Refurbish the facade: you should definitely remember that!

The renovation of a façade often turns out to be a complex project, the dimensions of which are hardly for the layman to foresee. Therefore, it is important for the homeowner to inform himself thoroughly before he actually tackles the matter. The exterior façade not only represents the visual "skin" of a property, it should also withstand wind and weather and help save energy.

Look carefully: Which renovation measures are necessary?

Maybe you just want to paint your façade and maybe repair some holes, but it's not always done that way. Especially if there are flaws and cracks, it may well be possible that more plaster removals will follow soon.

Therefore, check the stability of the facade coating by means of a tapping and adhesive tape test in order to avoid painting a dilapidated wall. In addition, it may well be in your interest to review the energetic situation of your house facade in order to take it with you if necessary.

And of course there is the question of the water resistance of the outer walls: Possibly, for example, in clinker, a water repellency due. Remember, too, that ancient windows and doors stand out on a newly renovated façade, and perhaps should also be replaced.

The maximum U-value must thereafter be 0.24 W / (m² · K)! However, there are exceptions to the rule, which can be obtained, for example, from the local building authority. Make sure you are already smart before you begin with the renovation of the facade!
