While you could probably handle installing a new towel rack or sink fixture, the bigger projects — such as demolition, tub removal, and tile and countertop installation – need to be handled by the pros. That’s why it’s important to hire a reputable bathroom remodeling contractor with plenty of experience. You don’t want to risk tackling a bigger project than you can handle, only to shell out big bucks later to fix it. A contractor you hire needs to have the experience, know-how, training and licensing to get the job done right the first time. Why should you hire a bathroom remodeling contractor?
You may think you can handle the actual work of a bathroom renovation, yet can you make it look like a professional did it? This can be tricky. Have you ever been in someone’s bathroom where the toilet wasn’t level, the tiles didn’t quite match up or the sink fixtures were loose? That’s an example of an amateur bathroom remodel job gone wrong. Nothing can replace the touch of a professional who does this on a daily basis. The money you may be saving doing something yourself will usually be quite evident in the way the finished bathroom looks.
Bathroom remodeling contractors have connections with wholesalers and other bathroom supply dealers who can give them the best prices on the highest quality products. If you were to do the project yourself, you would likely pay top-dollar at the retail store. In fact, you could end up shelling out more on the materials than the contractor would charge with labor combined, as you don’t have the insider knowledge on which products to get at the lowest prices.
Weekend warriors tend to have high hopes for their bathroom renovation projects but in reality, it may end up taking them several weeks or months working only weekends just to complete the job. What free time you DO have is eaten up by a renovation that really shouldn’t take that long because, after all, it is a crucial room in the house. Every day that passes with no working bathroom, the stress level rises in the home. Hiring a team of contractors for the bathroom renovation means you have a team of design and construction professionals working 8- to 10-hour days to get the job done as soon as possible. You get your bathroom back – and your life back – in just days rather than months.
Choosing a contractor, assuming you’ve done your research and looked into the company’s background, means you have a licensed, bonded and insured professional working hard to get your bathroom remodeling job done in a timely, efficient manner.
