How to align the walls?

Before proceeding with the alignment of the walls, it is first necessary to study in theory the ways and means by which this can be done. It is also necessary to foresee all the advantages and disadvantages of each method. The first way is to install a metal structure, the second is to apply special mixtures. To decide what to level the walls, you need to consider different options.

Installation of metal structures

What good is this way? First you need to determine how curved the wall is. After this, it is necessary to build profiles into the walls, onto which the whole structure will be mounted. The next step is to install the frame. Now you can mount drywall, which is applied special glue. Then you need to put the mesh (reinforced), then apply glue again. Now you need to wait for everything to dry, and then apply the top layer - putty and paint. The method is simple, time does not take much - 3-5 days. That's just the cost of materials is high and the work is quite laborious.

Special blends

The second method is the application of mixtures.It is necessary to establish precisely where there are irregularities, to establish “marks”, on which a layer of the mixture will be applied - cement. Exactly, according to the established marks, you need to apply the mixture on the wall, then level the cement. This method takes a lot of time. Installation takes from 7 to 12 days, but durability and reliability will be top notch. Therefore, the better to align the walls, you can not say for sure. Everyone decides for himself. Choose from two ways one and go!
