Foaming window construction
To improve the heat and sound insulation properties of windows, it is necessary to produce propenie installation joints of plastic windows. Despite the fact that the procedure is quite simple, not every master is able to complete it correctly.
So before foaming window construction to perform, it is necessary to shake the cylinder with mounting foam well. Only high-quality building mixtures should be selected, since they provide a good adhesion to the surface, improving the thermal insulation properties of the installed window.
There are several criteria that you need to pay attention to when choosing a mounting foam:
- Technique of application: domestic professional. The first option is more suitable for performing small one-time procedures, and for construction purposes, including foaming, a professional option is better.
- Temperature conditions: summer, winter, all-weather.
- Flammability class: fireproof, self-extinguishing, combustible.
The foaming process begins with wetting the surface. This procedure is very important, especially in winter, when the humidity in the room is very low. Please note: there should not be smudges or drops on the walls, otherwise the foam will not stick to the surface.
Then you need to attach the vapor barrier tape, and carefully apply the building mixture to it. Make sure that the space between the inner wall and the profile is three quarters full.
At the end, the outer seams are insulated. For this beginning, the area around the anchors is processed. This procedure should be followed carefully and gently, as freezing may occur due to improper foaming in the winter.
