Initially, we were looking for repairs in popular companies that do typical turnkey repairs without involving the customer's time (PIK Repair, Sdelano, Quadrium, etc.).
We work a lot and live an hour's drive from the renovated apartment, and there was no desire to get involved in the renovation, we wanted to approve the project and come to pick up the keys to the finished apartment. It is important that "repair for delivery" for us did not mean "cheap repairs", it meant maximum quality, durability at a reasonable price of materials.
As a result, it turned out that the repair in all these companies has many restrictions on the scope of work, materials, time, and in general it did not seem that they were somehow motivated to pay attention to the client. And the minimum estimate they had was 1.7 million rubles for our 48 sq. m.
We began to look for other companies by acquaintances. We talked with several foremen on the recommendation of friends - we realized that everything is as usual: it's not clear how much it will cost, how much time it will take, buy materials ourselves, etc. A couple of times we faced the fact that prices were blatantly lied to us - prices who were named were 2-3 times lower than the cost of work (we think it is good), which meant one thing: the brigades wanted nothing to take an order, and when the fact of work starts to grow, they begin to refer to uneven walls and other nonsense. We sighed and decided to wait until autumn with the beginning of the renovation.
In the summer, by chance, friends who recently made repairs in 2 apartments advised Domeo.
No longer believing in miracles, we still did not expect that to do everything without our participation and how we want it will not work. Yes, and there were not many reviews on the Internet, but they believed old friends.
The start was optimistic. The measurer arrived quickly and on time, the cost estimate seemed reasonable. But these were all estimates, we wanted to plan everything exactly. But to guarantee the accuracy of the estimate, Domeo strongly recommended to make a design project (these are not just pictures with the color of the wallpaper, but detailed schemes for the demolition and construction of partitions, water and electricity distribution, a diagram of floors, walls, sockets, air conditioners with selected furniture and plumbing fixtures and flowers ).
We agreed, we did it (the designer managed to fit a dressing room even in 48 sq. M.) And Domeo clarified the estimate and signed a contract.
We met with the foreman for the first time on November 19, 2019 and yesterday (April 11, 2020) they took the keys. In total, we saw Maxim 3 times during the entire repair, the rest of the time Maxim came to the workers himself, followed everything, sent pictures to whataspp.
Also, Maxim himself calculated and purchased all the rough materials (they have everything according to the standards and technologies that were told about at the start), we ordered the final ones using the links from the design project, and the builders accepted them.
All repairs were done by one team of very cool craftsmen. Before acceptance, technical supervision from the company comes.
You can see the result in the photo before and after.
The most surprising thing for me is 100% getting into the estimate (additional to the estimate - these are our additional wishes during the repair like an aqua watchman, washing the glass from the paint from the outside and other little things). Total turnkey with all materials, works (they are less than half the cost) and plumbing - 1.4 million rubles, which is not a lot for such quality and service!
We'll turn to you again!
