Metal cladding is supplied as a series of interlocking panels that are affixed to the exterior of the building. It can be applied in a variety of formations to create different visual effects, and each metal has its own unique character and properties. Metal cladding comes in a wide range of finishes, from shiny and reflective right through to matt, powder-coated colours. This dramatic home is clad in a product called Corten, a pre-weathered steel that continues to rust and develop a beautiful patina over time. Its striking textural appearance and reddish hue pair beautifully with other natural finishes such as timber and stonework.

4. Corten steelCorten is a weather-resistant steel (copper-chromium alloy steel) that is more resistant to atmospheric weathering than other unalloyed steels. Its chemical composition reacts to pollutants in the atmosphere and promotes the early formation of a protective oxide film, which constantly regenerates over time. This patina develops as a reddish-brown layer and gains a darker hue with time. Despite the look of corrosion, Corten has twice the tensile strength of mild steel, making it an ideal structural material as well as being used for cladding and other architectural features.

Both Gabriel and I like the way this steel goes that beautiful natural red. It would match the rocks found on the property.
