Metal siding block house is made of galvanized steel sheets, and high decorative values and full-fledged imitation of a wooden beam are achieved by using a polyester coating with a photographic effect.

In the manufacturing process, galvanized steel is used, the thickness of which should not be less than 0.5 mm, as well as a multi-layer coating, which makes it possible to give the finish durability, resistance to corrosive effects of external factors, improve the basic physical characteristics and increase the resistance to mechanical stress.

Drawing of finished products
Coating is represented by surface chrome plating, priming, application of the base coat and Printech - drawing, as well as finishing application of transparent polyester.
Modern application of a photo-offset layer is an increased fidelity of reproduction of a pattern characteristic of natural wood in a variety of colors or shades. On all finishing panels, manufacturers provide for the presence of a locking, groove type, a connecting system, as well as holes for fasteners, which facilitates independent installation work.
Metal block house
Domestic and foreign manufacturers are currently producing two options for block house metal siding. Panels can be styled as a single log or have a two-row appearance. The size range also has significant differences:
When using a two-row finishing material, the speed of installation work increases, and the use of a single block-house can significantly reduce waste. Among other things, the coating with single-row panels is stiffer and more resistant to wind loads, and the imitation of a log will be more reliable due to the identity of the joint.
Two-row metal siding block house
Modern metal block house panels are produced in lengths from 0.5 to 6.0 meters, but the most popular are products with a length of 3-4 meters, which is due to the convenience of transportation and installation.
As a rule, in the conditions of private housing construction, metal siding in classic and antique colors is used, as well as shades of gold and dark oak.

When choosing a material, it is necessary to take into account some of the disadvantages of metal siding, including the need to purchase additional elements for installation work, as well as significant heating of the finish under the influence of direct sunlight.

Is it necessary to insulate the walls under the siding?
Construction external cladding based on metal finishing panels must necessarily include several basic elements that will allow you to get not only the highest quality, but also durable facade coating.
|Finishing element||Need to use||Recommended material|
|Allows to protect the insulation layer from the damaging effects of moisture.||Vapor barrier film "Izospan" or "Yutafoll".|
Scheme of mounting the frame on the walls of the house
|Creates the space necessary for placing the insulation and is used as a base for fixing the battens.|| Metal profiles.
It is allowed to use a wooden beam with a section of 100x40 mm or 50x40 mm and with a moisture content of no more than 14%.
|Roll or tile material that provides heat conservation.||Glass wool insulation, mineral wool, polystyrene foam boards, polyester foam.|
|Serves as additional protection of the insulation layer from high humidity.|| Super diffusion two-layer polypropylene membrane film.
|Installed in order to obtain better cladding, but, according to some experts, it is not an obligatory element for finishing.||Metal profiles. It is allowed to use a wooden beam with a section of 20x40 mm and a moisture content of no more than 14%.|
Only after creating a kind of multi-layer "pie" on the surface of the facade, you can proceed to the finishing external cladding with a block house.
Calculation of siding panels
Calculate required for facade cladding the amount of material is possible both with the help of special computer programs, and independently, by performing simple mathematical operations.
In this case, the total area of all door and window openings must be subtracted from the total surface area of the walls.
At the next stage, the area of one finishing panel is calculated by multiplying its length by its width, after which the indicators of the working area must be divided by the indicators of the area of the panel. To the result obtained, you need to add about 10% for finishing rectangular walls, and 15% if the surface is trapezoidal, and also has a large number of protrusions or indentations.
Thus, with a house height of 3 meters and a wall length of 6 meters, as well as the presence of two 1x2 m windows, the useful area of one wall will be 18 - 4 meters = 14 meters. If the working area of a two-row panel is 1.
4 meters, then 10 panels + 10% = 11 panels are required for wall cladding.
An example of the simplest calculation option.
Calculation of the facade area
If the building height is 3.8 m, and the working dimensions of the panel are 19 cm, then finishing will need 20 pieces without taking into account the width. With a house width of 7.
62 m and a panel length of 3.81 m, the cladding will be carried out in two rows, so the total number of panels will be 40 pieces for a wall without window and door openings.
If independent calculations seem too complicated, and there is no way to use a computer program, then it makes sense to order a calculation in special design organizations.
Before installing the main elements of the ventilated facade, it is necessary to correctly prepare the surface, as well as perform visual zoning for the convenience of work.
Carefully remove vegetation, gutters, antennas and other structures that could interfere with the installation from the surface. We remove dust and the largest dirt, as well as peeling plaster layers.
The old coating must be carefully cleaned

Step 2. We check the surface of the wall and corner zones with the help of a building level, after which we mark the areas to be aligned with the crate.
We align the basement or blind area, after which we carefully mark the surface of the walls under the lathing bars.

