Sooner or later, a decision to make repairs is brewing in any family. This may be due to the purchase of an apartment in the secondary market or in a new building, and then repair is an almost inevitable event, or simply with the desire to transform a familiar and long-lived home.
AS YOU KNOW, REPAIRS CAN BE OF THREE TYPES:
- Cosmetic repairs (whitewashing of the ceiling, change of wallpaper, partial installation of drywall);
- 2. Overhaul (redevelopment, installation of drywall, alignment of floors and walls, replacement of plumbing, wiring, windows and doors);
- 3. Elite repair (European-quality repair) – involves the use of expensive finishing and building materials, interior design according to the design project, complex geometric shapes when installing drywall.
Having decided on the degree of scope of the work, you can dream up – draw a sketch of the future apartment. This is especially important if it is planned to replace furniture, household appliances. You can make the simplest sketch by hand on a piece of paper in a box, and draw on a scale all the objects of the intended situation, not forgetting about the windows, doors and the width of the aisles.
Now that the goals and objectives have been set, and the appearance of the renovated dwelling is already densely stuck in the imagination, we need to wonder who will implement these large-scale plans. There are several options:
- Do it yourself if you own the specialties – installation of drywall, tiler, bricklayer, plumber, electrician, plasterer, painter! And lose peace and sleep for several weeks, or even months.
- Hire “cobbers”;
- Contact the construction and repair company “Mastak-Repair, where there are qualified specialists in the installation of drywall, tilers, electricians, etc.
Undoubtedly, the latter option leads to an increase in costs, but they will pay off handsomely – it will be possible to avoid many problems and pitfalls that a simple layman is not aware of. So, “Mastak-Repair” keeps on staff only professionals in their field, and you can always be sure of the highest quality of their work.

Also, “Mastak-Repair” offers the help of designers, thus providing a full range of room repair services.
THE ENTIRE REPAIR PROCESS CAN BE DIVIDED INTO 3 STAGES – PREPARATORY, MAIN AND FINAL:
1. THE PREPARATORY STAGE IS TO COORDINATE ALL THE NUANCES WITH UTILITIES (DEZ, ZHEU, GREP).
For repair and construction organizations, this procedure is usually already debugged and proceeds without delay. Representatives of the repairing organization will certainly inspect the apartment of the neighbors from below for defects, otherwise all of them, even old ones, may later be presented as a result of your repair activity.
It is necessary to discuss household issues with the workers – to determine for them a place for changing clothes, food, placing tools and building materials.
It is also necessary to think over the process of removal of construction waste – you simply cannot take it to the trash, like household waste.
2. THE MAIN STAGE
Builders believe that the ideal start to repair is when the customer collects all the things and leaves. It may be necessary to rent an apartment for this, but even the costs of renting will be justified: expensive furniture and equipment will not be affected, family members will be able to live in normal conditions, and not in a curtain of gypsum dust, without electricity and with dismantled plumbing, and the terms of work will be reduced for due to the ability to simultaneously repair all rooms. If repairs are carried out in all rooms sequentially, then it makes sense to transfer things from the “processed” room to other rooms.
Usually, repairs begin from the farthest room, and gradually approach the kitchen. First of all, the most “dirty” work is done – those from which the largest amount of garbage remains. This is the dismantling of old wall and ceiling coverings, scrapping unnecessary partitions.
Perhaps the most dusty process is replacing windows. This must be done immediately, because later the appearance of dirt and dust will be unacceptable.
Next in line will be an electrician. Specialists will determine where it is necessary to install additional sockets and make a wiring for them. In order to increase electrical safety, the wiring is pulled through metal pipes, which protects the wires from damage, and also allows you to change them without opening the walls.
What follows is the replacement of heating radiators – also a rather dusty and noisy process, often associated with wall chiselling. Specialists know that at this stage other work should be carried out related to the need to use welding technologies.
Usually, along with this, wiring of new plumbing communications is carried out, as well as other work associated with the repair of the bathroom and toilet.
Then comes the time to align the walls and floors, only after that new doors are installed – otherwise it is likely to make a mistake with the height of the door leaf.
Now it’s up to the putty and whitewashing of the ceiling, and the next important stage, on which the appearance of the living room will largely depend, is the flooring of the laminated parquet or parquet board. Here it is important to make parquet scraping and wallpaper sticker in the correct sequence, which depends on the type of flooring. In any case, repair professionals are aware of these subtleties.
We can say that now there are pleasant little things – wallpaper, installation of sockets and skirting boards, drilling holes for shelves and cornices.
3. FINAL STAGE THE APARTMENT IS FREED FROM THE REMAINING CONSTRUCTION WASTE, LAUNDERED AND PREPARED TO APPEAR BEFORE THE OWNER IN AN UPDATED FORM.
