Homeowners should be aware of the procedure for carrying out repair work in order to avoid mistakes, as well as to prevent the negligence of workers if the company is still not the most reliable one. So let’s go:
Partitions and coverings
Most of the dirt and dust occurs when breaking old partitions and removing coatings, so this work should be done first.
The replacement of old windows brings a lot of dust and dirt: the installation of plastic windows has become the norm today, and no major repairs are required without it. When the windows have been replaced, they are usually covered with polyethylene prior to the completion of the renovation work to protect them from contamination.
The wiring device is the next stage of the repair. Now the wires are placed in metal pipes, and this is very convenient, since they are protected from possible damage, and if necessary, they can be easily replaced.
Plastering and painting works
Plastering and painting work is performed when the wiring is complete. It is advisable to perform them at once in all rooms of the apartment so that everything dries out at the same time: the next layer of plaster can be applied only after the previous one has dried – then the walls and ceiling will be even.
Kitchen and bathroom
Simultaneously with painting work, a kitchen and a bathroom are being installed. The pipes are laid out according to the plan, taps and a bath are installed, the walls are leveled and tiles are laid: first on the walls, and then on the floor. After that, you can install the rest of the plumbing and accessories – hangers, holders, etc.
Next, the floor screed is performed, and here a lot depends on the choice of materials. The use of a mixture of cement and sand is inexpensive, but such a floor dries for a long time, and a lot of effort is required to level it. There are much fewer problems with self-leveling floors, which are also called self-leveling: this floor is leveled well, if you follow the technology, and dries up in just a couple of weeks.
The installation of door frames and doors
The installation of door frames and doors follows the leveling of the floor – during this work, the thickness of the selected flooring must be taken into account. The doors can then be removed and removed before the end of the main work. At the same time, the ceiling is being painted and the floor is being completed.
Installation of flooring
Tiled floors can be in the kitchen, as well as in the hallway – on request. The tiles can be laid directly on the concrete floor, but before that, they must be covered with a primer. If, however, laminate, parquet board, or laminated parquet is chosen as the floor covering, then the floor screed must also be covered with sheets of plywood, then wallpaper must be glued, and then the floor covering must be installed.
When the main repair work is completed, you can continue finishing work: install sockets and switches, platbands, baseboards, etc.
Consistent execution of work during major repairs allows you to avoid unnecessary costs and complete the repair as soon as possible.
