HOW TO ESTIMATE THE COST OF A HOUSE (page 3)
COST OF AND
There are basically two types of that are mostly sold in the markets, they are the oil and water . The oil are mostly used for the of iron and other metallic materials as well as wood and other places that water cannot be used due to the possibility of washing away.
Meanwhile, the water are used mostly for houses and other civil works, due to its ability to stick to the plastered walls and concrete walls.
The cost of a house can vary from one painter to another likewise the cost of itself. There are many brands of in the market and their prices depend on their quality. The are usually sold in the market in the quantities of different sizes of buckets ranging from 4 liters buckets to 20 liters buckets and the quantity determines the price for any particular brand. In most markets small sizes of 5 liters buckets of water may cost from N1000 to N4000 depending on the quality and brand of the water . While the 20 liters buckets may cost from N5, 000 to N15000 depending on the quality and the brand name.
When it comes to the cost for the painter’s workmanship; some painters can charge the of the whole according to the sizes of the walls and areas that need the . Basically most builders may prefer charging according to the quantities of may be the cost for a bucket of 20 liters of but whichever way possible this section would be strictly in agreement with the painter, but for a of total lengths of its wall put together does not exceed 500 feet in widths and 12 feet in heights both outside and inside the cost of it may not exceed N200, 000.
COST OF ELECTRIFYING THE HOUSE
The cost of electrifying a can be properly obtained by carefully analyzing all the required in different locations in the . For instance, if the is a three bedroom apartment, two pavilions; one in front and the other at the back, one parlor, one dining room, three toilets, three bathrooms, one kitchen, and the has four sides which require lights on its walls facing outsiders. Then the simple logic is to note that each of the places listed above must have a particular number of bulbs, lamp holders, wall switches, fans, fan regulators, assuming each of these places will be having one bulb, one lamp holder, one wall socket and one fan and its regulator, it means summing up all the number of bulbs, lamp holder, and switches. A packet of lamp holder is 12 pieces inside and cost about N1200 for the substandard brands but original types could cost up to N3000 per packet while the sockets cost N200 each piece and the bulb costs N100 for one while the energy saving types cost from N400 up to N1500 for one.
The quantities of required can be obtained by taking the measurement of the entire places the will through and approximating it to obtain the actual bundles of needed for the . A standard 1mm cost up to N10, 000 for a bundle and has a total length of 100meters. While the superior quality of the same length can cost up to N20, 000.
So, obtaining the number of bundles of needed and the appliances and multiplying them with the listed prices above can give an estimated cost of electrifying your .
COST OF TOILET SEATERS
Toilets accessories and their seater are another part of the project, the cost of a toilet seater in market currently is N13, 000 while its accessories such as wash hand basin and , etc. should be within N10, 000.
To fix them will require the service of a plumber, which the cost for installation is usually charged within N10, 000 to N5000 for each toilet.
COST OF SAND FILLING
During the foundation process, the level of the is determined and the specified level can be obtained by filling it up with sand. The sand use for sand filling may not necessarily be a sharp sand due to its cost, rather ordinary sand excavated from another location can be used for the sand filling, most builders that cannot afford to buy ordinary sand from the sand suppliers use to the hole and use the sand obtained to fill the foundation to the required height.
For the standard way of a house the filling of the foundation with sand is usually done by buying the sand from the sand suppliers. The cost for a trip of such sand is usually N10, 000 for single loading which is lesser in price when compared to the cost of sharp sands.
The quantity of the sand that will be used to fill the foundation of a particular depends on the level that needs to be filled and the size of the foundation.
COST OF GERMAN
To a house is among the initial things done during the foundation preparation, it is just a process of making the to be solid by the use of concrete. To a house you need marbles or limestone or granite, sharp sand and , these materials are mixed in the ratio of 10 wheelbarrow of the granite or marble or limestone to 5 wheelbarrow of sand and 1 bag of with enough water to moisture them, the concrete is usually applied to the after a thorough compacting of the with water followed by hammering with stick or heavy tools on the simultaneously. After the concrete has been poured another hammering action will be done and a plumbing tool will be used to ensure that the has a uniform level in all the locations of the .
The cost of depends on the quality of house the builder wants to have, the most standard can have each room floored with 2 bags of according to the concrete mixture mentioned above while some may have an even higher number of bags. Using the standard you can approximately obtain the number of bags needed for the entire house as well as the number of trips of granite or limestone and sharp sand since a single trip of each of them does not exceed 30 wheelbarrows when filled properly.
The workmanship is according to the number of bag, each bag of opened and mixed in the should be within N4000 to N6000 depending on your bargain with the worker.
COST OF AND COST OF TILING
Tiling is another way of making the of the house more comfortable for inhabitation especially if it is a meant for rent. The process of tiling is better and more economical when it is done when the job is being performed.
The price of tile cannot be fixed but have related prices from one dealer to another and depending on the quality of the , some locally made can cost from N10, 000 to N20, 000 per carton while the imported and superior quality ones can be about N30, 000 to N50, 000 and these types have different size to the normal that cost lower.
Determining the number that will be enough for a particular like a room is simply to divide the area of the room after measuring with a tape and summing it up with the area of the you want to use any amount obtain is the number of you need for that room, do that to all the spaces in the house to obtain the number you need for the entire and use it to determine how many cartons you need to buy.
The cost of workmanship for tiling is usually determined by the area or to be tiled therefore most workers prefer charging the as a contract. But primarily a room measuring 20 feet square may not cost more than N10, 000 for tiling workmanship.
With all these listed above starting from the page 1 of this article you can at least figure out a particular amount of money needed for your , even if the amount is not up to the one calculated here the remaining money to round it up will not be much as I believed that if these articles are properly followed and implemented the gap wouldn’t be much.
