The salt air, the sun and the often heavy tropical rain are a problem for almost all apartment owners in Rio de Janeiro, especially if you own a penthouse. But even normal apartments require significantly more maintenance than in Central Europe. This has many different reasons like old buildings, bad craftsmen and also the worse building materials than in Europe or the USA. For example, it is almost impossible to buy steel screws in stores in the southern zone of Rio, with devastating consequences for many buildings.
Therefore, it is important to have a lot of experience. We know what materials to use and where to buy them. This saves enormous costs and time.
We have a lot of experience with craftsmen and the different challenges of a construction site in Rio. We will always find a solution.
