How to breed cement?
It is very simple to dissolve cement, proceeding from a ratio of 3: 1. That is, for three parts of sand - one share of cement. But there are a lot of nuances. About how to properly dilute the cement and tell you later in our article.
Nuances how to breed cement
If you mix cement manually, you must first mix sand and cement dry, as mentioned above, based on a 3: 1 ratio. It should be a homogeneous gray mass. If you work with a concrete mixer, then you can not do that. After the cement is mixed with sand, make a recess in the center of the pile and pour water into it. Let stand 10-15 minutes and only then mix. This is necessary in order to give the solution the necessary elasticity. And when you remove the excess solution from the wall, you will avoid problems and unnecessary effort. In case you mix a large amount of mortar, you need to add one or two cement spade above proportion.
The solution for pouring the foundation must be mixed very carefully.Despite the presence of rubble stone, it is necessary to avoid poorly diluted solution. After all, such a foundation will not tolerate interseasonal temperature fluctuations and the effects of water erosion, so be careful. It is best to use a concrete mixer that you can buy or rent. A good quality concrete mixer costs about 15 thousand.
How to dilute cement for screed
The screed solution requires special attention. The recommendations are, in principle, the same. That's only if you plan to lay laminate or plywood, then after the screed hardens, do not be too lazy to level the surface with tile glue - the coating will not creak.
