Wall insulation loggia - materials and stages of

Insulationworks loggia start with its glazing.Because we need to ensure not only protection from dust and precipitation, but also to create a reliable barrier leakage of heat, dwell on PVC windows with 3-chamber windows.After glazing to be the main task - wall insulation loggia.

most reliable and popular today insulation material is polystyrene.Lightweight, treatable, chemically aggressive and resistant to moisture, it is at a very low coefficient of thermal conductivity is equally well suited for insulation of walls and ceiling and floor loggia.We need sheets of 5 cm thick.

In addition, take care of the acquisition penofol 1 cm thick. This insulation made of polyethylene foam and aluminum foil.The technology involves the use of its combined use with polystyrene foam.Available material in roll form.

Warming of the floor on the balcony, and further work

Works will start with the release of the walls and floor of the old coating, and then proceed directly to the insulation.For fixing styrofoam walls loggia drill holes for dowels.Nailed sheets should be on the perimeter and in the center.

Installation conduct butt, avoiding overlaps.All joints sizing aluminum tape, remembering that the thoroughness of this operation, the ability to lodge resist heat loss depends on many things.

Finally, find out how to make insulation floor balconies with their hands.To begin with crate of produce harvested timber, the space between the insulation sheets which are stacked, and the top Shots waterproof plywood.
