Sometimes what was once great is no longer good enough. Your bathroom may need a remodel for an upgraded, modern look or to accommodate for someone in your home with mobility issues. Whatever your needs may be, finding the right company to do the job is the most important first step in your bathroom remodel process. Here are three of the best ways to research bath remodeling companies before hiring them.
Know What You Want
Before you even begin looking for a bathroom remodeling company, your first priority is to know what you want the finished product to look like. Having every single detail in mind is not necessary. However, going into a meeting with a company with an idea of what you’d like them to do and what you want your bathroom to look like afterward is ideal, for both you and the company you end up hiring.
Do Your Own Research
Relying on the opinion of a friend’s cousin’s college roommate is not one of the best ways to research bath remodeling companies. The company you choose will be in your home, making permanent and drastic changes to it. For your peace of mind, you need to be certain that they are reliable, trustworthy professionals. Do online research on each company you may potentially hire through reviews, ratings, past projects, and especially on their website. While on their site, make sure that what you want done to your bathroom (such as installing a walk-in bathtub or doing a tub-to-shower conversion) does not conflict with what they say they can do.
However, once you’ve done that research, if you do know someone who has had a specific company you’re interested in do work on their bathroom, ask them for a detailed opinion of the workers, the finished product, and the company’s rates. In other words, the best ways to research bath remodeling companies are the ways that cover all the bases and protect your home and investment.
Create Your Budget and Get an Estimate
After figuring out what you want done to your bathroom, doing your own research, and finding a company that you like, meet with said company for an in-home evaluation of what you want and what they can do for you. But before you even meet with them, you need to establish a budget. How much are you willing to spend? Is it an ironclad number you can’t go over, or a more like a zone you’d like to stay in? These are questions you need to answer while deciding on a bathroom remodeling company.
Once you finally do figure out your budget and meet with the company, be sure they provide you with a written estimate of how much it will all cost. If the cost is within your budget, there is no need to hesitate on signing with the company. However, if they want to charge you more than you are willing to pay, there may be some difficult decisions to be made, such as deciding to fix fewer things in your bathroom or finding a different bathroom remodeling company. But rest assured the right company will work with you to find a solution to fit your budget, and offer financial solutions.
