The question of uniting a room and a loggia becomes especially relevant if you live in a small apartment.
This redevelopment allows to increase the useful area of the apartment and a growing number of people are eager to take advantage of this opportunity.
However, it should be noted that this type of redevelopment, despite its popularity, is one of the most difficult and responsible.
Get an official permit forRe-planning The joining of the loggia to the room refers to the redevelopment, for which it is necessary to obtain coordination in the interdepartmental commission at the prefecture of the district. If you ignore this rule, then later, in any action with real estate - sale, exchange, contract of donation - there can be serious problems. Invite a professional engineer or architect to make the necessary calculations, draft a redevelopment and prepare the necessary documents for approval.
Thoroughly inspect the fence of the loggia. If necessary, place a brick with a drainage point of water. Carefully cement all small cracks.
Install the window units. When connecting the loggia to the room, it is recommended to use double-glazed double-glazed windows with triple glazing to improve the thermal insulation properties of the room.
Remove the old window blocks and door. Expand the gap. It should be noted that in most homes completely remove the partition between Room And the former loggia will not succeed. It refers to load-bearing structures.
Consider the heating system. It should be remembered that according to the current building rules and standards, the radiator can not be moved and installed on the loggia wall. One of the ways to solve this problem can be installing a warm floor.

If necessary, mount additional wiring. Install sockets and switches.
Paint the walls and ceiling of the loggia with plasterboard. Make the finish of the walls and floor. Walls are suitable for painting, wallpaper or wall panels. For the floor - ceramic tiles, parquet or carpet.
