Redecoration – the concept is absolutely vague, someone means by this phrase re-gluing the wallpaper, and someone is trying to change the floors and windows in the apartment. One way or another, apartment renovation is still carried out, and each of us in the house has it at least once, but it took place. The main thing to understand is that the alteration of capital structures is absolutely not connected with cosmetic work, there is a major overhaul for this. That is, we do not change the wiring, all the radiators and windows, we do not change the floors and do not change the doorways, we just update the appearance in the room a little.
As a rule, it is customary to encounter cosmetic repairs no more than 1-2 times a year, this of course depends on your capabilities, both physical and material.
