Planning an apartment renovation can be compared to preparing a large-scale offensive operation on several fronts. Here it is important not only to correctly calculate the forces and means, to determine the number of pieces of equipment, but also to correctly adjust the timing of the crushing blow to the "enemy". So when is the best time to start renovation work?
Where to start repairing an apartment
First, determine what kind of renovation you intend to do. If the event involves only replacing windows or radiators, it is better to set aside one of the summer months for this. In the warm season, it is also recommended to seal cracks in the walls, update plumbing, repair in the bathroom, since during such repairs it will be necessary to turn off the hot water supply.
When choosing the timing of the repair, keep in mind that many building materials are designed for use in the positive temperature range, otherwise they may lose their useful properties. This applies to some types of building mixtures and paints and varnishes. Take an interest in the specified properties when purchasing materials.
If you strive to make repairs cheaper, postpone some of the work for the winter period, since at this time some construction and repair services cost significantly less. For the autumn-winter period, you can plan, for example, laying parquet or laminate, replacing linoleum.
For winter or spring time, schedule preparatory work - planning the design of the renovated apartment, purchasing the necessary materials and household appliances. With the beginning of the summer season, as a rule, prices for finishing materials rise slightly.
If it is not possible to carry out a quick one-time repair, break the entire scope of work into several stages. Carry out some of the repair measures in the summer, and transfer some operations to a colder season. Works such as wallpapering the room, painting walls and ceilings, laying tiles can be carried out at any time of the year.
The installation of air conditioning systems, involving the installation of an external unit, as well as the arrangement of a balcony or loggia, should be carried out in the warm season. Otherwise, you will not be able to maintain the temperature regime in the living room during the work. In some cases, it is possible to carry out many works in the winter, if for the period of repair it is possible to move the whole family to rented housing. Now you know when to renovate your apartment. You can read the article on how to start renovating an apartment.
We organize and plan control
Since you will not be able to quit your job for 2-3 months in order to devote yourself to all the issues of supervision over the performed repair operations, only clear planning and organization will help you to save this situation.
If you cannot visit the facility every day, then you need to decide on the moments when you simply cannot do without your presence. You must clearly understand the purpose of each visit to the site. Because just dropping in to watch, without a specific purpose, is like leaving your object without any control.
A work schedule should be drawn up for you, this will be one of the most optimal ways to resolve this issue. You must obtain this document from the organization with which you are dealing, along with the contract and estimate. It will be best for you if the firm makes the work schedule an integral part of the contract. Since after that they will be obliged to comply with their obligations.
By this, the company immediately sets up its workers in a serious way, and you will be able to control all the deadlines for the completion of construction operations, at absolutely any stage of their production. Since it will be completely obvious to everyone that if the workers are late with the erection of partitions by a week, then wallpapering will also be late, and the delivery of the object in this case will move because of this indefinitely.
Be aware that construction work is a very complex technological process, and it is not always possible to accelerate it by adding several workers to the site with the transition to a three-shift from a two-shift work schedule. Such a concept as a "technological cycle" in construction is of great importance.
With the work schedule on hand, you can already do something.
First, you can easily identify control points. That is, what operations and when will you check for compliance with the deadlines and, accordingly, monitor the quality.
For example, if waterproofing of bathrooms is carried out in your living room, it is natural to check its quality before it is hidden under a layer of cement screed. And in order for you to be able to check the quality of the screed itself, you must be on site until the moment when they start laying parquet or installing tiles.
With such a schedule on hand, this is not difficult to do. You just have to look when the operation should be completed, after which you will check its quality. You will inform the hired specialists that you will be on site after such a time to check the quality of work. They are not allowed to perform those operations that hide from you the results of the work performed that you are going to check.
Usually, the execution of those works, which are then hidden under the execution of others, in construction are called "hidden works". Their implementation must be recorded in great detail by special acts. These are generally accepted measures in construction practice.
Of course, builders will claim that you are delaying them with your checks anyway. Only you need to be tough. Both you and the builders should be aware that the schedule indicates the time frame for any work to be done, for example, July 27th. Your arrival in the evening of the same day by no means will delay the builders. Only in this case, you will be held responsible. You can’t be late with checks, let alone postpone them. If you do this, the builders' claims will be substantiated.
But it also happens that in some cases, construction work is carried out a little earlier than the deadlines indicated in the schedule, and sometimes vice versa, sometimes it is a little delayed. In such cases, you must be notified in advance, by the foreman or foreman, so that you can postpone the inspection date to another day. Only here you need to understand in detail the reasons for the failure to meet the deadlines. What will the builders do if they have strayed from the work schedule in order to deliver the object on time? And won't all this go to the detriment of quality.
True, I can reassure you to some extent. Just one thing that you will be vigilant about their work, will save you in most cases from a lot of problems.
The current law on silence in the Moscow region
Many factors affect the quality of life of citizens. Of course, first of all, this is health, relationships with loved ones, material and social well-being, etc.
Conditions for a normal life should be ensured by laws adopted by deputies of all levels. This is their job, and in this they are responsible to the inhabitants.
The current situation is such that the ruling party is pushing through anti-popular laws that constantly worsen and complicate people's lives.
The law "on silence" of the Russian Federation provides for a restriction on the noise level depending on the time of day: at night from 23.00 to 7.00 - no more than 40 dB, in the afternoon from 7.00 to 23.00 - no more than 80-100 dB.
The volume of 40 dB is ordinary speech without a pronounced emotional coloring, heard at a distance, a loud whisper, rustling of leaves or the sound of a refrigerator. A noise level of 80-100 dB is a piano playing, music from a radio, shouting, punching sound, or a car siren.
More about the administrative fine for breaking silence at night
The aforementioned law states that living quarters must be operated in accordance with sanitary standards, which include the permissible sound level (cl.
3 article 23). The norms themselves are spelled out in CH2.2.4 / 22.214.171.1242-96, where the tables describe the levels of permissible noise in various rooms.
Despite the sound levels of 40 and 30 decibels specified in the sanitary standards, administrative liability is most likely to occur only if the noise limit values of 60 or more decibels are exceeded.
Holidays are meant for relaxation, so it's best to postpone the drill. At the same time, the law makes an exception for new houses.
In new buildings, within a year and a half after their commissioning, it will be possible to carry out repair work in the daytime. Such houses will not be subject to restrictions on the days of the week. - I would like to remind you that it is still impossible to repair, as well as sing drunken songs, listen to music or TV loudly from 23.
In the daytime, there is a certain limitation of the noise level, although the criterion for determining this level is quite subjective. There is a certain regulation according to which the owner of the dwelling or the tenant should not create an increased level of noise that interferes with normal rest and violates the living conditions of other residents.
So if neighbors create conditions that interfere with your normal rest and your peace of mind, you have a legal right to demand that the noise level be reduced.
A ban has been introduced on carrying out construction, repair, loading and unloading operations from 21:00 pm to 8:00 am, violating the peace and quiet of residents. The exceptions are emergency and rescue operations.
Also, violations of peace and quiet include the use of televisions, tape recorders, radio receivers and other sound-reproducing devices in residential premises at high volume. How are you, poor things, you fly in an airplane and ride a train.
