Let’s talk about the most common reasons why the repair is delayed. Some of them are very difficult to fight, but you can try.
You always want to finish repairs as soon as possible! But not everyone manages to strictly adhere to the preliminary plan and schedule.
How to finish the repair as soon as possible
Let’s start with the most common option – funding has ended. Simply, there is no more money to continue the renovation work. There is nothing to buy drywall, plaster, pay a tiler, an electrician, and so on. It’s not scary if the delay in money happened once and for a good reason. But if it becomes a system, the repair will take a long time!
We strongly recommend that you make a preliminary estimate and calculate your strength before starting the repair. Yes, costs can be stretched over time, buying the necessary materials, for example, from the next salary. But we still need a supply for urgent, necessary things, without which work will stop for a long time.
The second important point is ordering windows. It will take at least two weeks to wait for new double-glazed windows in the “high” season, when there are most orders. If you have a complex order, for example, panoramic windows, the profile is not standard white, but wood-like, the production time may increase. Until the windows are installed, you will not proceed to finishing. So make an order in advance, checking the deadline for delivery and installation of windows with the manufacturer.
The third reason for the delay in repairs is the purchase of an insufficient amount of materials. If you run out of floor tiles, you haven’t calculated it – and you run around shops looking for the same batch. And the work is worth it. The same can happen with wallpaper, plaster, even the simplest, but so necessary screws.
Yes, if a hardware store is nearby, it’s not a problem just to go to buy the necessary one. And if renovation in the country? Or do you need to find wallpapers with just such a pattern, but they are not? Therefore, always take finishing and consumables with at least a small margin.
The fourth reason that can seriously delay the repair work is problems with the contractor, with the team of executors. The Rmnt.ru portal devoted a detailed article to the selection of workers for repairs in a private house or apartment. Even if you did everything right, according to our advice, force majeure can happen to the contractor.
The master will really be with “golden hands”, but will suddenly go into a binge. It happens. Do not lose sight of the workers, control the work process. Do not interfere with all the details, you are not a professional, but do not let it go by itself.
The fifth reason for delaying repair work is the rules and regulations for their implementation. It is forbidden to make noise after 7 pm and until 9 am! And on weekends, holidays, you need to let the neighbors sleep. Of course, you can warn them that the apartment is being renovated. But there is no guarantee that someone will not want to complain about the noise of the hammer drill at lunchtime when young children are sleeping. So this reason cannot be ignored, the norms must be observed. Take breaks, immediately set a schedule for yourself and your work schedule, keep in mind that no one will work around the clock anyway.
The sixth reason is custom-made furniture. Experts are unanimous – you need to order a kitchen, dressing room, wardrobe or living room wall after finishing rough finishing work. In this case, the measurements will be clear, already taking into account the aligned walls and floor screed. So you won’t be able to order in advance if you want to, you will have to wait for the furniture, often a month. Until it is installed, there is no need to talk about the completion of the repair.
What advice can you give to everyone who plans to finish the renovation as soon as possible? Even in the case of hiring a team of workers, be always in touch, do not leave, hoping that they will cope without you. Sharp questions may arise that can only be resolved by the owner. In addition, calculate the finances, make a plan, negotiate with suppliers and manufacturers in time so that the delivery of the necessary materials and furniture does not drag out. And please be patient! Overhaul is in any case not two days, it is serious. published by econet.ru
