A poor renovation or mistakes made during an attempted DIY can be costly to fix. Not to mention the damage that could be done to your home during the process. This is why we always recommend leaving extensive bathroom renovations to the pros. They have the skills and knowledge to give you the bathroom you want. Keep our tips in mind when it comes time to hire a pro and renovate your bathroom.
Not All Companies Provide the Same Services
Before you start reaching out to companies for quotes, it’s important to know that not all bathroom renovation companies provide design services. While some will help you with everything from design to installation, others will expect you to have a design plan for them to work off of. Keep this in mind when you start researching and reaching out to companies for quotes.
Get Your Wish List Ready
Regardless of whether or not you decide to go with a company that provides design services, it’s important that you have an idea of what you want your bathroom to look like before you reach out to companies for quotes. This is because pricing varies depending on what features you want and the extent of your reno. By knowing now if you want a certain type of tile or a particular vanity, it helps the pros more accurately quote your project. Create a list that has everything you want on it and be sure to share it with each pro you get a quote from. This will also help accurately compare quotes from multiple companies.

Obtain a Contract
Once you’ve found the right company for the job, you can move forward with obtaining a contract. Having a signed contract by both parties confirms the agreement you have made. This way if anything does not go to plan, you always have the contract to fall back on. Imagine if something were to go terribly wrong with your project. Without a contract, you will have no proof and it will come down to the company’s word against yours. When undertaking a major project like a bathroom renovation, be sure to always get a signed contract that outlines what’s going to be done, when it will be done, and how much it’s going to cost.
