Or sectional house facade is the first part that looks from the outside, either by those who merely pass in front of the house or by a guest who came to visit. The first impression that is displayed confirms the homeowner’s personality and how the fabric interior in the house.
Which must be considered in structuring the first, facade is the proper selection of materials, whether paint, ceramic, granite, wood and natural stone. Each material has advantages and disadvantages.
Paint the walls, the advantage is the ease of application when compared with other materials. In terms of treatment, paint the walls also have the advantage because now many types of wall paints that contain little oil, so it is easy to clean when exposed to dirt and stains.
Kind was very varied for exterior paints, such as leak-proof paint which already contains color, paint which can keep the sun’s heat from entering into the house, paint with colourguard so the color does not quickly fade. When you get bored with the color of your house, you just replace it with a new color.
Disadvantages of the remaining life of paint is lower than other materials, if low-quality workmanship will be easily peeling paint or even the color looks faded and discolored.
Both the ceramic and granite, the excess is a pretty strong durability against friction, sunlight and weather. Maintenance is easy and resistant to dirt. Nowadays a lot of ceramic and granite motifs that resemble natural stone, with a variety of sizes making it easier for the designer or architect in exploring their ideas.
The drawback is as good as any motive and tekstur still can not exactly resemble natural stone or wood, because of the “window frame” (white ceramic side edges that are not printed motif / do not print colors) on a partial motive. Not to mention the variations in thickness which reduces installation method (can not plug the back and forth like the natural stone). Poor workmanship that will affect the appearance, such as tile grout (the distance between the ceramic / granite) that do not neatly aka small or even large surfaces arising sink / not flat. When bored with the looks, the process of replacing it is more difficult when compared with the paint material.

The drawback, there are several types of wood that is resistant to weather, but expensive. There also are always wet or removing the sap, not to mention they are not termite resistant. Treatment is rather difficult because of the color or the protective layer must be updated every 6-12 months.
Latter is a natural stone material, the excess there are many types of stone and color can be applied. It looks sturdy but natural, its placement can be creative as possible. Many stone carvings that can be made more attractive appearance, like carving to the wall as well as a lantern / lamp park.
The drawback is in terms of maintenance and installation. For some types of natural stone when exposed to semen or stains will be difficult to clean (have to use a brush or wire brush). Every 6-12 months should always be given a protective coating to maintain its color and its surface no moss. The installation must also be good to avoid any time regardless of the wall or floor.

Depending on the homeowner to decorate the facade of their homes according to their personalities and tastes, even more may be adjusted with the allocation of their funds. All materials that can be combined to apply depends on the creativity of designers, architects or homeowners themselves.
