Residences and buildings, in general, are usually coated with plaster top coats. These coatings, as well as the building as a whole, are affected by:
- Temperature related expansions and contractions
- Vibrations and shocks
- Pollutants (industrial, environmental etc.)
- Faulty preparation of the plaster
- Faulty workmanship
- Poor material quality
- Adverse weather conditions (intense sunlight, rain, snow, frost)
For most of us, the motivation to restore the exterior of a building starts mainly for aesthetic reasons. However, the care of the exterior must be a matter of particular concern to us, as it is a fundamental concern regarding the protection of the entire building or home.
