In order to insulate the balcony correctly, you need to have specific knowledge, so for advice we turned to Violetta Paslar, who is a specialized specialist of the company. - There are many ways to insulate a balcony, we will consider the most popular one - the use of Penoplex insulation. This material can be used for all types of surfaces - floor, walls, ceiling. Such insulation is not only the mostpopular, but also simple. You will need sheets of the insulation itself in the size of 1,200 x 600, fasteners - parachutes, glue for insulation, mounting foam "Macroflex" for closing seams. Stages of balcony insulation are simple, and experiencedbuilders will produce these works in a short time. Also for additional insulation of the room I recommend to install an electric floor heating, as it will provide heating of the balcony and make finding it more comfortable. Then there is the decision for the finish - it can be anything: decorative plaster, painting walls, wooden or plastic panels, wallpaper. To insulate the balcony, it is necessary to makework on its glazing. Below are tips from Ekaterina Avsatova (company ""), who knows everything about high-quality glazing. - Before starting work, it is necessary to determine how the balcony will be used. If your goal is to organize storage places there, then an easy glazing option is suitable, but if you decide to combine a loggia with a room, then in addition to insulating the walls, ceiling and floor, it is necessary to make winter glazing. Accordingly, when measuring structures it is necessarytake into account the thickness of the insulation and provide for the installation of plastic expanders (special PVC accessories with a width of 20 to 120 mm). If this is not done, then after the walls and ceiling are warmed, the sash can not be opened. We recommend windows of a profile of 70 or 76 mm,Also it is not necessary to save on double-glazed windows (it is better to install a two-chamber energy-saving). If the balcony / loggia goes to the noisy roadway, it is advisable to put noise-proof double-glazed windows, which will lower the noise level and better keep the heat. Built-in cabinets and mezzanine on the balcony should be planned in advance, in a plastic frame, instead of an opening leaf with a double-glazed window, you can make a dumb window and put a sandwich panel.
