Home exterior finishing: the icing on the cake
The exterior finishing for homes is quite essential to give a good impression and delivers the style statement of your home. It creates and gives a definition to the way your home looks to the viewers from the outside. A shabby looking house doesn’t seem inviting. The first thing that appears is the exterior look of the house and it gives the first impression of what your home may look like inside. Home owners usually focus more on the interior design of the home and neglect the exterior finishing. Exterior finishing is more than just looks, it provides waterproofing and other facilities which are essential for the building to last for longer time. The paint on the exterior wall takes all the heat, dust, rain and all the climatic extremes, so it becomes important to maintain the exterior finish. The exterior walls should be repainted every 3 or 5 years. A proper exterior finishing can act as a strong protective armour to the house.
Here are some home exterior finishing tips:
1. Choose a windless day to apply the exterior finishing.
2. The surfaces must be clean and dry to apply the finish.
3. Follow the instructions given by the manufacturer of the finish materials and adhere to proper protective measures while using them.
4. Only use bristle brushes as metal wire brushes may damage the exterior texture.
5. Choose those finish materials which offer waterproofing and ultraviolet protection.
6. Moisture is an important factor in the failure of the finishes, so make sure that there is minimal moisture on the walls.
7. To avoid nail stains, use only high dipped galvanized nails.
Like the schemes for interior designing, there are schemes for home exterior designs too. These designs determine the look of the home and indicate the proper use of proper materials to achieve the design. The parts of the home like garage door finishing and exterior windows are also given by the design for the home. The stucco is the most commonly used exterior finishing material owing to the number of advantages it offers. The method of application of stucco is different for different surfaces. If you intend to design your home exteriors with rocks and bricks, make sure it is done before applying the stucco. The siding also forms an important part of the exterior design and has a great impact on the overall aesthetic appeal of the house
