Facade cladding.

Folder facade coverings: introduction: introduction

More than just a material, your facade cladding is an element of decoration in its own right that gives the look of your home at a glance. Visible by all, his choice should not be left to chance. In addition to the aesthetic side, it also seals the frame against air and water, while letting it breathe. In addition, French law requires you to swallow your facade and keep it in good condition. That's why, this month, HandymanDuanche has chosen to devote its file to different facade cladding.

The legislation.

According to the Building and Housing Code, "the facades of buildings shall be kept in a clean condition and the necessary work shall be carried out at least once every ten years, on the injunction that is made to the owner by the municipal authority ". If you break the rule, you risk a fine of 3750 euros. Attention also to the choice of the coating, which must be accepted by the municipality when you make your declaration of work. To put the odds on your side, it must be in harmony with the local architecture. Thus, a red brick facade traditionally used in the North may not be allowed in the south of France, where light shades are commonplace.

The classic coatings.

Between brick, plaster, stone, lime or cement, classic coatings are strongly represented on French territory. Most are made with common materials and are widely used locally, which reduces their cost. So you will easily find professionals to provide but also to install these coatings. By opting for this type of coating your facade will blend perfectly into the environment.

The original coatings.

Folder facade coverings: introduction: coatings

Whether ecological, traditional or innovative, these facade claddings are generally found on non-standard buildings such as "architect homes" or self-builder homes. Cladding in wood, PVC or metal, green wall, glass, polished concrete or rammed earth, these unusual coatings offer an aesthetic and original finish to the facades they cover. They generally require very particular laying techniques and are rarely available in supermarkets. It is not always easy to find qualified companies or quality coatings at a good price.

Paints and coatings.

Folder facade coverings: introduction: coatings

Paints and coatings offer a wide range of products and a wide range of colors. The paintings decorate and protect your façade effectively. Acrylic or pliolite, mineral or organic, this type of coating is quite accessible and relatively simple to apply. Thus, with plaster or paint, everyone can cut his facade alone and at a lower cost.

To discover in more detail the traditional coatings, HandymanDuanche will give you an appointment next week with the first part of our file.
