Coloring the facade

Coloring the facade

The exterior wall color of a house is exposed to various weather-related burdens and impurities. Wetness can penetrate through plaster and masonry, in case of frost, the penetrated water can even blow up the plaster.

Color the outer walls: What should be considered?

A good coat of paint is the best protection for the walls! Exterior wall paint is dirt and water repellent to look fresh and strong for a long time while protecting your masonry. They are also typically resistant to mildew and moss so as to ensure a good indoor climate.

Before painting, the substrate must be dry, strong and clean, otherwise the paint can not be applied properly and its beneficial properties will not be good unfolded. Especially new masonry, plaster and concrete surfaces must be professionally dried. Small plaster damage should be repaired before applying a primer to the substrate. Subsequently, two coats are usually carried out. Depending on how the facade is designed, different products must be chosen. Consult with your painter about the possibilities.

Special: paint for your garage concrete walls!

Usually garage walls are not very handsome, mostly in a monotonous gray. But that does not have to stay that way: There are special colors for garage concrete walls that can beautify garage walls. It should be noted in advance that the color on the one hand must withstand the weather conditions and the environmental influences, on the other hand, the high water vapor permeability is extremely important. Similarly, late damage in the form of algae or frost damage must be avoided. But there are different colors and techniques: Colored spray or rolling plaster are probably the simplest variants to enhance the color of a garage. Glazes impregnate and pigment the outer wall and thus protect it from the weather. As a preliminary work, a primer with a pure acrylate paint is necessary, which gas-tightly coats the concrete. Fotobeton offers a very extravagant and individual solution: motifs of any kind are brought onto the concrete surface by means of the photolithic process or the vectogram / milling technique. However, this refinement, due to the process engineering, is rather cost-intensive.
