Renovating your bathroom can be an exciting process for new and old homeowners, but it can also cause a great deal of stress. Naturally you would want the whole project to be perfect from start to finish, and you definitely wouldn’t want to spend extra money to fix a renovator’s mishaps.
To ensure you are getting the value your paid for it is vital that you communicate very clearly with your renovator on what you want and how you want your bathroom to look. Below are a few questions that you should be asking your bathroom renovator before they get started on your dream bathroom.
How many years have you been renovating bathrooms for?
For any job that requires someone to do work in your house, you should ALWAYS be hiring a professional craftsman. Asking about someone’s experience and keeping tabs on their professionalism will not only give you peace of mind, but it will also show the contractor that you value their experience and expertise. Comb for details on their punctuality, cleanliness, communication and quality of work. By doing this, your renovator will know that you understand what path your bathroom will be going through and that you trust their skill. Experience is more often then not more valuable than qualifications and an experienced bathroom renovator will take their job seriously.
Are you licensed and qualified?
Bathroom remodelling is not just a typical job any handyman can undertake. Construction is notorious for bringing up legalities that you might face when trouble strikes, so make sure that your contractor is licensed and qualified. This will cover you in the long run, and it sends a clear message to them that you want your reno’s done according to regulation. If they aren’t registered, find out why or switch contractors.
Do you take on bathroom remodeling projects of my scope?
Contractors can vary in what projects they specialise in. For example, one contractor may do master bathroom renovations, while another focuses specifically on small bathroom or ensuite remodels. So asking this question straight away can save everyones time and effort.
Do you have any references?
Last but not least, ask for references that you can call before hiring. Take the extra mile to find out if clients were happy with the job to help you form a decision. Once you have the details, ask about time frame, satisfaction and professionalism of the contractor and if they would use them again.
If you ask all these questions before renovating a bathroom you will be able to make sure you have the right team for your renovation!
