Measurements made in Finland have shown that the airtightness of many small houses is lower then the level of requirements specified in Sweden. States that the most important areas for sealing up external walls in concrete structures are the joints in the internal shell, the joints between concrete and timber structures, and the joints between door and window frames. All these areas can be made airtight by using appropriate materials and construction methods. In general, the air tightness of small concrete houseshas been found to be good and to comply with the specified requirements.
