Aging process

Due to the special structure and color of the rammed earth, erosion and partial damage will not become very obvious and critical. A minimal erosion process is given in every case and will be technically and artistically accounted for. Earthen walls ideally undergo a natural aging process, especially because of the UV resistance of the earth pigments. Because of its dryness and the hygroscopic activity of the silt material, microorganisms and fungus cannot develop. The facades show in the course of decades hardly any color changes, the color intensity even becomes stronger as time passes on. With a technical flawless building process of edges and surfaces, maintenance should not be needed for decades. Even if erosion intensifies, the rammed earth walls can be retouched with the same raw material, so that the repair is hardly to be seen.
