The construction of the house is nearing completion, all major installation work is over and all that remains is to finish the facade, and the house will be ready. We offer you a small cheat sheet for choosing finishing materials for various types of houses.
First of all, it should be understood that construction companies distinguish up to twenty types of cladding belonging to two main groups: ventilated and non-ventilated. Which of these two groups to choose, it is necessary to decide on the basis of the material that was used for the construction of your house, and then determined with a certain type of facade decoration.

All buildings of reinforced concrete panels, arbolitovyh and aerated concrete blocks unite one quality - ideally smooth walls, for which almost all types of facade materials are suitable. For outdoor insulation using foam from C-25 to C-35, where the numbers indicate the density of the material.
The colder the region, the thicker the foam is needed against freezing of the walls and problems with the fungus. In combination with decorative painted plaster this material allows you to create a warm and aesthetic appearance of the house.
Textured plaster by itself is a universal version of the facade finish. Especially beautiful look combinations with artificial and natural facing stone, clinker bricks, glass mosaic.

If you want to disguise the material of the walls and drastically change the look of the house, you should pay attention to the block house. These panels create the effect of a rounded log, and it is not easy to distinguish the exterior from the real logs.
Ventilated facade systems are also used to finish the block-panel house - more complex structures that serve not only beauty, but also functionality. Such a system is a frame, plus insulation and decorative trim.
Outdoor insulation has many beneficial properties. It allows you to bring the dew point outside the structure, and thus get rid of condensation, wet walls and fungus.
There are several types of "skeleton": these are houses using SIP technology, panel-frame houses, LSTK. You can diversify the facade of these projects with the use of wood, panels imitating brick, siding, thermal panels, tiles, and plaster for every taste and color.

For frame houses, as well as block-panel houses, it is easy to choose the facade. For example, there are many types of panels for plating: from metal, stone, porcelain stoneware, glass, vinyl panels, fiber cement and sandwich panels (if it is a hinged facade).
