In order for the cost of repairs at the end of the work not to be a surprise for you, it is very important to correctly draw up an estimate for repair and finishing work.
If you decide to entrust the repair and decoration of the premises to the company, and not do everything yourself, a detailed estimate must be developed by specialists at the first stage, approved, and the cost according to the estimate must be fixed.
HOW IS THE ESTIMATE FOR REPAIRING THE PREMISES DEVELOPED?
As a rule, an estimate for the repair of a room is compiled on the basis of a defective statement and a design project. The defect list includes all detected defects in the premises and their volume. A design project is necessary to evaluate the volume of redevelopment, plans for rooms, floors and ceiling structures, electrical plans and other things.
Based on the defective statement and the design project, a list of works and necessary building materials for repair and finishing work is compiled.
WHAT DOES THE ESTIMATE CONSIST OF?
The repair estimate consists of three main blocks: building materials, work, transportation costs.
- In the block “building materials” all the necessary materials (primer, putty, self-leveling floor, wallpaper, etc.), quantity and price are indicated. The building materials block also includes consumables (brushes, gloves, protective film, etc.).
- The “works” block lists all the work that needs to be carried out to implement the design project: from preparatory to finishing.
This block of estimates can be divided into groups, which are determined by the type of premises and the required amount of work. First, general works are listed: installation / dismantling of partitions, installation of window blocks, window sills, ventilation systems, etc., as well as electrical and plumbing work. The estimate then lists a list, a clear description, and the total cost of the work for each room in the apartment.
Also, the estimate may include garbage disposal and cleaning after repair.
- The “transport costs” block describes the costs that will be required for the purchase and lifting of building materials, garbage disposal, and others.
The budget should be as detailed as possible. Be sure to check with the contractor whether all the work that is necessary for the repair is included in the estimate so that the final cost does not increase several times upon completion of the repair.
Upon completion of the repair and finishing, the work is also accepted according to the estimate. Both parties sign an act of completed work.
