When repairing the upper surface of all areas begin to think about the markup.And how to mark up a drywall ceiling will be discussed in this article.
It's not as simple a question as it might seem at first glance.Improper application may be distorted the whole geometry of the plane and the work will come to nothing.
Here you can view photos and videos on the subject.It is possible to do all the work his hands and without resorting to outside help, thus reducing the cost of the assembly.
What is marking
This meticulous work that is worth doing right.
Let's think about why it is needed, counting:
- most basic, this is perhaps the definition of the proper level of finding all of drywall constructions.Generally, any ceiling begins with markings, on the correct implementation will depend on the final result.
on it and placed the entire plane, and it will be fixed the other elements. If you have any biases, then take more materials in alignment, and it costs.
In some cases it will be impossible to correct the mistake;
- second objective of this work is the application of parallel lines, which will be attached the material.If you are installing ceiling drywall, size coating lines must comply with the sheet.
We can not allow their connection to weight.Joining all the elements allowed only in the profile.
That is, thanks to the correct layout, you can fairly accurately estimate and the amount of material that will be required for the conduct of operations.
From the above, we need to make two markings.First, the contour of the frame on the walls of the entire room, and the second is on the plane of the ceiling, which will be attached profile.
Especially during installation it should be in the same plane.
Marking spirit level
marking the ceiling of plasterboard can be performed using a water level.I do wonder, when we say that we should apply the laser level.
And just imagine how you have to buy an expensive tool, and then try to install it in the kitchen at six squares.This is ridiculous.
Another is to say that they should be able to use, too.Therefore, this article will be shown how the markup that are not expensive and are therefore available to anyone.Hydraulic
level just meets these parameters.
- With this tool, you can easily set the level of attachment of the main profile.After that, fight off the line to set the framework.
This element is in retail.If you have not found, then there is an opportunity to make it quite quickly.
This will require the easiest rubber hose, which watered the garden.Its length should be one meter ahead diagonally premises.
Thereafter pharmacy purchase two glass tubes, which must fit snugly into the ends of the hose.Insert them, and the level is ready.
After this is just pour it very plain water through the funnel;
- this level of controls at least two people .Once you have set the desired mark on the wall, one of the people taking their end of the level.
and expenditure in different corners of the room;
- Stamp and each glass tube.Hold the phone to the risk and apply;
- second person moves the tube up and down near the opposite wall.As water will be exactly carried out the line at this point and the mark is applied on the other wall;
Note: It is better before are located at different corners of the room, close the holes in the tubes.Otherwise, the water drops will start from just pour.
opens only after when the ends of the hose are roughly in the same plane.
- After transferring the desired mark on the surface of the other walls, they should be connected, and this is done with the help of cord yarn. level just bounces and we have a straight line around the perimeter of the room, which will be located and the frame;
most important thing in this matter, just need to know how high the ceiling should be placed.Before starting work, clearly, imagine that you want to hide under it, and whether or not to mount a heater.
After installation of the frame can not be changed.We'll have to do all the work on the new.
markup using a spirit level
There are also options that will help make the correct markings and normal building level.The truth must be said that one has only to apply the long, about two meters.
Though they admit the error, but it will be acceptable over short distances.
- Put a one edge of the level to the point where you want to navigate:
- other end lift while air point level will not work exactly in the middle, and at this point put a mark on the wall.
Once again I say, this method can only be used over short distances.He gives his error, but that is not acceptable on a large plane.
marking a basic profile
This markup without significance and size of the ceiling drywall.We need to hold parallel lines on the ground plane ceiling.
should be remembered that it is necessary to perform this work accurately.The edges of the sheets must be connected to it in the profile (see: How do fasten drywall to the ceiling), the markup for fixture which, we are now going to do.
look at the figure, which is shown above, and do.
Note: Dimensions drywall ceiling can be different, but one should take into account the principle.
edge of the sheet should take place in the middle of the profile.In the middle of the sheet must pass profile
- Spending counting on two opposite walls.Measure out the desired distance;
- Becoming together on both sides of the room.We put the thread and repel the line, as shown above.
When marking the ceiling should consider the option when you plan to apply two or more levels.Then different levels should be celebrated in different ways.
Use different colors or dotted lines.Then you will not go wrong with the device ceiling.
Here we do not give specific dimensions.Standard shown.Just
size ceiling drywall may be different, often have to cut the sheets and they have quite a different length.The principles we set out.
Instruction on marking set out.The price of the material is not as high, and if you still do the job yourself, it will significantly reduce the cost of the entire structure.
