The use of slag for floor insulation

Correct insulation of a house, namely its floor, always causes increased attention from both the future homeowner and builders. The fact is that intense heat exchange occurs through the floor..

When performing work, builders insulate the basement so that the temperature near the floor is or is equal to room temperature, or in the worst case, it may differ by 2-3 degrees Celsius. To carry out insulation work, you will need a carpentry tool, sheets of roofing material, beams with a section of 2-3 mm. To check the quality of the work performed, a building level is required.

Floor insulation works are carried out in three stages. At the first stage, work is performed with the rough floor. At the second stage, waterproofing is performed, at the final stage, a final floor covering is formed. As a material for thermal insulation, slag-containing plates or mats can be used. Before starting work, it is necessary to check the correct placement of the log in the horizontal plane. If deviations are detected, then they must be leveled.

The work on insulation also includes an operation to protect the floor from rodents, which have adapted to equip their holes in it. For this, a special mesh is laid, which prevents the efforts of these little pests. After laying this mesh, the granulated slag is backfilled. A subfloor is installed on top of the poured slag. After that, the heat insulator is laid from mats or slabs..

At the final stage of the work, the finishing coating is laid. All the remaining free space must be filled with a pre-prepared mixture of slag and lime, which is mixed in a ratio of 1 part of lime to 9 parts of slag. This mixture can guarantee the absence of rodents..
