Flat renovation: how many materials do I have to buy?

Before starting the renovation, carefully write down all materials needed for its proper execution. Accurate dimensioning of the rooms is extremely important so that we can calculate the right amount of materials and do not expose ourselves to additional costs. Plan in order to keep a certain stock of materials, especially when it comes to tiles, terracotta or small building materials such as nails or screws. Usually, you need to buy 10-15% more materials than the quantity resulting from your measurements. Thanks to this, You might avoid unnecessary trips to the stores, which will also drag out the time of your renovation work.

Shopping is worth consulting with a trusted and experienced renovation company.

Thanks to their many years of experience, advice from specialized renovation companies on the selection of the best finishing materials can be priceless. Before making a purchase, we recommend asking sellers about any warranties, complaints and if the option of returning unused goods is considered. If you do not have enough funds to fully cover the costs of an apartment renovation, consider taking out a loan for this purpose. In the case of apartments bought from the primary market, these funds are usually granted together with a mortgage. When planning a home renovation, higher costs should be expected.
