What is the point to start repairs from?
Features of floors repairs. There are two main types of floors repairs: cardinal or partial. Cardinal includes floors leveling and then new flooring arrangement. Partial (or as it is also called, cosmetics) includes the replacement of flooring only: whether it is a linoleum or a laminate. The choice should be made on the basis of your budget and current state of the floor.
Features of walls repairs. Before starting walls repairs, they need to be leveled, but you will need a level and leveling compound for that. If the walls are very uneven, it is necessary to use a cement if there are minor surface imperfections then it is recommended to use a plaster. Use putty in order to achieve perfectly smooth surface for subsequent painting.
Proper repair of a ceiling. Despite the fact that the ceilings in Calgary apartments are, as a rule, in good condition, we would still advise you to prefer stretch ceilings for living premises and plastic ones for bathrooms and toilets (so you can wash them). Such ceilings look more modern and have built-in lights that allows you not to install additional chandeliers and lampshades.
Replacement of windows. If you still have old windows, we strongly recommend you to replace them with new, vinyl ones, which provide much better sound and heat insulation. If not to replace the windows, you can not even think about air conditioner or auxiliary heating installation, since heat in winter and cold air in summer will escape through the windows in poor condition.
