Wood façades lend your house a particularly natural look. However, the properties of natural wood cause the appearance of the façade to change rapidly and start to weather. Those who want to spare themselves the chore of repainting and carrying out regular care and maintenance in future will prefer a high-quality, rear-ventilated aluminium façade in wood effect with a 40-year material guarantee.
Conventional (rendered) façades often become dirty after a relatively short period of time. Even when renovated and freshly painted, they often begin to look old again after just a few years. Extreme weather conditions can impair the façade materials in such a way that they become deformed and warped. Severe winters, hot summers and damp autumn months cause cracks to occur, flaked and faded areas of paint, algae or unsightly discolouration, especially on the northern side of buildings. Genuine wooden façade claddings are also subject to weathering. This leads to unsightly and irregular discolourations that can only be avoided by way of time-consuming regular maintenance of the wood.

For all PREFA aluminium façades, the centuries-old and proven system of non-bearing, rear-ventilated façades is used. For one, this ensures a pleasant indoor climate as a rear-ventilated wall construction can help to regulate the moisture balance and prevent the formation of mould. Also, there are no limits to your creativity during the design phase, and your façades will enjoy an especially long service life.
PREFA aluminium façade systems are extremely versatile in terms of their potential applications. They are suitable for both outdoor and indoor use, e.g. as gable, dormer or soffit cladding, or for car port, balcony, wall or ceiling cladding and much more.
