How to replace the wooden façade through other materials

Plaster instead of wood

Cleaning facades are particularly popular as they are favorable and only about every ten years need to be renewed. At the latest at this age, the plaster begins to be brittle and crumbly. As with the wood façade, the stresses through weathering and environmental influences in fine cracks and other damage can also be shown on the plaster in fine cracks and other damage even before the usual renovation intervals. Crafted builders can create a simple plaster itself and save the costs of a specialist company.
