W przypadku wyższych wartości rozwija się pleśń i grzyby a to jak wiadomo prosta droga do problemów zdrowotnych. Najczęściej przyczyną wilgoci jest zalanie lub nieprawidłowo wykonana izolacja. Jeśli już taka sytuacja się zdarzy to zdecydowanie trzeba podjąć działania w kierunku wyeliminowania tego problemu. Jak tego dokonać? Jak radzić sobie z zalaniem lub wilgocią? Na te pytania krótko odpowiadamy w niniejszym artykule.

Wilgoć w pomieszczeniu – łatwiej zapobiegać niż leczyć

W przypadku gdy przyczyną wilgoci są nieszczelności zdecydowanie należy rozważyć podjęcie prac budowalnych. Przyczyn niestety może być wiele – nieprawidłowe fundamenty, nieszczelne okna, wyeksploatowany dach, nieskuteczna termoizolacja lub nieprawidłowa wentylacja.

W razie problemów z wysoką wilgocią trzeba pamiętać o regularnym wietrzeniu pomieszczeń. Niektórzy w obawie przed wysokimi rachunkami za ogrzewanie starają się ograniczyć wietrzenie co niestety sprzyja rozwojowi wilgoci i pleśni. Jak wiadomo znacznie łatwiej zapobiegać niż leczyć, dlatego prawidłowe zaprojektowanie budynku oraz zwracanie uwagi na regularne wietrzenie to podstawa. Jeśli już jednak wilgoć zadomowi się we wnętrzu to trzeba przejść do ofensywy i wykorzystać specjalistyczne osuszacze powietrza.

Jest co najmniej kilka prostych sposobów domowych na radzenie sobie z wilgocią. Popularne przykłady to wykorzystanie soli, która wchłania wilgoć lub rozstawienie roślin doniczkowych (np. paprotek) gdyż te czerpią wodę z otoczenia. Tego typu rozwiązania brzmią interesująco jednak nie są na tyle skuteczne co zastosowanie specjalistycznego osuszacza powietrza.

Osuszacz powietrza to skuteczne rozwiązanie na pozbycie się nadmiaru wody z otaczającego powietrza. Co ciekawe, osuszacze to proste w obsłudze urządzenia, które można bez problemu wynająć w razie potrzeby (np. wynajem osuszaczy Busko Zdrój).

The current situation on the real estate market

Is buying an apartment for investment purposes with the use of leverage in the form of a mortgage a good idea in the current situation? Will the Polish Deal program introduce changes to the real estate market that may be significant from the investor's point of view?

High inflation, low interest rates and an increase in wages

Considerations on the current situation on the real estate market (Q4 2021) should start with the fact that recently the prices of apartments have increased significantly. The trend is clearly growing, yet there are many people willing to buy flats. It is difficult to clearly define which factors affect such a situation on the real estate market, but one of them is the record low interest rates, thanks to which taking out a mortgage is easier than ever before. Besides, one cannot be indifferent to the increase in wages. In 2017, the minimum wage was PLN 2,000 gross and in 2022 it will be PLN 3,010 gross. This means that even the least-paid Poles earn within 5 years a gross increase of 50%. If we add to this data the fact that the current official inflation rate is as high as 5.8%, it is hardly surprising that there are gains in the real estate market.

So is there still a good time to invest in real estate?

A lot of people buy an apartment for their own use, because in most of the largest cities in Poland the rental fees (excluding meter and administrative fees) are lower than the monthly loan installments. Of course, individual preferences are still of great importance and many people still prefer to rent over a loan, but departing from individual preferences, it can be concluded that the current situation on the real estate market makes taking out a loan for your own housing needs seems to be a reasonable solution from a financial point of view (not taking into account take into account the risks in the form of raising interest rates, the risk of future job loss, etc.).

What is the situation from the investor's perspective? People who have invested in real estate in recent years have successfully protected their capital against inflation. However, or further investing in real estate it will be so it will be just as profitable that of course no one knows. When it comes to dividends in the form of monthly rent, the situation is also becoming more and more complicated here. A few years ago, the ROI 7%-9% seemed to be the most achievable result. Currently, rentiers value annual profits of around 5%. That is why more and more investors are looking for alternatives. Instead of investing in studios, they are becoming more and more popular commercial premises.

0

Balcony railing it is a necessary finish when it comes to our balcony. However, it is worth considering what type to choose and what we can afford. Without thinking about these elements, we can fall into the trap of intrusive companies that will sell us the most expensive model, and we will not necessarily need one.

What is a balcony railing and what are its types?

You could say the first part of the question is stupid because everyone knows what a railing is. However, it is worth starting with what it is to smoothly move on to its types.

The balcony railing is a fence that is distinguished by a smooth end. They also have different elements. Starting with glass, going through railings, if you have children, and handrails. The railings are distinguished by a difference in the technology used and finishes.

