ideas and options - Instruction + Video A frame house is, in fact, a wooden house. However, due to the versatile design, the options for finishing the facade of the frame building can be very diverse. Private developers, like construction organizations, choose a variety of options for the facade of a frame house: siding, brickwork and even a "wet" facade.

Let's consider the main options for facing a house built using frame technology

Facade of a frame house: using vinyl siding

ideas and options - Instruction + Video Before in all, it should be noted that when sheathing a frame house with siding, based on the climatic characteristics of our homeland, the facade should be made ventilated.

In this case, the siding will be mounted on a counter-lattice installed over the hydro-windproof membrane.

In Canada itself, where frame technology came to us, a ventilated facade is usually not required, but in Russia the climate is somewhat different.

Therefore, if the facade of the house is cladding using vinyl siding, it is recommended to install a ventilated facade

Swedish-Finnish version of cladding using a painted facade board

ideas and options - Instruction + Video External finishing of a frame house can be done using a facade board or imitation under a bar. This option for finishing the facade of a frame house is quite popular in the Scandinavian countries, where great importance is attached to the naturalness and environmental friendliness of the material.

Facade board, as a rule, has one part planed, and the other polished.

The sanded outer (front) side is left to better absorb the paint.

The algorithm for decorating frame houses with a front board will be as follows:

  1. The surface of the front board is sanded.
  2. A layer of primer is applied to the entire surface of the board, like all wooden building materials used in the construction of a house.

    Important! Coating with a primer must be performed in the first two days from the moment of grinding, while the pores of the wood are open.

  3. Next, the facade board is covered from all sides with a layer of paint.

  4. The board is mounted on the facade of the house with a gap of about 2 mm.
  5. The decorated facade is covered with another coat of paint.

The wooden facade of a frame house should also be ventilated, otherwise the elements from the array will begin to rot and collapse.


Sometimes, instead of a front board, a frame house is finished using edged boards or lining. Regardless of the type of wooden elements used, the cladding algorithm will remain unchanged.

Facade of a frame house: we use fiber cement siding

Fiber cement siding

Fiber cement siding is a fairly strong and durable material for facade cladding, which feels like ceramic to the touch.

Has a well-fixed painted layer, which is applied to the surface of the finishing material in the factory, so it does not fade for a long time.

At first glance - an excellent material for finishing the facade of a house. However, there are significant drawbacks:

  • quite expensive,
  • difficult to install,
  • corners require wood or metal terminations. ideas and options - Instruction + Video

Wet facade on a frame house

Wet facade finishing

The "wet facade" of the frame can be made using clinker tiles or artificial stone.

In this case, the "pie" of the wall will consist of an oriented strand board attached to the frame racks, on which foam plastic is installed with a special fastener.

Next, two reinforcing layers are applied, after which clinker tiles or artificial stone slabs are attached using a special glue.


The resulting "wet facade" is needed, first of all, so that there is a basis for external finishing.

ideas and options - Instruction + Video It is quite possible to make a wet facade of a frame house with your own hands. This technology is used when insulating a house with foam, because fastening the cladding materials directly to the foam plates is impossible.

Plastering the facade of a frame house

If it is necessary to perform a "wet facade", then the course of work will be exactly the same as described above. Only the outer reinforcing layer should be covered with a layer of plaster, not wedge tiles or artificial stone. ideas and options - Instruction + Video

Plaster can also be applied to the facade of a house sheathed with cement particle board.

Brickwork as an option for finishing the facade of a frame house

Methods for finishing the facade of a frame house include such an option when the house is clad with bricks. The most commonly used "hollow" lightweight brick, but sometimes "solid" is used.

The use of DSP in the decoration of the facade

DSP slabs for the facade of a frame house is a rather convenient material for decoration. This building material consists of a mixture of cement and wood. Due to the fact that the basis of the slab is still a cement mortar, it practically burns, and is also resistant to moisture. The plate acquires additional protection against moisture if it is impregnated with drying oil.

A significant disadvantage of DSP is their large weight, besides, they are rather difficult to cut.

To fix the boards, you first need to drill holes. Accordingly, in this case, finishing the facade can hardly be called an easy matter.

Sometimes DSP slabs crack.Cracks can be closed with wood planks. In this case, you will have a facade made in the "half-timbered" style.


Facade materials: metal siding

ideas and options - Instruction + Video Today, you can also find an option when the finishing of a frame house is made with metal siding. This option is also quite appropriate and the finish is even cheaper than using vinyl siding.

The main advantages of using metal siding:

  • is a fairly durable material,
  • it is easy to install,
  • work can be done in a short period of time with your own hands.

However, metal alloy siding has a number of disadvantages associated, first of all, with the material itself from which it is made. The metal can corrode and the coating can scratch, in addition, metal siding shields and heats up.

When installing, be sure to arrange the ventilation gap.

External facade of smartside frame house

ideas and options - Instruction + Video Smartside based on OSB boards is a new material on the Russian market. Fastened to the fa├žade with a ventilation gap.

Its main advantage is that only one side out of four needs to be painted. For coating, acrylic paint is used, which is applied in two layers.

The joints are sealed with acrylic sealant.

In addition, the manufacturers claim that it is a very durable material, and its service life is at least 50 years.

Of course, this is an unnatural material, unlike the same wooden board.

Thus, developers can choose from a variety of options than sheathe the facade of a frame house.

The most important thing is to follow the technology.

Materials for finishing facades of frame houses can be used in a variety of ways.
