In the wooden house the most vulnerable cold place - the attic.
To feel comfortable in it all year round, it should be warm.
This is fairly easy even for those who never engaged in such work.
Well, if in the country built a house with an attic. This room provides additional space and a full-fledged second or third floor. But often in the attic in the fall, and even more so in winter it is cold. If summer visitor arrives at his hacienda at this time of the year or year-round living in the home, it is necessary to insulate the attic.
If the ladder is visible to the lower floor attic, then you need to build a door on its hinges, which will open inside. If not, then it penetrates into the hole most of the cold.
To top it was warm in the winter and not hot in summer, it is necessary to insulate:
Thermal insulation of roofs
Before you choose the type of insulation you needlift his head up, being indoors, and see if the roof lining chipped or visible frame made of planks. In the latter case, in addition to cross-lathing of boards, shall be visible longitudinal beams - the base of the roof.
Insulation will be laid between them. If the ceiling chipped clapboard or other finishing material, the insulation is laid directly on it, but first of timber 50x50 mm frame construct. Squares nailed lengthwise, parallel to each other. The distance between them is equal to the width of the insulation cloth.
Well established lists of mineralwool. Therefore, many use them. First, you need to put a waterproof film that will not allow moisture to penetrate into the room, and secure it with the help of tackers. Not all of it is, then the material can be fixed by means of double-sided tape.
From above stack layers of mineral wool,fixing its special fasteners for her. In mineral wool lay another layer of waterproofing, fixing it. Now you can obbivat clapboard structure or use a different type of finish.
The result was a multi-layered "sandwich", which does not give the cold and moisture to get inside. That's how you can insulate the ceiling of the attic.
Do windproof walls and floor
As for the walls, then there are two options -external or internal insulation. The interior is done in the same way as described above. Outside transform visible from the street side of the wall. Now many people use for this siding.
If the home owner is not afraid of heights, has an assistant and right hand rising, it may obbit wall siding. You can select an internal or exterior insulation, or a combination of both.
The floors in the attic insulated infrequently, because the presence ofthe ground floor does not give them too cool. You can fill the logs, warm, as well as the ceiling, and on top of nail batten. You can simply top of the old flooring to lay linoleum, carpet, and comfortable warmth reigns in the attic and in the presence of the furnace there will be live all year round.
