In Poland most commieblocks are already renovated but we have very mixed fealings... People responsible for this works often have no taste and care only about how to cut the heating costs with thermomodernisation.

Some examples from Warsaw:

etc.

Luckily commieblocks in Yugoslavia were built with normal quality so only facade reconstruction is needed, without any isolation works.

yeah, that's true
I heard that in Poland interior isolation is done very bad, everyone can practically hear you taking a bath or any other action

It's supposed to be related with prefab technology but it's not that bad really, my commie is prefab-brick mix and it's quite ok as long as someone above me doesn't start working with drill so f*ng annoying

I don't think you really need thermoisolation in your climate
Buildings are covered in polystyrene to cut heating costs during winters, it wasn't a problem in the communist times when energy was much cheaper so I don't think it's related with quality. Brutalist style buildings so popular in former Yugoslavia wouldn't work well in our climate (they have no isolation at all unlike panels- it just wasn't enough after '89) so we almost didn't use this style which is sad because I like it very much.

I like the colors but what I don't like is that they flattened the facade. 3 one on the left is not renovated yet.

Yes, thats the main reason for commieblock renovations I guess also some mineral wool for fire-safety issues.

Well they did on the yellow one but his white neighbhor is flat for some reason and it was even the same company (afaik) that renovated it so I don't really understand this.

Some good renovation work here on these Commies.

I will try and send a few pics from Glasgow when I get a chance as a lot of towerblocks/housing estates are getting re-rendered here and are looking a lot better.

Here are some photos I took earlier today of some large renovated blocks form the south of Glasgow. Hope to photograph some more Glasgow blocks when I get some spare time.
