Step by step instructions for laying bricks with video

shape Facing brick ennoble the house of any material: sandwich panels, foam and aerated concrete, of limestone.At and others, and, in addition, will create additional protection from moisture and heat loss.Decorating the house facade of bricks, albeit more expensive and time-consuming than in the siding, but will look better and last longer.In addition, the lining can be made when the construction of the house has been completed, and due to the fact that such a brick is different identical sizes and particularly smooth edges, make it quite simply on their own.

cladding or facade, brick is the same size as normal, but there are also more narrow or large versions.Inside, it has a cavity that provides lower weight and lower thermal conductivity.This is a fairly high-quality material - moisture, frost-resistant and very durable.

Preparing for veneering

Works on facing executed, as a rule, after the erection of walls and insulation.Between the layer of insulation and facing brick must be a gap of 2-3 cm for ventilation to prevent moisture accumulation.With the same purpose between every 4-5 bricks in the first row is left blank solution seam.

After warming base should protrude a few centimeters to a wall of bricks was something to build on.If this projection is no need to increase the cap.Before facing work it needs to be checked with the level and bring the solution to a horizontal surface, if necessary.

Wall of bricks should be linked to the house wall.This can be achieved in several ways.For example, in the bearing wall hammered anchor made of galvanized steel with a diameter of 4-6 mm, so that its free end is caught between rows of decorative bricks.Another way - to install in a wall plug and attach it binding wire so long that its end was clamped rows of bricks, but did not go out.On square meter of the wall must be installed about 5 fixtures, placing them approximately every 60-70 cm in length, and every 4 rows in height.Around the door and window openings tying runs thicker.



solution for masonry bricks made from cement brand M500 and carefully sifted sand in the ratio 1: 4.The dry mixture is diluted with water to a consistency of solution that could roll a ball, and he has not crumbled.It is better to mix the solution in small quantities, to use it as quickly as possible.It is not recommended to add lime or antifreeze solution since it can cause efflorescence.Flow solution for laying bricks is much less than the average.


Important in laying bricks - to observe the accuracy and ensure the uniformity of the seams.Brick looks better standard sizes with horizontal seams thickness - 10-15 mm, and vertical - 8-10 mm.Cut bricks can be a disk grinder stone, but better jobs cuts at the front to avoid.


Just before the party's work is soaked bricks so that they are not pulling the moisture out of the solution.Then, on the brick layer is applied in a solution of 1.5-2 cm so that it did not reach the edge of about 1 cm, most often for this purpose use a template from a square rod 10 x 10 mm.Precise movement brick is laid on the previous row or the base and slightly rubbed.

also possible to lay the rod on the outer edge of the previous row, put "B" of the solution, and it has laid the bricks.On the surface, you can tap the handle of a trowel or a mallet to come out possible air bubbles.When laying the first row should be checked periodically with the help of his level.

begin to trim the corners.Each lift series 5-6 and pull the cord between them on which dub the remaining bricks.Around windows and doors series is not interrupted, and the bricks are cut to above the openings and subsequently turned right drawing layouts.Several lower rows for extra strength can be reinforced with a fine metal mesh.

When laying need to immediately remove adhesive speaking with the wall surface.After the solution has started to set, the bricks can not be moved.Every few rows of bricks is to wipe with a damp sponge to clean the surface.

Facing brick is also used for internal work, for example, they trim fireplaces, columns, fragments of walls.In this case met all the requirements for the installation and accuracy required limit.
