Ways to insulate the roof of the bath independentlyJanuary 30, 2018
Both humidity and temperature in the bath directly depend on timely and high-quality insulation, so it is worth taking this process very seriously. The main stages in roof insulation are high-quality insulation of ramps and ceiling of the steam room. Provided that there is a cold attic in the bathhouse, the roof slopes do not need additional insulation. With the help of windows, attic ventilation is created, and brooms are stored and dried directly in the attic.
In the event that our bath has an attic floor, then the roof and the ceiling also need warming. Thanks to this procedure, the attic floor can be turned into a real recreation area. But here it is impossible to allow strong humidity, therefore it is necessary to pay attention to a good vapor barrier of all floors.
Available options for insulation and materials
It is possible to warm a ceiling of a country bath in two ways, it:
When choosing a flooring method, you will need ceiling boards that are laid on the uppermost crown of the log cabins. When choosing a hemming method, they are fixed to the ceiling beams below.
For reliable roof insulation, you can also take natural environmentally friendly materials, such as clay in a wrap with straw and (or) sand. Mineral wool is also good. An important role is played by the ceiling vapor barrier. It must be performed from the steam room, using metallic films.
Stages of flooring insulation
Lay thick enough boards across this room steam room. For the best result, the last but one crown is cut for the entire thickness of the board. Then treated with an antiseptic solution of the log and put the board in dense rows, avoiding gaps.
On the inside of the board, they are also soaked with an antiseptic solution and dried well. Then they must be sheathed with a vapor barrier film with a conventional furniture stapler.
Upstairs, our boards are covered with vapor-permeable insulation. This is necessary in order to remove the pairs from the boards, otherwise they will simply rot.On top of the clay, mixed with expanded clay. The thickness of this layer is at least 20 cm.
Stages of hemming
Make a rough ceiling of 25 mm boards, reinforcing the bottom of the beams with self-tapping screws. Stapler sheathe the ceiling on the side of the steam room metallized film, the joints of which are glued with layers of adhesive tape. Then a finishing ceiling is built from the clapboard, meanwhile the clapboard is fixed on the bars on top of the vapor barrier.
Then insulating layers of 10-15 cm are laid between all the beams very tightly, without gaps. With this method, the clay is not used, otherwise the boards can simply be sold.
On top of the mats are laid waterproofing film. If there are inaccurate joints, then with adhesive tape.
