constructeur local en train de couper dangereusement la sécurité de ses travailleurs

C’est le genre de chose que nous voyons tout le temps ici au Portugal, mais pour les moins informés, cela semble probablement assez anodin.
Permettez-moi de dire d’emblée que tous les constructeurs ne sont pas égaux et que nos collègues sont à la fois compétents et expérimentés. Ils sont également assurés au bon niveau.

Pour moi, cela décrit parfaitement la différence entre ce que vous attendez à voir et à expérimenter au Royaume-Uni, en France ou en Hollande et ce qui se passe au Portugal.
La raison en est que les constructeurs au Portugal n’ont aucune formation officielle ou que la grande majorité de la formation n’est pas assurée ou sous-assurée pour couvrir leurs travailleurs, votre famille ou vos biens.

Un jeune homme typique, s’il ne trouve rien d’autre, finira par travailler sur un chantier. Il copiera toutes les tâches de base comme le bétonnage, la brique et peut-être même la menuiserie.
S’il n’est pas bon, il est licencié et passe d’un emploi à un apprentissage en apprentissage.
La principale cause du problème et la raison pour laquelle les propriétés sont mal construites ou mal remises en état sont que le jeune constructeur ne peut pas facilement apprendre la bonne façon de faire si ses aînés et les personnes responsables ne sont pas du tout compréhensifs. de ce qu’ils font ou c, éduqués au niveau de l’école primaire.

Prenons par exemple un constructeur d’âge moyen que je connais. Nous parlions de la construction de grands murs de soutènement et du problème que beaucoup d’entre eux finissent par se déplacer ou s’éloigner de la verticale.
Il a dit “la raison en est qu’ils ont placé les trous dans le mauvais endroit” “Je mets toujours les miens près du sommet du mur”
Je lui ai dit que chez Castelo Construction, nous utilisons toujours un ingénieur en structure pour concevoir de grands murs de soutènement afin qu’ils ne bougent plus à l’avenir. Ces murs ont toujours les trous de suie près du bas des murs. Je lui ai montré des photos des travaux que nous avions effectués et des grands murs exécutés par des entrepreneurs gouvernementaux. Tous avec des trous pleureurs près du fond.
Il s’est avéré qu’il n’était pas capable de lire, alors il était incapable de lire les notes d’instruction des ingénieurs civils et «improvisait tout au long de son parcours».
Malheureusement, si vous aviez une maison construite ou rénovée par ce constructeur, vous pourriez essayer de réclamer une indemnisation à l’avenir. Pour lequel nous vous offrons la meilleure des chances.

Insulating a new roof

Insulation – To answer your question it is important to understand that not all insulation products are equal in terms of, price, performance, availability, and suitability for all application areas.

Yes, I too used to think insulation was simple to understand.

Insulation comes in all sorts of mediums and materials. Some are cheap or free and some are expensive and only work in certain situations.

Now let’s get to the specific question.

If you are going to only use the roof/ loft area as a store I would suggest using any of these products but only after the woodworm in the roof spars, purlins and joists have been properly treated and any broken roof tiles replaced.

Rockwool / Earth wool attic insulation.

Building a new house in Portugal

I am guilty myself of sketching floor plans and elevation plans of my ideal home. One design even had an Italian inspired tower!. So I do realize that you are not alone!

The first consideration is the land. Location, Location, location.

Have you established for certain that the land can have a dwelling built on it.

Is there access for construction vehicles. Is the ground suitable for building on without huge additional cost.

Can you actually fit the size of home that you want on the land with outbuildings and a swimming pool (are you sure).

Is there water and power nearby that won’t be difficult or take a long time to make utility connections so that you can live in the finished home.

Plans drawings sketches, photographs. Do you have a firm idea of the property that you want to build. Number of bedrooms, size and number of floors.

You probably do and you may be one of the 20% of people we meet who are trying to find a plot of land that will accommodate their recently paid for house design. In the process they forget or are forced to give way on the three most important rules –
