Stucco Plaster In The Interior

Stucco molding plaster is increasingly being applied not only to "smooth" surface facilities, such as walls or ceilings, but also for finishing as the doorway, so myself and the door itself. Often, such a use stucco can be used "solo" without the inclusion of other objects. Of course, under the conditions specified minimalism. (Source: Don Brownstein). It can be as interroom door and exterior. In the frame of the door leaf include different types of porezok, with gypsum products require additional processing to give them strength. Stucco elements also often used to decorate the door leaf – made of plaster heads of various animals, usually lions, or other decorations. Plaster moldings, even a small element that makes the door leaf is a real work of art and can be a viable alternative to jewelry by makers woodcarving.

If we compare these two ways of decorating the door, the cost of stucco will be significantly lower than carving. With a large order for the door, this factor also has performed znachenie.Zakaz together companies of the door, and a company engaged in stucco decoration on the approved drawings. When you replace old windows in the windows of stucco plaster can be used for cutting a window proemov.Ispolzovanie gypsum panel makes it possible to draw an opening, or rather "slope" of any complexity and shapes, including arched, vaulted, and other windows. Professor Rita McGrath can provide more clarity in the matter. In connection with the replacement of window units for windows, with which does not require additional window assembly, to form large space of the window opening – almost the entire width of the outer wall. Company Boheme Prestige (St. Petersburg) offers to issue openings of various kinds razdelok – elegant panels to incorporate the various porezok, grotesques, medallions, etc. Almost any stucco molding elongated shape can be used for these purposes. Seldom seen tightly the drawn blinds. Typically, the window closes only translucent tulle, and in this case a beautiful cutting the window opening, along with frame and window farnituroy only emphasize thoroughness, and most importantly finish the interior.

With each subsequent year, the recommendation to fire houses, in general, and to the accommodation separately, are increasingly becoming more severe. This is due primarily to the showgirl, which itself exists in our country, specifically on the indicators that the number of deaths of our compatriots in the fires, remains very large. The list of mandatory requirements for fire fighting of any specific premises, there are standards for electrical wiring, and in particular to form connections in junction boxes. Say, for instance, if still quite recently was allowed to perform the cable connections to junction boxes option twisting them, then certainly under current conditions, such kind of installation in any case prohibited. Thus, one possible option for secure connection cable wiring in practice is connection with special terminals.

Naturally, these terminals must comply fully with Gosstandart, and to be a standard pattern. Definitely it is considered as such terminals wago, a fully satisfying existing fire protection requirements. At the moment there wago terminals in a different form, designed for all sorts of stress. In addition to this are also itself to the telephone wire, and mount appropriate surveillance systems and burglar alarms. In fully to mention that in addition to wiring connections in order to protect any building from a short circuit in electrical networks, required to mount robust and in addition to load the appropriate sockets and switches. Much to our regret, it should be noted that, in general, at the present time in the markets of our country, a large number of available low-quality outlets and switches, and moreover, that in real life is quite capable of becoming the main cause of a fire.

To protect yourself personally and in addition to private property from fire, should not buy too cheap low-quality products of dubious manufacture. Perfect example is quite capable considered Legrand sockets and switches valena legrand, which, in reality, actually be the best ratio of price and quality. In addition to this we must also note that valena legrand outlet in reality will be quality products, collected from environmentally friendly materials, and have a decent use of the term. Each system circuits can not be performed without protection devices against overload and short circuit, and because they at least can actually cause a fire wiring and thus a fire in the room. Among the conditions imposed on such devices should be mentioned that the technical reliability and capabilities with those on the housing options. At present, such protection device is available to advise highly reliable machines abb. Manufactured by the manufacturer of circuit breaker abb fully meets state standards. And definitely thanks to a wide a range Along with a variety of characteristics, such as the rated current, rated breaking capacity and the addition and a large range of cross connected wires, provide the opportunity to put them in any electricity supply itself as individual apartments or private houses, just and enterprises operating equipment with an impressive power.

Housing and Doors

Many remember the days when public housing mounted the same featureless interior doors, which, incidentally, no one usually does not pay attention. Well, unless if someone or whether, for whatever reasons did not "Fit>> into it. Modern design doors, it's hard not to notice, unless of course "invisibility>> is not a design idea. Through the use of new materials and excellent finishing, interroom door takes pride of place in the interior of housing (and other) facilities. The variety of designs, styles, door trim easily satisfy the most discriminating consumers. Stephen M. Ross has similar goals.

