have an ISO 2796 accreditation for stability and BS EN ISO 178 for strength.

How To Choose What Colour Cladding Is Right For You? 

Before choosing your composite cladding colours, take inspiration from the properties on your street. If you want your home to grab attention, you could choose a striking colour like anthracite grey, or if you want it to blend it, you might opt for a colour scheme similar to your neighbours' homes.


Consider your architecture and features when picking a colour too. A new build would look great with a modern colour like grey, whereas a period cottage would suit a neutral colour like oyster white or taupe. 


If your home is facing the sun, go for a lighter colour which will absorb less heat compared to a darker shade. Homes with lots of greenery often suit taupe, oyster white or soft green cladding to add to the natural and calm vibe, whereas a blue would match the tones of a seaside town or river perfectly.  


Darker shades like anthracite grey are perfect if you want a dramatic look, and creates a backdrop for pops of colour like flowers. In the end though, it comes down to your personal style and vision for your property. You’ll find plenty of inspiration in our range of composite cladding colours
