Finishing an attic lining - a way to elevate the under-roof space

little about

Lining material can be used both in dry and wet locations.Wide range of colors of the material and the variety of textures and sizes can make an attic in any style.You can also choose glossy or matte finish.In addition, if there is a need to create an exclusive design, any pattern can be made on the bunk, which embody the idea into a reality host.All images are protected by a layer of varnish, which makes them resistant to abrasion and fading.

Basically, issued panel 10 millimeters in thickness and width can be 5 to 30 centimeters.The length also has different dimensions from 2 to 6 meters, which allows the selection of materials so as to remain at a minimum waste work.Mount the panel can be vertically, horizontally and diagonally.Connect them in two ways: on the "foreign" or your own tongue.

Note!The tongue may have different sizes and different color from the panel, so in the selection of lining it is necessary to pay attention.

Finish attic paneling - assembly process

Mounting panels for attic is carried out on wooden or steel crate.If the lining is vertical styling, the crate is attached horizontally and vice versa.It must be remembered that the layer of insulation between the attic and the crate should be a gap for ventilation, which is necessary to prevent accumulation of moisture.Step crates of at least 30 centimeters.

Installation begins with the installation of angular profiles to help match the surrounding surface.To fix the sheets on a wooden crate used staples and nails, and for steel frame - self-tapping screws.Distance attachment points should be made based on the size of the lining, but often occurs in each fixing location of intersection with the panel frame.

In the case of mounting panels on horizontal work starts at the top, with the panel mounted groove bottom.This mounting system is very important, because it makes sure that all the accumulated moisture will flow down. Important!The panels on each side should be cut off by 5 millimeters to the expansion of the material was a place to turn.All gaps are closed finishing profiles.

Molded protection gable

also often used for lining the gable cladding.Pediment - a "face" of the house, so he looks, in many respects, will give the impression about the building.The shape of the pediment is directly dependent on the type of roof.For example, if the roof gable, the gable will be in the form of a triangle.Sheathing gable clapboard is not only a decorative function, but also protective.This element serves as a roof to protect the roof from moisture penetration, and therefore he himself must be reliably protected.

Note!In the pediment it is recommended to make a window that will not only have ornamental value, but also give an opportunity to ventilate the attic .Often used for gable same material as the wall.However, it should be understood that the selected material must meet the following standards:

  • be resistant to moisture;
  • Wrap temperature changes;
  • not fade from sunlight;
  • have sufficient strength.

All these requirements are mandatory, as cladding material will be on the street and must withstand all weather influences.Molded perfectly located for all of the above criteria.Installing it is carried out on the same technology as the clapboard siding attic.In the crate and most gable wall for greater reliability, you can put a layer of waterproofing, which will give added protection against moisture of the whole structure.
