Skirting around the perimeter of the ceiling - is the finishing touch that gives integrity of finishing top of the room.The item is designed to ensure completeness and aesthetic appearance, as well as close the technological gaps that leave specifically for thermal expansion of the finishing materials.Element easy to install, but for some reason on the corner joints of his beautiful issue is not that at all.The question arises: how to cut corners on moldings correctly, and the first time?
Nothing complicated in this process there, just need to carefully vymeryat parts comply with the technology and use good tools.We'll show you how to cut corners on moldings accurate, fast and beautiful.
We are not talking about the wooden products, although for them this technology it is applied.
Modern materials are made of:
- expanded polystyrene;
- Less - from compressed wood chips;
- Even more rarely - in solid wood;
- and similar materials.
Their low cost, light weight, ease of installation provided the immense popularity and demand, the more so for the professionals do not need to call, you can do everything with their hands.But the stumbling block is the joints are at an angle that non-specialists uneven, loose and, to put it mildly, curves.
How to cut the corner ceiling moldings - a problem most of the "diy".Let's solve the problem.
Let's start with the material
Plinth, including the ceiling - a linear profile, which in cross section a complicated configuration (see. Art. "How to glue the ceiling moldings stretch ceilings yourself").Today rarely produce flat profiles, it is banal and diverse.Typically, the porous structure of the material, so the cuts should be done gently, never use a hacksaw blade that has large teeth.It's just a "break off" structure, smooth cutting line will not succeed.With tree work easier in this respect, but then the knife is not particularly pooperiruesh just saw.
When installing skirting the main difficulty lies in fitting mates.Typically, the standard length of a single element - two meters.If the direct write snap joints (if no chips on the edges), then fitting the corners tend to start problems.But «for later" to leave the most difficult - is not an option .
Important!Installation of skirting board should start with the corner, with the most prominent and well-lit.And always at the approach to the next intersection, first attach the walls to the base of both the plinth, which will dock, carefully measure out the distance, and only then cut or sawing.This is one of the secrets of how to cut the corner on the ceiling moldings.
Progress and parts
- There are a few different options, but the main thing - it is probably the simultaneous cut of two elements.It is good you can see, if you look at the network as the cut corner on the ceiling moldings video.Most of the workshops indicate this is a way to cut corners.What is the essence?
- to improve the speed and quality of work, you can use a special tool carpenter, called miter box.This is exactly what the device is intended for cuts and profiles at different angles.While we are interested in right angle of intersection of the walls, so consider the part where the cut is made 45 degrees .
- As one baseboard towards another sawed in strict mirroring, while simultaneously cutting is very important to maintain the precise angle of 45 ° .It is necessary to add two skirting the inner side of each other, put them in a miter box and tightly fastened.Thereafter, the cut with a hacksaw with fine teeth.Without miter box you always "escape" angle!
But this method is how to cut inside or outside corner ceiling moldings is exclusively aligned to the walls and ceiling!Since our builders differ a surprising constancy not comply perpendicular to the surface, and even leave the local irregularities in the ceiling and walls, often quite miter box does not guarantee that you will get a smooth and perfect pairing docked.So long as we consider only the "ideal" versions when all flat and smooth.
Inside corners: the nuances
We will act right steps: to cut the right inner corner, insert plinth in miter box, press it on the right edge of the 45-degree risk and cut with a hacksaw.Remember that we mean otrez of two mirror-folded items.Pay attention: if long stretch skirting the left, the left-hand corner should do, and vice versa.Two at the same time provide control the cut angle exactly.If done correctly, the ideal walls and with an angle of exactly 90 ° is no problem with the docking will not.If you still have bumps, and the plane of the cut are not the same, then you have to measure everything in place and further dub joint sharp knife construction.This is quite simple, if the material - not wood, as mentioned earlier.
outer corners: the nuances
How to cut the outer corner of ceiling moldings - see above mirroring.These corners in residential areas across somewhat less, but the technology is not at all difficult, though, at first such a need may mislead you.Try to think "on the contrary", it will help.First, it will make a mark on both the cutting member.Also mirror folded skirting inserted into the device and fixed, but the length of the skirting should already be on the left.And you need to cut the corner on the left 45-degree mark.Similarly, after cutting the joined parts "dry running" verified header, and if necessary, - the edges are smoothed with a knife.
you all very difficult miter box is not useful, hacksaw - hardly.The houses and apartments with a custom layout, first, the corners can not be 90 °, and secondly, they all can be rounded or have multiple faces intersection.So take a breadboard or stationery knife, and cut the skirting board with a margin "by eye" at 45 °.Then select the item and connectivity to fit the previous otrez angle with the same shape.You can try on the design of the air, the case is quite long and painstaking.We need maximum precision!When fitting constantly try on pair received on-site "dry running".Only after several fittings can achieve a good result, and then glued to the base plinth.
Use must be very sharp instrument so as not to "razmahrit" edge.Cutting tools with burr on the leading edge, it is desirable not to use.That is, the saw is not suitable.In the case where the angles absolutely irregular or rounded, the dock can be made of several small elements.Skirting boldly cut into several parts to 4-5 pieces.Then, in every detail, both abutting edges cut off at a right angle to each previous element is applied thereafter, after which the joint is aligned.
always the case that one or more angles are still getting enough or smooth, or openings in the ground connections.As a result, the angle of the plinth is aesthetically pleasing, looks just ugly.On the sides there are visible gaps or dents.In this case, there is an additional way to correct such mistakes, Take an ordinary can of sealant and fill cracks and dents.We must work hand, no spatula or brush is not suitable.A little patience and diligence, and then wait until the sealant hardens, then trim excess sagging knife - and the appearance of fixed!Also recommend that you read the article "The stucco on the ceiling - unique and memorizing."
