Facades can be comprised of a range of different substrates which all have one thing in common; they all need to be protected from the elements in one way or another

Two of the factors involved in facade coating are:

  • Protection of the substrate from moisture by the primer and build coat
  • Decorative and protective role of the topcoat.

A number of types of building materials are used for facades. Some of the main ones are:

  • Compressed fibre cement
  • Metal and Aluminium composite panel
  • Glass reinforced concrete

All the above elements can be coated for aesthetics and durability in a range of different coating systems.
