To align the walls on beacons using plaster

Application of the plaster is necessary to align the surface, to give them the required flatness.
But to obtain the required surface without skills novice difficult.
use of certain processing methods facilitates plastering works, allowing them to perform even novice plasterer.

be aware novice plasterer?
To facilitate plastering their own hands using special devices, called beacons.
In addition, we must learn to choose the right plasters.

few tips for choosing plaster mixtures

choosing finishing materials, try to stay on one manufacturer.This will avoid the incompatibility of materials and the emergence of various defects later.

the Russian market of building materials present plasters based on gypsum and cement.
gypsum plasters preferable because they allow to apply a plaster layer up to 5 cm, which does not cause the formation of cracks.
Gypsum mixture is not subject to shrinkage, having high ductility.
Due to high adhesion and low weight gypsum plaster mix is ​​an ideal material for the

alignment of the ceiling.
In contrast to the cement mixture, plaster has a high sound and thermal insulation, and is able to "breathe".
Gypsum plaster mixture is considered the best material for the alignment of smooth concrete substrates without reinforcing mesh.

best gypsum plaster mixture is considered to be material, manufactured by the German company Knauf.But the cost of these mixtures makes us look plastering materials, produced by Russian manufacturers.
Here are some Russian manufacturers producing high-quality materials, including dry mix.
way, the dry mixture preferably has finished as enable the master to choose the desired consistency.
These include: dry mixture of "miners", the material of the company "TD Stroymontazh MS" ready-mix company Rusean, and of course, Mansurovsky mixture of Joint Stock Company "ISU".
recently appeared on the Russian market cheap mix of European quality young construction company Kreps.

Any work begins with a preparatory phase

Before plaster surface, it should be prepared properly.Wall
cleaned of dirt, dust, oil stains, paint and other debris.
the cleaned surface and the dried applied several layers of primer.The primer should be chosen from the same manufacturer that acquired mortar.Preference was given to acrylic primer that can be easily applied with a wide brush or roller.

Primed and dried surface is ready for plastering.

Plasterer at Beacon

Alignment walls on beacons greatly simplifies the process and improves the quality of the work, although it requires more preparation time.
There are several options for leveling walls beacons.
in special galvanized steel profiles are used as beacons.
Beacons for leveling walls made of the damage to the surface and planned regulation of the plaster layer.
as beacons can be used twisted screws, which hats are aligned on the level of the rule and the laid solution followed by alignment.

For beginners, it is recommended to use as beacons galvanized metal profile.

To set the Beacon Profile surface held vertical lines superimposed on the line a few piles of solution and applied profile, carefully leveled on level.When the solution has hardened, the profile is further strengthened with a solution.
Beacons are set in increments of less than the length of your existing rules.If a rule has a length of 1.5 meters, the installation of beacons step should be to choose not more than 1 m. The disadvantage of metal lighthouse could be his rust if it is installed in a room with high humidity.
better to stay at the lighthouse, well-known manufacturers such as Knauf made of galvanized metal and good decent thickness and rigidity.Beware podtelok.

often used as beacons plaster.

drawn by vertical lines on the plaster lashes, thicker at the place where the wall is hollow, and less in convex areas.For solution line is applied generally to the level and aligned.Rule removed the extra part of the solution.Step installation of beacons is chosen on the basis of the length of the rule.align the walls on beacons using plaster

specialists prefer beacons that do not require special installation.These beacons can be installed, using a metal U-shaped profile for attaching drywall sheets.Better to take a profile with a width of no more than 20 mm, so that it is easy to include the right.Make
profile blank in length equal to the height of the wall.On the wall are applied strictly vertical lines.On line snaps plaster, applied profile, which is inserted in the rule level.Carefully tapping the desired level and the excess solution is removed.After pre-curing profile solution with rule removed, the profile is cleaned of solution residues, and is preparing to set a new beacon.
This process significantly reduces the time of preparation of a surface for plastering.It is indispensable in areas with high humidity.

Alignment walls on beacons with their own hands is nakidyvanii on the surface of the prepared mixture and align it with the rules.
Rule should pull from the bottom up, moving constantly from left to right.
before the application of the rules to a solution is required to moisten it with water using a damp washcloth.

plaster solution should have the consistency of liquid cream for surfaces with small deviations from vertical and thick cream for the walls with big gaps.
Dilute solution as much as you are able to work out for 20 minutes.This is the life of a plaster solution.

To align the walls without beacons need not only experience, but also the ability to apply the rule.
method consists in leveling the surface with the help of rules.
advantage of this method consists in high productivity and material savings.
The disadvantage is that it is impossible to obtain a high surface flatness.
