- Calculation of wall putty and plaster is performed with the help of online calculator, which tells the number of bags and the material cost, if you know the specific brand.
- The number of sheets of plasterboard standard size 1200 mm × 2500h12 for walls depends on surface area closable except for the area of door and window openings. Wall area divided by the area of the GCR and the value is rounded.
- If drywall is attached to the walls, it pretends to be, how acquired adhesive bags - 1 It goes on bag 5-7 squares, as indicated on the packaging.
- If drywall is placed on the metal frame, the calculated amount based on the starting profile of the perimeter wall, and the number of CD profile of formula: plasterboard sheets (PC)/3.
- Drywall Ceiling thickness produced 9 mm. The number of sheets is calculated from the area of the ceiling plus the amendment made to organize the elements of the second and third levels. Do not forget to count the number of the profile.
- Calculation of sand concrete on screed made from the following data - on one square centimeter thick screed is required 22 kg of mixture.

The new screed is laid using beacons, which are set by the level and stretched Lesko to determine the surface curvature. Cement is poured between beacons and leveled regulation. The screed is laid in one go, otherwise it will not work even.
After drying laid flooring selected. When decorating a ceramic tile floor solution is applied to moistened screed, and the need to organize a self-leveling floor for laying laminate flooring - surface perfectly aligned.
