What is the best way to plan an apartment renovation?
Visitors to the real estate bulletin board in Ukraine TORRO are first acquainted with the offer for the sale of apartments. After the process of buying and selling an apartment has been completed, many people have the question: How best to plan apartment repairs? To perform quick and qualitative repairs in the apartment, you will need a desire and a sufficient amount of finance. The first important stage of the work is planning the repair of the apartment. To begin with, you must distribute all planned activities to the execution sequence and groups.
In the planning of repair work, there are three main points.
1. Select the time of the work.
End of summer is considered one of the most popular periods for repair work. However, you should not choose this time of the year, if you do not do the work yourself, because at the peak of the season, the prices of most construction companies are overstated, and there is a risk of shifting the time of work due to high workload. Due to possible problems with humidity, reduced atmospheric pressure and air temperature, winter time will not be the best period for repairs. Proceeding from this, the most suitable moment for repair will be spring, namely May and April. Carrying out repairs in this period (up to seasonal price increases) will significantly save on construction materials and services.
2. Accounting of expenses.
The construction team selected for the repair must provide the customer with the full cost estimate for the approval. Pay attention to the details of the estimate. Separation of works by items will allow you to more accurately determine the means necessary for repair. This principle is also useful for self-repair. When buying construction materials it is important to keep balance in economy and quality. They should not be too cheap, but you should not bypass goods with discounts. An acceptable discount without compromising quality will be a discount of no more than 10%. Ordering the material immediately with delivery will save your time and nerves. As for choosing a repair company, it is better to give preference to the same one from which materials are purchased.
3. Work plan.
In addition to the estimate, the construction organization, when proceeding to repair, must submit a work plan indicating the dates for their implementation. If this does not happen, you should ask for it. The presence of a detailed plan with an indication of all the timing and order of work will allow better control of the actions of the contractor. In case of deviation from the schedule, the customer has the right to formalize his claims in the form of an official document and to demand explanations from the foreman.
