Whether you’re looking for a simple replacement tub or you dream of an entire bathroom remodel, it’s important that you partner with a dependable contractor who will provide you with a quality product and service. But that’s not all, the very best contractors make the entire process quick, easy and affordable.
Before you settle on a professional installation team, you should ask these important questions:
How much is it going to cost?
It is important to be clear about how much your bath replacement is going to cost. It’s a good idea to get a few different quotes to ensure you’re getting the best deal.
Make sure you clarify whether the amount you’re quoted is an estimate or a fixed price. A fixed price will cause less stress, but leaves little room for flexibility. One is not necessarily better than the other, but it is important to know if you might be expected to pay more than you were originally quoted.
How long is the remodel going to take?
You’ll want to know exactly how long the remodel is going to take, this is especially important if you’re replacing a bathtub, shower or a toilet. Will you have to use a spare bathroom for a week or a month? Less construction isn’t always better as you don’t want a contractor to rush through the job, but you you also don’t want the dilly-dallying in your home either.
You should also ask how serious they are about keeping to a deadline. How often do they go over that deadline? Once again, it’s about expectations , you don’t want to plan on being without a bathroom for a few days and end up without your bathroom for a few weeks instead.
Ask personal questions too
Make sure you ask personal questions as well. You want to find a company that’s worth every penny you spend.
A few personal questions you should as include:
Do you have a license?
Always make sure that you are dealing with a licensed contractor who is qualified to do the job.
Are you Insured?
You will find that some contractors out there are not insured, so asking will give you some peace of mind to cover any unfortunate happenings.
Have you ever won any special award?
This will give you an insight to their history, achievements and general recognition for their work.
How long have you been I business?
Although there are many contractor out there who are not long in the business but have a fantastic reputation, people tend to lean towards longevity i.e the longer a company has been in business the more peace of mind they have but this should generally not be the case.
Who should i expect to see at my home everyday?
It is always good to ask who will be attending your home so that you know who to expect.
Can I reach you after hours?
This is a very important question to ask as you will be more at ease knowing you can reach your contractor at any given time if you need to ask any questions or otherwise.
Do you offer any warranties?
Most contractors would offer you warranty on every job as standard but it is always good to ask this question to avoid any nasty surprises.
