Are you in search of a reliable and competent bathroom renovation team?
Bathroom renovations are very sensitive in nature because they involve letting strangers into your home and onto your property for an extended period of time. Therefore, it is imperative that you learn how to choose the right contractors wisely. Here are our curated tips from years of experience in the industry, to help you make an informed decision.
How to choose a bathroom renovator
Step 1: Get several leads – at least three
Word-of-mouth recommendations are still the number one way to find reputable and trustworthy bathroom renovators. Ask from friends and family who’ve recently had work done if they can give you good leads to pursue.
Step 2: Interview each prospect and ask as many questions as possible
Follow up with at least three of these leads, and ask questions about their style of work, experience, how large their teams are, what products they intend to use for the renovations, and what associated warranties and guarantees they can offer. The more answers you have, the easier it will be to make a decision.
Step 3: Do your background checks on these leads
Do these tradespeople have the necessary qualifications, insurances and permissions to carry out the work they claim to do? There are many skilled tradespeople who are not qualified or professionally trained to do the work. Bathroom renovations are very delicate and therefore we highly recommend working with skilled, qualified and certified tradespeople.
Step 4: Check out their references and portfolios
The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. In this case, it’s in a contractor’s past work. Visit sites where they’ve done similar work and if you can access the bathrooms to check out the quality of workmanship do so.
Step 5: Determine if your personalities get along
Because you’re likely to be working with these contractors for at least four weeks, you need to ensure that you can communicate clearly and understand each other. If a team appears disorganized, and the chain of communication seems to get lost, they might not be the right people to hire.
How to plan a bathroom renovation
Here are our top five tips on how to prepare for a bathroom renovation:
Tip 1 Get the layout planned
You need a plan for your new bathroom. Get designers to sketch out a plan for you. This is especially important if you intend on changing the current bathroom layout.
Tip 2 Choose your colours
Colour is so important to a bathroom. Are you a neutral colour person, or you like blues and greys? The tone will set the pace for the rest of the fittings and bath ware you’ll choose.
Tip 3 Choose your tiles
Tiles are a fantastic way of sprucing up your bathroom. If you’d like to see just how important the right type of tile can be to your new bathroom, take a look at our previous projects. We’re certain you’ll be inspired!
Tip 4 Estimate your budget
It’s easy to get carried away with all the designing and picking out new bath ware and tap ware. Give yourself a budget. Work within this budget. Allow a 10-15% emergency allowance, but try by all means to stick to your original amount.
Tip 5 Hire a good renovation team
A good renovation team is critical to making your dream come true. Therefore, take heed of our advice above, on how to choose a bathroom renovator.
