Paint or natural

What do you want the building to be pretty or be sustainable for year.

  2. Terra Cotta Roof Tiles.. to.. Concrete painted Roof Tiles.
  3. Anodized aluminum ..to.. Powder coated aluminum

There are issues with all building product but the longevity of the so called modern product is not so good even though quoted now to last longer.

BRICK AND PAINTFace bricks for instance can last for the life of the house where the alternative to render or an applied finish and painting would have a life of say 10 years (maybe), render and painting have other issues that may occur such as irregular and defective application, where brick in general will depend upon the correct flashing and wall ties plus the growth allowance which would be controlled by the the correct placement of Articulated joint.  All of these brick issues can be additional factors in the cement renders and painting finish in any-case.  Cement rendering and painting the residence will not necessarily stop moisture entering rather may attract CONDENSATION IN BUILDINGS, to be discussed is further items.

The modern not necessarily the best or the cheapest in the long term.
