Advantages and disadvantages of the “I Facade” system

“I am facade” – these are the front panels produced by the Russian Grand Line company specializing in the production of facing structures for low-rise and cottage construction in Europe and the Russian Federation. Panels possess texture, imitating stone and brick, thanks to which are a popular solution in the private sector.


To compare with competing materials for lining houses: vinyl siding, stone (no matter, natural or not), baseline siding, and also Metal siding and professional flooring, the “Facade” panels have a number of indisputable advantages.

  • The “Facade” panels may not be simply smooth, but textured. So, they will be able to fully replace and imitate brick or stone masonry. Modern metal siding are also produced by perforated or having coloring under natural textures, but are not a complete imitation of natural materials.

  • Painting panels will be durable: it is not washed away and does not fade under the rays of the sun. In the manufacture of panels, professional dyes are used for the guaranteed result.
  • The company provides a lifelong guarantee of the quality of its products to a number of essential characteristics. “I am a facade” is the only brand of external finishing materials that uses such warranty conditions. In order for them to be performed, the following factors are needed: the storage and transportation of panels were carried out in accordance with the recommendations and rules of the manufacturer, were used only for direct purpose, and the installation was carried out by builders with a license and subject to instruction manual.

  • With the designs of “Facade” you can not be afraid of wind. For installation, a special castle with the speaking name “Antismerch” is used. Siding attached with such a system to the walls, the wind is not terrible, moving at a speed of up to 240 and even 250 m / s.
  • Such designs are quite cheap. The price of one square meter of production “I am Facade”, if you look at the average price level in stores, less than one and a half – two times than the price of traditional siding, and taking into account the installation will cost two or even three times cheaper than cladding a stone ( No matter, natural or artificial).
