Plastering my Boundary Wall

plastering walls2

Pre cast walls are extremely popular and hundreds of thousands of homes, businesses, government institutions and departments have made use of its applications. There is however a limiting factor in terms of the look and designs available to the consumers of the product. The patterns and designs that are available, very rarely compliment the appearance of a persons’ home. Over time, precast walls can also become dirty and unsightly. These were the motivating factors that caused us to research ways and means to alter the aesthetic value of a precast wall. We have replicated many of the traditional expensive looking designs that are associated with plastered brick walls, as well as developed new designs that can all be easily and inexpensively applied to precast walls. Our market research indicates that the costs of installing a new precast wall and plastering it, are half of that of having a brick wall built. The inconvenience associated with building a brick wall is virtually eliminated.

Up until recently, pre-cast walls could not be plastered in a sustainable way. The conventional methods and plaster mixes used to plaster built brick walls simply do not work on the smooth face of pre cast walls.

The plaster often cracks and delaminates after a short time.

You need a bonding agent specifically designed to eliminate the problems associated with plastering the smooth surface of a precast wall.
Use an industrial strength bonding formula that has been specifically designed as a latex admixture for bonding plaster pre cast walls.  The addition of this revolutionary bonding formula confers numerous advantages over untreated mortars and concretes, such as:

•    greatly improved adhesion to substrates, including dense impervious concrete
•    excellent resistance to water and water vapour
•    improved toughness and flexibility
•    better resistance to frost
•    improved resistance to certain chemicals
•    diminishing dusting

foundationThere are many things to take into account before building a boundary wall, e.g. design and materials. A boundary wall should always have a good, deep and solid foundation to prevent anyone from digging under it to gain access to your property.

A good foundation should be around 1.5 m deep, and wider than the wall itself.

The height of the wall is also important, as there are rules as regards height allowed in built up areas.

If you are living in a high rainfall area, the wall could become cracked, which would lead to it coming down and possibly seriously injuring someone, if there is no foundation to protect it from the ground being washed away by excess rain.

The best solution to avoid disaster, is to consult with a professional to get guidelines and advice.
