Are You in Norfolk Massachusetts? Do You Need Concrete Cutting?
Disinfect the freshly cut surfaces with a coat of creosote or crude petroleum oil. Heat some coal tar and apply a thick coat to the disinfected surfaces. This coat of tar applied thick serves as a plastic substance to prevent any cracks between the cement and the wood from shrinkage. The cavity, if it is a large one, may be reinforced to better hold the concrete in place with either some woven wire mesh reinforcement or with small steel rods placed across from side to side of the cavity. Cut back the bark for about 1/8 of an inch or so around the entire wound in order to prevent- bruising it while the work is in progress, and in order to get the cement perfectly 'flush with the wood, which cannot be done when the bark is not cut away. For a large cavity some kind of a form must be used to prevent the concrete from caving out when it is being placed. For this boards may be fitted to the opening, leaving a space at the top to pour in the concrete; or metal, like zinc or tin, may be thoroughly greased and tacked on. When it is ready mix up a batch of concrete composed of one part granulated Portland Cement, two parts of sand and four parts of screened gravel or stone made up to a rather stiff consistency, about like jelly. If the opening to the cavity is small, so that no form is required, trowel the surface of the concrete lightly so as to leave it smooth.
If the concrete is too soft to make a good vertical surface or if the upper part of the cavity is not entirely filled, wait for two or three hours until the concrete has begun to stiffen, ram it in again to completely fill the hole and then trowel the surface, adding a little stiff concrete if necessary. If concrete forms are used, remove them as soon as possible, either in a few hours or else the next day, and go over the surface so as to slightly roughen it and remove the form marks. The bark on a tree treated with concrete and in this way will grow over the concrete and in some cases not even leave a scar. Aquariums constructed of concrete can be made attractive and have been found very serviceable. Some of these concrete aquariums have been in service since 1904 and look as good to-day as when first made. Make the base or bottom of each tank IS by 31 inches and the vertical sides 13 by 15 inches, by 2 inches thick. Make the sides with vertical grooves 11/4 inches from the edge in order to set in the glass sides. Leave grooves in the bottom also so that the glass sides can be puttied in and be made watertight at the joints. During the past few years’ concrete blocks have been used extensively and many patents have been granted the manufacturers of concrete block machines for the various devices and methods employed. Buildings constructed with concrete blocks have proved satisfactory when the blocks have been made with care and with proper materials. Stucco work is cement plastering, and, in one form or another, has been in use for ages It is durable, artistic and impervious to weather.
For veneering new buildings, or protecting old structures, and wherever the cost of solid concrete is prohibitive, Portland Cement Stucco cannot be equaled. Stucco work may be used to cover wood, brick, stone or any other building material, provided special precautions are taken in preparing the surface properly so that it will adhere and not crack or scale off. The work should be done by an experienced plasterer. As a rule two coats are used—the first, a scratch coat composed of five parts granulated Portland Cement, twelve parts clean, coarse sand and three parts slaked lime putty and a small quantity of hair; the second, a finishing coat composed of one part granulated Portland Cement, three or even five parts clean, coarse sand and one part slaked lime paste. Should only one coat be desired the finishing coat is used.
