What is cladding?

Cladding is the outer layer applied to high rise buildings to increase thermal energy efficiency and/or to improve aesthetics while not adversely affecting weather resistance. Cladding is non-load bearing, which means it is not part of the structural integrity of the building itself.

Cladding Removal Services London

Different types of cladding

There are a multitude of types of cladding available to fit different purposes or aesthetic styles to match the appearance of the building. There is cladding available made to look like the exterior of a traditional red brick building or ranging to more modern cladding made from glass or metal.  Cladding panels can be made from a wide variety of materials such as wood, metal, brick, or vinyl. It is difficult to tell which material and composite cladding is made of just by looking at it.

To find out, further investigation will need to be carried out. At Feltham Groundworks, we can work with you to find the best type of cladding to suit your building.

Cladding regulations and the Grenfell Tower fire

Cladding Removal & Disposal London area

Cladding, while an important part of any building, has the potential to be highly dangerous. Depending on the composite makeup of the cladding, it can be highly flammable resulting in fires on the exterior of a building structure. Containing these fires, once they have begun, is very difficult as they spread rapidly.

The Grenfell Tower fire in 2017 is an unfortunate example of the dangers of unregulated cladding. The cladding caught on fire and the building went up in flames at an alarming speed. The fire, which started inside an apartment on the fourth floor burst through a window and set the cladding on fire, which then spread laterally and ignited the entire building.

The cladding used on Grenfell Tower was aluminium sheets of cladding with a central plastic polyethylene core.  The Grenfell Tower fire is one of the worst modern disasters in the UK and has sparked a serious change in cladding rules and regulations.

The government is bringing an end to unsafe cladding in the UK with a multi-billion-pound intervention with a ban on combustible materials used in cladding. The ban also means that all foam-based insulation, plastic fibre-based composites and timber-based walling and cladding materials will not be available for use on buildings less than 18 metres.

In February of 2021, the government also announced that they would pay for the removal of cladding on high rise buildings, providing reassurance and protecting tenants from costs. However, this regulation does not cover the expense of cladding removal and re-installation for private homeowners or landlords who rent apartments out. The cost of removing and re-installing cladding is expensive, if you want it done right and done safely.

At Feltham Demolition, we can remove and re-install the cladding on your building to meet government safety regulations for the best price. Do not hesitate to get in touch with us to learn more about how we can help you remove and reinstall the cladding on your building.

How cladding re-installed


The first step is deciding what type of cladding you want to install onto your building. Are you interested in something that will match your aesthetic style, or a cladding with a particular sort of adhesive bond? At Feltham Demolition, we will work with you to help you decide exactly which type of cladding will best suit your needs.

Once you’ve selected the type of cladding, whether it be metal cladding, glass cladding, or brick cladding we can then get started installing it. We start by measuring out the tiles of cladding we are going to be installing and marking them on the surface of the building to ensure they are laid on properly. We get to work on installing the cladding you’ve selected onto the outside of your building, taking care to make sure that the cladding is lined up properly and will fit together seamlessly. Installing cladding takes less time than removing it, but again this depends on the size of the property.
