Perceived as the exterior wall of a building, the facade is also its most visible part.
While at first glance, facades are only aesthetical enhancements of a building, enormous amounts of expert knowledge are necessary to achieve a durable and properly implemented facade. Most facades have numerous elements such as plinths, reveals, loggias and balconies, attic walls, joints with overhangs and pitched roofs, where each and every one must be designed and executed by exact rules. The key factor in properly implementing any of the above is the appropriate choice of thermal insulation.
The choice of thermal insulation type depends mostly on the final facade layer. Usually, investors choose between a rendered facade, a facing – or visible – brick facade or a cladded facade.
