Finishing work of the living space is always very important in construction, it is thanks to the quality finish an ordinary building turns into a cozy nest. The structure will look spectacular if it will have a staircase made of granite, but, of course, there are other design solutions.
On what cladding to choose, so that the warmth will fill your home, and the appearance will delight others with its originality? Here are some features of the facade trim that you should pay attention to.
Hardly anyone can find a method much more famous than plastering. It is known for its practicality and originality. Plaster applied to the surface of the facade will help keep the heat in the interior of your home. Also plastering protects the walls of the building from precipitation. In addition, plaster increases the fire resistance of your home.
Painting facades is practical enough, by this method you are protecting your home from rot and decay. The reliability of the staining depends on the right choice of the right paint for it. Life experience confirms that the best of all options – acrylic base water-dispersion dyes.
When choosing a dye, consider what kind of surface you need it for. If the facade is concrete, then you need a paint that does not allow air to penetrate, so you keep the quality of the paint. A wooden building needs a paint that could repel the effects of moisture. By the way, do not use a flammable paint. Metal, of course, is best painted with moisture-resistant materials, so you protect the iron from corrosion
Ceramic material can also be used to finish a facade. A very popular way is to do it with ceramic tiles, shingles, bricks or clinker products. Clay, which is part of the ceramic tiles, its feature protects the facades from deformation and destruction. Facades finished with clinker are much stronger, even when you use bricks or other materials, are more resistant to moisture.
For this you will need battens, and to be more precise, the block-house is its variety, with the help of which the facade of your nest will be securely clad. In addition, it is a finishing board, with which you can not doubt about the preserved heat, a wonderful climate in the home – there is no restriction on the air.
Also take advantage of natural stone. You will perfectly suit the specific qualities of marble, granite or onyx. The use of natural stone in the finishing of facades increases the level of thermal conductivity, prolongs the “life” of the finishing work due to the strength of natural stone.
Artificial stone can help you finish your facade wonderfully. It is a kind of mixture of sand and fillers with cement. When using artificial stone, you can easily cut it, applying rounded corners in the process of finishing. It is much easier to finish a facade with artificial stone than with natural material.
It’s very modern to clad your facade using siding. Ecological purity of this material protects and simultaneously ennobles your home, adding aesthetics. Using it siding, you can make revetment not only housing, but also the economic and industrial premises.
This material will provide excellent heat and sound insulation, will be a very serious obstacle to any adverse weather conditions. Equally important is the fact that the “life” of siding is quite long, and this material is suitable for any surface – wood, brick, concrete and even tile.
Important points when cladding
Regardless of the material you choose, you must follow certain rules, or you will never properly clad your facade. Here they are:
- When the surface is plaster, treat it with a primer. If the surface is wood, however, be sure to apply waterproofing. For brick and concrete surfaces, no additional treatment is necessary;
- It’s much more comfortable to start finishing when the temperature is 5-25 degrees above zero. If you need to work in colder temperatures, use a frost-resistant adhesive;
- Polyethylene film will help in creating a greenhouse effect. When the temperature exceeds 25 degrees, don’t let the sun’s rays even get close to the surface you’re working on.
And most importantly, use your creativity. There are no limits to perfection!
