Today's construction is characterized by a manifestation of increased attention to the decoration of facades of buildings and structures. But not one attention activates the process. Through the use of completely new materials, a potential builder can create an original attractive appearance. And in some cases, you can refuse to use expensive natural materials, due to the possibility of simulating the latter.
Inexpensive beam imitation: photos of residential buildings
Today, the finishing option, which allows you to simulate a natural tree, is quickly gaining popularity. In particular, the technology of finishing “under the beam” is of particular interest. In this case, the owner of the home has a good opportunity to acquire a house from the “timber”, which will look no worse than the real one - timber, but on the other hand, in terms of financial costs, it will cost the owner much cheaper.
Actually, a dwelling built exclusively from natural material provides the user not only with comfort and prestige, but also with a lot of worries. Not only will a tidy sum of money be required for the construction of such a house, but additionally during the period of operation, in order to maintain the good condition of the wood, you will have to spend money on multilateral service :
- fire protection of natural conditions;
- antifungal treatment;
- sterilization from wood insect grinders.
If you resort to the technology of finishing a residential building or any other, using wooden planks that are planed in a certain way, you can “kill” two birds with one stone - get an attractive facade and limit yourself to quite acceptable financial costs.
Indeed, the imitation of timber imitation does not show the presence of ordinary wooden boards in the photo , the image of the real building material is so accurately repeated. However, in reality - these are just planed boards with a chamfer and a profile that repeats the shape of a bar .
Advantages of wood trim
The financial benefits are obvious. But besides this, it is necessary to highlight a number of advantages that a builder who dared to turn to this material gets:
- environmental friendliness
- aesthetic look
- ease of installation
From an environmental point of view , the use of material, of course, is accompanied by the creation of a favorable atmosphere for home owners, given the moment that the board is made from natural raw materials, which are obtained from pine, spruce, larch and other tree species. For the natural environment, the fact of finishing with imitation of timber also does no harm.
If we take into account the aesthetic component , the design of the board to some extent even looks more advantageous in comparison with a full-fledged material. Still, the laying of real wooden blocks, and even more so logs, entails some inaccuracy due to the spread in the value of the cross sections of these materials. The board in size fully complies with a single standard.
A profile board is a material with pronounced functionality . Such qualities are manifested in the form of good properties of noise insulation, moisture insulation, thermal insulation . The material reliably protects the walls of buildings and structures from mechanical or physical influences. The finish effectively hides various wall defects.
Finally, considering the procedure for performing installation works , each home owner will discover a simple truth - finishing work can be done easily and simply without the help of specialists.
Laying profile boards provides for the fastening of individual copies on the basis of the "groove - spike" principle. In this version, special installation skills are not required, and therefore even an inexperienced layman is able to complete construction on his own.
What else is noteworthy trim imitation timber?
One of the pronounced advantages of a profile board, as already noted, is the low cost of finishing production with this material. So, if we consider not a single object - a residential building, but a full-fledged economy, where usually there are several buildings, the role of imitation in this case increases many times. For relatively little money, the owner of the compound receives the opportunity to finish all the buildings at once . Of course, the game is worth the candle, when within the framework of the budget it is possible to finish the whole economy immediately. To create, so to speak, a real Russian compound, decorated in a single style “under the beam”.
Also, when considering the properties of the material, the possibilities of manufacturing from various raw materials were noted. A really profiled board can be made, as they say, from which the soul desires. However, in practice, the most widely used product is a pine- based product with the following properties:
- nice shade;
- beautiful texture;
- delicate aromatic odor;
- beneficial effects on health.
Here are the four main advantages of raw materials, due to which the popularity of timber imitation finishes is growing , where even the photos express the qualities of pine. The physical and chemical properties of pine material also clearly stand out among other wood materials.
Imported or domestic product?
Until some time, the market for profiled boards was confidently controlled by foreign manufacturers. However, as the reorganization and modernization of domestic woodworking enterprises took place, the situation began to gradually change.
Russian products also appeared on sale. Today, quite often you can find a profiled board of Russian production. Naturally, more satisfying the buyer at a price, but not inferior in quality to the foreign counterpart. What does the consumer choose? Photos will help to see construction sites, where the imitation of timber is presented.
