Which Materials Work Best For Granny Flat Exteriors?

Granny flats are an excellent addition for residential properties. These customised structures can be built to suit your specific requirements with the number of bedrooms you want. The design and styling can be made to match the exterior appearance of your main home structure which creates a seamless look on your property.

While there are many granny flat builders in Sydney, very few can provide you with the kind of solutions that we at 5 Star Granny Flats offer. 

We work very closely with our clients, ensuring that all of their ideas are taken into account while creating 1 or  2 Bedroom Granny Flat Design. Many of our clients also opt for three-bedroom or Studio granny flats.

Regardless of what your requirement is, we are here to help you with every aspect of your project. It is essential to ensure that all the features in the interior spaces are designed to meet your needs. But you must also choose the exterior materials with care.

Ideal materials for granny flat exteriors

Many different types of materials can be used for granny flat exterior cladding. Here we take a look at some of the most popular ones:

  • Brick – This is a trendy material that many clients opt for. It lends a classic look to the structure and fits in well with different types of landscaping materials and architectural styling. Brick is available in the standard rust-red colour as well as a wide range of colours. This variety makes it easy to find something that will match the overall appeal and aesthetic of your home structure.
  • Vinyl– It is a relatively new material that is extremely resilient and durable, making it ideal for exterior cladding. Not only does it add to the beauty of your granny flat but also improves the structure’s energy efficiency. You can choose from vinyl or different colours and finishes, and your granny flat builder would be able to provide you with guidance on the matter.
  • Stucco- This concrete-sand mix is ideal for any exterior walls. Not only is it very tough and hardy but is also porous, which helps to maintain a more comfortable indoor temperature. You can choose from stucco of different shades and colours and can mix and match them to create the look that you want for your granny flat’s exterior.
  • Weathertex Timber- This unique material is a combination of 97% of timber and 3% of natural wax. It is coated with a nontoxic acrylic primer and has a very natural and traditional look. If you are very eco-conscious, this is an excellent material to use as granny flat exterior cladding.
