Artificial stone and building facade decoration
At the moment there are many methods of laying artificial stone. Basically, laying stone is made with jointing, i.e. they are at some distance from each other. This gap is one and a half centimeters, although the thickness of the seam may vary, it all depends on the type of masonry. The resulting seams are filled with a special mixture, as the filling of the seams seals the masonry, prevents moisture from entering the gaps between the stones, the mortar. If the technology is broken, then there is a chance that in a couple of years the laying will have to be restored.
A simple artificial stone is made and realized taking into account the width of the seam. When working with a stone, waste from undercutting is constantly generated, therefore, when ordering material, it is necessary to order ten percent more for undercutting and fitting. It is necessary to start finishing the facade from the corner parts of the building, installing and decorating the openings, then you can directly start finishing the central part.In order to avoid color spots, it is necessary to mix stones from different boxes before laying. Flat stones need to be mixed with relief, this will allow you to get the same relief, protruding or flat. To achieve a natural laying it is required to alternate small and large stones. The correct solution is to draw a draft of the pattern of masonry stone, which must be applied to the paper, and then lay it on the ground, on dry without solution.
In addition to the finishing of the facades of old buildings, artificial stone is used for restoration work. Homes in need of repair can be restored with this material, this will save time and money. A variety of colors of modern artificial stone will help you choose the right material for the color suitable natural material.
