How to save on house repair?

A house repair. About 50% of people embark on such an important venture once in 5 years. 30% prefer to remodel their houses every 7 years. The rest do it once in a decade, sociologists say. Given all that, we should also mention that having this dubious pleasure can cost you a pretty penny or, on the average, 300 dollars per square meter if the renovation is made in accordance with European standards. Thus the recent surveys have shown that more than a half of residents of CIS countries prefer to renovate their houses rather than spend their money on holidays or a new car.
