Ventilated Facades

Ventilated facade systems are the optimal solution for thermal insulation and cladding facades of buildings in our climate zone. Ventilated facades are suitable for both new buildings and renovations for. Ventfasady represent an artificial wall attached to the structure. Ventilated facades, meet modern requirements and needs of many parameters: thermal conductivity, fire resistance, durability, sound insulation, etc. Ventfasady (ventilated facades) in Russia have adopted recently, but however in countries such as Germany and Finland are used for more than 30 years. The most promising technology in finishing are now curtain walls with an air gap (ventilated facades – ventfasady). Aluminum composite panels of this type are used quite extensively.

Ventilated facades are used for reconstruction and construction of residential, industrial, office buildings, public. Aluminum composite panels for construction suitable for energy saving, and a variety of textures and colors of the material will increase architectural level buildings. Ventilated facades with air gap function as follows: the outside of the outer wall of bearing systems mounted supporting frame, hung on a finishing layer (Screen). The gap between the base and the screen should be placed a layer of insulation and air gap (40-80 mm). When assembling structures hinged facade systems are not applied "wet" processes, so you can spend facade work at any time of year. Ventilated facade systems have a high level of service. Ventilated facades are resistant to temperature changes, absorbing thermal deformation that arise in daily and seasonal temperature changes, which lowers the probability of failure facing and cracking of the facade. Also, an advantage of composite panels is placing insulation on the outside, which protects the walls from freezing and periodic thawing.

Maximum Insulation

In this case, temperature difference between the rooms will be 7-26 degrees. At the same time the temperature outside can drop to -28 degrees and the maximum difference of 50 degrees. Why is this important? By increasing the difference temperature on opposite sides of the insulation there is partial pressure, which can "squeeze" the warm air leaks through cracks and insulation. The second important point – the dew point. In contact cold Subject to the warm air condenses on the subject moisture. Thus, if we heat the house from the inside, the walls, roof slope, and other items which have a poor little resistance, these elements will be "zamokat" with time they will develop mold. Actually, the only choice of insulation, our work does not end. Consideration should be given the right technology.

For cotton insulation – is assembling sandwich – gidrobarer, cotton, vapor barrier. Also – the gluing of joints barrier film to prevent the consolidation of wool roll. For sheet insulation – skleivaenie sheets together, the adhesive bonding to the surface warms. Foam heaters can not be applied without special equipment, usually certified dealers should acknowledge the skills of their workers. When the external thermal insulation (fronts), all insulation must be protected from external influences – wall panels, stucco, siding. For insulating walls usually choose: 1.

Outside wall insulation – foam insulation, mineral wool blocks, foam, polystyrene foam, followed by protection panels or plaster 2. Insulation of walls from the inside – eco-friendly foam insulation, mineral wool. Polystyrene, expanded polystyrene insulation for domestic use can not be 3. Warming of the cellar – foam heaters, a sticker sheet insulation, installation of mineral sheets, blocks. Given the not too large temperature gradient can use a waterproofing and "warm" plaster, and various fillings (concrete block, perlite) 4. Warming of the attic – the same wall insulation from the inside. What are the advantages and disadvantages of different types of heaters are most problematic thermal insulation materials are in green.

Room Housing

Make it close to the ceiling is not recommended, unless your ceiling is not higher than 2.5 meters. It is not necessary to rush between the coating for walls and wallpaper. This is only a matter of personal preference, although each option has advantages and disadvantages. In order to cover the walls of a special coating, they should be very smooth, they will have to align, and this additional work and additional costs. However, this coating is more firmly withstand the flood of neighbors on the top floor. In the event of unforeseen disturbances coverage, you can repair a few tens of minutes (buying the cover, take stock in such cases). Desktop give more scope for imagination, are able to create a unique style of the room, do not require alignment of the walls, are accustomed to work. But when damaged glue have a whole page (if one considers that the wallpaper wont fade, this option may also be a failure).

