We decided to update a country house, but don't know what material to choose for exterior decoration? Pay attention to the siding, which is installed on the walls along the curtain wall system. This technology has a huge number of advantages and is easily implemented on any wall base material. In our article we will tell you how to sheathe a wooden house with siding, which panels are suitable for this and what should be considered before proceeding with the installation.
Ventilated facade systems have existed for more than a decade and have proven themselves perfectly in operation. Such systems are mounted with various decorative materials, but the technology is practically the same.
What are the advantages of this method of cladding a building over other forms of decoration:
Note! The ventilation facade system creates the effect of a thermos, that is, in winter the house does not lose heat, and in summer it is cool.
In addition to obvious advantages, such a system does not require any additional costs for preparatory measures before installation. In fairness, it is worth noting that sometimes the material of the base of the building requires such work, especially if it is an old tree, but more on that later.
Summing up, we can say that a ventilated facade is a beautiful and practical solution that is quite simple to implement, even with your own hands .
A wooden blockhouse itself is considered a warm construction and aesthetic qualities in this case are at a height. So why siding a wooden house? There may be several reasons for this:
Important! Siding will not only improve the performance of a wooden house, but also significantly extend the life of the building.
Panels and blocks of ventilated facades are produced from different materials: from classic metal siding to fiber cement slabs.
When choosing a material for a facade, you should carefully study the properties of all materials and understand how this type of siding will behave on a wooden facade. When arranging a ventilated facade on a wooden building, as a rule, the following tasks are solved:
All tasks are solved at once, with one material. At the same time, since the decision to carry out the work has already been made, it is worth choosing a siding that will maximally protect the tree from moisture, but at the same time will allow the wooden base of the walls to breathe.
Consider the most popular types of cladding of wooden houses.
For convenience, we will divide them according to the principle of the forming material.
The most budgetary and most popular type of wood cladding. This is due to the qualities of vinyl:
The disadvantages include the shortest, relative to other materials, service life. In addition, over time, under UV light, vinyl will lose color brightness.
Important! Installation of vinyl plastic has special features, since the panels are movable in volume depending on the air temperature.
Very often, acrylic siding is confused with vinyl, but this different materials. Acrylic panels have a multi-layer structure and do not change their volume during operation, which greatly simplifies the installation process.In addition, acrylic cladding on the system of ventilated facades has the following advantages:
The disadvantages of such cladding include higher cost than vinyl.
Pay attention! Manufacturers offer quite successful imitation of textures of other, more expensive materials in acrylic version. For example, wood-like or metal-like acrylic panels are very popular.
Steel panels processed on both sides. On both sides, the metal is always treated with anti-corrosion compounds, on top of which a polymer material is applied from the outside and varnish or paint on the inner wall.
The list of shortcomings in this case is also longer:
Very interesting material, which is made on the basis of concrete with the addition of fiberglass. Due to the plasticity of concrete, such slabs can imitate the texture of natural wood or natural stone from the outside. At the same time, the color of the panels corresponds to the chosen style, so at first glance it is sometimes difficult to determine that it is still concrete.
Due to the concrete structure, reinforced with fiber reinforcement, such slabs have the following advantages:
Additional pleasant the bonus is that such a facade can be repainted by yourself .
A significant disadvantage is the large weight of the slabs. For this reason, their installation will require the installation of a reinforced lathing structure.In addition, despite its high strength, concrete is weak in bending, which means panels are fragile and require care during transportation and installation.
In fact, it is also concrete, but with an additional decorative coating.
The material is relatively new and has all the advantages of concrete slabs. Additionally, we can note the strength of the decorative coating and the environmental friendliness of the cladding. At the same time, the addition of clay to the composition makes the tiles more bending strength, which makes it possible to use it even in seismically active areas.
The cost of the material is quite high, which is understandable due to the complexity of the production process. The installation is again the same difficulties as with concrete because of the heavy weight.
And in addition, the material is quite capricious in cutting: in fact, it is a tile on a thick concrete base.
As we have already mentioned more than once, in most cases it is possible to revet a wooden house with siding yourself. You don't need complex construction mechanisms or special skills for this.
Step 1. Wooden or metal crate is stuffed.
Step 2. Material is laid insulation.
Step 3. Is covered windscreen film.
Siding panels are attached.
There are more nuances in this process than the rules themselves. Let's dwell on them in more detail. So, before proceeding with the insulation of the house, it is necessary:
All costs for installing a ventilated facade will come to naught if the heat leaves through the roof;
Earlier, it was already mentioned that a wooden house will require certain preparation measures before installing the curtain wall system. It is necessary to clean the walls of the building from the old decorative material in those places where the coating does not hold firmly.
It is also necessary to cure sore spots: the areas damaged by mold or fungus must be cleaned and soaked. The patli layer between the logs is restored.
The facade is ready, the crate is fixed and thermal insulation and wind protection are laid, - you can start attaching the siding panels. The sequence of actions does not depend on the type of panels and is always the same:
Step 1. The starting rails and ebbs are mounted at the level.
Experienced builders always leave a small backlash so that the mobility of the base material or panels does not lead to deformation.
Step 2. Corner guiding profiles are installed at the corners of the building.
Step 3. Siding panels are fixed to the sheathing beams through special oblong holes using self-tapping screws with a wide round head.
Step 4. After the panels are fixed, the finishing rail is fixed.
Remember! The design of the entrance and window openings comes from the whole panel. That is, you first mount the panel, and then cut a hole in it for a door or window.
Please note, if you seriously think about this type of cladding for the facade of your house, you will certainly need information on siding accessories.
Modern materials of ventilated facades allow to reliably protect a wooden house from the effects of the external environment, additionally insulating it and extending the service life of the building. And the variety of colors and textures of siding will allow you to turn even the most gray hut into an elegant country cottage. At the same time, the funds spent on the device of such a building cladding system are significantly lower than the price of wet facades.