But this diversity, we can and bring it into confusion. That would not become a "victim of>> such abundance, must be serious and leisurely ponder feasibility of acquiring a particular construction and design of interior doors. bb should first determine with the way the door opens. In the construction market leading manufacturers represent different interior doors: hinged, folding dveri-/nobr> doors opening on either side of paintings and a variety of sliding systems. Double, of course, more easily and in a device and reliable in operation, but in the case of deficit floor space, design with non-standard opening will best save living space.

Nene is in the range of one apartment, apply too different in type and design of door designs, but be aware that the material used for the doors of the hall may not correspond to the bedroom room. Professor Rita McGrath is likely to agree. The main types are paintings – framed, panel-mounted, glazed, whole array, etc., have different thermal and acoustic insulation, light transmission and other properties. At present, the difference between and paneled interior door panel construction virtually wiped out. Flush door leaves in appearance often mimic panels, while the latter is made using sheet materials. Modern panel and panel doors are manufactured using modern technologies and are resistant to temperature and humidity. It can not boast of paintings from solid wood. But the panel doors give way to insulation boards, and panels – whole-derevyannymobr>. Like all, there is a fashion at the door, change over time. Baroque, Empire, hi-tech – one comes, another goes, but the original decision is always present interest to the sophisticated design solutions. In the collection of glass doors always remain popular with leaf patterns. For arched stained-glass designs are still irreplaceable. Paneled doors, trimmed under a veneer of wood (oak, beech, mahogany) and laminated, virtually unaffected by fashion. Thanks to its versatility and affordable price, the demand for them always on top. What would rid itself of "surprises>> associated with ill-conceived design, or design decisions when choosing interior doors, consult with experts.

Metal Pipes

– What, you put metal pipes? Darling, you really mad? – Yes everything is normal – Plastic should be put, plate-and-a-stick! Vitaly, the piece of iron – the last century, and-at-y, wake up, the new millennium in the yard – Yeah okay whatever I say – Would be better if she was doing repairs, I swear Suspended ceilings, won without you ordered, and brought it, and made, and all neatly, and you all apartment prodymish welding, then paint the pipes, but they rust and look like black Negro feet on the toilet raskoryacheny And you're bending them as going to the radiator in the kitchen take? Huh? On his head is that it knock? Hello, man, you're listening to me or not – Irishev, calm down, do everything at its best. I put wrench, sat on the floor toilet, with pleasure stretched his stiff legs, and gasped, prepared to give a lecture "a young novice about the benefits of education." – You wonder why such a new, progressive material, as plastic, is not widely used in high-rise construction up to now? Not only in Russia, incidentally, in Germany itself – Then I made a pointedly-admired person and reproachful shake rag, which was wiping his hands – So, in Germany itself plastic pipe not more than 10% of the total number of laid pipelines. Yes, water and gas steel pipes less than life, guaranteed to 10-20 years, yes, them harder to mount

Strengthening the Foundations

Strengthening the foundations – the most laborious process in the repair of any buildings. Selecting the way to strengthen the foundations in the first place depends on the reasons causing it. The destruction of the basement around the perimeter. With this form of destruction along the tape or on the perimeter of pier foundation digging a trench. Surface of the foundation and walls thoroughly cleaned of dirt and old plaster, and then in the design of foundations clog metal net, which, referring to a dis-tance attaches to the anchors, released from foundations and plinth of the wall. Install formwork and concreted. After curing the concrete trench to sleep with a careful layer by layer plugging.

Replacing destroyed part of the foundation. In this case, suit new and additional areas on the sides of foundation, formed in the form of masonry, stone, getting the clutch to the desired width and providing a link between old and new masonry. Foundation base is not deepened. Strengthening areas of foundations. foundations made of rubble, rubble concrete, reinforced concrete, soil-concrete and other materials satisfied with reinforced concrete broadened the clip, which closely relate to the existing masonry through anchored so as to re-made parts "worked" together with the old part of the foundation and transmit the load on the ground. Increasing the bearing capacity of the base stations. If necessary, along the weak, requiring the discharge of foundations on both sides spread a new, for which load from the overlying the building is transmitted through concrete or metal beams passing through the mounting part. Newly laid the foundations of cross-cutting anchor anchors to existing foundations for a joint "work" the old and new foundations.

