Sequence of operations

  1. Waterproofing. The surface is lined with a special film or covered with waterproof plaster.
  2. Thermal insulation. Here are suitable mineral wool, foam, foam, that is, any materials with a low coefficient of thermal conductivity.
  3. Surface alignment. In the presence of small defects, it is customary to use a self-leveling mixture. Large flaws can be leveled by means of a tie or under the wooden flooring to install logs, which are transverse beams made of solid wood. As a rule, the floor level of the living space and the loggia is different, in view of this, with the help of lag, we raise the floor on the loggia to the required mark. In addition, if there is a need to raise the floor by 20 cm, a layer of expanded clay will allow this.
  4. Primer. This tool increases the strength of the base and contributes to a better bond with the floor covering. It is common to apply an alkyd or polystyrene primer to the surface of wood, the concrete base is treated with an epoxy variety, applying it two or three times.

Finishing options


The most elementary reception, pertinent for a loggia of any kind.It is best to buy paint, in which the main component is acrylic, polyurethane or epoxide. This option is characterized by resistance to atmospheric influences. To prevent paint from falling onto walls, masking tape should be used.


First of all, we form a frame resembling a box from the bars and additionally strengthen one timber in the middle of the structure. Covering the surface with varnish will help to ensure a long life of the floor. Next step we sew between the boards with the help of screws and corners, and then with the dowel-nails attach the frame to the concrete base. Then we lay the boards perpendicular to the lags and fix them.

If the tree is of poor quality, it should be processed and covered with linoleum. Due to the fact that the tree is light, it can be framed not only a loggia, but also a half-forest.

Ceramic tile

To avoid injury, the best option would be to put a tile with a rough surface. To do this work, you must stock the following materials:

Using a spatula, distribute the mortar to the inside of the subfloor and the back surface of the tile. The distance from one tile to another must be the same, to achieve this, we install the cross-shaped beacons. We lay tiles on the construction level. After finishing the procedure, you must hide the seams under a layer of putty.

Lay laminate made only on a perfectly flat surface. Lock the wedges against the wall and threshold.Begin the procedure from the side that is opposite to the door. Installation can be done diagonally, along or across. For greater reliability, each new row move at least forty centimeters.

Between the material and the wall, you must provide a place for the plinth, this distance should be equal to about ten millimeters. Next, you need to interconnect the laminate plates with the help of locks, which are provided with each element of the coating.

There are three types of locks:

  • Connection in the way of "constructor". Raise the finished row of laminate and attach to it another detail. The resulting strips of plates fasten together.
  • Connection method "podbivki". The elements are fixed in length, after which they need to be lined up in order to be joined in width.
  • The connection is by means of an insert made of plastic; it attaches to the plate in width.
