Having tuned in to repair their housing, some hire specialists and fully rely on their professionalism. If you have extra money, you can also do. But it’s more rational to learn how to make a cosmetic repairs with your own hands at least. It is not so difficult. In addition, you can save well on labor. And the embodiment of the idea may turn out to be better – who, if not you, knows what you want.
But before proceeding with the repair, it is necessary to pay due attention to the preparatory process. Start by choosing a design solution of the future interior. To do this, it is not necessary to be “seven spans in the forehead”. “Take a walk” on the pages of the Internet, look through the catalogs and, having opted for some option, “document” it (t.e. Make a list of all the materials you need).
Do not immediately run for shopping. First go shopping, visit the databases of building materials and decide on quality and prices. Saving is good, but when choosing colors, wallpaper, linoleum, etc.P. give preference to quality. And only then make it measure with cost.
In addition to materials, you will need tools and other devices. What kind? You can also find out from the Internet. And it is best to purchase a table book for yourself with advice on the repair of apartments and houses on your own. It will definitely come in handy in the future. Believe me: having tried once, you will taste.
But the tools should be bought only those that are needed in everyday life not only during the repair. It is more rational to rent an expensive tool (all in the same construction store). To do this, it will be enough to conclude a contract and make a deposit.
Now you can move furniture, freeing space for a “natural disaster” on a scale of one apartment. If the future interior is incompatible with old furniture, get rid of it without regret (not to be thrown away – sell to random people or give friends).
Next, you need to get rid of the old decoration of walls, ceilings, floors: they removed the wallpaper, cleaned the surfaces from the old plaster, removed linoleum (if its replacement is provided). When replacing electrical wiring, communication pipes, plumbing, radiators, they should also be dismantled now. And immediately replace the “new”. In the break between work, you can order pizza delivery, because there will be no time to cook.
Only then, in fact, can you start the repair itself. At this stage, you need to clearly follow the law of universal gravity – all the “products” of your repair activities will all be settled on the floor. Therefore, he will be reconstructed at the last turn.
And you should start with the ceiling, then go to the walls, leaving the flooring “on the snack”. Each of these stages of work will have its own technology, which must be clearly followed in order to eventually get high -quality repair.
