How to ensure that our facade lasts for years?

There is no one way guaranteeing the long-term longevity of a facade because different types of facades react differently to external conditions. The durability of the most popular plaster covers is determined by several factors. One of them is the resistance to changing environmental factors. Some plasters (acrylic, silicone) are more resistant to rain or moisture, others (silicone and mineral) are resistant to high temperatures, while mineral plasters are also resistant to low temperatures. In addition, silicone plasters are also relatively resistant to soiling. The color and texture of the plaster is also important. The brighter the color, the more durable it is, mainly due to higher sunlight reflectivity. A rough texture is also conducive to the longevity of the plaster, as smooth surfaces are less resistant to all kinds of stresses, including those caused by temperature fluctuations. The durability of clinker or stone facades depends primarily on the proper techniques of their execution (the presence of anchors, expansion joints or – in the case of cavity walls – adequate ventilation) and also on the high quality of the used materials. Well protected wood is the prerequisite for a durable wooden facade. Wall faces made of panels or fiber-cement slates will be durable if they are laid in accordance with the instructions of the manufacturer. In addition, we should remember that the proper maintenance of any kind of facade, along with the regular removal of dirt and an efficient rain drainage system will extend its longevity.
