Everyone knows that independent repair almost never has a logical completion. Yes, and on time, construction work is sometimes stretched for several months. Such a nuance is satisfied with a few, because of what the owners of repaired houses try to look for different solutions for quickly updating residential premises. Regarding the walls of the walls and the ceiling by the ideal version of the PVC panels. These plastic plates are relatively recently acquired popularity, especially when making small rooms.
How to glue on liquid nails?
Surely everyone got used to the fact that plastic plates, and other types of panels, are attached to drywall, on the surface of which the doomle is pre-fixed. Due to such a complex frame design, it is possible to get rid of the irregularities and other wall defects. However, this method of plating is inappropriate when placing rooms with small quadrature. But thanks to modern technologies, it is possible to mount the PVC panels to the walls and other grounds without installing crates and fake rails. Sufficiently stock liquid nails.
Before starting large-scale work, you need to make a test installation. For this, a small piece of PVC-slab is taken, the glue composition of liquid nails is applied to its back, after which the plate is pressed to the base and remains in this position for several days. After the specified time is made to test for fastening.
In addition, it is important to pay attention to the state of the plate. When using low-quality liquid nails, the plastic panel can swell.
As for liquid nails, this material can be purchased on any construction market. But often the counters are filled with variations of European manufacturers. Each mixture is characteristic of its characteristics, but combines their transparency. Even a small amount of protruding mass will be unnoticed on the surface of decorative panels.
When working with PVC panels, liquid nails showed themselves from the best side. They firmly hold plastic plates on any surface. Viscous adhesive mass is packed in elongated tubes that are inserted into special guns. Special attention when working with liquid nails should be devoted to the temperature in the room. Ideally, it should be 22-25 degrees. Not scary if the degree of heat in the room will be higher. In the opposite case, there is a possibility that liquid nails simply will not connect the plastic plate with the base of the wall.
No less important factor is the purity of the working surface. Well, after mounting each individual panel, you must view the presence of a protruding mass of liquid nails. If a certain amount of adhesive composition leaked through the slit, it must be removed by a regular newspaper. If the figured liquid nails dried, they will be able to remove only sandpaper.
Plastic PVC panels are waterproof, however, through the joints between the plates, a small amount of moisture falls. And if there is essential ventilation in the kitchen, preventing the spread of dampness, then in the bath case is much more difficult. Bathrooms are not ventilated, and the amount of moisture present in this room is significantly higher.
Accordingly, mold and fungus may appear on the walls. That is why in the bathrooms it is not recommended to sow wall panels PVC.
Well, now you should get acquainted with the process of work. Actually shelter the walls of PVC panels is easy. All work can be made with your own hands, without the involvement of masters. First of all it is necessary to get rid of the old plaster. Then align the working surface with a plaster mixture, wait until it dries, and only after it starts to gluhable panels.
The first plate is taken, the adhesive mass is applied to the back, after which the panel is deposited in about 5 minutes. It is then neatly applied and pressed to the working surface. Thus, all the harvested plates should be installed. By a similar scheme, the ceiling finish is performed.
Pros and cons
Any building material has certain advantages and some disadvantages. The same applies to PVC panels. Before starting to install, a master who does not have experience with these plates must remember that this material is very easily deformed. A small effort from a person leads to damage to the panel.
Particular attention is important to pay safety techniques when working with PVC panels. This material quickly flashes upon contact with open fire. In the process of burning, it allocates poisonous smoke, negatively affecting people’s health. By the way, the unpleasant smell capable of harming the human body is felt from poor-quality PVC panels.
And of course, you should not hope that PVC plates will serve for a very long time. This trimming material is made of plastic, which can obtain mechanical damage.
But if we treat facing carefully, care for the plates, they will become a unique decorative decoration of the house or apartment.
Next, read the process of installing PVC panels by means of screws. To begin with, you must prepare tools without which the plastic panels cannot be installed possible. These include:
- construction stapler;
- Pencils (as an analogue of a pencil will be a marker);
- And, of course, the self-tapping screws themselves.
Prepare tools, you will need to check for a number of materials:
- external and inner corners;
In case the PVC panels are made by installing the crate, it does not make sense to level the working base. If the plates are fixed on the walls themselves, it is necessary to align the base in advance so that there are no drops and waves. After leveling, the surface should be projected and treated with a special antiseptic mixture, which will save from the appearance of mold and fungal deposits. After applying the first layer, the antiseptic is immediately applied. Waiting for the drying of the primary coating is not required.
When preparatory work is completed, you can start. The process of fixing the PVC panels on the wall is almost identical to fixation on liquid nails. Only in the role of the connector plates with the base protrusion protrude.
It is much more difficult to make installation plates using a crate.
- First you need to install the frame. For its manufacture, metal or wooden rails will be required. The distance between the longitudinal bars should be 30-40 cm. Rakes are attached to the base of the wall perpendicular.
- Next to the framework of fittings are mounted. In this case, we are talking about corners of the internal and external directions. If the PVC panels reaches the ceiling, the wizer must be installed the ceiling plinth.
- The first plate is placed, fixed by self-drawing. The second panel is attached to her side side. They are connected by inserting into special grooves, as if parquet latches. It is important to trace for the first stove to be exhibited by level. Otherwise, the whole range will “swim”.
- Most often, the last plate with its sizes does not match the remaining wetting distances of the wall. That is why it has to be short. In this case, it is extremely important to do a smooth slice.
After installing the plates using the rooms of the room, although they become smaller, but still acquire peculiar beauty and updated sophistication.
When it is impossible to mount without a frame?
Despite the existing methods for mounting the PVC panels to the wall or ceiling, there are some limitations, due to which the mounting plates is carried out only on a pre-mounted frame.
- In case there are multiple defects on the walls or ceiling, it is impossible to fix that in a short period of time.
- When it fails to get rid of the old coating, for example, from wallpaper or decorative plaster.
- If the surface of the walls and ceilings have constant contact with moisture, because of which saturated dampness. In such a situation, even the frame must be made of metal. Wooden rails over time are also likely to moisture and come into disrepair.
In fact, there are quite a few factors, because of which it is important to pre-prepare the framework for PVC-plates. However, for each individual room, the installation facilities are considered individually.
