Extraordinary maintenance or renovation works are all those aimed at keeping the property in good condition through the replacement or modification of structural parts of the building or the construction of completely new systems or structures. Therefore, whenever a modification or innovation is introduced, it falls under the category of extraordinary maintenance or restructuring.
To give some concrete examples: the replacement of fixtures is ordinary maintenance but if you change the shape, moving the window or enlarging it, then it is extraordinary; the replacement of tiles and sanitary fixtures in the bathroom is ordinary maintenance but if you move a partition, add a wall, move a door or if you redo the water systems it becomes an extraordinary renovation; all energy saving and efficiency interventions are considered extraordinary, and as such require a report to the Municipal Technical Office with a permit request signed by a qualified technician drywall repair.
