Laying laminate on boards

After leveling the floor and cleaning it from debris, a springy damping tape is laid to damp sounds along the walls. So that the seams of the substrate do not fall on the joints of the boards, sheets or roll substrate roll out across the floor across the direction of the laminate lamellas.

It fits only the smooth side up and is interconnected end to end, without overlap. To avoid shearing the substrate, all sheets are fastened together with building tape. If the damper tape is not used, you can put the edges of the substrate a little to the wall a couple of centimeters. In the future, the excess is cut off. In order not to crush the porous material while walking, it is not recommended to lay the entire substrate at once – it is better to lay it out as needed.

Beams in a wooden house

  Beams in a wooden house

Between the beams stack heat and sound insulation material. Below mount vapor barrier film to protect against moisture, and on top – waterproofing film.

After the run-up layer (flooring) has been produced, the plates of the heat-insulating layer are installed, this can be:

  • mineral wool;
  • Styrofoam;
  • extruded polystyrene foam;
  • perlite;
  • claydite.

Heat insulation plates are recommended to be laid tightly to each other. For the attic, the dying floor is quite suitable, from 2 to 3 cm, for thermal insulation. After completing the filling, the reinforcing mesh is unwound, after which the layer is poured with a cement screed, which is the rough base for the floor covering. For the attic across the beams, the logs are hammered onto which the tongue-and-groove boards are installed. Between logs and beams, it is recommended to place tarred pieces of cardboard or hardboard. (more…)
