The biological damage includes different forms of degradation of building materials, which are caused by organisms. The paper deals with microorganisms from a group of fungi, algae and cyanobacteria. These microorganisms extensively degrade the aesthetic function of building facades with external thermal insulation composite system (ETICS).
