Insulation. Professionally, efficiently, durable
The benefits of involving specialists for facade insulation
Today, residents apartments, private homes and cottages often go for services of thermal insulation of facades, and some craftsmen can do this work on their own. But in this niche often require not only residential buildings, but public buildings, office and business, shopping malls and various businesses.
External facade insulation allows you to:
- to achieve a high efficiency of construction and reduce the cost of heating;
- to create the best for of the microclimate inside the building, with the maintenance of a favorable temperature and stable humidity level;
- to protect the external walls from external factors and the influence of weather conditions, from freezing in winter time;
- to provide additional soundproofing.
Most often in modern conditions demanded to isolate heat loss from the external side facades. Unlike internal insulation - this technique out is dew point, and thereby reduces the humidity in structures and significantly reduced risk of disintegration, rot and mildew. This solution can be applied for all types of buildings and a variety of materials of outer walls: brick, concrete or wood, block or frame structures.
Features and main technologies of thermal insulation of facades
Heat retention the front wall involves laying insulation material on the external wall surface and further decorative finishes. Not eaten an internal useful area of the building. Modern materials are light weight, they don't weight the wall.
While this slightly increases the overall thickness of the wall. And a wide choice of decorative finishes enables such even for historical architectural monuments, leaving their usual appearance is unchanged.
Today, there are a few of the most popular and frequently used types of facade insulation:
- the creation of insulation and cladding on the technology of wet facade;
- the creation and installation of ventilated facades;
- installation with the use of thermopanels;
- special painting liquid of superfine insulation.
The latter method is actually rarely used, it was not so long ago developed and poorly tested in practice, however, has its advantages – the ease and simplicity of application, an aesthetic surface that does not require subsequent finishing, and at a reasonable cost.
When creating a wet front as insulation used polystyrene foam, polyethylene foam or mineral wool. The method itself is quite time-consuming, requires surface preparation of walls and installation work is carried out in several stages.
The result is a multilayered outer design, all layers of which are bonded to adhesive compositions, that is why the technology is called wet front. To strengthen the front part, giving greater rigidity and strength of the used reinforcing mesh and metal profile for window and door openings, part of the basement and the outside corners of the facade. For roughing and finishing is often used plasters.
Ventilated facades are fixed to the major walls on a metal frame providing a small gap between the wall and the cladding. As insulation used minerality plate, it is mounted inside the frame close to the front wall. In the end, between the cladding and the insulation is free space across the width of the frame in which there is free circulation of air. Veneer is performed with a metal or plastic panels, granite, siding or fibre cement.
The foam panel is widely used due to the low cost materials and simple installation. Often Thermopanel acquire with a ready facing finish, which also saves time and money of the people.
