Finishing the facade of a semi-antique house is the embodiment of all aspects of the retro style in the appearance of the task. The owners of houses and cottages always pay attention to this architectural trend. They want their homes to be as luxurious as the noble estates of the 18th-19th centuries.
Facade of a semi-antique house
For semi-antique facade design, several types of materials can be used:
Aged elements in the facade decoration
Facade decoration with stone
Additional elements for decorating a semi-antique house
Particular attention is paid to the design of the entrance group.
Massive carved balusters are installed on the stairs, the railings are made of materials that emphasize the solidity of the building. Wooden elements are given a scuffed effect with the help of special paints and varnishes.
Porch with columns, antique styling
It is also important how the roof looks. Modern metal tiles and metal profiles are not suitable for a retro-style home. They will contrast with the old-fashioned facade.
Therefore, roofing materials are chosen for the roof that would harmoniously fit into the appearance of the building and emphasize its style. These are ondulin, ceramic and flexible tiles, slate slabs, roofing materials with a polymer coating with a copper tint.

Composite tile roofing
In order to decorate a facade in a retro style, it is not necessary to invite a designer or an architectural specialist. You can carefully examine the photos of estates and castles of the past centuries, stylized antique modern houses. The ideas you like can be realized independently using step-by-step instructions for the installation of various facing materials.
Despite the fact that the facade is decorated in a retro force, modern windows and doors are chosen. If we talk about windows, then most often these are wooden or metal-plastic structures, the profile of which can be of very different colors. Glazing units with a profile, the color of which corresponds to the texture of the wood, is perfect for the facade of the old days.
Frames of a brown shade are well suited to finishing the facade
One of the newfangled trends is aged wooden frames. Thanks to their extraordinary design, they look stylish and presentable.
Wood processing techniques such as brushing and patination allow you to create real masterpieces.
Windows made of wood, gracefully aged with patinating
An excellent solution is the facade decoration in the half-timbered style.It goes well with cladding materials that imitate natural stone, brick or wood. Fachwerk style provides for emphasizing with darker lines of window and door openings, various architectural elements of the building.
Decorative elements of the half-timbered facade
For styling the facade semi-antique, they use this technique: they veneer the corners, door and window openings of the house with panels that imitate natural stone.
The most spectacular series is "wild stone".
Docke-R facade panels
Such panels, as a rule, have several types of colors:
In order for the decoration to emphasize the style of the house, panels of such a color are chosen so that it either contrasts or harmoniously matches the main color of the walls. The "curly" edges of the panels, consisting of individual "bricks" protruding from the canvas, give a special effect to the decoration.
Basement siding "Rubble stone"
This is a basement siding, the range of which includes not only flat, but also corner elements.
These panels imitate surfaces made from natural materials with high precision. The basement siding is made of PVC, the front covering is made of high-strength acrylic-based compounds. It protects the base material from moisture and ultraviolet radiation, so that the color of the siding remains unchanged even under severe operating conditions.
Facing the house with facade panels
Due to their light weight, such panels do not have a significant load on the load-bearing walls and basement of the building. Therefore, siding is ideal for decorating houses that were built many years ago.
An example of using facade panels
Panels of two colors are used to emphasize the architectural features and corners of the building. For example, the main area of the facade is faced with light-colored siding, and those elements that want to highlight are covered with dark. Thanks to the protruding "bricks", the joint of different colors will be "jagged".
Combination of two shades
For facade cladding not only panels are required, but also additional elements. These include:
There are different types of basement siding. For example, siding of the UMB brand has a lower, protruding beyond the boundaries of the main decorative canvas, "substrate". This is the so-called "additional panel", which is needed to mask the joints of different finishing elements.
Basement siding UMB (UMB)
And siding Fineber, Döcke-R, "Alta Profile" do not have such a "backing" ". Therefore, the panels of these brands have reinforced stiffeners.
