Is your house going to be renovated? Where to start, how to finish, how to carry out the work so that one does not interfere with the other and does not spoil it? First of all, it is necessary to draw up at least an approximate plan of all work, to draw up an estimate of costs. It should cover all planned activities, including dismantling of old elements - batteries, lamps, window sills, switches.
In the event that it is planned to replace the interroom and entrance doors, windows, it is important not to forget about the subsequent cleaning and disposal of construction waste. This is a pretty big expense to consider.
Before starting construction activities, it is necessary to determine the amount of work to be done and their approximate cost, and correlate them with your own capabilities.
It is highly undesirable to make significant adjustments after the start of work. All important design decisions are made and approved in advance, because it is not always possible to change them later, but it is almost always expensive.
Usually, after completing the preparatory phase, the homeowner finds himself in an empty room, in front of completely bare walls. It is still quite difficult for him to navigate the forthcoming volume of work and expenses. But he already has an idea of what color solutions are preferable for him, where what will be located, in what part of the house household and other appliances will be installed.
You need to pay attention to the number and location of windows, the level of natural illumination, because from this the need for artificial lighting in the room depends. Why is it important? The fact is that any repairs most often begin by replacing or re-equipping power grids , including the future location of lighting fixtures, sockets and switches. This also applies to old, already inhabited houses, and not so long ago.
Today, any average household has many different techniques that need a powerful, optimized branch network. Additional sockets and numerous extension cords are very inconvenient to use.
If an air conditioning system is supposed to be installed, then it is carried out in the same period. At the same time, all the necessary fasteners for the heating system are prepared.
In parallel, a number of works related to drilling, chiselling, making recesses, grooves and boles are performed ...
This also includes other works, in the process of which it is necessary to "disfigure" the ceiling, walls and floor, as a result of which a large amount of various construction debris is formed: dust, pieces of gypsum, brick and concrete.
When all this debris has been removed , you can start preparing the subfloor.
There are different options:
The next stage of work refers to the windows. They are replaced if necessary.
If they fully satisfy the homeowner, then he simply checks the sealing of cracks, the presence and condition of thermal insulation and window slopes. It is also checked whether the doors close and open well, whether there are distortions and other defects. After plastering and painting, it will be much more difficult to put them in order.
It is advisable to protect the inner window sills with a film from splashes of finishing compounds. This type of work is allowed to be carried out when installing doors, but the proposed option is more practical.
If the walls in the house need alignment and other necessary procedures, then the amount of compounds and mixtures required for this must be calculated in advance.
Although the price of modern materials is quite high, you should always purchase them with at least a small margin.
Materials tend to end unexpectedly at the wrong time - it is advisable to protect yourself from this.
Various fundamental questions constantly arise before the owners.
What comes first - putty walls or floor screed?
There can be no two answers to this question: Before moving on to decorating the walls, you need to complete preparatory work with floor .
After cleaning, it should be prepared for the final decorative coating.
The very same coating, regardless of its type and type, is done in the last turn . This applies to self-leveling floors, parquet, laminate, linoleum and other types of it.
And at this stage, the prepared base is protected with a film, cardboard or several layers of newspapers. This will greatly facilitate subsequent cleaning and cleaning.
Before moving on to plastering work, you should complete all the proposed activities with drywall. Niches, additional partitions, functional and decorative details are finished completely before moving on to the next stage of finishing work - "wet" . It is advisable to perform all works of this kind within one working cycle, so as not to return to them again later.
Then you can prevent errors during their installation, as well as get the minimum the gap between the floor plane or threshold and door leaves.
Door assembly is a high-tech process that does not use glue and compounds that can stain or ruin the new floor.
The tools used, provided they are handled skillfully and carefully, are also not capable of damaging it.
This refers specifically to the door.
However, it is quite possible to mount the door frame a little earlier, even before aligning the walls . In this case, flaws, defects and cracks near the opening will be reliably masked.
If the existing walls do not need improvement, being even and smooth so, the installation of the box can be carried out later.
If the box is pre-installed, remember to consider the thickness of the potential floor covering.
Any finishing wall covering is glued before work begins on the final (decorative) finishing of the floor ...
The same applies to painting the walls.
Although the opinions of experts sometimes differ. Adherents of a different method are sure that wallpaper should be dealt with after finishing work on the floor and fixing the ceiling plinth. They believe that wall decoration can be easily replaced at any time without touching the baseboards above and below.
In their opinion, it is enough to evenly cut the edges of the wallpaper along the skirting boards on both sides.
Go to painting the ceiling after finishing fixing the ceiling plinth.
With this order of work, it is quite convenient to fix all the irregularities and defects in their connections, and only after that paint the ceiling and baseboard in one go. The simultaneous coloring allows them to look solid and elegant.
If we talk about sequence of repairing an old house , it is worth stopping at the installation of a stretch ceiling.
This element, which has become familiar, enjoys steady popularity. The specificity of the arrangement of such ceilings allows their installation at the final stage of all activities , after wallpapering or painting wall surfaces.
The installation of the ceiling can be considered a clean undertaking that does not pose a threat of damage to the floor or walls.
The principle of "top-down" priority does not apply to this case. It applies mainly to the usual repair work. The emergence of new technologies brought some changes to their course. Even the teams involved in the installation of stretch ceilings suggest inviting them to actually complete the repair.
Let's try to make a short list of the order of work in any given room of the house. So:
Of course, this order cannot be considered an axiom. Various reasons, including the original technology or the characteristics of the materials used, may disturb it more or less.
All specialists choose their own algorithm of actions, which is convenient for them in each specific case.
But the approximate sequence of events may be just that.
