Facade decoration methods
Decorative plaster can be used to cover traditional plaster or to form the finishing layer of the insulation system. The binding material used in its production determines the properties of this plaster. The decorative plaster is divided into types according to chemical composition and properties. Five types of decorative plaster is offered: acrylic plaster, silicone plaster, silicate plaster, mineral plaster, and silicate-silicone plaster. Each type of plaster has different properties. The most important of them is elasticity, resistance, maintenance, colour variety and durability.
Clinker tile installation
The use of clinker tiles in construction is very wide due to their versatility. The clinker tiles absorb little water and it makes them very suitable for outdoor use. It is very important to pay attention to the moisture absorption index when selecting this material.
The Lithuanian climate is suitable for clinker tiles; they are extremely strong and durable. Clinker tiles hardly change their colour due to resistance to UV rays, they do not expand due to cold resistance, do not break down the wall and do no crumble since they do not expand.
The maintenance of the clinker tile facade is easy because of all of these features. It is enough to wash the walls and you can enjoy the beautiful house facade again.
The colours of clinker tiles are extracted naturally and their shades depend on clay type.
Clinker tiles are installed on the insulation layer.
It is common to associate facade siding boards with wood that is natural and provides cosiness. The mahogany, spruce, pine, or cedar wood is most often used for this type of decoration. This type of siding requires additional care and it is more sensitive to the effects of the environment. Therefore, in order to improve the properties of wood, a wood and plastic composite has been developed. It is resistant to environmental influences and more durable. Wood composite siding is made of wood dust, pellets and chips by mixing them with PVC.
The cement siding is made of the highest quality fibre cement, sand, cellulose fibre and other chemical impurities. This siding is resistant to fire, moisture, fungus and mould.
Plastic siding is durable, does not deform and does not require regular repair and renewal.
Wood and plastic composite, cement and plastic siding do not require additional impregnation and or painting throughout the service life.
Facade siding is used during installation of ventilated facades.
The high pressure laminates (HPL), fibre cement, and aluminium composite facade panels are the most popular ones. The natural and artificial stone, stone mass, ceramic, stainless steel, copper facade panels are used less frequently. The panels are used during the installation of ventilated facade.
HPL (High Pressure Laminates) is high pressure compressed and impregnated cellulose at high temperature.
Fibre cement panels is the composition of cement, cellulose and synthetic fibre.
The surface of such facade panels is more resistant to water, impact, scratches, and UV rays. The panels are durable and easy to install. There is no need to take care of the maintenance of the facade panels - they are not regularly painted or otherwise renewed.
