Who wants a facade beautiful to live, raise your hand! Well, no point denying, the dream of a beautiful, cozy and comfortable house starts right at the entrance.
Many say that the facade is the business card of the property, after all it is there that visitors will have the first contact with the house and receive a preview of what is to come in the interior.
But make no mistake, thinking that in order to have a beautiful and well planned façade you will have to shell out a lot of money. On the contrary, with the wide variety of materials available on the market you can quietly reconcile beauty with functionality and economy.
And that is exactly what we are going to present you in this post: several possibilities of facade cladding with options for all tastes and pockets. Check out:
Facade cladding: corten steel
Maybe the name sounds kind of weird at first, but do not be scared. The corten steel is nothing more than a steel plate available in different sizes and formats. The main difference between corten steel and ordinary steel is the rusty appearance of the material. This rusting tone of the corten steel is obtained thanks to an oxide film that adheres to the plates and prevents the formation of corrosive agents, guaranteeing protection against corrosion and the action of time.
This feature makes steel corten up to three times more resistant than ordinary steel, making it an excellent choice for facades, since the material is durable and requires little maintenance.
However, prepare the pocket because the corten steel is an expensive coating. The average price of the square meter is R $ 150.

Facade coating: galvanized sheet
Still within the options of metallic coatings exists the plate galvanized. You've probably heard of this material, which you may not know is that it can be used for facade cladding.
The galvanized sheet is a zinc coated steel plate on both sides in order to protect the metal from corrosion. The silver appearance of galvanized sheet makes it a great choice for modern and futuristic style facades.
Another advantage of galvanized sheet is its durability, strength and low price. To get an idea, a sheet of galvanized steel in the measure of three meters for one costs, on average, R $ 90.

Facade cladding: wood
Wood is one of the most versatile options available for facade cladding. It fits in the most different architectural designs, from the most rustic to the most modern. Not to mention that it gives the residence an incomparable cozy and warm air.
However, in order for the facade wood to remain always beautiful, frequent maintenance is required, including the application of varnish and products that prevent the proliferation of insects and mold. With due care, the wooden facade has remained flawless for many years.

Painting is the most commonly used option for finishing facades. It can be simple, textured or applied in tone on tone. The variety of colors is another great attraction of the painting, you can choose the colors you want for your house. The ink allows this.
However, painting requires frequent maintenance since the paint tends to peel, stain and lose color over time. The choice of the right paint also makes all the difference to the painting of the facade. Choose water-based acrylic paints that resist the effects of rain, sun and moisture.
Another feature that makes painting one of the most used coatings for facade is the price. An 18-gallon gallon of Suvinil brand acrylic paint, for example, costs $ 340 with an average yield of up to 380 square feet.
