When during repairs, it is the turn of facade insulation, it is inevitable that it becomes necessary to select a material suitable for this purpose. A modern construction market is able to offer a variety of options and it can be difficult to decide. However, it is worth knowing that there is a material that is suitable in most cases. This material is foam. It has good performance and is quite simple to install. Nevertheless, the question of how to properly conduct the facade thermal insulation with foam plastic does not require a separate consideration. This will be discussed further.
It should be noted that the essence of thermal insulation is to protect the room from free air circulation. As a result of the work done, the cold will not penetrate inside the room, and the heat, on the contrary, will linger inside. Polyfoam, due to its structure, is just perfect for this purpose. It has the following properties:
Polyfoam is widely used for insulation
In addition, the material is quite common and relatively cheap , easy to install, making it affordable for a wide range of consumers. The listed qualities are characteristic for the material in question and make it possible to speak of it as a very acceptable option for most cases.
In order to fully understand how to warm the facade of the house with foam plastic, it is important to know that it is best to divide the work into several separate stages and carry out them alternately. This approach will allow not to miss important moments and to carry out all the work at the proper level.
Removing old paint before weatheating
Start, as always, better with training. Here we have in mind not only the purchase of the required amount of material and tools, but also the preparation of the surface of the walls of the facade for installation. The fact is that insulation of foam plastic requires compliance with a set of mandatory rules, one of which is the maximum flatness of the surface. If there are any bulges on the walls, such as slurry of mortar or protruding fasteners, they must be removed without fail. If there are defects of the surface of the reverse nature, that is, cracks or dents, then they must be puttied without fail. It is also important that the surfaces intended for the installation of insulation should be treated with a primer for better adhesion of the adhesive solution used during installation.
When all the preparatory steps have been completed, you can begin to install the insulation. It is best to carry out the work as follows:
In the manner described above, the entire surface area of the walls is trimmed. As can be seen from the above material, wall insulation with foam plates is of particular complexity. To cope with the work is quite possible on their own.
