Do-It-Yourself Foundation Repair
Entrepreneurs call for the house to be repaired is a huge bill – not to mention that the workers in the house cause a day-to-day loss. And then there are overtime, delay in material supply and other circumstances.
People with small artistic rhythm can simply handle their chisels and stitches in their own hands and can improve with smaller cracks (and in some cases even with larger cracks) on their own home base. There are a lot of TV shows and books on the subject – and you can not even start the number of websites related to house number. However, before trying to repair the house, he has to judge a few things.
The availability of time and patience is paramount. Improving the basics is not easy for the first timers. The mortar does not hold the crack for the first few dozen times. It requires tremendous patience, and just like everything else, it is a perfect experience for this task. You have to work if you can spend many days out of the calendar to complete the task. Be Realistic in Assessing Skills; make sure it is able to complete the task. It does not work if you have to leave the mission halfway and find the yellow side for the expert to come and fix the mess you did. For beginners it would only increase the cost line. It is also necessary to check if all the necessary tools are available when there is no social opportunity to celebrate your home on that day and other such minor factors.
The minimum requirement for repairing a house is to install cement, sand, mortar and tools such as a smoothing smoothness (plaster and glide), hammer and chisel, screwdrivers, drills, wire brushes and the like. First, unscrew the mortar for a small base plate. Use a wire brush to remove dust and dried mortars. Prepare the mortar mix with two parts of the building sand, part of the cement. Use cement-grade cement for better adhesion. Prepare the mixture with minimum water, ensuring that the cement and the sand are perfectly matched.
Use a pointer with a trowel to insert the mixture into the fracture. Slowly and gradually work along the crack, taking every precaution to avoid loose air gaps in the crack. Use a flat wooden surface to smooth the mortar before drying. After the filling is complete, leave the cracking charged for drying. To do this, sprinkle with two or three water to make the mixture expand and fill the cracking. If it is completely dry (after about 2 days), paint the surface.
However, if it is a crack in a tile, then the whole tile needs to be replaced. The procedure is completely different if leak cracks are formed. In this case, the tiles should be replaced and the drainpipe is mounted on a water pump to extract water.
Before attempting to do a repair job, you can carefully estimate the costs with a specialist. The severity of the crack is another matter. There are other things, such as electrical wiring (if passing through this area) and the plumbing.
