Remodeling Tips from a San Diego Bathroom Remodeling Contractor
Bathroom remodeling tips for helping you decide whether doing it yourself or hiring a contractor is the best decision for you.
Use a professional bathroom remodel contractor.
Bathroom remodeling can be a difficult experience; especially when not using a professional bathroom remodel contractor. So, to get the best results, we highly advise you to seek the help of someone who deeply knows the craft of remodeling bathrooms.
DIY (Doing it Yourself) is not a good idea.
Older bathroom generally show signs of wear and tear due to constant use and moisture/water damages. Most of the time, joists of the flooring become rot and they really need replacing. Plumbing underneath the floor also deteriorates and sometimes they are so far beyond repair that replacement is the only option.
Do you think you can do all these jobs? If you lack experience with bathroom fixtures, plumbing, and tile setting then it is more likely that you are not qualified to tackle these complex tasks. You will more than likely end up with a bathroom which not incorrect. Therefore leading you to a more complications and more expenses.
Go one step farther than tip #1, find a reputable contractor who has lots of experience and good references.
A reputable contractor is someone who other customers like and find their work impressive. They should also have a good work ethic and have references. With a well experienced contractor working on your bathroom, the chances for an unforeseen problem arising are far less than with a do-it-yourself project.
Working with a professional contractor will make you feel confident that any inspection he performs within your bathroom will be proper. So when a bathroom remodeling project is what you have, it really pays for you to find the best contractor to further eliminate your worries.
With a licensed bathroom remodel contractor, you are assured that he has all the skills and knowledge to tackle your bathroom remodeling project.
Consider the condition of your bathroom and how much works is necessary for a full remodeling.
The first thing a bathroom remodel contractor should do is to assess the condition of your bathroom. Is it structurally sound? The next thing that he needs to inspect is the plumbing system of the bathroom. Since older bathrooms usually have lead pipes which can be worn away by rust they may need to be replaced with new pipes. The use of new lines will make your bathroom or home remodel up to date with recent building code requirements.
After all these things have been thoroughly investigated by the contractor, he will be able to come up with a quote for how much your bathroom remodeling project will cost.
Decide on full rehab versus simple “facelift” type of remodel.
Now, if your bathroom remodeling job only entails a facelift, this will make your project quite simple and more affordable. Say for example, giving your bathroom a facelift can be done just by changing your vanity cabinets, faucet, pedestal sink, or perhaps purchasing new towels and shower curtains. A handyman can help you with these which will also cut costs.
In conclusion, if your house is 25 years old or older, we advise a complete and thorough bathroom remodel. This can be very time consuming and frustrating to the typical DIYer. So then a professional bathroom remodel contractor would be your best option.
