Making foundation different surfacing materials - work towards the implementation of which must be taken with the same care as that of a wall at home as a whole.Besides decorative function design of the foundation (base) is protective, protects it from weathering and from getting wet during different rainfall, as well as providing it with additional thermal insulation.
Decide what material to decorate the lower part of the house, you make your choice, given the architectural style and design of the building.For example, a stone - a unique choice for bu
ilding a chalet-style.The most common methods of foundation design - facing artificial or natural stone materials, external plaster.
artificial stone.This building material is created on the basis of high-quality materials and has excellent performance: it is durable, resistant to many mechanical damage, weathering and temperatures, has a more affordable compared to the cost of natural stone.The technology foundation decorating them is much easier than natural stone as artificial lighter and has a smooth surface on the reverse side.Currently, this material became the most popular in the design of foundations, particularly ceramic tiles made of artificial stone - granite, imitating the texture and color of natural natural granite.
Facing the artificial stone is mounted on a variety of surfaces: brick and concrete, wood and metal, plasterboard, particleboard.Ensure that the base, regardless of type, dry, smooth, durable and not subject to shrinkage or deformation.Clean the surface of the foundation of paint, grease, oil or fixed plaster.The surface of the foundations of porous materials primed deep penetration or adhesive mixture.Lay on the floor next to the prepared surface, at least 2-3 square meters.meters of decorative stone, alternate elements in thickness, color, size, use tiles from several different packages at the same time.
After preparing proceed to the design of the foundation.Apply adhesive cement tile on the back of each piece.When laying tiles, avoid straight lines - joints horizontally and vertically.Vibrating motion Firmly press the tile in the adhesive mass, starting with the outer corners.For heavy tiles Apply glue not only on, but also on the tiles immediately attaching it.Fancy-work (filling the space between the tiles) make with a dry mixture.To avoid differences in color for each batch take the same amount of water.Use a spatula to jointing fill seam solution and then straighten it pressed move.A stiff brush to remove excess solution, without waiting for it to harden.
technology processing natural stone foundation similar to the above.When decorating the surface of natural stone surfaces carry out a thorough markup in accordance with the forms of fragments.Use adhesives suitable for the chosen type of stone, to avoid oxidation or damage to the surface of the material.
Exterior plaster.Prepare the surface by cleaning it it any kind of contamination.Before starting work, secure in the wall at a distance of 10-15 mm.apart small wooden pegs.Before applying plaster, moisten the surface of the foundation with clean water.
material is applied in two steps.Dilute the mixture with water selected, according to instructions.Using a spatula sprinkles plaster on the wall until you get to the mixture covered pegs.According to the manufacturer's instructions, soak time required to complete drying of the first layer.Apply a second coat of plaster.Vary the texture coating - has not yet dried on the material, apply a drawing with special stamps, rollers.
