The subtleties of the process of finishing the facade house with sip-panels

SIP-panel house lining technology (SIP) is particularly common in the USA and Northern Europe. The main advantages of buildings built using this finishing material are minimum of maintenance of maintenance and significant savings on heating due to the excellent thermal insulation properties of the facade panels.

Advantages and disadvantages

The sip-panel consists of two sheets, between which the heat insulation material is. At the heart of such a material – an oriented chipboard (OSP) on the outer parties, which is made of glued wood chips, as well as a layer of insulation inside. As a rule, he acts as such a polystyrene foam.

Of the advantages of sip panels, we note:

  • strength;
  • durability;
  • good thermal insulation properties;
  • good sound insulation properties (they are only enhanced if the finishing material is fixed at a short distance from the sip panels, thereby creating an air layer);
  • ease of installation and reducing repair time;

  • a small weight of the design that does not require a strong foundation;
  • convenience of transportation without the use of special equipment;
  • protection against the appearance of mold;
  • The insulation does not seek over time;
  • The plate as part of the panels is not deformed and does not breed over time;
  • The insulation in the sip-panels is warmer and efficient than mineral wool, because according to the calculations of the specialists of the polystyrene layer in 150 mm with ease will replace the mineral wool layer in 200 mm.

Disadvantage – the material is afraid of water, that is, it is capable of absorbing moisture, So, it is worth taking care of the additional waterproofing of such panels inside and outside. It is because of the sensitivity to the external atmospheric impacts of the house with a sip-panels must have additional external finish to extend the life of the dwelling. And the material is very sensitive to the effects of sunlight, from which it darkens with time.

Exterior finish

The final finish will not only give the house from the Sip panels a finished look, but also reliably protects from all sorts of precipitation and other external influences.

A rock

Natural or artificial stone is suitable for finishing the base, exterior angles and inserts, since this finishing material is particularly durable and durable. Due to the high cost of the stone, as a rule, a few dare to finish them all at home.

The only lack of stone is a big weight, therefore a significant burden of the foundation of the structure is created. In this case, the finished foundation will have to strengthen, and if you build a house “from scratch” – we think in advance the particularly durable framework.

Please note that if you use limestone as an finishing finish, it must be processed by special moisture protection compositions. Houses with a stone finish look monumentally and solid, moreover, you will not even need to make a cosmetic repair of the facade for a long time – and all due to durability and durability of this finishing material.

Block house

The use of such a material as a block house, is a great option for cottage in country style and ordinary Russian cottages. In appearance, such a house resembles a log cabin of a rounded log. Main advantages of wood – Safety for human health and environmental friendliness. Since wooden blocks need minimal processing, finishing is made as soon as possible. In this case, the additional warming of the wooden structure will not be required thanks to the excellent heat-saving wood properties.

System of fasteners of spike-grooves will further reduce the term of the house of the house with this finishing material. The base is a metal income, under which the vapor barrier material and moisture protection membrane fix. The final stage of finishing works is their painting and processing with special protective means from aggressive external influences.

The classic size of a block house used for finishing houses is 200-600 cm (length), 9-16 cm (width) and 2-3.6 cm (thickness).

Ventilated facade

Innovative finish in the form of a ventilated facade has a steel or aluminum framework to which cladding materials are attached. Inside such panels there are capsules, so that they pass the air, and the moisture does not accumulate inside. Such an effect resembles a thermos when in winter indoors, trimmed with ventilated panels, warmer, and in the summer – colder. In addition, such a house has additional sound insulation, and the microclimate is supported at the ideal level.

The positive parties of the ventilated facades include high speed of their installation, Easy replacement of damaged elements and a rich assortment of textures and colors. You can finish with such panels without any problems at any time of the year.


When applying outdoor plaster You do not have to align the walls covered with sip-panels.

The advantages of such a finish are obvious:

  • affordable cost;
  • Beautiful patterns on the facade;
  • Durability of the coating resistant to external influences.

Mineral plaster has the highest strength. It has a low cost and “breathes” due to the effect of vapor permeability. For the same reason, the excess moisture and condensate naturally exit outside, which is very important for susceptible sip-panels susceptible to moisture.

Buyers have a large spectrum of shades of this finishing material, which is a big plus and advantageous difference from other facade coatings.

The technique of plastering is not so complicated, so even non-professionals will be able to cope with finishing work in small preliminary training. In addition, natural plaster is resistant to temperature differences and ultraviolet rays. And if you have financial capabilities, experts recommend using silicate plaster, which are rich in paints of which will allow the facade in any style.


Cyding trim can be wooden, metal or vinyl. It is distinguished by:

  • fire safety;
  • Resistance to negative external influences;
  • environmental friendliness;
  • anti-corrosion properties;
  • affordable cost;

  • Resistance to sunshine rays;
  • simplicity of installation and maintenance;
  • a wide selection of textures and colors;
  • The possibility of working in the cold season.


Clinker tile applies, as a rule, to create brickwork visibility. Such products frost resistant, durable and wear-resistant. At the same time, the texture of the clinker surface can be very diverse: smooth, rough, corrugated or glazed. Installation of this finishing material is performed on a special glue, and the joints are filled with grout. The only drawback is the high cost of tiles and installation work. But if your goal is to make an exclusive modern facade and in finance you are not limited, then clinker tiles – exactly what you need.

Flexible stone

Another innovation in the field of facades – flexible stone. This material is made from acrylic resin and marble crumb, so the plates have plasticity, which is very convenient when installing and working with various surfaces. Plastering walls before facing flexible stone will not need. Fastening of such a material is made on special cement glue. To all, you will not need to handle the place of the joints, since the plates are covered with a special film, and at the end of the installation, the protective layer is simply removed. The main advantage of this finishing material is the possibility of finishing the corners and window slopes.

Sandwich panels

You can also see the facade of the sandwich panels – this option is one of the most common and affordable. Such a “finishing sandwich” will protect the structure and sip panels from adverse external influences. With this form, the insulation is laid between metal or fibric cement plates.

Tips of professionals

To finish the facade of the sip panels served you for a long time, It is necessary to adhere to some recommendations of professionals.

  • The facade of the building is recommended to separate the sip panels in the first six months after the construction.
  • Before finishing, perform accurate calculations of wall thickness. Perhaps you will not need thermal insulation, and it will be enough to perform an exterior decoration by siding or stone masonry.
  • Treat the ventilation and other communication systems in advance, because their timely installation will retain the external cladding of the structure.
  • The modern decoration of the sip-panel houses implies and decorative design of windows and doors, for which manufacturers produce such finishing elements as plastic platbands and slopes that distinguishes simplicity and ease of use without the need for fitting and docking elements with each other.


Thanks to modern building technologies, the frame design of the facade in combination with the cladding of the sip panels allows you to quickly build whole residential neighborhoods. This finishing material not only helps the houses look attractive, but also ensures that there is excellent thermal insulation properties – and all this for quite affordable money. That is why the trimming of the sip-panels can afford both the usual subsidiary – the pensioner and the owner of the luxury cottage.
