Title: Cladding system

Abstract: A cladding system used to secure a cladding material panel to a building structure and including upper and lower bracket members to cooperatively and respectively engage upper and lower ends of adjacent cladding material panels. The upper bracket member includes a first fastener member to engage an interior surface of a first cladding material panel and a second fastener member a spaced apart distance therefrom and also engaging the first cladding material panel. A mount assembly secures the upper bracket member a spaced apart distance from the building structure and facilitates alignment of the cladding material panels. The lower bracket member includes a first lower fastener member to engage a second cladding material panel and a second lower fastener member a spaced apart distance therefrom which also engages the second cladding material. A coupling assembly secures the upper and lower bracket members in aligned relation with one another such that an exterior surface of the first cladding material panel secured by the upper bracket member is generally aligned with an exterior surface of the second cladding material panel secured by the lower bracket member.
