- Glazing of the loggia (balcony)
If your apartment has a loggia, then this is already a huge plus. An inconspicuous outward-facing concrete deck with lattice railing is an accurate description of most balconies. To fix this state of affairs, it will be necessary to glaze and insulate the balcony, it is possible to do this with your own hands. At the end of all the work, you will have a kind of "pantry" where you can put a vacuum cleaner that interferes with everyone in the room or other household items … Simply put, consider the option of turning the loggia into a small and useful area of the apartment … By the way, we considered a way to expand the kitchen for balcony account, very interesting option.
Insulation of the balcony with foam blocks
Do not rush to buy windows right away. First, decide what they will be placed on. Naturally, on the parapet. It is necessary to remove all gratings and other metal fences and prepare the area for laying the parapet. Brick is perhaps the worst and most unsuccessful material for building on a balcony. It is too heavy (especially red), and it cannot be laid "sideways" more than a meter high. Otherwise, you will lose precious square decimeters of the balcony area. Foam blocks up to ten centimeters wide are ideal. The main advantage of aerated concrete is blistering, that is, lightness and increased strength. The external properties of foam blocks are lower than those of bricks, so the outside parapet can be upholstered with panels, tin, or whatever …
Glazing of the loggia (balcony)
After completing the concrete and masonry work, you will notice how your loggia has gradually transformed into a mini-room. However, it is still necessary to carry out interior decoration and, most importantly, the installation of a window. When choosing window designs, many look at the cheapness of aluminum and wood options. This is wrong, because the heat capacity is important for the balcony, which will be fully provided by PVC windows.
After installing the window and sealing all the seams, you can do the insulation from the inside. Decide on the climatic features of your latitude. If the winters are cold, then heating is carried out under the upholstery. It can be electronic and steam (connected to heating). You can make insulation with mineral wool or some other fiber. It is clear that the upholstery is laid on top of the insulation. If initially you didn't plan to cover with panels, then you should know that plaster is not the best heat insulator. Carrying out the radiator to the balcony will lead to strong condensation and can lead to increased moisture formation throughout the apartment. Alternatively, you can install a warm floor.
