After concrete fences, wall panels in Kenya are certainly the new method used by builders in the construction business. A wall panel is single piece of material, usually flat and cut into a rectangular shape, which serves as the visible and exposed covering for a wall. These panels are functional as well as decorative, providing insulation and sound proofing combined with uniformity of appearance, along with some measure of durability or ease of replace ability. There is no set size limit for a piece of material fulfilling these functions.
Use of wall panels can reduce construction costs by providing a consistent appearance to the paneled surface without requiring the application of paint or another finishing material. These panels are finished on only one side, if the other side is going to be against a brick or concrete wall, or a comparable structure.
