Why do we like the metal facade for a house in Barcelona?
Metal is a malleable and affordable material to choose in a variety of colors.
As architects it allows us a great variety of options that combined with a ventilated facade system offers us great benefits.

 

What advantages does it have?

LIGHT
EASY TO INSTALL
FAST TO INSTALL
RAINCOAT
Waterproof and resistant to liquids. With an absorption level close to zero.
EASY TO CLEAN
REUSABLE
Easily removable.
LARGE FORMAT
Normally delivered in pieces of 3m, 6m and up to 12m long and 1m wide with thicknesses from 2mm.
It means facades with greater uniformity and continuity since joints are minimized.
This also facilitates its handling and provides greater aesthetic and hygienic advantages.
FINISHES
Great variety of finishes from smooth and corrugated, to bright or matt, perforated or deformed …
COLOR
Wide range of colors

 

What is the price €/m2 in Barcelona?

Wide variety of prices.
The most affordable facade is the pre-lacquered corrugated steel sheet that you can find from € 20/m2 (price only for material without installation or VAT).
From there there are endless options to reach the folded zinc and copper facades.
Copper in the rough is priced at almost € 8/kg …

 

Our professional recommendation:

In our Architecture studio in Barcelona ERA architects, we recommend choosing a corrugated steel cladding for the ventilated facade of your house in Barcelona to achieve a color effect with great performance at a very OK price.
