Facade, exterior covering
Exterior facade coatings are also used to complement the architectural style of building aesthetically, while at the same time providing effective protection against outside weather conditions such as rain, wind, snow, sun, which damage houses. Exterior wall covering is the most reduced in sound transmission, providing heat and water insulation also extends the life of the building.
The coating materials are generally selected and applied in accordance with the design and aesthetic appearance of the building. Exterior facades in countries such as America, Canada and Australia are widely used in Turkey (depending on the thermal conditions), such as wood, prekast, american siding, marble coating, composite (alucobont), granite, aluminum, natural stone and glass facade ) Along with wooden exterior façades, american siding exterior façades are used.
PROPERTIES OF EXTERIOR COATING MATERIALS
- Resistant to the chemical effects of the atmosphere,
- The harmful effects of the sun's rays are not spoiled,
- Not to be damaged by expansion and contraction due to temperature differences,
- Not to be spoiled by precipitation waters and not to contain water,
- Not to be damaged by frost,
- They must have basic characteristics such as preventing internal steam coming out from the inner surface.
HOW TO EXTERNAL FACING ?
Subaccount Profile Implementation:
The dimensions of the subassembly profile are determined according to the thickness of the plasterboard to be used. The profile wall is adjusted in such a way as to form a smooth line with the water level and fixed with anchor.
Bonding of Coating Plates:
The prepared bonding mortar is applied by the panel frame method and is placed as a surprising (brick lining) so that there is no gap starting from the bottom of the outer surface. Care should be taken that the adhesive does not overlay the edges of the plates.
Roofing of Coating Plates:
Plastic anchors are used as mechanical fasteners to prevent wind and turbulence effects. The number of plugs to be used is determined and applied according to plate type, weather conditions and building properties. It is applied in the middle of the wall of the wall of the fender and in correspondence with the joints joined with the other plates.
Edge and Corner Applications:
Edges and corners are the areas that are most affected by mechanical stress and must be protected. To protect this area and reduce the risk of cracking, an aluminum or textured plastic corner profile should be used.
Filamentous Plaster Application:
Coating fluid is applied on the plates with steel trowel. The files should be buried in the plaster when the plaster is fresh and dry. In order to prevent possible cracks, 10 cm should be applied on top of each other at joints of the net. The thickness of the applied plaster should be 3-4 mm on two floors.
Decorative Final Coating:
After the first layer of plaster is completely dry, a textured top coat can be applied. It is advised not to apply under suitable weather conditions as it will lose material properties in rainy weather. Adequate number of employees should be applied quickly without interruption.
Exterior Paint Application:
The application of paint on exterior surfaces should be applied to the facade with brush, roller or spray as two layers.
