How to warm a loggia? Whether
the Question of a glazing and warming of a loggia earlier whether later, but overtakes everyone, telling on - it is American, a household . There is a lot of reasons for that. First of all, fire safety: the outstanding stub or the burning paper samolyotik which is started up from the top floors can almost not get on the glazed loggia.
Further if to use a loggia as the seasonal summer vacation spot, it is possible to do without warming, not a question, but here it is necessary to glaze nevertheless - and weathers at us changeable, and with education it is worse, than with welfare (see above). Often the loggia is turned in general into part of the adjacent room, completely removing the balcony block, transferring to it heating batteries and in general making any inconceivable violations of the rules of the capitalist hostel.
We will not consider such extreme - it is competence absolutely of other certain people and even the whole bodies. To us the task was set concrete - to glaze - to warm a prikukhonny loggia so that there even temperature did not fall to the most hard frosts below zero, and to build on it lockers for storage of preparations. It was put about five years ago. Yes and staid till last year, and exactly a year ago it was solved! Winter last we worried without any losses and shocks, though there were 5 - 6 days frosts lower than thirty degrees. So now we rightfully can impart the gained experience.
Prior to the beginning of all this invention we had the most usual loggia: at the left and on the right reinforced concrete panels 150 mm thick, the same concrete floor and a ceiling, all rather smooth and not demanding additional alignment. Length of a loggia of 3,2 m, width - 1,2 m, height - 2,7 m
First of all we glazed a loggia - to order to us made and established the KVE plastic four-folding window with single-chamber double-glazed windows. Two-chamber are excessive under our requirements, as is proved in last winter. The opening shutters equipped with a special grid that any mosquito or “ bull-calf “ did not fly by. Everything was made for couple of days literally, established by a friendly staff (thanks to children once again!) hour for four - well, it was necessary to begin and finish warming and finishing.
In one old movie the phrase sounded: “ Your grandfather saw the engine therefore you will drive it now! “. Something similar was also with me. By the nature of work I constantly face builders, is frequent with finishers. I see how technologies constantly change, one disappear and other materials appear. By a bad dream it is remembered how we with the son, to my constants (not always voluntary, it is necessary to recognize, but sensible!) the assistant, warmed a wall fibrous mats of URSA once! Word “ mats “ here it is not casual …
I Consulted to familiar finishers, wandered on the construction markets and decided on all materials. Bought all necessary, delivered and started.
At first we processed all concrete surfaces a special primer for adhesion improvement, or, speaking more simply, couplings, when gluing a heater. Made it twice, the benefit is simple - is easily put with the roller, does not smell absolutely, and dries instantly! To do any moisture / vapor barrier we did not become - a loggia over us and ours is glazed, rainfall is not terrible any more. Any condensate should not appear too - hardly it will be passed by our heater folgirovanny isobosoms .
Walls, a ceiling and subwindow part were glued folgirovanny 10 - mm an isobosom a foil in the room . Glue - our old development. Somehow we trimmed a ceiling in the apartment with the foam ceiling plates which got now out of fashion. To them we bought glue recommended, but could not glue them - something was in it it … influenzal, and it did not glue at all.
Tried “ Moment “ - fine: instantly and tightly sticks, but burns a tile through. PVA was good - but very long grabs! And we then mixed “ Moment “ vseprozhigayushchiya with PVA vyalosokhnushchy in a proportion about 1:5 also received very practical glue for works of this sort. Such here synergetic effect!
All joints of izolonovy sheets from above stuck with a folgirovanny adhesive tape . Then on all isobosom screwed on expansion bolt shields a wooden obreshyotka from 3 - centimetric whetstones for fastening of the second layer of the same heater - it is better to do it in two layers with a gap between them in 30 - 60 mm. The second layer we fixed also, a foil in a loggia , but not on glue, and paper clips by means of the special stapler. Joints glued a folgirovanny adhesive tape again. Put the second obreshyotka under our final finishing - lining. Laid an electrical wiring under lamps and sockets.
A floor turned out interesting. On it we laid in one layer penopleks (it penopleks who as writes). It appears, amazing material of really new generation! I somehow stood on it a bare foot for about a minute and was taken aback - under a foot as if the heat-insulated floor heats up. It has a tremendous thermal insulation! Besides, it rather rigid and firm - over it we laid DVP, linoleum - and ALL! A year there are heavy cases - there is no sag at all. All joints including on border a floor - a wall, also glued an adhesive tape - it better not to feel sorry not to leave where - nibud for the cold bridge.
As for heating on a case of hard frosts. First we planned to make a heat-insulated floor, but need to carry out concrete works, otherwise, it seems, not to lay it confused - and we is diligent, can notice, avoided “ wet “ works. Some mesh close-meshed heat-insulated floor of the Korean production, thin, not demanding a zamurovyvaniye in concrete met. But our builders were disappointed in it and upset me - where it is thin, say, there and it is torn!
We delivered to an electric heater with the electronic thermostat and a heating element besides of new generation - it really works at temperature drop to the set level and really does not eat oxygen! Took the weakest, on a floor - kilowatt, and correctly made - it was necessary to work to it for all winter well no more than three in any way - four weeks totally.
We chose as final finishing of walls pine lining. Concrete yes of plastic at us around and so for eyes, there was a wish for something more natural. The prices of lining are interesting: the square meter length (3 m) cost then rubles 700 - 1000, short (1,0 - 1,20 m) - only 100 - 150 rubles! At the same quality! And to us short it is also necessary.
It is a pleasure to sheathe well prepared surface yes a qualitative plate. We begin from above and we go quietly down, from time to time being verified with level. It is necessary to add one elementary thing only: lining not from above, by a rusty nail yes in a clean body, and a small gvozdochok in the lower plumelet of a groove that it (gvozdochek) was not visible is beaten (see a photo). I will repeat, a thing elementary, BUT even at us, in the forest region, even in samples at stands at dealers in wood, even in new interiors (!) it is often nailed quite so - casual nails in the front plane!
There was an idea to zatonirovat slightly all tree. Tried on scraps and understood that it is better without any wood stain - a tree with very beautiful texture, any lotions only you will spoil it. Proshkurili all properly, walked usual parquet lacquer twice. A floor, as I already spoke, laid linoleum, all internal corners stuck with a thin white plastic corner, and everything turned out very much even fine! Solenyam - to cookings it is cozy and now it is far more pleasant to ourselves to come to a loggia.
Necessary addition: Americanism “ household “ at the beginning of notes it is not casual at all. Recently we on Skype a solid hour discussed technology of a fermentation of cabbage (I in army somehow was engaged in it which - and I remember that I know) with my Chicago friend, she told me about jam, I it - about moonshining (in what there are some skills too). And for some reason it seems to me, all these conversations - not only age … Trump pulled together us.
