This concept has come into our life together with the restructuring, when the Russian market came to quality imported materials and technology, as well as understanding (correct) that? Renovation? – Is necessarily white walls, application of gypsum board, white ceiling, with Italian sanitary ware and built-in lighting system. In fact, newly refurbished – is a whole range of works to change the office or apartment. Any renovation begins design and make the individual design project. And then a team of professionals already working on this project, strictly adhering to the schedule and being under the constant control of the designer. Quite often, rather often, even, for euro-repair is redevelopment of premises: increased kitchen area (if designed kitchen and dining room), living room, bathroom, loggia and possible association rooms. During the repair crew will be working use various tools for building power tools.

So in an apartment or office to settle some time with the amazing cars names: grinding machine, pipe cutter for steel, plastic or copper bender. Renovation – quality and reliability: the walls and ceiling will be aligned perfectly, the corners will be absolutely straight and with a minimum gap will be performed docking and finishing materials. Usually occurs in western renovation replacement of electrical, ventilation, plumbing, underfloor heating device, windows, doors and tiles. And as a mandatory article – removal of debris and evrouborka, which would require cleaner makita karcher, leaders in the field of cleaning. Thus, renovation – repairing it for a specific family, this repair is a specific apartment, this apartment should be, first, unique, and, secondly, the beloved and intimate.

In order to determine the choice of solutions for home insulation is necessary to analyze exactly how the house is losing heat. The choice of solution depends on the design features, materials used in construction. The figure below illustrates the average% of "participation" in various parts of the house heat loss. As you can see from the figure, most attention should be paid the walls and roof of the house, then – the water and sanitation sector, then windows and doors. As a rule, Ukrainian private developers a lot of attention devoted to the walls: very often it is a ceramic brick with good resistance to heat transfer, foam and gas-concrete, less wooden beams. Such designs do not require additional insulation.

Problem option – when the house is built of sand-lime bricks, concrete blocks or wooden plank is the design. Of course, in this case, without insulation is necessary. Warming of the roof. As a rule, you need all the houses where the tenants are planning to use in winter to heat the space under the roof – mansard. If it is vented attic, insulation be overlap between the attic floor and operated. Windows and doors. Of course, in principle, these parts of the house can be warmed further (eg obbiv Colour Options vatinovoy with gasket), but is rather a caprice owner. As a rule, replace the doors and windows, installing a more modern energy efficient model.

What to look for when choosing windows: the number of cameras and special energy-saving installation in the profile, number of cameras in the pane, the presence of membranes, "thermal mirror". Typically, the thermal resistance of windows 3-10 times less than the same figure for the walls, so when a large area of glazing is to choose the best supply market: five-chamber profile and double-glass with a thermal mirror. When choosing the doors need to pay attention to the fit of the box and the door leaf, the presence of gasket and insulation inside the door.

Building Homes Of Sandwich Panels

cat September 22nd, 2014 by Virtual Keeper

Anyone who wants to build the world a comfortable place to rest from his country house. Enjoying wonderful views of the garden, eating fresh and tasty fruit garden. But first, the most important factor is determine the location of land to build a country house. As usual, people dream of seeing their country house in a posh villa, where you can invite your friends, acquaintances or relatives to mark a holiday or just a break from the bustle of the city. And then you come to the first stage at which, dreams are transferred to paper creating a plan for a future home. And usually at this stage there is a huge number of complexities that require a very large expense. If you decide to build a brick or concrete building, the cost for this construction is very expensive for banging, LLC Dawn offers sandwich panels at very competitive prices.

Therefore, building a country house made of this material may be deposited in another year, maybe more. In addition to the problems of the construction can still join such as interior space, installation of heating, electrical network and the dream of building can be quickly abyss, as they appeared. In place of the long building made of brick or concrete appeared Technology construction of sandwich panels with which the erection of any building type possessed great speed at the lowest cost. A related site: Peter Thiel mentions similar findings. With the sandwich panels are erected various cafes, gyms, shopping malls and etc. Also, using this material can be a very short time to build a full-fledged cottage or a small villa for relaxation and gardening. Built houses of sandwich panels do not require the construction of a powerful and time-consuming foundation, even with all its powerful appearance in the design has very low weight. Therefore, for the construction would be enough to create the foundation of chairs in shallow water.

