The Foundation

This problem is also solved with the help of modern technology. For example, gradually spread to Russia screw bases and in Specifically, the German company krinner developed technology that allows to do all the work for just one day. With a special electric drill foundation, like the screws are screwed into the ground. Next, stand design is inserted into the cavity of the foundation, align at right angles and fixed with bolts and gravel. Perform this work at any time of year and weather conditions. Concrete walls help is widely used in the construction of the walls of the modern home. But it is not usual, and the so-called easy: aerated concrete, foam, polystyrene. Features such materials – low density and high porosity, which reaches up to 80%.

To obtain these figures pores of a chemical way (solution swells with gas additives like yeast) or physical-mechanical (the solution was stirred with foam). This not only reduces the mass of material, but also increases its heat-shielding properties, reduced construction costs. According to Gregory of , a professor of construction materials mssu, the use of lightweight concrete can reduce construction costs by 10-20%, labor costs – by 25-30% 1. The modification also affected the traditional material such as a tree: in our country is built more houses from glued profiled beam. For its production logs sawn into boards (slats) that in the drying cameras are brought to a relative humidity of 6-10% and then processed retardants and preservatives. After that slats are glued together by the overlap of 3-6 units per block.

Glued Laminated Timber

If you choose wood material for her new home, before you select a specific wall material, we suggest you compare the two options. It profiled bar, dried to a moisture content of 18-20% and normal laminated veneer lumber. Peter Thiel: the source for more info. First of all, find out why dried and glued timber. It turns out to give it greater strength, minimal exposure to strain and shrinkage. Glued laminated timber has a moisture content 11-14% and, therefore, not shrinks and is not gives the cracks.

Dry profiled bar, dried our special technology, has a uniform final moisture content throughout the volume of timber – 18-20%. The remaining advantages of these materials is that the walls of the house will not only have the original appearance, but also absent is necessary in the subsequent finishing. Compared with other materials, laminated veneer lumber and dry shaped beam has a higher mechanical strength, resistance to decay. Need noted that the laminated board in the finished product after a certain period of time gaining moisture from the environment to chtremyas thus the equilibrium of 18-20% that of the dry-profiled bar. The undoubted advantages of the laminated board can be attributed, and that it can be up to 18 m in length (for comparison: the maximum length of regular shaped timber – 6 m), although in practice very rarely used material of this size. When assistance of competent design solutions can easily avoid the use of long workpieces. Assembling such a house is greatly simplified due to the smaller number of assembly parts.
