We extend the life of a wooden house

The construction of a wooden house is not cheap. Moreover, for subsequent care of it, you need to make a lot of effort. After all, wood, in comparison with more modern building materials, is more exposed to external factors.

We are saved from the fungus

One of the worst enemies of a wooden house is a fungus. There are also antimicets that are a “mixture” of algae and fungi. They not only make the facade of the house unsightly, but also destroy wood fibers, make their structure soft. All this over time can seriously damage the main designs of the house.

Fungus in a wooden house

Antiseptics are used to protect against fungi and various molds. They contain special antimicrobial substances that protect the tree from the appearance of blue and are usually applied to the surface to painting. Some antiseptics contain oils, but their disadvantage is a strong smell.

The most modern substances not only protect the house from mold and fungus, but also perform decorative functions. They usually are tinting coatings. A special place among such substances is occupied by primer antiseptics that are applied over any paint. Additionally, they will protect the tree from sunlight and atmospheric precipitation. For the most part, antiseptics have a transparent color so as not to hide the natural beauty of the tree, you can watch examples here.

Regardless of which tool was chosen for processing the house, it should have the following characteristics:

Do not pose a danger to people’s health and pets;

Not to have a sharp or unpleasant odor that does not disappear for a long time;

Have high water resistance;

Any paint can be applied to it.

Insect protection

Pests of a wooden house.

Usually insects do not cause such much harm as the same fungus. The fact is that the main pests simply do not encroach on a painted and dry tree. Yes, and even if bugs start in the cracks, then in small quantities and use them only as their home, without gnawing deeply inside.

It is worth solving the problem with insects only if they have really divorced them. For these purposes, special poisons for insects are used, which need to process corners and cracks at home.

Fire protection

It is extremely desirable to treat wood to protect against fire with special means called anti -pirens.

These substances are divided into two main types. The first type is more effective. It contributes to the formation of a special film on a tree, which does not pass oxygen. Moreover, it is formed only at high temperature. Such a film prevents the occurrence of a fire.

Processing with a special protective composition

The second type of antipyrene is aimed at reducing the intensity of the spread of flame. During an increase in temperature, the substance begins to secrete non -combustible gases. They contribute to the displacement of oxygen from the wood structure, which makes it possible to go out of the flame as quickly as possible. In terms of effectiveness, such antipyrene is slightly lower, but they need less to process them.

Currently, on the market you can find swelling paints and varnishes, which are also aimed at protecting wooden buildings from flame. The manufacturer adds special substances to such paints that, when heated, begin to release carbon dioxide. In fact, such paints are also a “fire extinguisher”. Когда они оказываются под воздействием огня, то лакокрасочный слой как бы разбухает, становясь пенообразным. It is worth noting that such paints are no different in color or smell from ordinary. With the exception of a higher cost. But this is a great opportunity to combine painting and applying a fire -retardant layer.
