Abstract

Three different types of hollow-brick walls provided with different exterior lime-based renders containing ceramic powder are investigated in the paper. The influence of the differences in the material composition of building envelope on the service life of exterior renders is analysed. Conclusions on the most advantageous material composition with respect to the service life of exterior renders are drawn.
