The main advantage of a plaster facade is that it is cheaper. Plaster facades come in a wide variety of colors and textures. But more attention should be paid not just to the beauty but to quality of the job while installing a facade, because plaster is very sensitive to environmental conditions so additional means to ensure quality should be taken. You cannot install it in winter. Moreover, plaster is quite a lightweight material.

The negative aspect of using plaster is that it becomes more expensive when the facade is bigger. Moreover, plaster is not particularly long lasting. It might need to be repaired and recolored every few years. Also, plaster is not resistant to graffiti, it is very absorbent. Finally, plaster is not resistant to mechanical infractions.

A ventilated facade is recommended for larger facades because additional deformation seams are not needed. Secondly, a ventilated facade improves building noise isolation. It is more a ecological facade because only natural materials are used for installation. A ventilated facade must be correctly installed but it is easier to fix mistakes later, while with plaster it is impossible to fix anything. Since a ventilated facade is not environmentally sensitive, it can be installed even in winter. There is a wide variety of materials for ventilated facades: boards, plans, slates, also there are a lot of colors and textures, so everyone can find the option they wish. Finally, a ventilated facade is not sensitive to mechanical infractions. Ventilated facade materials, produced by Eternit Baltic, are fireproof (A2 fire class).
