Many home owners there is a question of repair and tiling.In this article, we describe how to glue the ceiling tiles in the whitewash.This question often arises during the repair in the living room or office.In many cases, it prevents a whitewashing should be removed.
Vendors will tell you a lot about how pokleit ceiling tile on the whitewash, using these or other mixtures for the operation.And they will claim that their product is quite suitable for the job, and it passes through the whitewash, and perfectly holds the tiles.
I was, frankly, surprised by people who believe in it.Just a question: "If I buy a glue or a mixture and stir just 50:50 chalk , tiles, too, will stay?".After all, when the adhesive is applied to the ceiling and pressed tiles, adhesives and whitewash ratio will roughly in half, and even if it will stick, then how much will stay.
therefore decided to tell you how to glue the ceiling tiles in the whitewash.
Let's start with the fact that the ceiling tile
This work is a standard set of tools.We need to clean the ceiling and check the level.Our buildings can often be seen not alignment of the ceiling and the floor, which may be several centimeters.
To clarify this is best suited hydraulic level, which can be purchased at the store or do it yourself.
Now we'll show you how to stick the tiles on the ceiling whitewash, whitewash just need to remove.Many are beginning to wash it, but it will be a little bit wrong.Water dissolves whitewash and in contact with other surfaces strongly eats into them, then it is very difficult to wash.
- should simply take the container with clean water and with a brush or roller to wet the surface of the ceiling;
- We wait twenty minutes.During this time, whitewashing nourish themselves with moisture and become heavier.Begins to lag slightly from the surface;
- Take a trowel and holding it to the ceiling, cut ribbons coat of whitewash;
- If the ceiling has a sink, then there will be whitewashed.These parts should be cleaned using the same spatula.
If we do not align the ceiling tiles to be laid on the wall is not suitable for laying the length and disturbed pattern.
- With hydraulic level is the lowest corner of the room and put a pencil mark.This will be the level of our ceiling;
- applied to make a mark one end of the hydraulic level, and the second tray to the other wall.Make a mark on all the walls with a pencil or marker;
- mark Putting together by a straight rail.We will line the ceiling around the perimeter of the room.
Now look at the period from the ceiling to the line.If it is about 5 mm , for its elimination will require a layer of putty.If this gap is up to 1 cm. , putty should be applied in conjunction with the building grid.
If more is better to use in the lining of the drywall sheets.
consider leveling system with thick layer up to 1 cm .
- Take the dry mixture and poured into the container.For these purposes, it is best suited bucket.It is convenient to carry out kneading, using a drill and mixing nozzle;
- Add the water and mix at the same time.We bring the mixture to a thick sour cream;
- With spatula apply a layer of putty to the ceiling about 3 mm;
- We put the net and pressed.It sticks using putty.At the same time hold on the top with a spatula and flatten the tread mixture;
- We are waiting for twenty minutes, until the mixture sets.Then we go through another layer of putty on the ceiling.So we do to complete alignment;
- After applying the last layer, Bele wide spatula, about 70 cm and extend the entire plane.Make the final alignment.
work can be done with one «The start» .If you will remain small sink, it's not scary.They will be closed when laying tile and fill with mixture.
Choosing tile for ceiling
Today's market is filled with elements for finishing the ceiling.There are many types and configurations of these products.
But in fact, there are three types of them:
- Extruded , is very thin and durable.It consists of polystyrene strips that are pressed.The front surface is covered with a protective film.It provides a free cleaning of the surface from contamination, you can even handle the cleaning agents;
- Injection , foam is applied thicker.With proper installation possible seamless fixation;
- Stamped , it is less practical and cheap tiles.It has a protective layer and is fairly brittle material.It can not be washed, the more use of cleaning agents can only be cleaned with a damp cloth.
to the final elements of the ceiling finish should include the plinth.That there are different lengths and shapes.It has a different design of the front.
for the correctness of masonry, you must first perform the layout plane.This gives us the ability to properly accommodate the design.At the same time, determine the location of a pattern (if any).When installing the note at the intersection of pattern tiles to the wall should be the same on both sides.
