Practical tips for masonry blocks
I would like to tell you about the implementation of laying blocks. It is very important for high-quality masonry and for the strength of the wall that you have the seams:
The first is homogeneous, the second is not thick. That is, the thicker the masonry seam, the more heterogeneous it is, the more blocks are crooked, the weaker the overall masonry will be. You can choose a highly branded masonry material, use a highly branded masonry mortar, but because of the geometry, it all just goes under. Therefore, what is worth paying attention to here, we select the blocks as high as possible, the blocks are unpolished and there is a difference of up to 6 mm. Therefore, of course, not up to a millimeter, but there is a selection and in the row are blocks of the same height. The company "EuroAeroBeton" for many years engaged in the production and sale of aerated concrete products. You can buy high-quality aerated concrete blocks on the website at very competitive prices. As a result, the height of the seam walks on average from row to row, somewhere 4-7 mm. Sometimes they write that the height of the seam can be up to 12 mm, but this is incorrect information, becausefor a block this is too much. So pay attention to this. This is a lot when builders just do not want to select a block.
The second is the clutch itself. We conduct laying on perlite cement-sand lime mortar. And you can buy it ready, as a warm solution, and you can do it yourself. If you do it yourself, you will need to buy Perlite. This is a very dusty material. And one more thing that I would like to draw your attention to, the addition of perlite and lime makes the solution more plastic, less heavy and therefore the solution works very well with blocks.
Given that they have a slit structure, therefore the use of grids is not recommended. Just make the right, plastic, not heavy solution and everything will be fine. Moreover, the use of the grid in such places will not be critical, but still make laying less quality. Because not always the solution will go under the grid, under the grid drawing and accordingly there will be no clear coupling of the block plus the block.
