The terms cladding and facade are often incorrectly used interchangeably. While the words are related, they don’t refer to the same thing. To clear up some of the confusion regarding this topic, today we’re exploring what the difference is between exterior wall cladding and facade.

Defining Exterior Wall Cladding and Facades

Let’s get started by defining both terms. Facade refers to the main exterior design of a home or property, usually its front part facing an open space or the street. When we talk about a facade, it refers to the external appearance of a building. Mostly, the term is used when making reference to design, style or color. External cladding, on the other hand, refers to an external protective layer that protects and beautifies a building envelope. There are countless exterior wall cladding designs from which to choose while a building can only have one facade. In a way, both terms allude to a building’s exterior.