- marks the center of the sides of the ceiling and connect them to a straight line using the rail.This is what we've found the center of the plane.Here we need to check the alignment of the corners of the room.This can be done with yarn.We measure the diagonal corners of the room.If it does not match a bit, laying tile at the end of it will not be the same.You can fix the skirting board, which exists of different widths;
- After the lines we have a ceiling, which is divided into four equal parts.From the center, and not place the tile in different directions.
If you plan to make the last number of a different color or tile view.Initially, then you should perform the laying of this series.And then perform the installation of the central part.
Just junction of two different colors or types of tiles will be very evident.It should therefore be ideal.
Fasten the tiles on the ceiling
Once the correct partitioning plane can begin the installation of tiles.If you have an ideal ceiling mounting can be carried out using an adhesive.If there is a slight difference, it is necessary to align the tiles with a dry mixture.
- First, sort the tiles.It is not always perfectly flat.Spread it into three piles: the smallest size, medium and large.Typically, the average size is obtained most.Making cutting elements with a knife, make a simple one size throughout the material;
- Apply glue to the four corners of the element.If the tiles are large, you should put glue in the center of the element.We put in the center of the ceiling tile and carefully combine it with hand lines conducted.Speaking on the edge of the tile adhesive should be immediately removed using a cloth;
- After pressing, the tiles should hold a few minutes.During this time the adhesive sets, and the element will not disappear under the influence of its own weight.But not everyone wants to keep.You can immediately after applying the adhesive does not attach, and wait until the glue grabs a little under the influence of air and then we mount;
- When pressed against the tiles to the ceiling, be careful.May remain on the surface indentations of the hands.Some of this is used for a wide wooden bar.By pressing a large plane dents remains.Until the glue hardens, you can slightly change the position of the tile;
- Thus, as described above, fixation is done by another tile drawn line.It will be executed first row.According to his location and will be laying across the ceiling.It should not allow displacement of the element in the first row with respect to each other;
- the same way and executed by laying the next series, according to the markings made.When checking the correctness of the form of tiles laying process will be carried out quite simply.When laying the material should be tightly pressed against the surface.
- Sometimes the base of the ceiling may not give to do so.In these cases, ordinary pins.Which, in the period setting, you can assign two tiles together, these provide a perfect seal;
- In most cases, the last tile in a row does not fit.In this case, it should be cut to the desired size using a knife.In a preliminary calculation to properly calculate the last series, they look better when the tiles are given the same length;
- pruning knife follow the elements of line, do the cutting perfectly flat.The joint between the ceiling tile and the last hidden skirting;
- Sometimes there is not much correct geometry ceiling.Joints between the tiles may remain slits which subsequently must be removed by means of reinforced sealant.Only this method is suitable for normal tiles and laminated to none.Later, if you decide to paint the ceiling latex paint, these joints completely disappear.Some simply do whitewash the ceiling.Just many are interested in how to whitewash the ceiling tile, this is done using a roller or compressor;
- important moment in the process of laying is the output of the electric wires through the tile.To accomplish this task should be carefully Gaugeable point output wires.Make a hole in the tile with a knife or a cutter.To install the wires, disconnect the lighting and remove the cartridge.Carry out the wire through the tile and tightly glued structural element.Then put the cartridge in place.Do not carry out work with the lights on.Clay is a conductor of electricity.You should not risk your life.
- After the installation of all the elements to be attached plinth.For this right to kill him.Attach the plinth to the corner of the ceiling and wall otchertite line.On another wall, do the same.You get the point of intersection of two lines.This is where stabbed plinth.Attach element to the wall and put it on the point of intersection of the lines on the ceiling.When using a knife to slaughter the corner baseboard for docking.
- Repeat with the other skirting the same as in the first wall.This will ensure a perfect angle joint.
making the ceiling installation of this type, it must be remembered that this material is poorly flammable, but deformed even at 80 degrees .The lamp is installed at a minimum distance of 20 cm from the ceiling.
Practice shows that pipe with hot water is not heated to a temperature .Therefore, in this sense can feel safe.
I hope you realize that the ceiling tiles in the whitewash is not fixed.If you accurately perform mounting technology, the ceiling will serve you for years to come.
