Drywall - the most popular material for finishing walls and ceilings in residential and non-residential premises.Demand in recent years has increased significantly.Plasterboard is easy to work with - and this is, of course, the main advantage of the material.It is easy to cut and easily mounted to a predetermined position.Sheets have absolute ecological purity, able to create delicious sound, thermal insulation - is not surprising that their sales are increasing.

But only one installation of the drywall does not "get off."To erected the structure served you faithfully, you should implement a quality grout.After the gap left by simply negate the all declared advantages of the material.Yes, this procedure is not only responsible for the appearance of design, but also for the term of its operation.If you do not pay full attention to grouting GCR, the unscheduled facing surfaces in your home is not far off.


Competent training - a guarantee of success ↑

First and foremost, you must make sure that all the docking place gypsum board firmly attached to the frame.Each of the screws should be "screwed" in drywall at a depth of about a millimeter, while not breaking through the paperboard itself.

followed by complete cleaning of the surface from dirt and dust - can not be without it.After all, the quality of grouting depends on the durability of the entire construction of plasterboard.A clean work surface - one of the fundamental "quality" of the process.

Do not think that the jointing plasterboard - work from the category of burdensome and unbearable to perform with his own hands.The case is "everyday" should only be accurate and consistent.

next step on the way to the putty - direct training sheets.Opinion masters on their ends diverge dramatically.Some experts believe that the ends should be subjected to a corner cut mandatory.His glance, they explain that this maneuver increases the strength of the weld, and also makes it easy termination.

Others do not recommend doing so because it is firmly convinced that the restrictions of the edges of the sheet provided by the manufacturer is sufficient to fulfill the task.

How exactly do at this stage - it's up to you.

selection and preparation of a mixture ↑

Choice putty should be given maximum attention.Caulking GCR will be most productive with a special mixture of gypsum, which has the property of quick drying and easy to grinding.Also, it is able to tightly "hold" joints sheets - high anchoring effect is obvious, which is important when using plasterboard for the walls and especially the ceiling.

Important!For any of the fillers has its own "recipe".Do not be lazy to read labels on packages!

incorrectly diluted mixture - a mixture of poor quality, because of which may be affected joints, and hence the entire surface finishes.

Pour into a bucket of a certain number of "powder", fill it with water - with the help of the construction of the mixer make a uniform mixture;Always make sure that there are no lumps.In short, you should have the consistency of thick cream.

Important!Weight in no case shall the drain with a spatula!

process of grouting ↑

necessary materials and tools:

  • ready plaster;
  • primer;
  • spatula;
  • serpyanka;
  • broad brush.
Priming joints
Primer seams enhance adhesion, reduce material consumption

Once again, make sure that the seams left dust and "burr".If you want to sweep up the remnants of their broad brush.Promazhte seams protective primer (primer) and wait until it dries.Now you can proceed directly to the sealing of.

Hang on a bit of putty spatula and carefully pressed into the mass in the joints, smeared it along them.On the seam apply serpyanku, flatten with a spatula.The tape must be fully recessed into the freshly applied weight.

Sticker serpyanka
Sticker serpyanka needed to form a perfectly flat surface of the monolithic

Important!Serpyanka length should be slightly greater than the length of the seam.

By grinding should begin only after drying putty."Polishing" joints should be using a special trowel grid or a simple "nazhdachki."

surface must get exemplary level.Again promazhte seams primer and let it dry.Voila: the ceiling and the walls are ready for further processing - painting, wallpapering.

As they say: it is better to see once than to hear a hundred times.

Why burst the seams?↑

main causes of cracking joints - structural errors as well as errors in the seals, which could be described as:

  • negligence in preparing putty;
  • fragility fixture GCR;
  • no reinforcing tape.

But this is not all the aspects that can cause a defect.For example, the cause of cracking the corner joints can become rough walls seismic activity.This usually happens when the walls of wood.The material lends itself to the natural expansion, whereby problems arise.

For the rest of the "standard" cases, the perfect way to forget about the existence of any seams - not to neglect the need to use serpyanka and implement high-quality sealing of putty.
