Have you decided to hire a professional bathroom remodeling contractor? You have just made a smart move.
Hiring a bathroom remodeling contractor can save you loads of misery and time due to some of the difficult operations like electrical, tiling and plumbing that are involved. However, before you select the appropriate contractor, you need some checklist of your wants and needs. You need to hire someone you can get along with and trust to do your job well. Below are 3 tips for hiring remodeling contractors to help you make an informed decision.
1. Do your homework
It is important that you have a clear plan of what you want for both your project and the contractor. For your renovations, you need to have a clear idea of how you want your bathroom to look like and to have a realistic budget of how much you are prepared to spend. As for the contractor, you want to focus on individuals who have prior experience with your type of project. You need to get recommendations from friends, family, or even a building inspector about bathroom contractors in your area.
Interviews and work samples of two or three contractors you would have selected would be preferable. You need people who are both accredited and insured. Once you have settled on the contractor that you feel is the best fit for your job, have a legally binding contract, signed by both parties. Good professionals will understand that putting everything in writing will provide protection for you both.
2. Contractors are not necessarily designers
Some bathroom remodeling contractors are inclusive of everything that has to do with a bathroom renovation. This means that they will help you with every aspect of the remodel, from the initial design to the very last towel bar screwed into the wall. However, other bathroom remodeling contractors want you to come into the project with bathroom design plans ready for them to execute.
3. Supply your own materials and save money
Be aware that every item that the contractor buys will have his/her commission tacked onto it. However, most bathroom remodeling contractors are perfectly fine with you purchasing items on your own. These could be decorative towel bars, mirrors, toilets or light fixtures. Keep in mind though that the lowest price quotations may not always be your best pick.
