We are carrying out a partial renovation in a semi-detached villa in Béhobie (France).
The client contacts us after finding our website on the Internet and having a positive rating of our company for the work presented there.
It is a villa with a ground floor and two floors of 170 square meters.
The owners wish, in principle, to carry out a comprehensive reform (change of windows, doors, kitchen, bathrooms, painting, etc.), except to change the electrical installation.
However, after having inspected the whole house, we find that the first thing to do is to change all the electrical installation of the whole house because it does not comply with the regulations in force. We explained to the client that it is essential to start there, because if they don't do it now and leave it for later, it will spoil the paint and masonry job. In the end, that would be a waste of money and a double job.
The customer's final decision is that we do the electrical work first. Then change all the windows and repaint the whole house, including the radiators which are each a different color,
The works which, in principle, had to be carried out on the first floor (renovation of the kitchen and on the second floor (renovation of the bathrooms)) are postponed.
After signing the budget and the contract with ARIZAGA CR, S.L, we proceed to the protection of furniture and furnishings to avoid damaging them.

The electrical installation is obsolete and dangerous because it does not comply with current regulations.
The electrical panel doesn't even have a DISYUNTOOR DIFERENCIAL GFCI, which works by shutting off the current if there is a difference in the amperage (measured in Amps) of the current going into the house and that going out. The differential circuit breaker opens and its function is to protect people.
This electrical panel does not have thermal-magnetic circuit breakers either, which cut off the power supply either because a certain circuit is overloaded, or because a short-circuit occurs in the installation. The thermal-magnetic circuit breaker opens and its function is to protect the electrical installation of the house and the electrical devices.
Regarding the electrical installation pannel, we start with the electrical panel. We install a differential circuit breaker and independent magnetothermal circuit breakers for each service, in accordance with the regulations. We install a new corrugated tube (independent for each service, be it lighting, general sockets, oven, washing machine, etc.) throughout the house, recessed in the walls and hidden in the false ceiling, then we introduce the new cable, of different sections - depending on its destination (lighting, oven, etc.) - because we have no guarantee as to its condition or thickness, or that the cable could tear.
We never take advantage of previous conductions.
Kitchen: installation of sockets for the vitro, oven and washing machine. One line for each device.
- Kitchen: installation of 8 sockets, 1 switch and 2 light points.
- Bathroom 1. Installation of 2 sockets, 1 switch and 4 light points.
- Bathroom 2. Installation of 2 sockets, 1 switch and 2 light points.
- Living room: installation of 8 sockets, 3 switches, 2 light points, 1 TV antenna socket and an optical fiber connection for internet access.
- Room 1: installation of 4 sockets, 3 switches, 2 light points, 1 TV antenna socket and an optical fiber connection for internet access.
- Room 2: installation of 4 sockets, 2 switches, 3 light points, 1 TV antenna outlet and a fiber optic connection for internet access.
- Hall: Installation of 4 sockets, 3 switches and 2 light points.
- Mezzanine: installation of 4 sockets, 2 switches, 1 TV antenna outlet and 3 light points.
The house's original wooden windows were in a sorry state.
We changed the windows of the whole house.
The installation of windows, window-doors were done using steel anchors, stainless steel screws and then we used polyurethane foam insulation. Finally we covered with waterproof concrete to finish the exterior walls.
We have installed PVC windows from the leading brand CORTIZO THERMOTEC (white interior and green exterior), with 5 insulating chambers, with galvanized steel reinforcements, triple glazing, butyral stadip and argon gas chamber.
They incorporate the highest quality Tilt & Turn system and Roto Frank fittings which guarantee perfect operation for decades with a very high degree of comfort.
To reduce heat ingress from the outside, we have installed glass with a low emission treatment (silver oxide treated glass) which reduces up to 80% the amount of heat (infrared rays) that enters the house. This treatment blocks infrared radiation, which carries the energy of sunlight without limiting the amount or tone of light that enters.
In addition, we used glasses with ARGON gas, instead of the air in the chamber between the three glasses, in order to significantly lower the μ coefficient. The explanation is physical simple: the transmission of cold - heat from one glass to another is produced by internal currents that exist in the chamber between the glasses. Argon is a gas much heavier than air and therefore because it takes longer to heat up or cool down, currents and heat transfer will take longer. The result is that we get a significantly lower μ coefficient.
Throughout the house, ceilings and walls. Removal of gotelé and / or wallpaper; Elimination of cracks and plaster of walls.
We had to lay Plasterboard on galvanized steel rails on the living room ceiling because the whole ceiling was spattered with concrete and it was impossible to sand it due to its great hardness.
Then we put joints in the Plasterboard to prevent the appearance of cracks. After, once dry, we sanded the entire surface before painting and sanding everything afterwards. To do this work we used a device called the giraffe.
Application of matt white paint, first we applied a coat of primer and finished with three coats to obtain a perfect finish.
We took apart, sanded and cleaned the wooden shutters before painting them. We scraped away loose peeling paint and cracks, then filled with wood filler and wood glue, sanded and painted with a synthetic enamel made from very tough resins and polyurethanes. Previously, we applied one coat of primer and then two coats of Basque green oil paint Ref. : RAL 6009
We used Premium paints - SEIGNEURIE, TOLLENS, VALENTINE, CAPAROL brands, etc. - at the customer's choice.
Finally, we remove all the remains of materials, tools, etc. and thoroughly clean the semi-detached house before it is delivered to the client.
END OF THE WORKS.
So we come to the end of the work and deliver the chalet completely clean. Ready to move in.
The customer was completely satisfied with the end result, the respect of the promised deadlines and the treatment received by our company.
