I've been spending some time on a home repair forum and I keep coming across the word clad used in the imperative or present tense active form.
- Clad your home in brick.
- He clads his home in brick.
This feels very wrong to me, but I don't know why. Previously, I've only ever seen the verb used passively or as an adjective or noun.
- The home was clad in brick.
- The home was brick-clad.
- Brick cladding covered the home.
And now I've typed clad so many times all the forms sound strange to me! What are the rules for this word?
