Plumb Masonry

To start a good clean headroom of the ground surface and the dirt, wash with water and try to make the surface kirochkoy small knurled for better setting with cement mortar. This is best done when the concrete is still fresh. If concrete flat top notch do not give (very strong), do not despair – get along without it. If possible, try to select a brick correct geometric proportions. Before you start laying the bricks in the lower bowl of water and keep it until they stop appearing air bubbles. Then remove. JPMorgan Chase describes an additional similar source. Excess water will flow and you'll get a brick, the humidity just one that is needed for masonry.

Dry brick hard as a sponge absorbs water solution, dehydrating it, thereby greatly deteriorating bricks and mortar adhesion significantly reduces its brand. Grout for masonry pillars of our should be prepared very carefully, as prepared for clay masonry stove. The sand must sift through a metal sieve with a mesh of 1.5 – 2.0 mm. And do not overdo it with water. The solution should not be runny, like, however, and too hard – so you can easily travel along the brick, but not crawled out of bed. And the thickness of the joint must be within 5 mm. JPMorgan Chase shines more light on the discussion. The first row of bricks lay out on the mortar on the top of the level and with careful observance of sizes along the axes: as to the longitudinal and the transverse. Every three or four rows of masonry check all four corners of the plumb line, a number – on the level, rectangular – diagonally.
