Based in Melbourne, Pro Facade specialises in supplying and installing architectural roof and wall cladding.
With over 20 years of experience in the metal cladding industry, we have both the product and installation knowledge needed to ensure that we always supply top quality products that are suitable for the job.
Whether you need Zinc, Copper or Aluminium cladding in Melbourne, Pro Facade will always have exactly what you need at a very competitive price.
As one of the leading suppliers of architectural roof and wall cladding, we offer high quality cladding from proven suppliers so that you can choose the perfect cladding system for your needs.
For example, we’ve got one the best ranges of zinc cladding Melbourne has available, which has proved to be an extremely popular choice with customers all over the city.
We believe this is because zinc makes the perfect metal roof; it looks great, it comes in a range of finishes and, of course, it’s weatherproof, corrosion resistant and will not be degraded by Ultra Violet light.
Plus, as zinc roof cladding lasts a long time, it’s an extremely cost effective choice when you’re looking to install a new roof on your property.
We also stock a range of aluminium cladding, a highly versatile product that comes at a very attractive price. Aluminium cladding is simple, it’s effective, it’s highly durable and, most importantly, it’s resistant to the relentless Australian sun.
At Pro Facade you’ll find that we always have one of the best supplies of aluminium cladding Melbourne has available, in a range of durable colours to suit everyone’s tastes and needs.
Furthermore, as it’s also 100% recyclable, it’s the environmentally conscious option for roofing.
When it comes to copper cladding, Melbourne architects and house builders love how its warm pinkish hue quickly turns to dark brown before settling to the green patina that makes it so unique.
Offering a very distinctive finish, copper is both durable and aesthetically pleasing and has long been used for high-quality designs.
There are many choices in wall cladding, but for cost effectiveness, aesthetics, versatility and lifespan, nothing goes past metal.
Something many people don’t know, however, is that there are all different kinds of metal cladding to choose from. You are not limited to shiny steel plates. There are plenty of choices. Not only in the materials but in the shape, direction of application, colour, thickness, and seam type.
Metal cladding looks thoroughly modern, so when you want to present an image of being on the cutting edge of technology, it’s the perfect choice. It’s also the perfect choice when you need a low maintenance cladding system that is affordable to buy and install.
Some of the many advantages include:
That’s kind of like asking which is better between a Swiss Army knife and a Bowie knife. The latter is only of minimal use in opening a can of beans, but will probably be more effective in a one-on-one fight with a polar bear. The answer, of course, is that it depends on the application.
Here are a few of the choices and their properties:
Copper is a popular choice because it is low cost, light weight, attractive, and malleable. You will often see copper cladding in Melbourne, sometimes alone and sometimes mixed with other cladding materials to create a mosaic effect.
Although metal gives a modern appearance, zinc has actually been used as cladding since at least the 1700s. Architectural zinc is usually an alloy, so it contains a bit of titanium and copper as well, which increases the malleability and tensile strength compared to pure zinc. It’s an environmentally conscious choice, because it is 100% recycable and does minimal harm to the environment.
This is the prestige cladding choice. It provides the highest strength-to-weight ratio of the common cladding materials, and is the most versatile. It is also resistant to surface marking Despite these advantages, you will not commonly see aluminium cladding on Melbourne buildings because it is more expensive than zinc or copper.
The look of an aluminium facade on Melbourne buildings is highly desirable, but the higher cost usually means builders who prefer metal cladding will look to copper or zinc cladding for Melbourne clients, depending on the budget and the needs of the project.
The right choice will always be the one that is suited to the image you want to project about your business.
Copper is a material associated with warmth (due to its colour) and frugality (due to its traditional use in low denomination coinage). It’s an excellent choice for buildings that house art galleries, shops, and financial industry business types.
Zinc is associated with strength, durability, and environmental consciousness. It’s a very versatile choice suited to many applications. It is a cost effective cladding for the exterior facade of factory sites, apartment buildings, and public buildings such as railway stations. It’s ability to withstand weather also makes it good for bus shelters, sheds, and any type of building that is exposed to rain, wind, snow, salt air, etc.
Aluminium is what you use when you want to present the best possible look and money is no object. It’s a badge of prestige that encompasses an entire wall. It’s an especially good choice for interior cladding.
It can actually be a good idea to incorporate a mix of different panel materials within a single installation. Aluminium is good for highlighting around signs. Copper cladding panels are good for a decorative touch, as you can get fine copper cladding details incorporated into your panels. And zinc gives you a good all-round panel material that can stand up to nature.
Starting out a new project is always a daunting prospect, particularly if it is your first time to undertake a building project or if you have just moved into a new home, or office building and are thinking in terms of making the best decisions to secure it for the next few decades.
Regardless of whether you are considering interior or exterior surfaces, we expect that you have already come across cladding materials as a potential option. For some, this might seem like a preposterous idea, however, the reality is that more and more homes and businesses are recognising the cost savings cladding can have and are opting to install these surfaces both inside and outside their homes.
Here at Profacade.com.au, we established our specialist architectural wall and roof cladding business here in Melbourne back in 2007 and in just over a decade have developed a reputation as the go-to experts in this field. While some companies will talk up the benefits of timber, PVC and brick options, we believe that metal is the only way to go when it comes to cladding that will sustain you for decades, provide a low maintenance solution and give your home or business a modern, stylish look that simply won’t go out of fashion.
At Profacade.com.au, we are a one-stop shop type operation. We do not believe in consultancy only to then outsource the work to another company. Instead, we prefer to meet with our potential clients before we ever say yes to a project to get a sense of what is required and whether we believe the project would be a good fit for our specialist skill-set.
Once we are on-board and invested in the project we will come up with designs and then when you are happy with the proposed solution; we will fabricate in-house to ensure that when we deliver the finished product to you, you get exactly what you were promised and paid for.
However, if you are in a position where you have already started a project and are perhaps stuck, or if you would prefer a one-off consultation, do not hesitate to get in touch with us at Profacade.com.au. We have over 20 years of trade experience and offer a troubleshooting service to help get your project back on track, whether that’s to do with questions about appropriate materials for cladding or if its something more specific to do with the design, rest assured we have the knowledge you need.
Prospective clients of Profacade.com.au have nothing to lose. We are happy to provide no-obligation quotes for site inspection, consultancy and tenders.
