Decorating walls with plasterboard without a frame and do-it-yourself profiles. This type of construction work, such as finishing walls with drywall without profiles and a frame, seems difficult to many people to perform. But still, if you understand the technology, you can complete the installation work even faster than if you used a frame structure, and the end result will delight you with quality and reliability.
We suggest considering two main ways of attaching drywall to the wall without profiles and frame, and you will choose the one that you like best.
This method is suitable for brick, concrete and aerated concrete foundations, so it is most often used for decoration in city apartments.
Here we will consider what the technology of wall decoration is in this case, what tools and materials will be required, and also which of the nuances should be paid attention to when performing work.
First, it is worth considering what materials you need. You must have a minimum builder kit and can be purchased at any home improvement store that has tools and materials. Drywall is the main material that will be used for wall decoration according to the presented technology.
|Building material||Tips for choosing|
| The material for interior decoration must be at least 1.
2 cm thick, since it is this option that will help ensure the reliability of the surface. Sheets can be with a standard width of 1.2 meters, and a height of about 2.5-3 meters, the option should be chosen based on the parameters of your room, so that the wall is closed from bottom to top in one solid piece, it is undesirable that there are any transverse seams. The price of one sheet with parameters 1.
2 * 2.5 meters is approximately 350 rubles.
| All elements will be fixed using a special glue, and best of all the composition of the Knauf company is suitable. As for the assembly glue, it is made on a gypsum basis, so it hardens in a short time and holds drywall well. The cost of a bag of glue is about 330 rubles.
|It will help you process the base and topcoat. Most often, they buy universal formulations with deep penetration, which are sold in both standard and concentrated form. For a volume of 10 liters, you will have to pay from 450 to 1000 rubles, much depends on the manufacturer.|
Putty for finishing
| When the gypsum boards are fixed, they will need to be putty, and it doesn't matter if you are going to paint the walls or wallpaper.For the seams, use a compound from Knauf, and Acrylic Putz or Vetonit are perfect for finishing, their quality is excellent at a reasonable cost.
|Required in order to strengthen the joints and seams, and also prevent the formation of cracks at the joint. Without it, it will be difficult to achieve surface reliability, so you should definitely use it, the minimum permissible width is 4.5 cm, but you can also use the 9 cm wide option.|
As you can see, the set of material is quite simple and you don't need to buy dozens of different little things. Naturally, if you need to perform additional work on filling irregularities and leveling the base, then beacons and plaster may be required, but for now we will not consider this type of work, as it is described in a separate article.
Please note, that if there are no brand compositions that are recommended in your city, it will be easier to consult with specialists, and they will tell you what is better to take. Do not listen to sellers in hardware stores, as most likely they have never worked with putty and do not know anything about it from the practical side of the issue.
For wall decoration with drywall without a profile, other tools should be at hand. So, you must have the following:
In extreme cases, you can do everything with your own hands, but then the quality will suffer, and the work will take a lot of effort.
It is most convenient to use reinforced knives with a working blade width of 2.5 cm, they are the most durable.
The main thing is that the work is done accurately, and you do not overdo it.
Now you can proceed to the preparatory stage.
First, builds to prepare the premises for construction work, and do the following:
To start clean the walls from debris and dirt, and if there are residues from the old coating on the surface, then remove them so that the adhesive composition as best as possible lies on the surface of the walls. Please note that you cannot apply adhesives on a damp base, therefore, if the wall is damp, then in no case should you glue drywall sheets on it.
If the irregularities are not more than 2 cm, then you can finish immediately, since all the irregularities will be compensated for by the adhesive.
The main thing is that the entire surface is processed, and not a single section was missed.
Important! If your apartment has walls made of dense material or smooth concrete, then before starting work on finishing walls from a frame and profile, it is better to treat them with an adhesive primer with an additive of quartz. With the help of such a composition, you will be able to create excellent adhesion of the adhesive even to those bases that are painted with oil paint, and it is much easier than removing the entire coating.
By the way, if you use a primer with a colored pigment, it will be easier to understand if the entire surface is covered. After the layer of the composition dries out, you can start the rest of the work, and on this the preparation of the base can be considered successfully finished.
Interior wall decoration with glue is performed in the following sequence:
Prepare the amount of adhesive that is sufficient to fix one sheet, and with the average consumption data for 1 m 2 (about 5 kg) per sheet size 1.2 * 2. 5 meters will require 15 kg of glue. First, pour water, and then add the mixture and mix the mass.
Apply the glue in four rows of slides - two slides on the edge and under two in the middle at a distance of about 0.4 meters from each other. It turns out that on the sheet you should have 4 rows of slides, and they should be applied with a trowel or spatula, the result is shown in the photo.
This will help eliminate material deformation during the movement of the structure, which occurs during seasonal temperature fluctuations and during the shrinkage of the structure. The easiest way is to put a few pieces of drywall sheet or wood wedges under the bottom.
Please note that if you decide to apply the adhesive to the wall rather than the sheets, then the whole process will be the same, but the mixture will need to be distributed in the same order according to the base, and then attach the sheet.
If the sheets are installed close together, then you will not be able to properly strengthen the joints, and they will crack all the time.
Spread the filler in an even layer, hold the spatula at an angle of 30 degrees and do not press hard.
After that you can paint the surface or paste over with wallpaper, at this the finish is considered complete.
If you do not know how to finish walls with plasterboard without a frame and profile with your own hands in a wooden home, then this technology is ideal, and you can mount drywall directly on the wood.
List of materials is as follows:
If the walls are flat, this is not required.
Now let's talk about what tools are required.
As for the device for work, their list is different from the option described above, and you will need the following:
Also use a building angle for perfect line marking.
Before finishing the walls with drywall, a thorough preparation should be done:
Now let's move on to the workflow, and you will learn how to finish the walls with drywall without a frame and profile with your own hands.
If the surface is properly prepared, the work will not take much time and effort, so follow a few simple steps:
Then cut through the paper layer from the inside, and the work is complete.
Please note, that you should not forget to put drywall or wood under the bottom of the sheets so that there is a 1 cm gap. The rest of the work should be done in the same way, do not forget leave the seam between the sheets at 0.2-0. 3 cm. It is important that everything is screwed in correctly, they should not stick out above the surface, but do not sink too much.
The best option is presented below.
As for the rest of the works, everything is the same as above. Finished walls can be finished with decorative plaster, wallpaper glued, painted.
Note: If you are going to glue ceramic tiles on the walls, then use a moisture-resistant green drywall. It is not necessary to put putty on it, it will be enough just to apply a strengthening primer and you can paste over the tile.
You were able to make sure that anyone can fix the gypsum board without a profile and frame, and this is not just practical , but also reliable, since you do not need to spend money on a profile and expose the structure for a long time. The video below will help you understand all the nuances.
