The duration of the effect depends directly on the type of materials for thermal insulation. Applying cheap analogs, some careless builders cause a negative opinion about the expediency of such procedures. Alteza company in its work uses only high-quality dense foam plastic, reliable sealants and paints for insulation and reconstruction of the building's facade. This approach ensures compliance with the thermal effect for up to 30 years or more.
External insulation of the facade of the house is a whole complex of measures. It is unrealistic to independently conduct this kind of work. Here we need specialists with access to work at height, as well as special equipment, tools and materials.
The main element of house insulation is polystyrene foam. It is a gasket between the wall outside the house and a new layer of plaster and paint. This is the most important part of the insulation of the room. Which is better to buy polystyrene - know the qualified specialists of the company Alteza. Employees of Alteza do not use cheap analogues in their work, so that the result will please them for many years.
The use of a thick foam in the insulation ensures protection from the appearance of mold, fungus and damp indoors. Of no less importance is the steady adherence to process technology, as well as the quality of other materials used in the work:
If at least one component of the complex of works is of inadequate quality, the insulation will not last long. Materials can not be saved!
A full calculation of the cost of procedures for warming the room is carried out even before the start of work, based on the costs of the necessary materials. The prices are announced by phone or at the first meeting with the master making the estimate. Also, samples of works are shown on a free-of-charge measurement, and it is discussed what accesses are needed, namely: provision with water, electricity and entrance to the attic of the house.
Trying to save on materials, the result is deplorable. On our site you will see reviews and examples of our work, as well as the results of the activities offering budget prices, firms - fly-by-night in Poltava. The materials used in our activity make it possible to guarantee 3 years for all types of services. In fact, such insulation lasts for several decades, maintaining the brightness of the appearance of the facade.
After acquaintance with photos and video clips on the site, it's easy to make a conclusion about where the real savings are.
Market represents a wide range of construction materials. So there is a question: how to make a right decision and identify the best qualitative and the most appropriate materials at affordable price?
It has excellent heat insulating characteristics. This material consists of thin insulating fibers (the thickness is about 3-5 μm)
All of the fibers are intertwined chaotically, forming the cells. These cells are responsible for good heat insulating characteristics of the basalt wool, because they have air inside.
Comparing to other building materials, basalt wool has the highest density (contains much air). Thermal conductivity of basalt wool in its dry condition is little bigger than thermal conductivity of the still air.
Benefits of using basalt wool as a material for heat insulation: environmental friendliness, soundproofing, fire resistance, durability (depending on professional installation), vapor permeability. Wool doesn`t emit any harmful fumes.
But using of this construction material has some disadvantages: high cost, big weight on cubic meter, wool loses all of its insulating properties with prolonged contact with water.
One of the most well-known manufacturers of basalt wool are: Technonikol, Rockwood, Rockfacade.
This construction material is used for heat insulation of buildings and constructions in the implementation of both external and internal works (basements).
Using of foam plastic in living quarters is not recommended.
Advantages of foam plastic:
This is explained by full closing foam plastic cells and their many-sided form (0,3-0,5 mm.). Closed cycle of the air in cells reduce heat exchange and hinders the penetration of coldness. If the density of the plate is higher, the insulating characteristics of the foam plastic will be better.
There are several types of density: 15, 25, 35 mm. During the construction we don`t recommend using foam plastic with its density less than 25 mm.
- Soundproof and windproof characteristics.
Walls, insulated with foam plastic, don`t require additional protection from the wind. Besides, using foam plastic significantly increases soundproofing of buildings and constructions.
For qualitative insulation from outside noises it`s enough to put the material layer, which thickness is about 5 mm. Good heat insulation and soundproofing depends on the thickness of the foam plastic layers.
- Low water absorption.
Comparing to another materials, foam plastic is characterized by low absorbability. Even with the direct impact of water, it absorbs minimum amount of moisture. It`s so because water can`t seep through the walls of the foam plastic cells, but goes only along separate channels through the connected cells.
- Durability of foam plastic. Foam plastic plates don`t change their physical characteristics during long period of time. They can withstand considerable pressure and at the same time don`t collapse or change the form. The degree of resistance depends on the thickness of the plate, its density and compliance with the rules for stowage.
The foam plate has some flaws, such as comparative combustibility and lack of vapor permeability. Also the foam plastic may become a home for rodents.
