3 Big Problems With Bathroom Remodeling Contractors
I've been a general contractor for over 20 years and have
over 30 years of experience in the construction industry. I've ran into
almost every type of personality that you could possibly think of. I
would like to share some of my experiences here, when it comes to
choosing a good bathroom remodeling contractor.
Here are the top five problems that I have found when it comes to selecting a good bathroom remodeling contractor.
1. The biggest problem I have found, with any contractor, and this applies especially to bathroom remodeling, would be the experience. The contractor might have the experience, but is he going to be there. Make sure that you ask the contractor, up front if he is going to have someone with at least 15 years of experience on the job.
2. Can you communicate effectively with the contractor and his workers? If you speak English, can they speak Spanish, this could create a really big problem. Not only is effective communication the key to a successful building project, it can solve a lot of frustration, especially if there's an emergency or something isn't going right on the job.
3. Getting a good price for your new bathroom. You should get at least three estimates and if you can't get that, try to get at least two estimates. This will give you something to compare prices with. I don't recommend, ever going with the cheapest contractor, bathroom remodeling contractors can give you a low price in the beginning and then find problems, while they're working on your house, that will drastically increase your remodeling budget.
Finding a good bathroom remodeling contractor isn't difficult, use your head, apply a little common sense and use your gut, if you don't feel good about the person that you're about to higher, I don't care how much money he's planning on saving you or how good of the contractor he actually is, think twice and higher once.
