The internet is a great resource when it comes to finding a contractor to remodel…
Now that you’ve chosen a contractor, the journey can begin!
To guarantee that the process goes smoothly, let’s go over the steps you’ll take in the process of working with a contractor.
We recommend getting at least three bids from different contractors to understand your options.
Make sure that both you and your contractor understand the bid.
Is your bid an estimate or the final cost?
Some contractors will give you the estimate, but they will end up charging you more once they realize how extensive the job is.
Talk with your contractor so you’re on the same page regarding price.
Establish expectations and make a plan to avoid misunderstandings in the future.
Ask whether the contractor will be hiring subcontractors for any portion of the job and how they will be managed.
Take the time to document everything, from bid and timeline to design and feedback.
Detailed documentation is helpful when it comes to legal and financial processes.
When everything is documented, it’s easier to communicate with your contractor and to refer back to the original plans.
Throughout the process, make a point to have regular check-ins with your contractor.
When you stay in the loop, it’s much easier to head any issues off early and keep the project from getting out of your control.
Regular check-ins will prevent miscommunications, misunderstandings, mistakes, and frustrations that can come with bathroom remodels.
As you continue to check in with your contractor, don’t hesitate to give feedback regularly.
Give feedback about their work and bathroom design, as well as the process and your concerns.
Contractors can’t read your mind. If you give clear feedback you’ll feel confident that your project will turn out the way you wanted.
Living through a bathroom remodel can be frustrating, slow, and painful. Especially if it’s taking a lot longer than you expected!
This is what makes realistic expectations at the outset so important.
Talk with your contractor to better understand their process. Will you be able to use your bathroom during the project? How long will it be out of commission (if at all)?
When you’re beginning to question if a bathroom remodel is even worth it, it’s important to know what to expect.
