wood or conwood facade

Postby Sunpax » Wed Nov 16, 2011 6:11 am

is it possible to put planks on the externe wall , direct on the blocks without the need to make a render first ?

what about all the little "animals" between the wall and the planks ?

How to seal the planks together ?


Until now doesn't find any informations on the net !

Thancks a lot

generally - yes
what performance is achieved is another issue.
What type wall- standard breeze blocks? Doubtful for long term service. The std. Breeze block is very weak, go look at an naked constructed pwall. U likely will see several holes develop over time. Also when std breeze blocks are unloaded look at how easily they fall apart. It is the render and interally placed steels rods that develop the strength. This my observation.
The stronger blocks i havent any experience.
Perhaps consider framing to your cement columns and beams. But this begs a second issue of sun's UV action on plastic's. Possible the conwood coating/ painting- is sufficient but have seen examples where it has notwithstood sun.

no, it will look shite, you need to make sure the wall you are placing it on is flat and level.
i can guarantee that your wall is not,
but hey, just do it.

as in?
The light brown or the dark? Maybe yellow or green?
Or the flat pasty?, perhaps lumpy? Or the dayold?
Hi s'lid,
is it possible to improve the description?

pooh's pooh at the end of the day, regardless of colour or consistancy.
:(
the surface needs to be flat, either by framing it with pretreated timber or a fabricated steel frame, the timber or fibre board is then glued/screwed/nailed to the frame.
of course window frames etc have all been installed with this in mind 8)

Why not use Shera planks for your siding. Not sure how you would attach it to the walls, I guess you could attach steel studs every 24 inches and then attach the planks to them. You may even have enough space between the studs to put insulation.
