CHARACTERISTICS OF MARBLE
Marble facades offer a number of highly attractive advantages for buildings on both a technical and an aesthetic level, regardless of whether the building is public or private.
o begin with, marble is one of the toughest natural materials for use in outdoor spaces due to its outstanding technical characteristics
Exterior walls need strong materials capable of withstanding tough weather conditions without being damaged over time and marble is perfect in that regard for house facades.
Its strength is another advantageous characteristic when used for outdoor marble facades as it means that the surface becomes extremely impact-resistant. However, the porosity of marble means that certain products should be applied to protect the stone and prevent it from absorbing moisture.
Marble is also an excellent thermal insulator that can help to save energy when used on facades. Furthermore, because it is a metamorphic rock, it is very resistant to high temperatures and is rarely ruined by constant exposure to sunlight.
Marble brings exclusivity and elegance to the design of building facades due to its unique nature. Marble facades undoubtedly provide a natural look full of personality, two values that are always becoming more popular in the design of interior spaces.
This material can also be processed easily, enabling different finishes, formats and compositions of enormous decorative value to be created.
Nonetheless, certain types of marble for facades have become more popular than others at present in the world of design:

White marble provides a timeless, serene and very bright solution for facades. Where once it was a common trend in certain specific parts of the world, it has since gained global popularity. The fact is a white marble facade conveys a sense of enormous purity and brilliance that is hard to resist.
Using a marble ventilated facade system provides enormous advantages to any building, especially in terms of energy-saving. A ventilated facade creates an air chamber between the building itself and the outside because it is not directly secured to the surface.
This enables better ventilation and temperature control because the heat from the sun does not directly impact the building but rather the natural stone, preventing the accumulation of heat on the facade and boosting thermal stability.
