Warming of the attic is an especially important process.
After all through the attic rooms there is the greatest loss of heat throughout the house.
As you know, warmer air rises above what is heated less.
Therefore, well insulated attic room, you can achieve better preservation of heat throughout the house.
You will need
- Thermal insulation plates, a knife, a vapor barrier film, a stapler, an adhesive tape, wooden bars, screws, nails, a hammer.
To begin, buy all the necessary materials,So that the process of attic insulation goes without stopping. Then, open the plastic bag and unpack the insulation boards. Cut them according to the required dimensions. The width of the slab should be slightly more than the distance between the axes of the rafters.
Begin installing the plates between the axes of the rafters. It is necessary that the stove should stand slightly in front of it. It is sufficiently elastic, so if the slab is cut correctly, it will stand tight enough. To conduct installation of heat-insulating panels it is necessary from below upwards. When one layer is laid, it is best to put the second one. It must be installed in such a way that the seams between the slabs of the first layer are closed with whole plates of the second layer.
After the installation is finished,Check if there are any slots. After all, if you leave them, it can lead to the freezing of the attic. If there are cracks, it is necessary to cut out the necessary parts from the remaining heat-insulating slabs and close the slots.
Now you need to mount the vapor barrier. It is necessary to cut out pieces of film of the right size and attach them to the rafters with a stapler. To impose a vapor barrier it is necessary with an overlap of 10 cm. Pieces should be glued together with adhesive tape. It is best to use foamed vapor barrier films for vapor barrier insulation. They do not just skip steam from inside the room, but also reflect the flow of radiant heat back to the attic.
After finishing the plastering of the mansard vapor barrierFilm, it is necessary to fix the heat-insulating layer. To do this, horizontal logs should be nailed to the logs. The step should be 50 cm. The bars strengthen the thermal insulation layer even more tightly, and also help create an air gap between the vapor barrier and the inner skin. This is necessary to remove moisture from the surface of the film. After the bars have been installed, any selected skin can be attached to them. Your attic will be warm and beautiful.
