On every floor (concrete and timber), the dust and debris will need to be cleared, likewise, any sharp object which may cause protrusions should be removed. Thermal primers can be used for solidfloors which will further help in the insulation procedure and also make the concrete ready for adhesives, due to its sealing ability. Each primer has instructions and it is advisable that this is followed to letter.
For timber floors, when necessary, repairs of any loose boards must be done. It is advisable that the insulation boards are not laid down in a row but in a wobble fashion. This helps to guard against unevenness. To secure the boards on a solid floor, laying them on the proper type of adhesive is recommended, while for timber floors, the boards will be screwed.
Insulation boards should be taped together to seal all joined areas in the board. Before tapping, the use of acrylic sealant can be employed to further strengthen the board’s seal and prevent any loss of heat downward. For liquid screeds, polythene membrane should be laid down to guard the liquid when it’s poured out. Ascertain that there are no punctures in the sheet and ensure that it goes up towards the wall to take on the entire screed with extra attention paid to the corners of the room.
The tape needs to be used as much as its usefulness is perceived. After this, the ‘edge insulation’ will need to be installed, asthis helps the screed move to a certain point which is very important when the floor is later heated up. The PVC apron that comes with the edge insulation should be laid on the floor and thoroughly secured with waterproof tape. Take out the edge insulation from the roll and start placing it securely around the room, where the walls are made of plasterboards you can use staple guns, if they are brick walls, the edge insulation and apron can be held using the tape.
