A more economical option is to protect the room from moisture and cold on its own. The most popular material among home masters is a polystyrene foam is a moisture -proof insulation. This material is sold in rolls having a 5 mm thick, which is easily glued to the surface of the walls and masked with wallpaper or drywall.

You need to calculate the required amount of material in order to insulate the internal walls. Also, do not forget about small gaps (0, 5 cm) between neighboring sheets of polystyrene foam.

Follow the cutting of the panels in advance. In the absence of opportunities for using the machine in order to cut the foam, perform the insulation cutting using a sharp knife or hot nichrome wire. All insulation work must be carried out inside the ventilated room in order to get rid of the unpleasant odor.

The glue solution must be applied to the side of the panel and press it to the wall surface. Using the force, make ironing cutting cutting using a rubber roller. Each sheet must be applied to the neighboring leaving a gap 2, 5 cm, so that then it will not be a small seam.

Wait until it completely does not dry out the glue according to the instructions from the manufacturer. Next, you need to close the seams using the mounting foam and cut off the excess using a knife.

A thin final layer of putty must be applied to polystyrene foam. After drying it, you can proceed to gluing the walls with vinyl or non -woven wallpaper. With the formation of minor irregularities on the insulated wall, the finishing material will hide these defects.
