What are the trends and ideas in exterior cladding to renovate facades in 2020? Coatings! Fiber cement panels that look a lot like wood but without its disadvantages.
You have ideas with exterior cladding (wood, PVC), but do you still feel like it? And, being a skilled person, you would like to renew it yourself. In short, you are looking for a professional and affordable product that you can easily install on your own. One of the trends in cladding for facades in 2020 meets all these criteria: fiber cement panels, also known as exterior cladding.
Fiber Cement, An Innovative Material
In less than ten years, fiber cement (which is made up of cement, water, cellulose, textile fibers, and air) has emerged as an innovative material. Thanks to this, the weight of the exterior cladding of a house was reduced by a factor of 9. That means 90 tons for a house built with traditional materials (bricks, concrete, etc.) compared to 10 tons for fiber cement. The result is less use of raw materials, less energy, and less waste in exchange for better performance and insulation.
Fiber cement technology produced a high-performance composite material that is thin, light, durable, and strong and has continued to evolve to become one of the most popular types of facades today if it is not the trend in the facade.
The Only Limit Is Your Imagination
There are at least six reasons to choose fiber cement panels. One of these is the ability to customize what the material offers. You may have your shoes or your car customized; now, it is also possible to customize your house’s facade. We have good news for you because 2020 will also be the year when the combination of materials will be the trend for facades and, thanks to exterior cladding, it could not be easier. Thanks to its wood appearance (without having its disadvantages, since fiber cement panels need little maintenance), you can combine them with brick, concrete, plaster, stone, etc. Another trend is to install them vertically. Ultimately, the only limit is your imagination. You will even have a wide variety of colors, from the most traditional to the most eccentric.
