Brickwork. Secrets of the cladding

by ladynews

Considering the lining of houses, almost everyone can find shortcomings: “Running” vertically, different thickness of horizontal seams, cutting eyes of a checks. Although this is not difficult to avoid if you attach a little effort and patience. Firstly, before starting work, it is necessary to “dry” the entire perimeter without taking into account all kinds of openings. At the same time, you can get away from checks and three -four. Opening the openings, they focus on the multiplicity of brick, it is advisable to have a dressing in half a brick, which facilitates the masonry itself and emphasizes the facade. Secondly, by laying the corners, they use the “clamp”-with a metal rod ten millimeters thick. This allows you to achieve the same thickness of all horizontal seams. If the entire masonry is carried out under the clamp, you can avoid the error of sagging of the patching cord, when the seams in the middle of the wall decrease to five to six millimeters, then they are sharply “gained thick” when correcting the horizon. The thickness of the vertical seams can also be controlled occasionally by clamps or checked every two meters along the length with a plumb line. It is no secret that the geometric parameters of facing brick are far from the ideal. In one batch, specimens from two hundred forty millimeters to two hundred and sixty millimeters along the length may come across. The quality of the cladding in this case suffers very much. There are two options. Each brick is meticulously measured, sorted by the length on the batch. Each batch is used on a separate wall of the building. In the second case, a complex type of cladding is chosen: Italian, cross or similar facing masonry. The essence of the idea is that one horizontal row of cladding alternates with spoon and ek bricks. With this masonry, the openings are not terrible – they can always be tied to a half or three -quarter, and with a shift of vertical seams, instead of the half, its analogue from eleven centimeters to thirteen centimeters is cut, which does not catch the eye and retains the dressing. And two words about the seaming of the seams. A qualitatively performed extension of fifty percent adds entertainment to the facade and vice versa: uneven seams, passes even from high -quality brick laying spoil the perception of perception in general.
