AREAS OF EXPOSURE IN WOODEN FACADES
Depending on the location and orientation of a building, its facade surfaces are subjected to different levels of exposure, which can alter its appearance.
In addition to weather conditions, geographical location, altitude, and local factors such as slope orientation and close by trees also contribute to the level of exposure. These varying weathering effects on different sides of the building can lead to non-uniform discoloration. Unprotected wood rapidly changes its color and structure under the influence of weather. The natural hue transforms into a silvery tone, and over time, the once homogeneous surface becomes more mottled before the facade, depending on the exposure, turns uniformly gray. As this process depends on the intensity of exposure, discoloration may be delayed in protected areas such as canopies, reveals, or window sills. Often, this accentuating effect is explicitly desired. However, it can be significantly reduced through the treatment of wood with stain or oil, if desired. For such a coating to provide lasting protection, the facade must be regularly inspected and maintained. Just like with all building materials, this should also be done from time to time with untreated facades to ensure long-term quality of living
