What is Next Gen Composite?
Next Gen Composite cladding is an ultra low maintenance synthetic hardwood solution for closeboard gates and fencing. Using 100% recycled material, Next Gen Composite is a superior alternative to timber and traditional composite boards. It also offers many other benefits, including ultra high durability, sustainability, and resistance to water and UV fading.
A composite material is a combination of materials that has different physical and chemical properties. Once combined, the end product often has improved strength and other properties specific to its purpose.
This is why composite boards are a great choice for exterior cladding and are commonly used for gates and fencing for exterior walls and entrances. While playing a key role in resistance against the elements, composite cladding also looks good, which improves the exterior of your home.

Why Choose Composite Cladding over Timber Cladding?
Timber and composite are both popular choices when it comes to cladding, but they are different in a number of significant ways. When deciding what the correct choice is for your project, there are many factors to take into consideration:
Composite cladding is more durable than natural timber cladding, especially when the timber is not maintained regularly. Wood becomes less durable over time, becoming susceptible to splinters and rot and vulnerable to termites and pest infestations.
In contrast, composite cladding is made up of synthetic materials, which means it won’t attract termites and pests and be at risk to this kind of damage.
Both timber cladding and composite cladding are reasonably priced, but when you invest in composite cladding boards, you save money in the long haul. When you take into account the maintenance costs, composite cladding is much more cost-effective than timber cladding.
Due to the long lifespan and low maintenance of composite cladding, your cladded gates will last longer and painting, staining & treating aren’t necessary with these boards — unlike timber, which needs to be treated fairly often to protect against damage.
Timber cladding is beautiful, but requires quite a bit of maintenance and upkeep. Sanding, sealing, staining, and painting are important if you want to retain the aesthetic and quality of timber cladding. Composite cladding, on the other hand, is super low maintenance and does not require any sanding or coating to strengthen it or prevent fading over time.
You do not need to constantly clean or treat the Next Gen Composite boards and there is also no risk of the cladding attracting wood-boring insects. The only maintenance composite boards require is the occasional cleaning with water.
Timber cladding may be natural and uniquely textured with every piece, but it only offers a wood look, unless it’s coated with paint. Cladding boards are a versatile and cost-effective solution for any project — effortlessly giving your exteriors a functional facelift. Its versatility allows you to choose between an array of colours, textures, and even wood looks.
For any home project, the right colour choice is imperative. Whether you are going for functionality or a finishing look to complete your overall aesthetic, the Next Gen Composite cladding colour range provides the luxury of choice and versatility.
Colours include Anthracite Grey, Golden Oak, Black, and Mahogany.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will composite cladding increase the value of my property?
Adding composite cladding to the entrance or exterior wall of your property could help it sell for more. It will improve the ‘curb appeal’ of your home, giving people a positive first impression. The combination of added privacy, aesthetic appeal, protection from the elements, and ease of maintenance, will also significantly increase the value of your home.
How versatile is composite cladding?
Whether it is for a residential or commercial property, there are a range of external cladding options to choose from and they can be used in various ways. Composite cladding is a great option for driveway gates and as fencing for exterior walls.
Composite cladding also isn’t constrained to one direction — it can be used vertically and horizontally — giving you complete freedom of design.
How do you maintain composite cladding?
Once your Next Gen composite cladding installation is complete, maintaining it is easy. Due to its 100% water resistance and durable finish, the boards will repel surface water and dirt (which could otherwise lead to mould).
However, if occasional cleaning is needed, all you need to do is use a cloth to wipe off any marks from the surface. First soaking the cloth in soapy water is recommended if you want to wipe simple stains. Overall, composite is extremely low maintenance, which is one of its major features.
Does composite cladding match all aesthetics?
Cladding can change the overall look of your residence. Once installed, it can take a dull-looking space and transform it into something eye-catching.
Whether you are wanting a more modern look or a traditional finish, creating your desired aesthetic is easy when it comes to composite cladding boards. With its wide range of colours and finishes, you won’t have a problem finding one that suits your style.
How do I choose the right cladding board colour?
Colour selection is something that will happen at the beginning of your project and our team will be more than happy to advise you if you are unsure of the right choice for your project.
Generally, you should keep the look you are wanting to achieve in mind and find a colour to match. If you want a lighter or natural woody tone, the Golden Oak or Mahogany cladding will be a perfect choice. The Anthracite Grey is good for a cooler finish, whereas if you’re looking for something a little darker and more modern, the Next Gen Composite board in Black is what you’re looking for.
How does Next Gen Composite vary from other composite materials?
Synthetic hardwood products are typically made up of a blend of products such as timber fibres, recycled plastics, and other polymer resins. The Next Gen composite solution varies in that it is made entirely of recycled materials and contains no new plastics or wood fibres.
Can composite cladding get damaged?
Next Gen composite boards are durable and long-lasting, having a strong resistance to most weather conditions and other factors it would encounter on a daily basis as part of your driveway or pedestrian gates. With its high UV and water resistance and wood free composition, you won’t need to worry about your composite gates becoming damaged.
