Why you have to insulate your summer house?
If you want to store things with value, like cars, bikes, instruments and other things with value it’s important to insulate your summer house. If you want to put freezers, refrigerators and suchlike in your summer house, we also recommend you to use insulation. Another good reason to insulate is, if you want to use your summer house throughout the whole year, because you want to use it as a man-cave or an office space.
The ways of insulation
With Lugarde you can choose between 3 different kinds of high quality insulation. If you don’t want to get cold feet, or you sit/lie on the floor of your summer house. You can get floor insulation, with floor insulation the cold will not come up through the floor. The insulation plates have a thickness of 4 cm and they will be placed between the floor beams.
If you want to put a heater in your summer house it’s important to have wall insulation, with wall insulation the heat will stay inside of the summerhouse. With wall insulation you get an extra inner wall of 19 mm thickness. The plates will be placed on the beams of the wall with special made mounting clips, so the outside wall moves independently from the inner wall. This is very important for the natural movement of the wood.
The last way of insulation is roof insulation, heat rises. With roof insulation you prevent losing heat through the roof. The roof insulation consists of 4 cm thick plates, with the asphalt nails we send you, you can attach the insulation between the shingles and the roof boarding. It is possible to choose all 3 insulation types, just one or you can combine 2.
