Bearing walls are usually made of concrete, aerated concrete blocks or bricks.

The masonry itself has a rough structure and is not suitable for decorative coatings. The same can be said for subfloors, which also need leveling.

Rough finishing of walls made of blocks or bricks is their plastering.

To prepare a good solution , dry components are thoroughly mixed in the right proportion, and then diluted with water and mixed again.

Instructions for the preparation of plaster mixes are provided by a special technological map.

Portland cement is a finishing material that, after hardening, has high mechanical strength. Its properties depend on the brand, which are indicated by a three-digit number.

In construction, cements of grades 400, 500 and 600 are used with a setting time of about 15 minutes. The final hardening of the cement occurs within 30 days.

In plaster mixes, quarry sand is used as a filler. What can not be said about the rough finish. Here coarse or medium-grained sand, medium fraction, is suitable.

With minimal skills, you can easily do this work with your own hands without involving workers. For accuracy, beacons made from a special profile are used.

When installing beacons perpendicular to them from one wall to another, pull the cords in 1 meter increments.

This will help you to quickly align the staffs and get as close to the horizontal plane as possible.

The fixing of the beacons in a certain position is carried out using plaster mortar. This compound sets quickly and holds the staff well in the correct position.

The rough finish of a country house serves as the basis for decorative coatings only if it is done in compliance with all technologies and high-quality building materials were used. You can do the bulk of the work on plastering walls or pouring a concrete screed on your own with even minimal skills.

In this article, we have analyzed in detail the technology of rough finishing of a frame house, we hope that our article will help you in construction and repair.