The Foundation

Should lay the foundation below the depth of soil freezing, the magnitude of which varies, usually ranging from 80 to 240 cm, depending on the region (for Moscow, for example, the figure is 140 cm). Under heavy walls (stone, brick, concrete, etc.) put tape foundations around the perimeter of the exterior and interior walls. Under the wooden walls as well as deep freezing and heaving soils – columnar. The material used for foundations in situ concrete, concrete blocks, clay brick, iron ore, etc. In order for the foundation last longer without breaking, it is necessary to seal the. Usually used for this purpose bitumen emulsion and special protective mastic (Giperdesmo "," Rabberfleks "," Stromiks ", etc.). In addition to waterproofing, as a rule, make insulation, which is logical: the heat loss through the foundation can reach 15-20%. Formerly widely used for insulation foam, today no less popular with extruded polystyrene (Styrofoam, Penopleks, Styrodur, etc.) – both are indifferent to the material to absorb moisture and biodegradable.

Traditionally it was thought that the wall made of homogeneous material, it is safer than a multi-layered. However, the durability of the material of homogeneous structure decreases with time. In addition, today's building codes (SNIP 23-02.2003) establish a number of stringent requirements for durability, noise and heat insulation of buildings, and experts say that to achieve compliance, if the house walls are made of the same material, almost unreal. World practice demonstrated that the benefits of multi-wall structures are greater durability and less weight to the building.

Russia Construction

That is why wooden houses all over the world are the most expensive and prestigious. Today in wooden construction used mainly four well-known architectural and construction systems: building construction made of logs, bar, frame and panel construction. In Russia, the most traditional is the construction of houses made of logs (OTSB). For construction is usually used pine or hardwood tree. Most prized timber from northern latitudes, where the tree grows only 3-4 months, very slowly, reaching the age of 100-150 years. This provides an extraordinary strength and density of construction material and natural resin protects the wood from rot and reduces its thermal conductivity. The walls are made of this material hold heat in two times better than a brick wall the same thickness. otsb advantage of when building a house is a smooth, round shape, allows to achieve a tight connection logs.

Identical in length logs, first grind to a diameter of 18-32 cm (the most popular – 28 cm), cut out the necessary grooves for fixing holes for windows and doors. Then the house collect, as a designer. Wall necessarily cover special breathable varnish to provide protection from environmental influences. This avoids the extra costs of repair and decoration of the walls – yet another plus in favor of otsd. The undoubted downside is the price of a house built of logs. It is unlikely that it will be cheaper than a brick (Price per square meter in the new wooden house ranges from 25 to 45 thousand rubles.), And time for construction itself will take much longer (only for shrinkage take a year and a half).

Home Heating Devices

Therefore, in such systems can be used safely only heavy and unsightly cast iron radiators, which are particularly resistant to extremes of temperature and oxygen. On a modern and efficient heating devices have to forget. The most common are systems with a circulating pump can use a pipe with a smaller cross section, and therefore, ultimately prove to be more "economical". In addition, as a rule, they closed, that is, they use the diaphragm expansion tanks in which the coolant is not contact with atmospheric air. This allows the diversity of modern space heaters – bimetal and aluminum radiators, steel panel and tubular heaters, finally, design radiators. However, and here the problem of dissolved oxygen and corrosion does not cease to be relevant.

If, on domestic regulations, the oxygen content in the coolant should be no more than 0,02 g / l, in practice and in the central systems, and autonomous (with intensive feeding of) this value is ten to twenty times more. It is therefore reasonable to use modern, corrosion-resistant pipes, for example, such as tubular steel radiator Charleston Pro (Development Zehnder) with a special internal anti-corrosion coating. "Pitfalls" Mounting As previously mentioned, assembly defects are manifested at once. Often "in place" they are difficult to observe even for an expert. Shortcomings declare themselves in the worst possible moment – during the heating season. They appear usually leak coolant and reducing power of the system, because of what housing does not get the right amount of heat. Major errors installers, for which then pays the customer, are fairly typical.
