Looking at one's own home and feeling that bit of pride and admiration is what everyone wants. And the main responsibility for this feeling is the front of the house, the business card of every residence.
The front of the house can be thought and executed in different ways, starting from shapes and volumes to the materials and colors used in its finish.
It turns out that often the facade of the house is left for later, there to that time when the work is almost over. In these cases there are not many alternatives left but a painting or a different type of coating.
So the tip here is: if you want a façade to call your own start planning it right at the beginning of the building, taking into consideration that structures like roof, doors and windows directly influence the front perspective of the house.
Even those simple house fronts need all this planning? Yes, even the simplest of houses can and deserves to have an incredible facade, without necessarily bursting the budget of the work. To achieve this balance between aesthetics and budget you just have to choose the right materials.
But if you have already kicked off and are arriving at the end of the building or are just looking to renovate the front of your house, do not worry. Still, it is possible to plan a façade worth attracting the most different looks. For this, see below a list with the main materials for facade cladding and the average price of each one:
Materials for front of houses
1. Bricks for front of houses
The apparent brickwork is super high in architecture and interior decoration and can be successfully used in front of houses. The bricks give that touch of rusticity, but at the same time they are modern and uncluttered. You can choose to coat the entire facade with them, make only a vertical strip or other detail that you find interesting.
You can still opt for two versions of brick: the brick itself or a ceramic tile that mimics the brick. Both options are economical and financially viable. In the first case, about 500 clay bricks cost an average of R $ 600. Meanwhile, the average price of a good quality coating is around R $ 41 per square meter.
2. Stones in front of houses
Stones are another great option for facade cladding. Available in different colors, sizes and textures, the stones can be used throughout the facade or in only punctual details. Depending on the color and other materials that accompany the stone, you can give a more modern or rustic touch to the front of the house. For example, stone and glass reflects a more sophisticated facade, since the combination of wood and stone results in a rustic and welcoming front.
Among the options of stones for façade are São Tomé, Miracema, Slate and the Iron Stone. The average price of decorative stones varies greatly with respect to the treatment and the cut given to them. But just to get an idea, the square meter of São Tomé stone in mosaic format costs approximately R $ 120.
3. Wood for front of houses
Wood is that timeless material that fits perfectly into any architectural proposal. The biggest problem with wood in facades of houses is that it requires constant maintenance in order to avoid damages by the action of the sun, rain and insects, such as termites. The average price of each slat is R $ 28.
4. Porcelain tile for front of houses
Who wants to opt for practicality, ease and speed in the completion of the front of the house can bet on the porcelain tile. The ceramic floor fulfills this function very well, not to mention that it is a durable material, durable and practically does not require maintenance.
Another advantage of porcelain tile is that it reproduces very well materials such as wood, stone and brick. The price is another attraction, although there are significant differences between different brands. But in general it is possible to buy a good quality porcelain tile to the front of the house paying an average price of $ 60 a square meter.
5. Concrete for front of houses
High on modern architectural designs, the apparent concrete is a great choice for anyone who wants to leave the front of the house full of style and personality, especially when the architecture is aligned with the material, otherwise the facade may give the impression of unfinished .
Because it is a rustic and unfinished facade, the apparent concrete becomes one of the most economical options that exists and the price of a facade of this type is more related to the manpower of the one who executes than in the materials themselves.
6. Painting for front of houses
Good old fashioned painting can be used in the most sophisticated and simplest designs. The color combination is what will make all the difference in that case. You can opt for a single color throughout the front of the house or else combine tone on tone, contrasting colors and even shapes and designs on walls and walls. Creativity has no limit here.
A good quality paint of 18 liters, capable of covering an area of up to 380 square meters, costs $ 350.
7. Glass front of houses
Another option of material to leave the facade of the house beautiful is the glass. The material can be used to create walls, large windows, guardrails and even walls. However, depending on where it is used, the glass can put the privacy of the residents in check.
The glass facade is a great alternative for anyone who wants a clean and modern home front. When combined with materials such as stone and wood, the front of the house gains a rustic and elegant air, if the combination is metal, the facade is modern and futuristic.
The cost of a glass facade is determined directly with the company responsible, as it offers both labor and material.
8. Metal for front of houses
Finally, the metal or steel. The material is durable, durable and gives the front of the house a sophisticated look, modern and funky at the same time. Widely used in modern architecture projects, metal is the perfect choice for anyone who wants to innovate and make an impact.
The metal can be used in front of the house as a detail of the architecture or as wall cladding, in which case one of the best options is steel corten, a kind of rust-proof steel but with a corrosion resistance three times higher than the common steel.
Cruel doubt is not it? Amidst so many possibilities it is difficult to decide which material to use to finish the front of the house. But one thing is certain, the decision must be based on what the residents feel most at ease. It is no use a modern facade of glass and steel, if the locals really like it is the rusticity of wood and stone. Evaluate personal tastes first and then leave for the final verdict.
