Three reliable method of embedding inter-panel joints with their own hands

Poor embedded joints between the panels are fraught with not only the inconvenience of today, but also a lot of trouble in the future.If today it is manifested by increased noise from the street, lowering the temperature in the room, increasing humidity, which leads to the appearance of mold, mildew and damage to wallpaper, then after some time will have visible defects of the walls.After all, poor insulation of joints leads to the gradual destruction of the wall panels in these areas.As their quality close up on their own, and we will tell.This material will be interesting for those living in brick houses, as the ceilings are made of the same panels.

methods termination inter-panel joints

Let us examine jointing the inner side of the building, as they are particularly concerned about the residents.This habitat of various insects associated with smells, and wetting of wall coverings.In practice, several methods.

  1. If the seam is not "empty", it is possible to try to impose a new layer on top of the sealing material.The case goes all - cement, gypsum, plaster, sealants.Selecting extensive.However, it should determine the condition of the old seal, whether it should be replaced completely?Otherwise you'll often do repairs at that location.If defects only in certain places, the "work" is necessary only with them, provided that in general a normal seam
  2. With larger seam (both width and length) better to use special materials.Widespread insulation tube type, which is made on the basis of polyurethane.These tubes are sold with different diameters, so it will be easy to pick up for a particular joint.Note that the diameter of the material should be larger than the joint width.It is elastic, and when you pushed into the seam, the tube begins to expand.This will ensure reliable installation of the seal.The tube should be slightly to drown in the seam, about 2 - 3 mm, since the top around the seam will need to apply a layer of sealant or mastic.Thereafter, the joint surfaces carefully aligned.
  3. well to seal the joints using foam.This material fills all the voids, which ensures perfect sealing of the premises.Foam is durable, can withstand large temperature fluctuations.However, this material is quite expensive, so the large joints better to seal the second described method.

If you have time and money you can do a combination of the 2nd and 3rd methods.First, a bit of foam, and then directly to her (not yet withered) - polyurethane foam.This "design" is more reliable and durable.