Painting Walls

cat July 24th, 2014 by Virtual Keeper

Preparation for painting before painting the walls need to close all the furniture and floor with foil or newspaper in order that they can not hit the paint. Then remove all the sockets and switches, remove the baseboards. The next step – is to prepare the surface on which we will apply the paint. Walls should be clean and dry, have a sufficient bearing capacity. If there is loose on the walls of plaster, it should be removed. To check the surface can be use a damp cloth dark. If there are traces of chalk, should be primed base. Porous surfaces should be abrasive and primed deep penetration.

Porosity can be check roller or sponge soaked when water soaks into the ground, a must-priming. Putty before priming should all cracks and irregularities. Primer is applied copiously on the surface, mostly flat by brush or roller. Painting the walls in the first brush painted ledges, corners and various architectural details. For painting flat areas of the walls using a roller.

To paint was applied evenly before applying the roller to hold a paintbrush on the board to remove excess paint. The first coat of paint is applied slightly diluted. The next layer is applied will not dilute the paint and in the longitudinal towards the walls. Then again, a cover layer in the transverse direction, and then again lengthwise. To make the surface of individual character, you can use different tools and how to create decorative elements. Upon completion, paint tool should be rinsed under running water.

English window – a window with single glazing, which opens a show frame vertically up and fixing it in position. A typical window has an English cover of medium-sized squares. Balcony door unit – translucent structure that consists of a box and the door leaf (or blades) with glazing. Stained Glass – an ornamental or decorative composition plot of glass or other material that is impervious to light. Stained glass windows in window openings create a play of light in a room and influence the expressiveness of the interior.

Also in the building practice called continuous stained glass windows of the facade or substantial part thereof. Gas filling – filling space between the panes of insulating glass different types of gases to give a glass of high thermal and acoustic insulation properties. Blanking shutter (Glazing deaf) – Design window or the window rigidly fixed in the box with no opening mechanism. Laths – decorative profiles to create falshperepleta. Profiles glued to the windows on both sides – outside and inside. Wooden Eurowindows – window glazing with single-or triple-pane windows.

Negluhie sash may be turning, folding or swing-opening mechanism. Wooden euro-windows without panes typically produce. A wooden box is a structure consisting of a window box and shutters – mobile, fixed or both. Sometimes the design is split into impost. Remote Frame – slim frame, manufactured from aluminum or galvanized steel (less plastic) and connecting the glass pane. Remote frame holds a hollow, and the desiccant is placed inside it. Soundproofing – the ability to reduce the window construction the level of street noise in the room. Achieved through the use of glass with air or gas filling. Impost – the element window assembly, which is a horizontal or a vertical bar and used to break the window design on the side. In bivalve windows impostnaya system ensures the independence of the valves of each other, unlike bezympostnoy system, where valve arrangements with opening-closing locks and the second one.

Welding film – is the basic approach of polyethylene compounds. Welding of PVC – a technology for permanent connection with diffusion bonding or chemical welding of geomembranes, resulting in a junction between the joined surfaces of polyethylene film disappears and turns the transition from one part to another. Plastic film is characterized by high heat and very low thermal conductivity. Therefore, welding of polyethylene the film is carried out at temperatures at which the plastic film is a plastic. The quality of the seam, which is obtained by plastic welding, depending on its composition, conditions of the welding process. Of large amount of welding of polyethylene is most often used is the thermal contact welding.

Contact-welding heat – it's fairly simple and low-cost method, which ensures a fairly high characteristics of compounds of polyethylene films. At the moment, the most common and well-welded contact and heat welding are PP (polypropylene), LDPE (low-pressure polyethylene), LDPE (polyethylene high blood pressure). These materials are characterized by relatively low temperature fluidity (125-170 C), a large temperature range of visco-fluid state (above 55 C), a rather low melt viscosity. Therefore, HDPE, PP, LDPE refer to polymers that are well welded. When welding PVC heater could come into contact with the inner surfaces as well as with external (fusion welding and weld penetration, respectively). Welding geomembrane thickness of 150 microns is obtained by the best technology, supply of thermal energy from one side. Welding of the film pressure of 25-100 microns thick film takes place at about 210 C and the tool length contact 0, 5-0, 6 seconds. Welding of low pressure polypropylene film thickness of 25-100 microns is conducted at a temperature of 240 C and a tool contact time 0, 55-0, 68 seconds. Welding of polyethylene film thickness of 25-100 microns is carried out at tool temperature 240 C and a contact time of 0, 6-0, 75 seconds.

