Building a house from gas blocks
Currently, the markets show an abundance of building materials of various densities that are used in the construction of a house. In this case, everyone, when choosing a building material, strives to ensure that the house is safe and warm. Recently, building material such as gas-block has become popular among buyers. This is one of the varieties of concrete. In the production of gas blocks, they adhere to a high temperature and a certain degree of humidity. In addition to the main ingredients, aluminum crumb is introduced into the solution. The composition is treated in a special autoclave, which contributes to increasing the strength of the material.
Aerated concrete blocks have several undeniable advantages: 1. Strength. 2. Dimensions of the block.Each manufacturer has different block sizes, with different strength and heat conductivity. 3. It is produced at construction enterprises, mainly in large batches. Fully complies with GOST and has a certain size. 4. Convenience of transportation - gas-blocks belong to the category of light construction materials. 5. Easy installation, due to smooth edges on all sides of the unit. 6. Efficiency. Its cost is much less than a brick. 7. It has good heat and sound insulation properties. 8. Amenable to self-processing. If necessary, it can be drilled or sawed, and also give it any desired shape.
9. The construction speed is due to the large size of the block itself.
Disadvantages of aerated concrete blocks: Of the drawbacks, you can select only one: the gas-block does not belong to moisture resistant materials. But this drawback is easy to remove. It is enough to make the exterior decoration of the house.The exterior decoration of the house can be done: facing bricks, siding and so on. But the most important thing in all this is that it is not necessary to invite a specialist to build a house, you can do it yourself. It will take much less effort than working with other materials.
But first of all, it is important to calculate the required number of aerated concrete blocks and other building material. The size of the blocks must be chosen depending on the climate and on the characteristics of the heating. Aerated concrete blocks are laid out on the finished foundation. For the connection of the first row with the second, a cement-sand mortar is used. And for the subsequent rows use special glue. Before applying it, the surface is lightly moistened with water. The glue lays down smoothly, due to the smooth surface of the block. The special feature of this glue is that it dries quickly. Therefore, you should not pull with the alignment and alignment of the blocks. The row can be adjusted within 15 minutes after installation, by tapping with a rubber mallet.
