refined details

The quality of built objects is often determined by details. Comprehensive finishing of the facade edges can be provided by properly selected finishing profiles (ETICS), and the proper connection of the structural plaster with the window frame by window trims (available in colors matching the standard colors of the windows), such as those available in the Bella Plast brand.

Facades can account for up to 20% of an investment's built-in carbon footprint, 12% of which is generated by the glazing itself!
