Types of Facades
Facades can be either finished on natural stone , or covered with plaster and paint or with marble or granite. In all cases one has to protect them from rising damp , clean them from bacterial attack such as mold ,algi , moss, efflorescence or environmental dirt . Furthermore the facades have to be protected from all natural and environmental hazards , such as sun ,acid rain , traffic pollution etc.,
Cleaning and Treatment
Natural stone facade finish like the Maltese way, fuq il-fiel, facade would first be cleaned from mold or environmental dirt by applying Desca 100 to remove the dark mold, then apply Bacta Off to kill the remaining bacterial and finally finished protection with excellent products, breathable water repellents, namely Impermeabilzante 10AG or Hum Prot Mat.
One important issue that a plasterer has to check when doing facades , be it marble ,granite or paint, he must check the negative pressure situation on the facade. In any case irrelevant to the amount of negative or positive pressures one should kill these pressures by applying good quality products.
For levelling of walls , we recommend Tecmadry RPA plaster for Frakas finish – Silica sand . If a smoother look is needed we have Prehmor Cosmetico . Both products would control the negative pressure and Tecma Paint Fachadas or Silicatos will be your best option as finishing paints, and both paints can give you long years of service.
