In the past most of the marble walls was done with closed board


System boards

The meeting is not simply the space between the perimeter of the slabs, and is tasked specifically to allow free movement of the slabs caused by temperature fluctuations or any adjustments to the supporting structures or anchor.

The boards can be either open or closed.

Meeting closed
Are closed together, even allowing movement of the slabs, have a distance of 2 / 3 mm. In the past most of the marble walls was done with closed board. The adoption of this type of board generally allows installation on site of slabs of small dimensions and very thick.
The tendency to increasingly reduce the thickness of the slabs and the greater elasticity of the existing building structures that Read the rest of this entry »


Precast concrete walls are those made entirely or partly in a industrial process through concrete elements

Types of drywall

Precast concrete walls are those made entirely or partly in a industrial process through concrete elements. They are then transported to its final location, where they are installed or assembled, with the possibility of incorporating other precast or executed in the work itself.

These are classified according to their structural design:

Built drywall.

It is formed by a flat or ribbed element, continuous or discontinuous, precast concrete, prestressed or post tensioned and fixed at its base.

They work in a cantilever fixed at its base or shoe. Can be considered active, ie, enter load when you apply the filler. Its two main functions are the maintenance and control of land. The construction of the shoe requires a previous excavation, which makes this wall have a function of coating.

Important field seats based on certain occasions can be Read the rest of this entry »


Applying spray foam to the walls of the basement with a closed cell foam which does provide the best tight vapor barrier and insulation system

How to insulate basement walls

Basement wall insulation
Getting a good basement wall insulation is not an easy job work. Basements are a challenge due to high humidity levels. To insulate a basement wall not only need to install insulation, install and need to know to choose the right materials to use.

Details to be taken to avoid moisture in the basement walls:

Do not install the fiberglass insulation into a wall.
* Do not install a layer of polyethylene against a wall followed by the fiberglass insulation.
* Do not install a vapor barrier paint type (DryLok or similar), followed by fiberglass insulation.
Although the wall of the walls apparently is dry, it is not, and condensing vapor will later brings up the molds.

Tips to insulate the walls of a cellar:
Apply spray foam, is to spray the walls of the basement with a closed cell foam. While this method is expensive, does provide the best tight vapor barrier and insulation system. The spray foam is probably the best possible insulation material for basements and damp areas. The spray foam offers several advantages such as additional structural stability, high moisture barrier, easily covers the pipes, cables and other utilities

Install foam panels – If you want to save some money and do it yourself, then you should use the isolating walls of foam boards. The breakdown of the basement wall insulation foam board creates a vapor barrier, along with a good layer of insulation that will Read the rest of this entry »
