Remodeling a bathroom can be a stressful endeavor. To make the process easier and even save yourself some money, consider using a bathroom remodeling company. A reputable bathroom remodeling company provides valuable expertise that allows you to choose the design options that maximize your space, your budget and your time. Here are five things to consider when you’re looking to hire a bathroom remodeling company:
First and foremost, you need to find a bathroom remodeling company that has experience in bathroom remodeling. Too often plumbers, handymen and other construction professionals will present themselves as bathroom remodeling experts. While many will undoubtedly have far-reaching construction knowledge, only a company with actual bathroom remodeling experience will have the necessary skillset and background to anticipate the many different issues associated with bathroom design. These issues include, but aren’t limited to, the necessary building permits, local building codes, knowledge of bathroom design elements, access to specific tools and supplies and more!
Of course, a professional bathroom remodeling company will likely offer additional services that make bathroom remodeling easier and more fun. Many partner with dedicated design team which can educate you on the thousands of design elements available to you and help you work through them so that you choose only the ones that work best for your own unique needs and tastes. In addition, most bathroom remodeling companies will have relationships with vendors who provide deals on materials, labor and decor so that you don’t have to source and pay more for the things you want or need. Working with a full-service bathroom remodeling company ensures that you get the most bang for your buck.
Any truly professional bathroom remodeling company will have no problem verifying its license(s), proof of insurance, organizational memberships and other qualifications that demonstrate its knowledge, skills and expertise. Ask for and inspect documentation for all professional credentials before choosing to work with any bathroom remodeling company.
Portfolio, Testimonials, Reviews and Referrals
You also need to consider a bathroom remodeling company’s portfolio, including any testimonials from previous clients. Pictures and comments regarding past jobs will give you a good idea of the kind of work they provide and whether it matches your own aesthetics and standards. While testimonials are naturally positive and perhaps not as telling as third-party reviews, a large number of them can indicate a high level of overall client satisfaction. However, you can — and should — independently search for reviews and referrals to see if other clients of the bathroom remodeling company you’re considering have truly had their needs adequately met.
Last, but not least, is cost. When hiring a bathroom remodeling company you need to think the amount you can afford to spend. Talk to potential partners to see if your budget is realistic and fits within the scope of their work. Talk about time frames and unexpected expenses, and always ask for a quote in writing. Ideally, you should request quotes from multiple bathroom remodeling companies so that you are able to compare each one’s prices, scope of services and expectations.
