Use drywall for leveling walls. It is used in this case when the surface of the walls has many very noticeable defects, which will be very difficult to eliminate in the usual ways - it will cost too expensive and take a lot of time. Gypsum cardboard can easily hide all the shortcomings of the wall, while it, as well as a plastered surface, can be easily poured with wallpaper or painted.
The leveling of the walls with drywall is carried out in two main ways. The drywall sheets can be fixed on the wall, using a special frame pre -installed on it, or using special glue.
The frame for the installation of drywall is made of a metal profile or wooden beams. Moreover, it is preferable to choose the first option, since wooden structures are less stable. For the frame, two types of profiles are needed - guide and rack. Among the tools for work, you must have a square and level.
The guide profile is mounted horizontally, it is attached to the ceiling and floor. Installation starts from the ceiling. Then, a rack -bearing is mounted on the guide profile, while the step between its individual elements should be about sixty centimeters. Throughout the installation, control over the level of evenness is required, for this they use the appropriate tool.
After installing the frame, you can proceed to the installation of drywall panels. Gypsum cardboard material is fragile. Therefore, this part of the finishing work must be carried out very carefully. Before installation, the sheets will need to be cut, giving them the desired size.
The second method of finishing with drywall is to glue its sheets directly to the wall surface, without the use of a special frame. The adhesive mixture for this is made immediately before use, directly at the construction site. To do this, the water is mixed with a dry part of the composition, which is first poured into a working tank.
Bringing the mixture to the desired consistency, and stirring carefully, it is applied to the back of the drywall sheets. Then the sheet is applied to the wall, and it is well pressed to it and carefully tapped - there should be no gaps between the wall and the sheet.
When all sheets are fixed, you need to put the places of their joints. If the installation is made on the frame, you need to stick the places where the hats of the screws are visible, and completely disagree the surface. erotic bodyrub
