Are you planning on a full bathroom renovation?
Bathroom renovations are second only to kitchen renovations on many home owners’ list of areas to renovate in their home. As fully licensed and experienced bathroom renovation specialists we have seen so many attempted DIY bathroom projects go wrong for many homeowners. There is a reason tradespeople are licensed and receive training. Here are our top five reasons why you should engage the help of an experienced contractor when renovating your bathroom.
1. They can help you stay within budget
Do you know how much it costs to renovate bathrooms, or how much you should set aside for your bathroom renovation? The golden rule here is that the total project should not cost you more than 5 to 10% of your entire home’s value. This is inclusive of materials and installation. Now, only an experienced bathroom renovation specialist will be able to point you in the right direction about where to get the best products at the most affordable prices.
2. They can give you an accurate timeline
Bathroom renovations are sensitive projects especially if you only have this solo bathroom in your house. You will want the renovation completed as quickly as possible. It takes professional renovation experts at least six to seven weeks to complete a full bathroom renovation. As an amateur, you can imagine how much longer it might take you to complete the project.
3. They know what to do in case of emergencies
Falling off a ladder, hurting yourself while using an electric machine, electrocution, all these are possible scenarios that can happen when you attempt any home renovation projects. Not to mention, removing a load-bearing wall, cutting the wrong pipes or joining the wrong electrical wires!!!! As highly trained contractors we know exactly how to react, and what protocol to follow in the event of these situations. Will you know what to do if someone gets electrocuted?
4. They can sort out the building permits
Do you know that each city has building codes and regulations that guide the installation, demolition and renovation aspects of residential and commercial buildings? And depending on the work being done, you may need to apply for permits before work begins. This is especially true if a bathroom is added to a basement as it will require a special type of pump if it sits below the sewer line. Additionally, any changes made to the internal electrical or plumbing systems inside your walls will require permits and licensed contractors.
5. They are experienced and insured
Lastly, professional bathroom renovation specialists are experienced and insured. If anything happens to their tradespeople, they will cover the costs and will handle all the legal responsibilities.
