UPVC and Hardie Wall Plank from Hertfordshire’s Cladding Experts


Hundreds of homeowners throughout Hertfordshire and beyond have called on Upgrade Property Maintenance to add value to their homes with Hardie Wall Plank and UPVC cladding.

We approach a cladding project the same way we approach any building task. First, we take the time to understand your needs and requirements before preparing a transparent, comprehensive quote. We’ll visit your home to inspect walls, roof rafters and joists to make note of any damage or disrepair. By making sure any repairs are carried out before we begin, we’ll safeguard you from future damage. Once we’re in a position to start the cladding, we tackle your project in a professional way to avoid any delays or disruption. Finally, once you’re happy with the completed installation, we sleep soundly after a job well done.




Weather-Resistant Cladding Installed by Experts

Cladding is one of the best ways to add value to your home. It’s not just attractive – high quality cladding will also protect your home from the frequent rain that marks a British winter (or summer). The risk of water damage and damp will be reduced, eliminating the need for any costly repairs in the future.

If you want our advice on the best cladding for your needs, call our team on 01462 640 176 and let our builders share their expertise with you. But if you’d like to learn a little more about the options available, we’ve provided a comparison between our two most popular cladding options.


We Never Over-Clad

When you’re in a rush, it’s easy to cut corners. Some builders will be happy to clad over your existing boards without so much as a second glance.

We aren’t.

Upgrade Property Maintenance has a strict policy of never over-cladding. We take the time to carry out a full inspection of your existing structure, before repairing or replacing any rot or damage.

When we clad your home, you can be certain that we’re not simply covering over any cracks that will come back to haunt you in future.