Docke-R siding is very popular in Russia due to its high quality, attractive appearance and affordable prices
The connection of basement siding panels of different brands has significant differences. But despite this, there are only two options for joining the cladding elements: thorn-groove and "dovetail". There are slight differences in the installation technology. Therefore, having chosen the brand of facing material, you need to obtain instructions for its installation at the outlet.
DÖCKE-R façade panel collections

|FELS (ROCK)|| From 544 rub.
|BERG (MOUNTAIN)||From 475 rubles.|
|BURG (CASTLE)||From 544 rub.| Docke-R facade panels
|For marking the surface||For sawing finishing and building materials||For installation work|
Hacksaw for metal (can be replaced with a saw with a blade with a fine tooth)
Pencil or marker
Step 1. Preparing surfaces for cladding.
First of all, they carefully examine the walls.
If the walls are wooden (including OSB), they are treated with an antiseptic. This requires a spray bottle or long-handled roller.
Step 2. Installing the windscreen.
Cut the webs of the windproof film.
Using staples and a construction stapler, attach them to the wall of the house. Observe an overlap with a width of 7-10 cm.
Installation of wind vapor barrier
Step 3. Build the first level crate , consisting of metal profiles or wooden bars. The tree is covered with 1-2 layers of antiseptic.
Scheme of wooden lathing
The step between the vertical battens of the lathing should not exceed 40 cm.
Securing the wooden lathing
Attaching the vertical posts.Use a screwdriver and self-tapping screws.
Fixing hangers for metal lathing
Installation of guides
Step 4. Installation of insulation.
Cut insulation sheets and install them between the frame slats.
Step 5 . Installation of vapor barrier.
By analogy with laying a windproof film, a vapor barrier is attached.
Installation of a diffuse membrane
Installation of suspensions.
Galvanized suspensions are attached to the posts of the first level of the lathing with a step of 50-60 cm.
Step 7. Installation of the second level lathing.
Installation of the second level battens
Step 8 . Markup.
Using the water level, find the lowest point located above the plinth (if the cladding will start from the plinth) or the wall (if the cladding will be led from the blind area).
Mark with a marker. Using the same level, points are found in other corners of the house, located on the same horizontal line with this mark. Connect the marks either with a straight line drawn with a marker, or beat off the line with a chalk cord.
Step 9 . Installation of lower horizontal strips.
Between the vertical posts of the second level of the crate, horizontally laid inserts of the same material as the main posts are fixed. These strips are needed to strengthen the frame.
Horizontal battens inserts
Step 10. Installation of the remaining horizontal battens of the second level of the battens.
The spacing between the planks should match the height of the siding panels.
Setting the jumpers
Step 11. Installing the starting plates.
The starting siding strips are attached to the lower horizontal strips. In the corners of the house, special corner starting strips are attached.
Starting strips, installation
Installation of the J-profile.
The J-profile strips are fixed with a screwdriver and self-tapping screws to the vertical and horizontal strips of the second level batten. Thus, the elements of the wall, window and door openings are distinguished. Between the J-profile strips, panels of a contrasting color are installed.
Installing the J-profile
Installing the panels.
The panels are installed starting from the lower left point of the wall. In order for the cladding layer to be durable, the length of the first and last panel along the horizontal line must be at least 200 mm. Siding trimming is performed using a grinder.
Trimming the panel
The first panel is installed on the starting profile as follows.
so that the bottom notch (groove) of the siding goes into the spike of the starter bar.Next, the panel is attached to the posts of the crate with self-tapping screws through the holes in the nail strip. Leave a 1 mm gap between the siding and the head of the fastener.
Screw-in screw scheme
The next panel in the same way is installed on the starting plate and close to the first panel. Fasten the second panel with self-tapping screws and continue the siding set.
Angle profile installation
Finishing of window openings is performed in the same way as for siding
Installing the last row panels
Having reached the top of the wall, cut the last panels along the width of the gap and install the finishing strip. Cornices and frontal overhangs are sheathed with special additional elements: front J-profile.
