Factors to Consider When Choosing a Bathroom Remodeling Contractor

A strong pre-hiring process can assist in steering clear of unethical companies or designers who don't share your vision. Follow the steps in this section to help you select the right business.

Industry Credentials

Ask each contractor about how long it's been remodeling bathrooms and how many projects it's finished. You should also ask what trade group memberships the team has. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) is just one organization offering continuing education programs and certificates for remodeling professionals.

Licensure and Insurance

Iowa doesn't require residential remodelers to get licensed, but they must still register with the Division of Labor if they make at least $2,000 per year. Registration shows a company complies with workers' comp, unemployment, and bond requirements. It can also show you how prudent contractors are about the details of their job and your project.

Photos

Most bathroom contractors maintain running portfolios with photos of completed remodels. Ask for a copy so you can check different teams' expertise. Portfolios can also give you design ideas or prompt additional questions.

Consultation and Estimate

Thorough written estimates are essential in the company selection process. A growing number of remodelers are offering virtual consultations, but we strongly advise beginning with an in-home visit. This way, the crew can inspect your bathroom firsthand and get accurate measurements.

To maximize your value, we suggest getting at least three different written estimates and comparing them head-to-head to find the best deal.

Customer Reviews

Next, research a company's online reputation by going to sites like Google, Trustpilot, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website.

When examining past customers' experiences, hone in on how the company reacts to negative feedback. A trustworthy contractor will seek out a satisfactory resolution wherever possible.
