Convert your House into Home
Everyone wants to have a home which holds a decorative finish to it, but more often than not, they need extra goods and material for decorative or weatherproofing purposes. For instance, a brick or stone wall is probably one of the most likable walls ever and it provides structure and finishes, but on the contrary, a wood frame or block wall is also very much a delightful sight and it needs to be stuccoed or covered in siding. Such things are mandatory. To be very much honest, for most homeowners, the engaging systems and techniques for these coverings become relevant only when they are faced with repairs. You will need to understand how these coverings are created if you want to match them on an extension, or if you wish to refurbish an entire section.

Stucco is the fine plaster used for coating wall surfaces or molding into architectural decorations. This has the potential to be applied directly to blocks or bricks, or onto metal laths (sheets of wire mesh that help adhesion) to provide a decorative, weatherproofing coat that protects a wall’s structure. There happens to be many finishing options, which takes in count the smooth stucco, the smoothest of stucco finishes with some slight texture; Patterned stucco, a smooth stucco that can be tooled to produce various patterns; Rough, a uniform rough finish that is applied over smooth stucco; and Pebbledash, which is achieved by throwing pebbles onto damp stucco.

Make your home an eye candy
Siding is often found on newest houses, forming the outer layer of a wall and filling the cavities in it. Some homes are partially covered in siding for decorative effect — boards can be placed horizontally or vertically — but siding also performs a vital weatherproofing function. Boards have the option to be made of wood, but synthetic alternatives as the likes of fiber cement board, vinyl, and aluminum are also available. They can be painted and bear less maintenance expense than wood. Metal-based boards are usually attached to the house with special clips and channels, bought with the boards. And we at Acumen Interior ensure that your house delves in nothing less than a palace. And wins the jealous accolades and appreciation of all the onlookers.
Typically siding that is the one which is most prominent in use is installed from bottom to top, nailed to plywood sheathing through a building paper. Each product has the leverage of its own benefits and special installation instructions. These products and their use and installation can include tools and techniques for making installation more user-friendly, and some require air spaces or nailing strips. Such cases include feather-edge boards with breather paper and vertical furring strips; tongue-and-groove boards with ply-board sheathing and breather paper; shiplap boards; and shingles with vertical furring strips beneath horizontal strips.

Green Cladding Options
You should and you must take into consideration the green options when choosing cladding for your external walls. Reclaimed wood could be the best option for you, for a case, or just do the bit to ensure that any new lumber you use derives its authority from a sustainable source.
Aluminum cladding which got its inception from recycled aluminum rather than a virgin source is another viable option. For clay tiles, visit a reclamation yard, as reuse is the most eco-friendly option and may save you money. While cement board is not the greenest option, if you are determined to use it, find manufacturers that use high quantities of recycled material. And we do it all with our exterior designs.
