Today, the Canadian technology with the use of insulating SIP panels is becoming more and more widespread. They consist of two OSB boards, between which there is a polystyrene foam serving as a thermal insulator.
The most important advantage of frame houses made of SIP panels compared to other buildings erected by conventional methods is the absence of any shrinkage. This means that their internal finishing can begin immediately after construction. For example, brick houses require time to shrink, it can take up to one year or even more. During this time to carry out finishing should not.
Proceeding to the interior decoration of Canadian houses, it should be taken into account that the surfaces of the walls, floor, ceiling, as a rule, get perfectly even. Consequently, they do not need to level them independently with plaster. As a result, the time costs for interior decoration of such houses are significantly reduced.
The only thing that should be done before proceeding directly to the finishing work is to seal the joints, for which a paint grid is used. Then the joints are sanded and, finally, polishing is applied. However, in bathrooms, resorted to a slightly different option. Joints are covered with sealant, for example, hermobutyl. Since this mastic does not harden completely, it remains elastic, and cracks do not appear. Floor panels are masticated completely, as well as the bottom of the wall – about 150-200 mm. This ensures safety in the case of leaking appliances and plumbing fixtures.
