As for the color range of plastic lining, it is very large. You can choose any, most importantly, what you need to pay attention to, so that all the purchased vagonki were from the same lot and the same tonality. Of course, you must always pay attention to the quality of the material. To do this, take the wagon in hand and carefully consider it. The thicker the material, the better. The next thing that we pay attention to is the presence and number of stiffeners, as well as their condition. And the last criterion of quality is defined as follows. The edge of the panel bends and returns to its original position. If after that there was a trace, then the material is substandard.
Preparing tools and materials: finishing the loggia with the lining
Before you finish and sew the balcony, you need to do a number of preparatory work, including measurements, preparation of the necessary tools and materials, as well as preliminary work with the walls.

Works with interior finishing always begin with the removal of sizes and materials. Here, difficulties should not arise and you can manage yourself. It will be enough to measure the length and height, and then calculate the total area of the balcony or loggia. Then the doorways and the size of the windows are measured. In the end result, we can obtain the data of the area, which will be lined with lining.
Once all dimensions have been received, you can send for the materials.
For work you will need:
- Insulation material, at least 40mm thick;
- Antifungal treatment;
- Membranes superdiffusive and single-layered vapor permeable;
- Spiked board about 20mm thick;
- Wooden bars with dimensions 60x40 and 60x15.Used for a crate, which will hold the vapor barrier.
As for the slopes, a planed board may also be needed here, but its thickness should be less, approximately 15mm, and the width should be equal to the walls on the slopes. As a heater, you can give preference to stone wool, which has a number of positive properties in comparison with polystyrene.
Tools to be used:
- Impact drill;
- Marker or pencil;
- Liquid nails;
- Clamps for fasteners;
