Many important decisions need to be made when building a home. One of them is to choose between the use of the apparent roof or the flat roof. By the way, do you know what platinum is and what is it for? What are the advantages and disadvantages of such facade ? So follow this post to the end and stay on top of everything you need to know about platibanda.
What is platibanda? What is it for?
Plautbanda is a kind of mureta used for the purpose of hiding the roof, forming a flat frame around the facade of the house. But why hide the roof? This is a question you may be asking yourself. The main objective of the platibanda is to create a façade of straight lines favoring a very common clean aesthetic to be observed in the modern architecture, main responsible for the popularization of the platibandas.
What is Beiral in architecture?
In architecture, the eaves are a feature used in facades that have an apparent roof. The eaves form the lower part of the roof, projecting out of the outer wall in order to protect it from rainwater and solar rays.
What is the difference between eavesdropping?
The main difference between eaves and plankton is the protection that the eave offers to the walls, which does not necessarily happen with the plankton unless it is built with recoil against the walls.
Another significant difference between both is aesthetics. The facade with plankton is modern and bold, while a house with roof and eaves is classic and conveys that warm feeling of home.
It is also worth mentioning that the platybanda is a vertical structure, while the eave is a horizontal cover.
How to calculate the height of a plank?
The height of the roof should follow the angle of inclination of the roof. Most roofs made of asbestos cement tiles have a slope of 10%, ie a roof four meters wide should have a minimum slope of 40 centimeters. The platibanda follows the same reasoning and should be, in the case of the previous example, over 40 centimeters and can reach up to 1.2 meters in height depending on what the designer evaluates.
What is platybanda gutter?
The gutter rail is custom built and installed between the gutter and the roof to catch all the rainwater falling on the house. The gutters are very important in this type of façade, since the water has nowhere to drain naturally.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of platibanda?
One of the main advantages of plankton is the aesthetic result that it offers, especially for those who are looking for a modern project. The panels also stand out due to the great variety of finishes that can be made. You can choose different colors, textures and materials to coat the tile, leaving the facade of the house even more beautiful.
Another advantage that weighs in favor of the use of plankton is the economy. You can save a lot of money by using asbestos cement tiles, as the roof will be hidden. The timber also decreases on this type of roof and thus saves you more money.
However, it will be necessary to invest in the hiring of specialized labor, in the construction of the platibanda and in the placement of gutters. Another important detail that needs to be quoted is that the flatbed may even be more financially viable at the construction stage, but later maintenance of the flatbed is often more expensive than that of a conventional roof. This is because the walls should be painted more often, as they are exposed to rain and the sun, and have a greater tendency to suffer from infiltration and humidity.
Another feature that can be considered a disadvantage is that the flat roof does not protect the walls of the house against moisture and solar radiation, unless the walls are built backwards in relation to the flat roof.
Modern, the facade with plankton is a great resource for those who want a house with differentiated design, especially here in Brazil where the use of platibanda is not so common. If you have not decided yet, if your hobby is the right model for your project, we'll give you a hand.
