Building tips and tricks
Generally there are two types of paints. Alkyd (oil) and polymer paints. . Alkyd paint is suitable for painting wood, metal and plastic. Applying prime on the wall before painting it is a must. In practice, after the ground coat is applied, the surface needs to be cleaned from the dust and then a very thin paint should be applied on the wall. The lack of primer could ruin the ground coat. Paints for different premises are of same base but they differ by their additional components – latex, teflon, silicone, etc.
There are a few types of plasterboard available in Bulgaria. All are made from aerated gypsum plaster – hence the Bulgarian name “GypsCarton”, and are covered both sides with strong paper. The standard sheet of plasterboard in most merchants in Bulgaria has a grey paper back and ivory coloring on the front facing side. The standard size is 12.5 mm (thickness), although different dimensions are available.