Well, tons of surprises in the event of vyshezhivuschih neighbors also have full wallpaper glue. Breaking the wall sometimes justified. For example, in my kitchen is an old chimney width of 0.5 meters in length – 1.5 meters. As if this area could be useful for various kitchen utensils! Definitely, it will be broken. The same fate awaits the partition between bath and toilet. Laying at the same time one of the doors, get a room for washing machine. Complete remodeling requires a permit apartment housing authorities and a special project.

This is an additional cost. Therefore, if there is likely soon shift housing, it is better not to do, otherwise potential customers may abandon the purchase of an apartment, fearing trouble with the housing authorities. CEILING sometimes say 'ceiling – as testicle. " I do not mean the shape and the surface is smooth, white, smooth. Such a process can only make ceilings professional, but by aligning the ceiling once in the subsequent repairs you'll have less hassle.

Plastering Walls

The article describes the types of plaster, particularly with the most 'difficult' types of plaster. Before you start finishing the walls, it is necessary to carry out preparatory work, which can be reduced to cleaning the walls of the old coating and eliminate the irregularities. Once you are released from the surface of walls of old wallpaper, paint, etc., can go to the plastering. Competently carry out their own calculations and evaluate the material terms of work is difficult, because it is expedient to invite the experts. Ignore expert advice is not worth it, because it depends on the plastering of the most important – the geometry of the room.

For work on plastering the room suitable mixture, which is composed of two kinds of components: the first have inert properties, the second – connecting (it is, for example, gypsum or cement). The dry mixture is diluted with water, resulting in a solution, which cover the walls. While stucco is not solidified, you can create a variety of artistic elements, such as molding or arch, if it is included in the design space. After the coating becomes firm, the walls are ready for finishing work. Drying times depend on the surface properties of the applied solution, the temperature and humidity, as well as from the number of layers applied. If you plan on plastering in several layers, each successive layer is applied over time, if we are using cement – from 2 to 6 hours if gypsum – from 7 to 15 minutes. Consider the types of plaster 1. "Acoustic plaster." Recently, many people use acoustical plaster, especially if the apartment is finished with a panel house. This type of plaster significantly reduces noise in the room. For its preparation using an aluminum powder which is added to the the main components of the mixture, which gives the surface porosity, improving its sound-absorbing properties.

The Modern Use Of Travertine

Travertine – an ancient stone Tibura, which is widely used for exterior and interior decoration in our days. In many respects this contribute to its advantage. First of all, travertine eco-friendly. It contains no substances harmful to humans, so its use is harmless. In addition, it is very easy and simple to process. It is rather cheap, but it looks expensive. In addition, extremely durable travertine, marble, or as often granite.

Another important advantage – with the passage of time only increases the dignity of travertine. When the air acts on the mineral, the surface becomes denser, respectively, products made of travertine, aging, become stronger. Today travertine gives the possibility of a truly beautiful and unusual situation. Slab of travertine, in contrast to the marble does not seem cold, even if their surface is polished to shine. This unique material is able to create an atmosphere of warmth and comfort, bring home the full force of nature and its unique beauty. Today, this natural stone is used mainly in the decoration – both internal and external.

Travertine is ideal for different kinds of cladding due to its amazing texture. Of a type reminiscent of travertine comb with irregularly shaped cells, so when he sawed on its surface seen bizarre deeper and interesting irregularities. Sometimes these marks are left intact, to emphasize the natural texture of stone, sometimes they are filled with resin and then polished until smooth to get a beautiful unusual pattern. Travertine is treated differently. In order to give him one or another kind, his polish, grind, blend with other materials, sostarivayut, leaving an almost unaltered. It all depends on where exactly use this natural finish kamen.Naruzhnaya travertine travertine used today in construction for facing administrative and residential buildings. Untreated or even especially travertine extensively coarsened used for creating and finishing steps, walkways, terraces, facing fancy columns and arches.