White Paints

cat January 3rd, 2012 by Virtual Keeper

And to get the ideal of whiteness, it appears, was added crushed marble. Talking about whiteness. You can develop a whole theory, based on fabrications old Freud. In his view, the driving force behind our every action is the energy of our libido. So it turns out that periodic maintenance, discharge of the accumulated frustration and aggressiveness of us, and the white ceiling – a symbol of purity and the "new leaf" in life. Hence the conclusion: do repairs and Beli ceilings regularly – good help. In principle, the glue wash chalky foundation remains the same.

But now, new paint specifically for ceilings with different components. All of them are usually based on acrylic dispersion and diluent is water. Refers to acrylic paints, which are also called water-based, it's the same thing. What is a water-dispersion paint? The main components of such coatings, aqueous "solution" polymers (in modern paints is mostly synthetic latex). He forms a protective film. In the traditional paints are film-forming systems, varnishes, dissolved in organic solvents.

An important component of paint – pigment, adding: "they are responsible" for the quality of color, opacity, durability and protective properties. The main pigment of waterborne paints – titanium dioxide – is absolutely harmless component. Today, the domestic pigment such quality that no company can risk using "our" titanium dioxide to produce their colors. Recently developed fillers (especially for the colors of the type) on the basis of kaolin, silica, talc, and mica. This is necessary in order to improve the coverage of paint (the ability to completely paint over the previous coverage). Fillers were mixed with titanium dioxide and more to your ceilings withstand the impact element (for example, not "floated" and not cracked after the flooding of the apartment. For the "stability" in the paint added dispersants, emulsifiers, defoamers, they and help make coverage perfectly smooth and free of defects.

Most people believe that the finishing work – a lot of very professional. Others thought that the dust and dirt associated with the repair work against their intelligent nature. But from the third hand is not really there are growing or they are just busy with more important matters, such as such as earning money. This is all very well, but will not be a master of carefully and meticulously to approach every inch of your apartment space as you can make yourself by investing in this process all my love and soul. Some people will not begin to repair their own hands simply because they do not have enough knowledge, but it's all fixable. Take, for example, ceiling of plasterboard on the Internet, there are many articles and video tutorials, lots of kinds of instructions on how to properly collect plasterboard ceiling with his hands. You only need one thing from all this set of information to choose a grain of truth, to decide your desired material and power tools, and begin to repair their own hands. It's so easy.

Any suspended ceiling consists of a frame and cladding. Frame consist of directly guiding and supporting elements. Guide elements define the shape of your ceiling, and take on the load-bearing and uniformly on all hanger raspredeoyayut all load and weight of the ceiling. Boarding the ceiling may be different. Sheathing may serve various types of plastic decorative panels, or simply frame sheathed with plasterboard sheet.

It seems at first glance, the ceiling of Drywall is not that difficult to do with their hands. Sheets of drywall with screws attached to a frame of metal profiles for gypsum board. Significantly easier for you to Rabat knowledge of the materials, there is in mind not only knowledge of the material from which it is mounted ceiling of plasterboard, but knowing where and under what conditions should apply this or that element of design. And, of course, knowledge of tools. The better crop metal profile? Of course, scissors, metal will answer you. As for me, for cutting profiles best fit the so-called angle grinders machine – Bulgarian. Unlike scissors, it is not the oppression of the edge profile and cut much faster. Thus, having at its disposal some knowledge of working with elements of the frame, mounting the ceiling with his hands could even become an exciting adventure. After all, suspended ceiling is only constructor, and its capabilities are limited only by your imagination, here you can realize your most ambitious designs. You can create multi-tiered masterpieces of the drywall ceiling, applying it to highlight the most a variety of lighting fixtures. The design of the ceiling plasterboard will hide the pipes, all kinds of electrical communication, ventilation, and hide all the flaws of the existing ceiling in the room.