Well-established manufacturers of metal block houses supply the following accessories with finishing panels:

In order to independently carry out the installation of the decoration and get not only attractive, but also durable cladding, you will need the following tools:
For the convenience of carrying out work at different heights, you will need to use a ladder and ladder, as well as scaffolding.

Depends on of the direction in which it is supposed to carry out the finishing cladding with metal siding, the direction of the lathing can vary.
The vertical direction of the panels will require a horizontal lathing, and when the block house is placed horizontally, the lathing bars or a metal profile must be fastened in a vertical position.
Step 1. We put a vapor barrier film and fasten the crate under the panels with a step of 30-40 cm with galvanized screws. We equip window and doorways with a solid crate. We fix the bars in the areas of installation of finishing, at the joints and in the corner areas.

Step 2. Mounts the slab insulation from bottom to top, placing the material in the crate cells.Plates should not deform, but they should be placed tightly enough. We fasten the insulation using plastic disc dowels with a spacer rod system, spending about six to eight pieces per square meter. To correctly calculate the length of the fastener, you need to add 50-70 mm to the recess to the thickness of the insulation.

Step 3. We install windproof single-circuit ventilation in the horizontal direction. You can attach the material to a wooden frame with staples. Film materials are fixed to the metal crate with double-sided tape and counter rails. Sections of joints should be glued with construction tape.

Depending on the type and size of finishing panels, as well as their direction, the installation of additional elements may have some differences. In the most popular horizontal installation of metal siding, the level starting element is mounted along the lower edge of the cladding material and fixed in 30 cm increments. The main stages of the block house installation are standard.
Setting the starting bar
Step 1. Using a plumb line, mark and set the outer and inner corners, fixing them with a step of 30 cm on both sides, after which we similarly mount docking H-shaped strips, as well as a U-shaped strip for framing openings, in the areas of panel connection.

Facing non-rectangular corners
Step 2. We make frames for windows and doors with an outer plank for slopes ... Door and window edging assumes sequential installation and fastening of the top and side elements with a step of 25-30 cm.
Step 3. Install the finishing panels.
Horizontal installation involves work from the bottom up. It is necessary to hook the base of the panel to the starting plate and fix the upper edge with self-tapping screws in increments of 25-30 cm. The fasteners should be placed in the center of the mounting hole, starting from the middle of the panel.
To prevent the metal block house from deforming during operation, the fastening of the panels should not be rigid. A small temperature gap of 5-8 mm must be left. Each subsequent panel must be inserted into the docking and corner strips, and then fastened.

Step 4. We carry out installation of panels around the window and door openings.
As soon as the block house cladding has reached the opening, we fasten the next panel, and cut its top to the width of the window opening with the addition of 0.8-1.0 cm on the sides and depth, one hundred will allow you to create the correct low tide slope.
Step 5. Create a window sill with an angle of inclination in the direction from the window.
The ebb tides must be approximately 5-6 cm wider on each side than the opening. The edge of the window ebb must be bent upwards along its entire width, in the direction from the outer side of the block house. Then the side slopes of the planks and the upper plank are mounted.

Step 6. Install the drainage elements, leveling its level and carrying out its fastening in increments of 30 cm.
The final touch of self-finishing with a metal block house is to frame the upper part of the cladding. There is a choice here and you can do this job using a top ebb or finishing bar. Self-tapping bolts with a pitch of 30 cm are used for fastening the elements.

The use of metal panels for a rounded log allows you to independently give the building an aesthetic appearance, and also helps to level flaws. The cladding of the metal siding is not airtight, so the surface of the walls continues to breathe, and the comfortable microclimatic conditions in the house do not change.
The variety of shades and textures of the panels make the choice of finishing materials very rich, and the simplicity of the technology of installation work does not require much time and effort for covering even a large surface area.
