Outwardly it may seem that the houses are wooden, but it's just a beautiful imitation

Dreaming of a beautiful wooden house, but can not afford to build it? It does not matter, there are a number of coating materials with which an ordinary house will look like wood. I'll tell you what methods performed an imitation of timber, so you can choose the appropriate option, and make your home a "woody".

Actual simulation varieties

illustrations Description of imitation
table_pic_att14932263931 Wood paneling with a flat face. These boards are used for interior walls and ceilings. The product has a cross-sectional shape of "tongue and groove", whereby one board fits snugly into the other.

For more resemblance to log walls, wall paneling, while the interior lining, it is necessary to fill not vertically but horizontally.

table_pic_att14932263972 Plastic panels (plastic lining) with the color of wood. This cladding is only vaguely reminiscent of the board, but with the price of the most affordable options.

Plastic panels have in cross section a groove on one side and the other tongue. If you look at the bar from the end, it is clear that it is hollow. Durability hollow slats provide stiffeners.

table_pic_att14932263993 vinyl siding. Such a decorative material made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). With the application of PVC siding exterior finishing is performed with the device of ventilated facades and warmed.
table_pic_att14932264004 metal siding. Metal cladding similar to vinyl siding, but more durable.

Most often, the metal cladding of the heavy weight is used to trim production and storage facilities, shops, etc.

table_pic_att14932264025 fiber cement siding. This composite finishing material, which is used for exterior finishes. Imitation, as in the photo, different clear beautiful drawing of the wood fibers.

wooden wall paneling

Dimensions fabric: thickness, width and length

Dimensions fabric: thickness, width and length

Benefits:

  • natural material. Finishing boards made from natural wood, but because the house trimmed with imitation beams look very natural.
  • Environmentally friendly. Finishing material is not released into the interior of the substances that are harmful to humans.
  • The smell of wood. Timber - a natural wood paneled walls and therefore will smell like in the wooden frame.

Disadvantages:

  • The tendency to crack. Like any wood tiling batten at fluctuation of humidity and temperature cracking. Prevent cracking allows application of multi-layer lacquer coatings.
  • High price. High-quality wooden paneling is more expensive than the plastic counterparts. The average price of material from 140 to 600 rubles. / M².

Installation of the simulation is performed in several stages of which - packing cross rails (mounting battens) and the installation of siding. Reiki in the crate are put on the same level, to trim did not go in waves. Molded board is mounted on the crate with screws through klyaymery or shoe nails.

The plastic lining

fabric parameters: thickness, width and length

Benefits:

  • Low price. In DIY stores plastic panels that mimic the timber can be purchased at a price from 40 to 400 rubles apiece.
  • Low weight. Due to the hollow design, lightweight plastic panels, which means that at minimum load to surface.
  • easy installation. Plastic panels are installed as easily as wood siding, but due to the low weight, easier to work with plastic.

Disadvantages:

  • Low mechanical strength. Plastic panels are very easy to crumple or break through in case of accidental impact. Traces of such damage will be almost impossible to remove.
It looks like an imitation of timber plastic panels - a practical solution, but it bears little resemblance to natural wood

Plastic panels are installed in the same way as wood paneling. First, wooden sheathing is fastened, and over it stuffed casing.

Most secures the plastic linings on the wall vertically. However, in the bar are more like panels laid horizontally.

vinyl siding

Thickness, width and length of the fabric

Thickness, width and length of the fabric

Benefits:

  • low price. Siding PVC depending on the brand is from 200 to 1,000 rubles / sqm.
  • Low weight. Vinyl siding is lightweight, and because the load on the walls and on the basement low.
  • Great looks. Good vinyl siding at the expense of quality of drawing texture of wood fibers, very precisely simulates the surface of the natural lumber.
  • easy installation. Facade cladding with PVC siding can be from start to finish is made with their own hands, without the involvement of professionals. assembly instruction does not involve the use of special tools.
  • Abrasion resistance. The plastic in the manufacture of monochrome panels, stain thoroughly. So the house of imitation beam for a long time will look like new, because the paint will not peel off from the skin and will not be erased.

The lack of one - a low mechanical strength. But if not intentionally strike the surface paneled walls, an imitation of timber PVC will last a long time.

metal siding

The parameters of the fabric

Benefits:

  • The strength and durability. It has become difficult to deform than plastic, so the siding will last a very long time. As the corrosion protection of metal panels over a solid polymeric coating is applied.

Disadvantages:

  • great weight. Metal interior paneling heavy, and therefore need a rugged sheathing.
  • The complexity of installation. Unlike plastic siding, metal work requires experience. Again, you need a tool to work with metal.

fiber cement siding

Benefits:

  • Fire safety. House steering beam imitation is not afraid of fire, because the fiber cement panels do not burn with both external and on the inside.
  • Easy installation. The procedure is very similar to the mounting technology of wooden bunks. In addition, fiber cement panels cut and drilled as easily as wood.
  • Resemblance to wood. Fiber cement panels that mimic the bar - it is the "wood" decoration material, not made of wood.

Disadvantages:

  • Difficult to find. New material, and therefore is only sold in large stores or to order. The average cost - 1300 rubles / m².
  • great weight. Standard strip cladding length 3.6 meters weighs more than 12 kg. It is the hardest material of all, as I said in the review.
