She has everything a real

Good in all subjects

One face plate, it is a brick (or other clay material) which was cut with a power saw to make it more than two centimeters thick. Thus, it can be used to cover a wall without losing as much surface as using the whole brick. In the end, masonry features are exactly the same. It arises as a tile with a specific mortar. Outside, we more readily use a terracotta cladding plate, concrete, slate or reconstituted stone. The decorative effects are very numerous, the existing face plate in any color, with varying shades. As it is made of natural elements, live, it is subject to variations in color, variations which can also originate from cooking. We recommend also to mix the platelets before starting to glue, so as to obtain a homogeneous set of varied shades. There are various sizes of plates, most the size of a brick (6.5 cm or 9 cm), and others are much thinner (4 cm or 5 cm high). They are more or less smooth depending on the level of "rustic" that you want to give your wall. You will help to accentuate the desired effects through the joints (by changing color and thickness) you lisserez finger or iron joints.

We put the where?

She is everywhere !

Inside, it is not uncommon to see the face plate on "the back wall," one who is blind (without openings) in the living room, one facing the entrance. It gives a warmth to the long winter evenings. Moreover, issue heat, the facing plate is particularly welcome to cover a fireplace. Due to its small thickness, it can be used to form a frieze on the walls of too refined room or ask in the kitchen between the worktop and cupboards in height. We also love inside niches formed in the walls. Can be played on the thicknesses putting more or less adhesive, so as to bring out some platelets compared to others.

Outside, it is around the barbecue we find it, but also in areas without private verandas and pergolas. She also decorates often around windows and doors; with its only two centimeters thick, it is generally no need to use special adaptations. It visually preserves a rule, details of frames it surrounds and highlights. It can cover an entire façade that laying horizontally or vertically.

Warning: outside, it will be necessary to keep your pads, use a glue that is frost resistant and water repellent seals.

Question budget

True imitation?

Of the facing plate, is found in all hardware stores and sales materials: Castorama, Point.P, Bricoman, Leroy Merlin, Mr. Bricolage, etc. Prices vary depending on the finish, as the material forming the facing plate. Of course, imitation is cheaper than true. And it will be cheaper to buy the same size chips than opting for a set composed of several formats. For example, a batch of mixed size wafer base concrete, anthracite, to be used indoors and outdoors and heat resistant costs about 37 EUR / square meter. A wafer imitation stone siding will cost under $ 20 / square meter. There are adhesive imitation stone plates (without glue or joint) for 35 euros / square meter. To glue, count 0.50 / kg and 2.50 euros per kilo joint.
