Facing Brick Laying

As a rule, a column is called a vertical support, or an architectural element having a pillar-like structure. In this article we will look at an example of a column with a width of 4 bricks. The masonry of this construction was made of standard facing bricks. This work is carried out in several stages. First, a careful marking of the column follows. This is a crucial stage, as the quality of work performance depends on it. It is necessary to decide where this architectural element will be located, how many bricks will be needed in one row in order not to carry out trimming. In addition, it is necessary to determine the thickness of the seams. Next, you need to prepare the necessary tools for the job. For the construction of the column, you will need a construction level, plumb, fishing line, rubber mallet, trowel, mortar tank, jointing, glazing bead, stepladder, if working at height. In addition to the tool, you will need cement, sand, water, a container for mixing mortar, wire, an anchor.The proportions of the masonry solution are one part cement and three parts sand. The solution should not be liquid, but on the contrary it is better to use thickish. As a rule, when laying columns it is very important to observe the lines of the corners, as well as the lines of stitches on the level. In order for the whole structure to be even it is necessary to carefully check the level of each brick. For this you can use a small building level. After erecting several rows, use a large level of 1.5 m. So that the columns are evenly vertical. In order for the seams to be even, you can pull the line from the two extreme bricks. But since in our case only 4 bricks will be long enough.

In the illustration In detail it is shown how the laying of the facing brick under the bark is carried out. First, put a shtapik on the edge of the bed of the lower row of bricks. Then a solution is applied over its level. If you apply more mortar,then it will take longer to hammer the brick with the mallet so that it will be on the same level with the neighboring brick. Because of this, the lower ranks can sink. If the solution is applied below the level of the glazing bead, then this brick will be used. Therefore, it is necessary to distribute the solution exactly at the level of the bead. The brick is flattened by gently tapping a mallet at the corners of a brick.

In order to give the fortress of Colonia, every 3- 4 rows should be laid metal wire. And about every 50 cm. Ankerit column. To do this, drill a hole equal to the diameter of the anchors that you use. Anchors twist into the hole and welded to the wire,which stretches between the seams of brickwork. It is not necessary to erect a large number of rows of columns in a short time, since under the mass of bricks the lower rows can permeate, because of which the horizontal seams will be uneven. The maximum number of rows, which is recommended to build at a time - no more than six.
