Grey detached house - stylish or boring?

Grey detached house is a stylish option among other shades. Dark shades have long been making their way into wooden facades. Grey and black work well as a façade colour as an alternative to traditional white. Grey is also well suited to private houses in urban environments, away from the forest canopy. The dominant tone of grey can be lightened with glass surfaces or light wood surfaces, for example on the interiors of balconies or terraces.

You can create a lively wooden surface by using several widths on the same wall. Panel widths can vary randomly or follow a predetermined pattern.

Wood as a surface material also offers the designer unlimited possibilities for finishing. For example, window trim can be used to support a modern look or to reinforce the traditional feel of timber construction. Inconspicuous window trims can be used to create a continuous surface of the timber house. Instead, a striking window frame complements the chosen style and makes even small windows a noteworthy detail.

Grey wooden facade

The big decision for a home builder is the facade of his home. Stone house has long been seen as an easy to maintain and carefree surface material, which it certainly is. However, thanks to modern painting technology, wood has taken the lead as a facade material. Panels can be fully painted at the factory. This means that you no longer have to spend the summer holidays painting and can start work in the yard as soon as the façade is installed. For example, with fully pre-painted Siparila TOPCOAT® cladding panels, a facade can be quickly completed without visible nailing.

Wood is also easy to harvest. The facade can be damaged by external impact. Stone and brick are difficult to repair in situ, while damaged wood surfaces can be easily repainted or even a single panel completely replaced with a new one. Wood as a material also offers unlimited architectural options for the designer, both structurally and as a surface material. Wood literally bends into many shapes. Wood is also an ecological building material, sequestering carbon dioxide for decades to come.
