If you’re considering a bathroom renovation, you have lots of ideas. Whether you are thinking of a luxurious master bathroom, or a sophisticated powder room for your guests – a bathroom remodel is not a small project to be taken lightly. While you may be tempted to hire a handyman or your “do it yourself expert” family member, the bathroom is a complex space, combining plumbing, electrical and tile work that only a professional should attempt.
From choosing the best materials to making sure that your installation is safe and cost efficient, an expert renovation company is your best bet. You will be ensured that your dream bathroom will become a reality, not a nightmare in the making.
- Hiring a professional protects you should something go wrong: You should never attempt a renovation without a licensed and insured contractor. This protects you in several ways. Licensed contractors are more likely to have all required education, be more stable and upstanding members of the community. If properly insured, their insurance will cover any damage inadvertently done to your home, as well as any injury one of their employees may suffer. If someone is not insured and their employee is injured, they can actually sue you for the incident. You can check a company’s licensure at the Florida Division of Corporations, and ask them directly for proof of insurance.
- Hiring a professional eases stress: When undertaking a bathroom remodel, you may not understand all of the choices which need to be made; and the handyman who understands tile may not understand plumbing. Hiring multiple people is typically never your most cost effective way to go, and scheduling and managing multiple contractors can be stressful. Not having use of your bathroom for weeks at a time is another anxiety you shouldn’t have to deal with. Hiring the right professional from the beginning will help you to understand scope, cost and duration of the project – taking a load of stress off your plate.
- Hiring a professional saves you time: Many of us have attempted a home renovation, only to get halfway done and run out of hours in the day to complete it. Others may have asked family friends to help, only to find themselves having to call in the experts to fix mistakes which were made. Often, DIYers open the wall only to find a plumbing or electrical disaster which is out of their scope of expertise, but now have to wait for an expert to come rectify the issue. You may have even chosen the perfect tile aesthetically, only to find it does horribly in a moist environment. Starting with the right professional ensures that your design and execution are flawless – and that the job can be finished quickly and correctly.
- Hiring a professional can save you money: This may seem counter intuitive to those who fancy themselves handy, but a bathroom remodel is a complex project. You need to have expertise in plumbing, electricity, waterproofing, ductwork and more. A lack of experience can cause mistakes that are costly to repair, as well as material waste and time lost. Investing in a professional remodeling company results in having a set budget, no surprises, and the most streamlined renovation.
