Attaching boards vertically, you proceed from the sizes of heat-insulating plates; the distance between frame members has to correspond to width of strips of heater. For warming of walls expanded polystyrene or mineral wool in the form of easy plates which if necessary can be cut are widely used, adjusting in the place. Insert plates between boards as it is possible more densely, without leaving gaps.

3. Close heat-insulating material polyethylene film of membrane type. Such covering will perform function of waterproofing.
