Technological conditions: waterproofing and ventilation

tree like no other building material is subject to rot, so sealing arrangement in a wooden house has a special role.For these purposes, you can use obmazochnye or rolled materials.Experts strongly recommend first preferable because it does not have sharp, specific odor and do not require pre-treatment.

the waterproofing works start from the floor of the room. better suited for this concrete screed, but if you can not do it, you can lay a foundation floor cement particle board or board ATSEID.Further applied two coats of waterproofing material on top of them is laid a floor covering.As a floor covering suitable ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles, vlagostoysky laminate, linoleum.However, the first two options - the most reliable.For laying tiles, always use good quality glue.

next step - waterproofing the walls of the bathroom. As with the floor in order to best effect, you would require twice as much material - turned to a two-layer coating.Waterproofing is attached to the walls or staple gun is welded using special equipment.Make sure that the joints of the lower layer of waterproofing sheets overlap upper layer.For the walls are commonly used tile or plastic panels.

Ventilation in the wooden house is absolutely necessary, otherwise it will be to live in is not comfortable. In the absence of ventilation in the house will begin to accumulate condensate zavedutsya nasty insects and excess moisture will lead to a gradual prognivaniyu all wooden structures.The first thing to take care of the passive ventilation, which is a system of channels and the ducts through which the air is moving.If the wooden building does not provide a bathroom, then this is enough.

rooms with high humidity, which include bathroom require a mechanical arrangement, that is, forced ventilation. To do this you need to buy a fan to regulate the speed of movement and the level of humidity.The normal ventilation in the bathroom in a wooden house should be approximately 110 cubic meters per hour - it is to such power devices need to be guided in the selection of the ventilation system.

There are two ways of drainage arrangement in the wooden house:

  • The place of location of the future bathroom in the ground digged roomy metal tank.At the bottom of it spread large stones and walls are treated with the help of a chisel.Then attach to the tank tube through which water will be discharged.