Balcony railings made of stainless steel are the ones that are characterized by the highest strength and corrosion resistance. An additional advantage is that you can finish them in such a way that there is a gloss. They are perfect for homes that are decorated in a modern and minimalist style.

Black steel railings are more aesthetic than stainless steel balustrades, but require maintenance. They also require galvanization to withstand weather conditions. It is a more popular type of balcony railing due to a much lower price than stainless steel ones.

Wrought iron railings, unlike black steel railings, are very resistant to external conditions. They do not require renovation, but their weight is very high, which makes them suitable only for stable and solidly mounted balconies that are adapted to higher loads.

Glass railings are very elegant and minimalist. They can be easily combined with wood or stones, metal. According to interior designers, they are perfect for houses decorated in a Scandinavian style.

What is the cost of the railing?

The costs to be prepared for depend on the type of railing you choose.

A running meter of black steel railings costs from 130 to 530 PLN. Prices made of stainless steel range from 230 to 750 PLN. Wrought iron balustrades cost PLN 400-700. Those made of glass cost from 480 to 1000 PLN per linear meter. Wooden ones cost from 280 to 750 PLN. It is obvious that we will pay much less for a material of lower quality than the better one. Although the price ranges are large, it means that it will be easier to find something for our pocket.

Virtual reality can be used by corporations (e.g. in creating virtual instructions that help while working in a production hall, for example, an instruction of this type may appear after looking at a specific element that requires assembly). In general, it seems that, apart from the gaming market, virtual reality should have more and more applications in the broadly understood training and education industry.

You need to take into account the type of boiler, thermal power of the device, combustion temperature, height of the chimney and general operating characteristics of the device, with particular emphasis on the type of fuel used.

The key element is the quality of the chimney. The chimney system cannot work efficiently and reliably if it is not equipment of the appropriate class. A good chimney should be resistant to moisture, corrosion, acids, high temperatures and possible soot.

In addition to the reliability and quality of the chimney, it is important to pay attention to the purpose of the chimney. Stands out chimneysthat discharge exhaust fumes from solid fuel boilers, chimneys that are dedicated to work with gas stoves and chimneys used with liquid fuels. Depending on the needs, the chimney can be made of steel or ceramics. However, it should be noted that ceramic chimneys are used more often in single-family housing.

The advantages of ceramic chimneys include high resistance to damage and temperature changes. In other words, they are solid products that work well for many years. In addition, it is important that they have minimal thermal expansion and are considered easy to install.

Some, however, decide to use metal chimneys, because they have a very good tightness and cope well with very intensive use. By the way, they work well for the renovation of brick chimneys. In the industrial sector, steel chimneys are used a little more often, while in single-family housing, ceramic chimneys work without any problems.

What are the advantages of the protective roofing coating?

0
The durability and tightness of the roof are of great importance for the condition of the entire building and affect the conditions inside it. Unfortunately, despite the use of materials that should have a long service life, they often fail prematurely.

What is a protective roofing coating?

It is mainly influenced by weather conditions - moisture, excessive sunlight, high and low temperatures. Fortunately, nowadays we can take advantage of the modern solution as it is protective roofing coating. What is it and what are its advantages? Let's find out.

The protective roofing coating is a specialized liquid agent that is applied in a thin layer to the roofing. Various types of materials can be covered with it. It is a measure that does not allow moisture to pass inside the building, and at the same time allows it to evaporate outside. At the same time, it effectively protects against the heating of the roof covering, and thus also the interior of the building.

Advantages of a protective roofing coating

The use of a protective roofing coating brings a number of benefits. First of all, the roof is better protected against damage by weather conditions, thanks to which it stays tight longer and fulfills its function.

But that's not all. The roof does not heat up under the influence of sunlight, which not only extends the life of the materials, but also makes the inside temperature lower. As a result, people and animals in the building feel much more comfortable. It is also a significant cost reduction that we would have to bear for air-conditioning rooms.

Among the advantages of roofing coatings, we can also mention their durability, versatility of use and easy application.

In which buildings is it worth using the roofing coating?

The protective roofing coating can be used on virtually any building roof, however, it is especially recommended for buildings that, due to their construction, are significantly more exposed to moisture and excessive heating. We are talking primarily about large buildings with flat roofs, i.e. warehouses, industrial halls, cowsheds and production plants.

The roofing coating is often used also in the case of buildings whose roof shape is very irregular, characterized by, for example, numerous additional roofs or a change in height. In such cases, it is difficult to ensure the maximum tightness of the roof using only traditional materials.

To sum up, the protective roofing coating is a modern and functional solution that brings many benefits. It not only extends the durability of the roof, but also has a positive effect on the conditions inside the building. In combination with the relatively low price and durability of this type of coatings, it is a solution that is worth taking an interest in. No wonder that the number of people who decide to apply a protective layer on the roofs of residential, industrial and workplace buildings is growing every year.

Lamps with an oblong lampshade or glass spheres that focus the light in a vertical beam above the desk look very nice. For such a place, it is not worth choosing chandeliers made of colored glass, because they change the color of the light.
