Managing a large renovation project is hard to do on your own. Designing, hiring, and coordinating multiple trades at once is not an easy task. By contrast, General Contractors have the experience, knowledge, network, and skills to lead your project the whole way through. When Nithin was looking to gut and renovate their bathroom, as well as do some electrical work in their Barrie home, they hired a general contractor for $7,000.
Bathroom Renovation in Barrie
Nithin’s bathroom renovation involved completely gutting the space. Additionally, they needed it to be done within a week. Knowing this was nearly impossible, Nithin didn’t attempt to hire several different pros to complete the job. They knew there was no way they would be able to coordinate it all and complete the job within the timeline and budget.
Instead, Nithin hired Dekorum Home Improvements to take the lead. What stood out to Nithin about Dekorum Home Improvements was their professionalism. This stretched from the first meeting, to the access to speciality trades, the work completed, and the finished product.
Nithin was looking to fully upgrade their bathroom, so they wanted each and every aspect to be flawless. Unlike a regular crew showing up everyday, completing all aspects of the project, Dekorum Home Improvements was able to send in a specialty trade each day.
Each day of the reno consisted of one trade, either a tiler, electrician, plumber, or carpenter, coming to complete their aspect of the job. With this type of scheduling, not only was Nithin able to receive highly skilled pros who completed top quality work, but there were no conflicts or miscommunications between the trades. This allowed the project to stay on track and budget for completion. Take a look at more of the finished photos here.
Additional Electrical Work
On the day that the electrical work was being done in the bathroom, Nithin asked the electrician if they would be willing to do some extra work around the house. Dekorum Home Improvements worked this into the job quote and the electrician completed all of the extra work the same day they were doing the bathroom. This helped out Nithin greatly as they didn’t have to scurry to hire another electrician and spend more money and time.
