Suggestion made by Contractorbhai Team

For total renovation 2-3 points are necessary

Firstly when you do demolition in flat or bungalow pest control must be done for termite(dimak) proof. Second when you do plumbing work first test if water proofing is done or undergo a test leakage by pouring water for 3-4 days. Third for any strong>wood work, check if its termite proof wood material you have selected. If not use termite application and than go ahead with wood work.


Bathroom & Toilet Re-do in Navi Mumbai

I want to renovate bathroom which has attached toilet. I intend to do everything right from having an english toilet to latest bath fittings and tiles along with a new door. My bathroom is about 4ft x 7ft.
(hot and cold water options with shower. English toilet, new bathroom door, tiles and fixtures.)

Suggestion made by Contractorbhai Team

Having an English toilet/commode, especially a wall mounted with flush tank is nice to have for modern bathrooms. You can have aluminum door or PP-R (Polypropylene Random Copolymer) which is ready-made flush door panel for bathroom door. For hot and cold water there is ready-made wall mixer available in market you can use it.

Flooring for Kitchen, platform (Black granite)tiles into Kitchen area two walls tiling (one into living room and another into bedroom)Window Grills Painting – Asian royals with two designer walls. false ceiling for entire 340 sq.ft area)

Suggestion made by Contractorbhai Team

Having wall tile for kitchen is a great idea especially when it comes to maintenance. But for painting i suggest you to confirm with your contractor if he is going to apply base coat and then apply 3 coats of paint over base coat. 3 coats of paint is must to receive smooth desired shade and finish. Few contractor cheat home owners by applying only 2 coat of paint and show the rate for 3 coat and paint.


Flooring work in Dilsukh Nagar, Hyderabad

Presently I am having mosaic flooring for flat of 900 sqt including common area. We can take 750 Sft for my flat which is in Hyderabad dilsukhnagar area.(want to replace with while marbles or tiles)

Suggestion made by Contractorbhai Team

For mosaic flooring, if you wish you can apply tiles on mosaic flooring using chemicals. This will be cost effective affair as compared to white marble and any other tiles for flooring. For marble flooring, you will have to firstly get the existing floor scrapped/broken and then get into the process of laying marble.

For flooring of 3 bedrooms, living room and kitchen you can use 30″ x 30″ tiles. For bathroom flooring use 2′ x 1′ tiles and for wall use 2′ x 2′ tiles. For interior painting use Asian Paints luster. You can get zinc applied before paint to protect from dampness.

    Need to change the tiles of 3 bhk flat(1700 sq ft) for removing of old tiles is there any other method instead if hammering ,that will not cause any problem to the lower flat members

      It depends on how good previous flooring work was done. I have seen many homes where old flooring work had poor quality cement proportion & hence after initial few hammering(loud noise making) it was possible to simply push tools below fixed tiles, twist & remove it apart. In any case, there will be noise. You you are breaking floor, it is core civil work. You have to request neighbors they will understand.
