The order of the finishing works
When purchasing bullion or Predchistovaya housing, final finish will have to do yourself. To do this, make work schedule, procedure.
The work should start with the dirtiest work, or wet and keep it from top to bottom, ie ceiling, walls and floors. electrical connection (sockets and switches) and plumbing (mixers and devices) It should be at the very end.
If you plan some hidden communications, they must lay before the finishing.
Before you begin the final process of repair, to be understood, what Predchistovaya swollen apartments. obviously, something, it was made and what materials were used for that, It affects the quality of finishing. If pedchistovaya processing performed for a long time or from substandard materials, then it is better to convert.

Apartment for finishing - it is a complete home, Therefore, the ceiling should be smooth and beautiful. according to GOST, it should not deviate from the horizontal by more than 15 mm. If minor deviations, it is possible to align them with the help of plaster. If large deviations, then align useless. Then it is better to use Bole radical method - plasterboard ceilings, established in several tiers. So will hide imperfections and show global designer fantasies.
Fine finishing the apartment must be driven at a high quality surface. Therefore, if the ceiling is already some kind of coating, who have served their sentences, it must be removed.

If the wall has a significant deviations in the evenness, you need to do is similar to the ceiling - cover it with plasterboard, to hide the curvature. However, this will have to sacrifice the space of the room.
Perform final finishing of floors in the apartment can be a wide variety of materials:
But again, selection must be done depending on the functionality of the room.
Apartments with a fine finish usually with a coupler, which makes the surface smooth enough, to create a layer of self-leveling floor. But if there is no screed, then it is necessary to create. It is required for all the flooring. floor screed must conceal irregularities to 6 cm.
