Warming of the roof of a wooden house

Additional insulation of wooden houses

Wooden houses themselves are warm enough, but sometimes their additional thermal protection is required. Under the influence of the temperature difference, atmospheric precipitation, wood is unusable, not only the appearance, but also the ability to store heat worsen. Recently, even new wooden houses have been trying to insulate and clad. Such a house will last better and longer, and significant savings in the house will also be achieved.

Experts come to the conclusion that it is better to warm the house all the same outside. When warming from the inside, there are a number of disadvantages.

In the area of ​​negative temperatures, not only the walls are, but also part of the insulation. This can lead to a deterioration in the properties of the heat -insulating material, as well as to the formation of condensate in the area of ​​its fit to the wall.

There is no possibility of insulation in the area of ​​the wall and overlap, which allows the presence of “cold bridges” and leads to heat losses.

Carrying out insulation work

Insulation outside is devoid of these shortcomings. The region of negative temperatures is located in the area of ​​the insulation and does not apply to the walls, which does not create conditions for the accumulation of moisture. Proper cladding will protect the thermal insulation layer from atmospheric influences and will become a guarantee of good heat -shielding qualities of the walls.

A wooden house can be lined with various materials. If necessary, the presence of an additional basement differs two main methods. The first does not require installation of the frame, since its role is played by the facing material itself. These are bricks, stone, various types of building blocks. The house receives an additional external wall, which with the help of connections is attached to the inner wooden wall. There is a heater between them. This type, of course, requires the presence of a basement.

In the second method, the frame is required. In this case, brackets, a metal profile or a wooden beam treated with an antiseptic are attached to the wooden wall. The cladding is installed on this frame. In the role of facing material, tiles (cement -fiber, granite, marble), siding, profile sheets are.

A prerequisite for any type of cladding is the presence of ventilation holes, decrees, as well as the presence of an air gap between the heat -insulating and facing material. If all conditions are met, then the wooden house will first be worn like a fur coat, and then a waterproof cover. On the heat of security and durability of such a house, comments are unnecessary.
