Ways of warming and finishing the loggia
In large gassed cities, people are forced to glaze the loggias and balconies to keep the house comfortable and healthy. In addition, they add a few meters to their living space.
Is it always legal to insulate the loggias?
Before proceeding with the reconstruction of the loggia,it is necessary to get acquainted with the laws by which tenants of apartment buildings must preserve the appearance of the building. This applies to the color of the windows. In addition, you need to know that central heating is forbidden to take to the loggia.
Warming up the loggia - reducing heat loss
In order to minimize heat loss,it will not be enough just to close the cracks after glazing, to cover the walls with panels. This is not enough for finishing the loggia. It is necessary to insulate the parapet, ceiling and walls. To do this, use modern insulating materials, which are characterized by increased thermal insulation and moisture resistance. For example, mineral wool ISOVER, Rockwool, foam plax, moisture resistant Knauf can be used to finish the loggia.
How to insulate the floor
Warming and finishing the loggia is impossible without repairsex. Before starting the repair, all the cracks along the perimeter of the room should be covered with sandwich panels, preferably three-layer ones. On top of the design pour mounting foam, give it a complete dry and then apply a lubricant waterproofing (sealant for outdoor work). Then you can lay roll insulation.
Internal and external furnish of a loggia
As a rule, the outer side of the parapetit is finished with plastic panels. A parapet is a wall that undergoes temperature changes. To effectively insulate and finish the loggia it is necessary to use foam plates, which are covered with a layer of foam foil. If you decide to use aluminum windows, then you do not interfere with the insulation "Izokom". It will not only retain heat, but will also provide good sound insulation and prevent the appearance of mold and fungus. By the same principle, the ceiling and walls are insulated.

This is a very important stage of reconstruction. The final interior of the room depends on it. Most often, a wooden or plastic board or panel is used. From the ecological point of view, the finishing material is made of natural wood. The only drawback of this coating is its susceptibility to changes in temperature and humidity. Before installing a wooden lining, it should be treated with special antiseptic compounds. And one more important detail. When installing panels made of natural wood, leave a small gap against the wall in case of deformation of this material.
Plastic lining is no less popular forfurnish of a loggia. This material is attractive due to its affordable price in comparison with wood and ease of installation. Undoubtedly, the aesthetic appeal of the material is also important.
It is quite obvious that such a work will require a special tool. To finish the loggia you will need:

- a hammer;
- A sharp knife.
Additional materials are construction foam and silicone sealant.
