In a previous article we wrote about the increasingly popular building their aggregate concrete blocks. Was the technology of manufacturing and aggregate concrete masonry units with their own hands . Now look at how you can use this cheap material as insulation .
Bleak House – a problem many owners. You may actually be the perfect design of the mansion, but if it is not designed for our latitude , it will insulate . In particularly difficult cases such intervention exposed roof . By itself, this design is quite complicated and rarely can be adjusted amateurs . But still – can .
Roof insulation inside – quite a complicated job and take up her advice only in the most extreme cases when all other measures failed, and insulate the house in another way at the present time it is impossible. Consider the same technology that is applicable to this part of the house warming .
Pitched roof insulation inside. Choosing insulation
Must begin with an assessment of the current condition of the roof , as well as the conditions for its operation. The easiest way to insulate a pitched roof, isolated from public access . It applies a large number of modern building thermal insulation materials, since the very overlap no one visits , and therefore warmer will not suffer from such unnatural forms of exploitation . If you have a simple rectangular roof, insulate yourself its not worth it. This construction requires the use of specific materials. And it may be in breach of natural warmth and gidroobmena that will lead to the roof mold. The temperature inside the building is not significantly changed.
If your roof needs repair , will be most reasonable to start with her. In other cases, you can proceed to the selection of insulation and directly works. So one of the most successful solutions is expanded clay . Material , it must be said , quite porous , because the basic characteristics of the roof to heat and waterproofing will not change . Installing this type of insulation also requires owners of pure technical floor – if it is equipped with an attic or any other housing option , such work is not worth spending .
Roof insulation inside with expanded clay
The technology laying expanded clay is quite simple and accessible. The first thing you need to build a crate . To do this, use the wooden beams . You must install design, the thickness corresponding to a heater . Here you will come out of the material parameters , which are using. Unlike frame designs for walls, instead use aluminum profile boards is not recommended – it is a violation of the core technology , though , is quite rough .
The very same concrete block should be placed directly between the bars crates . In order to secure the material , it is desirable to use a special construction adhesive . The entire structure is covered with top boards Chipboard or similar materials . There are alternatives to a heater that can be used for a similar design . You can also insulate the roof with polystyrene foam . It is already possible to do without crates , just putting the sheets in one dense layer . You can also make tie without losing the basic characteristics of the material.
In some cases, concrete block can be further strengthened. Do so only in cases when it is necessary to maintain access to the roof and it does not spoil the insulation . In such cases it is necessary to make a concrete screed . Permissible to use self-leveling mix himself in the concrete block structure acts as a filler. This type of operation significantly reduces its insulating properties . Because it is set and only when there is no alternate embodiment , a heat loss in a house is minimal.