The Glass

In the manufacture of MDF does not use toxic substances (epoxy resin or phenol), so they can be safely attributed to the eco-friendly materials. Of course, compared to natural stone or granite is not as practical MDF, but its moisture resistance, resistance to wear and resistance to fungus and micro-organisms is much higher than those same parameters for wood. If necessary, kitchen apron made of MDF can be easily replaced, but not for assembly must be carefully align the wall, as it is attached to the frame with special brackets klyaymerov (A simpler version – stick to the wall panel on "liquid nails"). Finished apron gives this fancy baseboards, moldings and folding corners to hide inside or outside corners. In aprons made of MDF only one drawback – high combustibility, so to use it in the kitchen with a gas stove is not desirable. The exception – one of the latest developments on the basis of MDP, a kind of composite material, where the laminated board 16 mm thick finished with a thin (0.8 mm) sheet of decorative stainless steel. This technology greatly improves the performance of the MDF, increases fire safety apron and facilitates care for him.

But in making material is complicated, so for now that is rare and quite expensive. Give the kitchen a modern look individuality can, using as a kitchen apron glass, but not easy, but tempered, subjected to heat treatment at high temperature (660-740 degrees) and then quenching. Resistance to shocks in the tempered glass is several times greater than normal, but if you do manage to price it to split the enormous effort, the glass will crumble at the smooth small splinters, not injuring people. Glass is easy to clean apron, he does not scratch, does not tarnish the time, is not afraid of chemical exposure and temperature changes near an open flame. For such a wall apron are fixed through pre-drilled holes with special dowels with decorative caps, selected in accordance with the overall design of the room. Between the glass wall of an apron and you can set the backlight to put fotoprinty, pictures or a collage of family recipes. For clear glass looks impressive old brickwork, carefully peeled from the plaster. And if you do not want to align, and decorate a wall, you can use patterned or opaque frosted glass.

QFT perfectly proved to be the construction of nonresidential buildings, including office buildings, schools, churches, shopping centers and public buildings. They are especially profitable when client, designer and contractor willing to obtain optimum strength, comfort, durability and efficiency. Tests were carried out from the wall thickness of 11 cm KTP, and results were compared with results of conventional tests wooden walls. Thus, the insulating properties of the walls of the CFT is higher than that of thicker timbered walls. The tests, which funded the Association of quantum field theory, showed that the attachment plates is not subcooling sections. This differs from the wooden walls of QFT, where it is found during verification, every nail creates a cold spot.

The advantage of QFT is that they almost completely eliminate subcooling sections, thus creating more comfortable conditions for life. KTP were tested for structural integrity and fire resistance required by building codes. Load testing included transverse and vertical compression and test shear stress. Check the fire consisted of a fire in a corner room and the fire load. KTP has a thick middle of a durable insulating foam which is resistant against insects.

Treatment for insects is a patented process in which polystyrene foam is added directly to a natural mineral, called to deter insects. Expanded polystyrene does not contain freon or formaldehyde. He inert, has no nutritional value, and is very durable. Thus, this environmentally friendly material. QFT in the construction of structurally insulated panels are widely used for mass construction of affordable housing in cities and rural areas. With the use of universal light structures, erected in large numbers quickly pays for commercial facilities, including hotels, shops, restaurants, offices, industrial and agricultural buildings that have high functional and aesthetic characteristics. New construction technology has been successfully used for the rapid construction of comfortable and cheap houses for the displaced, local effects of disasters, camps, military barracks, and many other prefabricated buildings of light construction. Lightweight design allows to build a building on the foundations of small-scale occurrence, which gives additional savings in cost and time of construction. Structurally insulated panels – is an advanced type of wood-frame housing, which has been recognized and certified CIS. In the coming years modular sandwich panels will be the most common material in low-rise construction. They passed thousands of tests in different countries, whose results have proved convincingly that this is efficient building system in the world. So, build a house using a technology QFT sparingly, but to live in the house of QFT comfortable and convenient. In such a house in the most severe frosts heat, and cool in summer heat. To warm a house in cold winter, enough 2-3 hours of heating system, at a cost of thermal energy – several times less than in the homes of materials such as brick, concrete, timber etc.
