most common terrace as separately attached premises without glazing.Place them on the foundation of the house there is no way, when the latter has long since built so the owners to erect an extension of columnar supporting pillars (if the foundation of the house is high), or just on a gravel pad (when the foundation is placed low).Use this form to the square meters in the winter time it is impossible.Spending is substantial funds for the resettlement of non-residential premises seems unreasonable.Consider how warm veranda efficiently and cost-effectively.

outdoor terrace warm does not make sense, so either you need to spend money on its glazing, or in general to leave this venture.It is not necessary (especially if it is carried out at their summer cottage) to insta

ll plastic windows.In this case, you can safely do conventional panes that you can install yourself, securing them with wooden slats.

greatest heat loss is carried out through the windows and walls.Less of it goes through the floor and the ceiling, but only in the case where the extension is not located directly on the ground.In the absence of heat is lost through the basement floor almost at the same level and through the walls.

process of insulation of windows, floor and ceiling, in contrast to the walls, held indoors.Assemble the materials on the walls inside the building is not beneficial for several reasons.Firstly, a heater inside the stacking leads to the fact that the walls in wintertime still freeze, and the material itself is not able to reflect the full cold.Secondly, the dew point is shifted into the room, so there is a great risk that the material will gain moisture, because of what later will be a fungus and mold.Third, carry out these works outside of a lot easier than inside (although they can be suspended because of weather conditions).

So, the progress of work should be as follows:

  1. glazing premises;
  2. wall insulation from the outside;
  3. processing windows;
  4. floor insulation (if necessary);
  5. ceiling insulation (optional).

little effort and your veranda will warm

Work will begin with a thorough treatment of all surfaces.It is necessary to eliminate all cracks using a silicone sealant or a simple tow and remove all items that are poorly kept or interfere with (old shriveled paint and shutters, for example).

Choosing the material should be based on several criteria: cost, durability, heat transfer rate, resistance to adverse conditions.At the moment, almost all of these criteria is responsible mineral wool, the only thing that can be confusing - the cost.That's about it further warming will be discussed.

after surface preparation to begin the assembly of the first horizontal frame in the niche which will be laid insulation.For its production should buy wooden slats (5x5 cm), which should be treated pre-protective agents (this will extend the service life).Attach they should be across the wall, the distance from one rail to the other - the width of the mineral wool boards with a deduction of two centimeters.The reduction is done intentionally, namely to provide tight fixing web, otherwise it will slide.

use metal profiles will increase the service life of the frame several times.But to work with him a little bit harder.The photo also shows the additional fastening material with special elements.They do not need the device at the correct frame, or when using rigid insulation boards

filled cells on top of the first frame is stretched membrane film.It will protect the material from getting wet in the rain, as well as small cracks on the walls blowing.Attach it can be with a conventional staple gun.

top of the first film frame is mounted secure the second, but only the vertical.It is on these rails are mounted on top of the elements of cladding (siding).

processing windows ↑

windows do not need additional protection, and the usual windows - yes.Treating them is necessary not only the joints of frames, but the very fabric (especially if you are on the street protects only single glass, not a double).

first to seal themselves glass with a special energy-saving films.For its installation will require double-sided tape and a conventional hair dryer.At the top of a long strip of fabric glue tape, remove the protective paper and stick it to the edge of the film.Slowly presses the surface of the film to the glass and direct the hot air at its surface.Hot jet will ensure a snug fit.At the bottom edge of the anchoring of the film with the help of the same tape.

insulation windows
With film, you can protect the entire window as a whole, but it will take to pull it from one slope to another.If the width is not enough, the individual lengths overlap overlap (15 cm).

frame joints are sealed with a special solution.We take a certain amount of chalk and twice plaster.Slowly add the water and knead the mixture until the consistency of thick cream.With spatula apply the mixture to the joints of the frames.We expect about ten minutes, until the mixture is a little dry up.Then, turn off any cloth roll, moistened with water and tested it on a wet putty roller, thus leveling it.When spring comes, just open the shutters, dried pieces of the mixture just disappear on their own, without damaging the integrity of the cover frame.

can insulate windows and with a rubber seal, but the work in this case is more complicated.You will need a thorough fixing of the gasket and fit hinges for shutters tightly closed.

floor insulation ↑

should be noted that following the jobs data reduced the ceiling height of about 15-20 cm. You should start with the complete removal of old flooring.If you intend to re-laying of flooring or linoleum removed, the handle must be dismantled components carefully.If the coating consists of a plurality of segments, they should be numbered label or some other manner of placing the order.

If the floor with irregularities, they should be correct and make a new pre-tie.After that, in the area skirting the perimeter of the entire room stacked without additional fixation tape insulation 2 cm thick (cut them out of the mineral wool slabs).Then along the premises stacked wooden logs, the thickness must be equal to the thickness of the insulation boards.Fixing is carried out with screws, spacing between the joists to the width of the plates.Then fit the plate heater.

floor insulation
To avoid moisture absorption material can be put under a film (it is mounted on top of the lag)

top of this stacked structure Chipboard plates, they should be placed offset relative to each other.The result was that the middle of the web from the first series of falls on the junction of two sheets of a second.You can then laid new flooring or return to the place of the old.

Insulation of the ceiling made all on the same principle: the frame assembly, the filling of insulating material and sheathing.The work volume, but not complicated in execution, so handle them yourself quite easily, even without the involvement of assistants.
