Around Australia we are seeing a growing popularity of people building Granny Flats in their backyard. Homeowners are building a brand new granny flat that resembles a miniature home or simply converting a garage.  Granny Flats can be used for a variety of purposes such as to generate a rental income, home offices or simply to accommodate your extended family. 

Vinyl Cladding is a great way to finish off a Granny Flat and provide an aesthetically pleasing look without blowing the budget. Available in 13 different colours our Vinyl Cladding is low maintenance and is the perfect solution for a small investment property.
