External house cladding: What are your options?

Factors which will influence the materials you can choose include your budget, the look of houses in your neighbourhood, and what your local council will approve. Also keep in mind that material costs can vary greatly depending on the intricacies of a project. A lot of suppliers will only work directly with trade, which means you may need to hire a building company or architect for the type of cladding you desire.
