Rehabilitation of the façade of a single-family house using the VIPEQ® F08 cork cladding.
The facade was painted on a mortar support. Plastic paints degrade quickly due to climatic agents and pollution. For this reason, we first proceeded to carry out an abrasive stripping by dry sandblasting and then a high pressure cleaning. By applying the pressure sandblasting technique on the façade, it is possible to prepare the surface for the subsequent cork cladding. Fissures and cracks were then repaired with lime mortar.
Once the support was prepared, the sprayed cork was coated in a thin layer. The colors chosen in this project were VIPEQ® F08 off-white and VIPEQ® F08 burgundy. Highlight the work done on the base where the sore was kept between stones.
The rehabilitation of facades with VIPEQ® natural cladding is simple and durable. The sprayed cork is deformable and absorbs the movements of the microcracks. It is breathable, lets the wall breathe avoiding interior condensation and is impervious to rainwater. It is decorative and durable with a 10-year warranty.
