The floor: the expense will justify the quality!

Modern market for the production of practicalmaterials offers us all new functional ways to equip your home. The flooring becomes a very popular type of cover due to its functionality. There are many advantages to such a material, a significant disadvantage is only high cost. The floor, the consumption of the necessary materials for which you can calculate fairly accurately, will serve you for many years.

Preparing the floor

Before proceeding to pouring, you need toprepare the right roughing. From this, the smoothness of the future floor and the consumption of the material will depend. If there are unevennesses, they must be eliminated with a perforator. All large cracks and cracks neatly cover, this will not allow the pouring in them to drain.

Carefully remove the remnants of the former coating,sweep the floors and remove dust and debris. If there are stains from various oil contaminants and paints, they must be eliminated, otherwise the material will not be able to get a good grip on the rough coat. When the preparatory work is completed, you can primer the floors or arrange a pillow of sand. This will help to save money on the floor, the consumption will be reduced due to the completed loose foundation. Sand will not affect the functionality of the sexes, but will only become a weighty economical material in such work.

floor floor consumption

It is important when working to clearly calculate how much youYou need material to not interrupt the filling process. This will depend on the coating layer and the density of the mixture used on the self-leveling floors. The consumption per m2 is calculated as follows: the thickness of the filling in 1 mm is equal to 1 liter of the finished solution, it is sufficient for 1 m2 floor area. Following this formula, you will know exactly how much liquid is needed for your area.

For example, a room measuring 10 m2 will require 100 liters of the finished polymer. Pay attention to the density indicator on the packaging material. Very often the manufacturer adds heavy fillers to reduce the cost of the goods, but the more such in the composition, the greater the consumption per square meter. The density of the mixture in 1.2 kg per 1 liter increases the consumption of the solution from 100 liters per 10 m2 up to 120 liters (1.2 x 100). The flooring, the consumption of working materials for which you can now calculate independently, can be of different heights depending on your needs: it can be used both as a basic type of covering and as a black screed for the main material.

Dry mixture on the bulk floor

Before you start mixing the mainsolution, you need to determine the amount of dry material necessary to arrange the floor. The consumption of the mixture for work can be calculated by a simple calculation. According to the standards and type of mixture (the number of heavy additives is taken into account), the cost is expected to be 1.2 to 1.8 kg per 1 m2 your coverage.

The basis is taken by the thickness of the floor of 0.1 cm. You can easily arrange the floor, the cost of consumables for which it is easy enough to calculate.
