Usually for the construction of baths using a tree, however, the prices on natural wood is much above the price level of modern building materials. Features of operation of the structure under the bath requires a careful choice of material for walls. Construction of the baths of aerated concrete is possible only if correct execution of internal finishing works, involving the use of waterproofing materials.
Aerocrete for bath
Why is tree experts recommend the use of aerated concrete blocks? The answer is simple:
- From this material the bath can build it yourself without hiring a team of builders.
- Prices for aerated concrete block below the wood, and the operating time is much more.
- The structure of aerated concrete is obtained durable and reliable.
Among all the characteristics of the building material is one that stops many developers from the use of aerated concrete for the bath. This is a high rate of absorption by the material moisture. To resolve this problem by only using the interior decoration of a good waterproofing material. Outside the walls of aerated processed by special impregnations or coatings to reduce the rate of water permeability.
Aerated concrete is able to keep heat inside the building and there is no need to use insulating materials. For the construction of baths used insulating wall blocks, perfectly preserves its characteristics under operating conditions.
Blocks of aerated concrete is not covered with mold and are not subject to rodent attack. An important factor for the construction of the baths of aerated concrete block is a building material fire resistance.
Light weight blocks does not require the construction of a reinforced Foundation designs that will save on construction time and materials. The building of gazoblokov practically does not shrink. Operation of the structure can begin immediately after construction.
The development of the project of the baths of aerated concrete block
When developing the project of the baths of aerated concrete block takes into account the technical characteristics of the building material. The accompanying documentation should include recommendations on addressing issues of hydro – and vapor barrier on the inside. For construction of aerocrete the recommended arrangement of dry steam (sauna).
Special attention is paid to the tightness of doors and Windows and high-quality docking waterproofing material. Properly designed projects recommend the installation of special membranes, vapor permeable in one direction, and installation of ventilated facades.
During individual project development need to be considered:
- The location and dimensions of vestibule, rest rooms, steam rooms, bathrooms.
- Supply of communications.
- Type of Foundation.
- The possibility of arrangement of pool.
- A kind of furnace for heating steam.

Strip foundations of the baths of aerated concrete block
The construction of baths, as well as any other building starts with laying the Foundation. According to the developed project is preparing the pit for band of shallow Foundation. For the construction of aerocrete this base design is sufficient. Weakly deepened Foundation you can use almost any soil characteristics at the construction site. During the pouring of the Foundation provides outlets for communication.
Before you start laying the first row of blocks on the base, fit the roofing material. Work on the construction of the walls start from the highest corner. The first blocks placed on the house corners of the grout and pull the rope between them.
The construction of the walls of aerocrete
Subsequent rows of blocks put on the glue layer is not more than 0.7, see Every fourth row of blocks shift reinforced mesh, which make the walls more durable. Above the openings of doors and Windows made of reinforced concrete belt. The same belt is in the top row of the walls.
In a concrete zone of the inserted wire strands with anchors for fastening of mauerlat. Construction of the baths of aerated concrete completed the construction of the truss roof system. The roof may be lean-to, gable, hipped, or other structures. To cover roof system is suitable for any type of roofing material.
A block-house for the exterior of the baths of aerated concrete
It should be noted that laying of internal communications in the bath of aerated concrete is much easier than in the structure of wood. Aerated concrete blocks are easily stroebe. Sex in the bath can be done from wood or tile.
Finish bath gazoblokov
The quality of the performance of the internal and external decoration of the baths of aerated concrete and determine the performance of the overall structure. Before using finishing the walls and ceiling are covered with special waterproofing compounds or obryvayutsya foil wrap. The walls are made of aerated concrete blocks can be coated with liquid glass, which makes them much warmer. For finishing used wooden wall paneling alder, Linden and larch. Crate for fastening lining provides ventilation gaps.
The appearance of the building from gazoblokov unattractive and in need of protection from exposure to the natural environment. The outside walls are covered by hydrophobic primer. For finishing used brick masonry ventilated façade, decorative plates, wooden or plastic siding, block-house.
The cost of the bath of aerated concrete block
The price of construction is affected first and foremost the complexity of the project. The easiest option for budget bath turnkey in the average price of 10 thousand rubles per square meter. The execution of complex projects on price increases several times. You can do the construction yourself. In this case, the spending graphs will remain the purchase of construction materials.
The use of concrete instead of wood reduces the final cost of the baths twice. For the construction of durable, reliable construction with a long service life, special attention should be paid to the correct choice of aerocrete. Products must be of uniform color, same size and with smooth edges.
For the development of the project will have to pay anyway, if you are not an expert in the field of design. A lot of positive feedback from developers suggests that to engage in the construction of the baths of aerated concrete may be almost every man, at least a little familiar with the basics of construction.
«Built a bath of gazoblokov more than two years ago, though many friends dissuaded from the use of such a material for construction. The choice of blocks was treated with the utmost seriousness and expressed a preference for autoclaved aerated concrete, what do not regret. I had to carefully work on the waterproofing of surfaces indoors and protected the entire building from the outside, but the result pleases» Vitali Rus, Voronezh.
«During the construction of the baths of aerated concrete any difficulties arose. I ordered a custom project from the experts, everything else is done with their own hands. The result is excellent. Now every weekend with friends and going to all like our bath» Alexander, St. Petersburg obl.
«Long doubted, but still chose to build the walls of the baths of aerated concrete. The result is pleasant to have more than three years. Problems with the operation there. The building is dry, warm and very comfortable. Recommend all friends to use our experience in the construction» Elena Demchuk, Pskov obl.
