In connection with the development of technical progress in the field of construction, the range of materials for the roof expands every year on the market. They are characterized by durability, strength, and most importantly - ease of installation and environmental friendliness. Among the large selection of materials is to highlight keramoplast, which has not only good performance properties, but also looks beautiful. Installation of ceramoplast with your own hands can be done even by a non-specialist.
Keramoplast did not appear on the market so long ago, but already very popular due to its characteristics.
Specialists use natural components of natural origin and synthetic substances in the process of material production. The correct combination of components allows you to produce environmentally friendly material, which compares favorably to other types of roofing. During operation, it does not adversely affect people's health and retains its qualities for a long time.
You can choose roofing materials by color
If you wish, you can choose the color of the material, which corresponds to individual preferences and is combined with the general mood of the house. If there is a desire to stand out, to make the roof unique and original, you can decorate it with a pattern or ornament, which will be beneficial to emphasize the taste of the owners.
If you prefer ceramoplast, you need not worry about wind and snow load on the roof, as its natural minerals ensure the strength of the structure, regardless of the cataclysms. Due to the low weight of the material, the pressure on the structure and foundation is reduced.
The material has excellent resistance to ultraviolet rays.
Following the step by step instructions, it is easy to install the ceramoplast. You can do this work without much effort.
Installation of the roof
Vapor barrier and roof sheathing
Large roof area
The zigzag method involves laying sheets in the second row with an offset of 1/2 sheet. Because the joint on one row is located in the middle of the sheet next row. If you prefer this method, you do not have to cut the sheets.
Fastening of keramoplast
During the installation of ceramoplast initial fasteners perform with the help of two mounting screws. Fastening is carried out in the center of the batten board. The guideline is a thread stretched across the crate, along which it will be much easier to fasten parts. The work is performed with notched nails. It is necessary to fasten the first sheet using fastening details in the amount of 30 pieces. For fixing the following sheets 20 fasteners are required.
To prevent sheet deformation during temperature fluctuations, on the crest of the wave, in place of the fastener, you can make a hole whose diameter is slightly larger than the diameter of the fastener.
Fixing the ridge
Having finished laying the material, you can proceed to the installation of the ridge, which is attached to the joint area two slopes of the roof. The peculiarity of the fastening is that the first row of ceramoplast fasteners must be closed with a skate wing. Fastening carry twelve nails.
If you need to change the angle of the ridge area of the roof, you can warm it with the help of a building dryer from the inside of the structure. An alternative to a hair dryer can be a blowtorch. Warming up is carried out to a temperature of 50ºC, which will allow the sheet to bend to the desired angle.
To completely seal the roof (to prevent precipitation and dirt from falling under the roof), wind strips are fastened from the end.
