Whether it is a private or a country house, an apartment in an old building or a modern skyscraper, all residential building owners have at least once in their life dealt with the construction industry for renovation purposes. When carrying out the corresponding type of work, specialists in this field must take into account whether this will be:
- Renovation of a private house;
- Home improvement of a country house.
It would seem that both one and the other building have a residential character. With home improvement in a private house, a specialist and a customer of services needs to focus on the fact that this type of housing will be used on an ongoing basis. When considering the home improvement in private houses within the city, the customer, as a rule, wants the facade of his building to fit into the overall architectural appearance harmoniously. In turn, the renovation of country houses allows the consumer to choose any design of the house, which seems to him the most attractive or practical.
What is the cost of renovation work in today’s real estate market?
Each company that offers construction services sets prices independently. Of course, with their competent formation, the appropriate level of the company’s competitiveness and the quality of the service provided by its specialists must undoubtedly be preserved. But in any case, the price of the home improvement will be based on the type of work ordered by the consumer. Thus, the customer can choose one of 4 types of home improvements:
- Overhaul (or turnkey home improvement) provides for the installation or replacement of communication systems, windows, and doors. Also, interior finishing of surfaces, painting works, interior design, implementation of individual solutions is carried out. This process can take several months.
- Cosmetic is a quick and inexpensive process that involves fixing deficiencies in older housing. May include the renovation of the facade, interior decoration, etc.
- Redevelopment – provides for a change in the structural system of the house. It must be performed only after a good study of the architectural and technical documentation of the house. The best way to do this is to entrust it to professionals.
- Renovation is a construction style that came to the territory of our country in the 90s from Europe. Such work involves obtaining a functional, practical, environmentally friendly result.
There are also specific features of the work if you plan to repair various housing materials; wooden, monolithic, panel, brick, etc. In this case, the technical characteristics of the various types of construction raw materials from which the real estate was initially built are taken into account.
Scheme of work
The repair of any object must take place according to a strictly approved plan. Only in this case can its high quality be guaranteed, in accordance with the best modern standards.
Visit of a specialist to the object of improvement
A visit from an estimator is entirely free and carried out as quickly as possible. Clients do not need to meet in person to start the process of a home repair, a simple phone call will suffice to get the project started. After agreeing on a convenient time for you, our estimator will come to your project location, and will need to inspect the apartment, assess the scale of work, listen to your wishes and make necessary measurements. The estimator will have all the information regarding the types of services we offer, what technologies we use, how the repair works in general, and the step by step process that will be used. In a word, he will quickly answer any questions that concern you, so do not hesitate to ask them.
The estimator will take the room’s dimensions and listen to all your wishes, upon which he will draw up an estimate. Budgeting is a mandatory step. After the estimator measures the premises’ dimensions and determines what work will need to be done, an estimate will be drawn up, consisting of two sections: one for rough materials, the second for repair and finishing work.
The peculiarity of cooperation with us is that each client can adjust the list of consumables and work to be done. If, for example, you are not satisfied with any material or its proposed type, you can refuse it or demand its replacement (if this does not violate the technology to be used). You can do the same with the works, abandoning them altogether or replacing them with ones better suited to your needs.
