Renovation of the villa: what is it and what is included in it
Comfort and coziness in the villa largely determine the quality of human life. In order for the house to be a favorite haven, a place of rest, you need to properly care for it: to maintain cleanliness and order. However, over time, the paint finishes fade, and small scratches, stains or cracks spoil the appearance of even a carefully cleaned villa. In order to return the dwelling to its former luster, add novelty and freshness to the interior, it will be necessary to make cosmetic repairs. To achieve the goal with minimal costs, you should first understand: what is a facelift and what investments (financial, temporary) are ahead. Without a clear action plan, it’s easy to get bogged down in large financial expenses, since cosmetic work can smoothly turn into capital: this is facilitated by a wide selection of materials and accessories, the purchase of which can be difficult to refuse.
What is a cosmetic repair
The name “cosmetic” speaks for itself. This type of repair is used to restore beauty without redevelopment of the villa, a deep replacement of water supply, electrical wiring and plumbing. In this part, they are limited to updating external accessories: sockets, switches, faucets – that is, they change what spoils the beauty due to deterioration or unsightly appearance.
Redecorating initially involves minimal costs, but it can be expensive, since the cost of some modern finishing materials of the luxury class is quite high. All repair and finishing work is usually divided into types according to the degree of complexity and the materials used.
This type of repair is done periodically every 2-3 years. In this type of construction work, materials similar to those with which the room was decorated are used. Thanks to simple cosmetic repairs, the villa returns its lost purity and freshness, and the use of materials of other colors and textures allows you to change the style of your home: after boring colors, the avant-garde drawing on the wall will tell the room a completely different sound.
Simple repair goes into the category of “difficult”, if in addition to painting and wallpapering, it is assumed:
- replacement of finishing openings (windows, doors);
- change of flooring (tiles, linoleum, laminate);
- tiling kitchen, bathroom.
Do-it-yourself redecoration is not a difficult task. However, it is cheaper to hire a specialist for tiling and stickers for “heavy” wallpapers (metal, vinyl, photos) that require improved wall preparation (leveling, puttying): there is a high risk of damage to expensive material, and the fruits of independent work can disappoint, since even the most beautiful finish material can be ruined by inaccurate / inept application.
This is the name for updating the premises with the help of materials and technologies that have come to us from European countries. These materials include:
- eurowindows – frames from aluminum-plastic profile;
- PVC panels;
- imported laminate and linoleum;
- plastic skirting boards;
- interior doors made of plates covered with veneer (artificial or natural);
- stretch ceiling.
The production of euro materials has long been mastered by Asian manufacturers, but the repair with their use has retained its name. European-quality repair is an opportunity to quickly change the appearance of a room with the help of easy-to-install elements, but they still attribute it to the complex type of cosmetic repairs.
The disadvantage of European-quality repair is the need to hire truly experienced specialists in this field. Global Bali Service employs just such specialists who have passed European training and internships. Of course, any specialist who is familiar with a screwdriver and a drill can screw drywall on their own, hang doors or assemble a rack ceiling. But some of the nuances of execution come with experience, so the result when conducting a European-quality repair will, with rare exceptions, not be so perfect. Do not save on quality and order professional euro repair from specialists in your field.
It includes whitewashing / painting / wallpapering of one room or part of it, for example, a person who suffered from a ceiling flooding. Simple redecorating a room is considered small-term if you only need to whitewash the ceiling and wallpaper the walls when there is no need to repair cracks, putty, and enamel the windows, doors, floors.
Cosmetic repairs are done regularly for reasons of hygiene and renovation.
Interestingly, due to the development of production technologies for building materials, the time until the next cosmetic repair increases. So, our grandmothers had to whiten the ceilings 1-2 times a year, and modern finishing materials, such as panels, plastic, special ceiling paints, are easy to wash, keep color for a long time, so their service life is quite long.
Stages of redecorating
Planning is a necessary part of cosmetic work, which allows you to make the repair result pleasing for a long time. Over the years, repairs are not uncommon.
So that the process does not grow into a chronic one, you need to:
- Decide on the design, choose the color and texture of finishing materials.
- Measure all areas: ceiling, walls, floors.
- Estimate the cost of materials.
- Calculate the amount that will be required to pay for the work of specialists.
- To summarize the costs, make adjustments to the estimate, if there is a lack of finance, replace the materials with budget ones, delete some of the work.
- To prepare an apartment: if possible, take out furniture.
- Purchase everything you need, start repair work.
In the concept of redecorating, there are 2 basic rules for the order of work:
- From dirty (if the project provides for such work – laying tiles, replacing windows, doors) to clean ones.
- From top to bottom (first the ceiling, then the walls).
Note: many at the time of repair rent a house or move to relatives. If this is not possible, then the work is carried out in turn: first, they redecorate the room that is most needed. After graduation, they live in it and gradually, without fuss, finish the rest of the premises
