Factors to Consider When Choosing a Bathroom Remodeling Contractor

To weed out businesses that aren't ethical or don't have positive community feedback, it's important to keep a strong pre-hiring process. By using the steps in this section, you'll be on the right track to choosing the best company for you.

Industry Credentials

Determine how many years a bathroom remodeling company has been in business and how many projects it's completed. Also ask about any accreditations and certifications it holds. Membership in the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) or similar organizations can show the company's devotion to its services.

Licensure and Insurance

In Missouri, remodeling contractors don't need a state license. However, companies must still register with the Secretary of State for tax purposes. Local licenses might also be required, so we encourage you to contact the Independence city government for more information.

Photos

Ask for a copy of the bathroom company's portfolio, which includes pictures from past remodels it's completed for homeowners. This is primarily so you can examine the quality of a team's work. However, it could also provide design ideas for your own bathroom renovation or raise questions about what the team can accomplish for your project.

Consultation and Estimate

You should always seek a written and itemized estimate for your project costs. The estimate should be based on an in-person consultation with the contractor's team. This way, the team can inspect your bathroom and get a sense of your goals, vision, and expectations. Services and pricing will differ from contractor to contractor, so we recommend getting three different itemized estimates for the most effective comparison.

Customer Reviews

Before signing any contracts, always research a bathroom remodeling company's reputation using Google, Trustpilot, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website. While reading about customers' positive and negative experiences, pay attention to how a company responds to complaints. It's a green flag if the team continually seeks out an amicable and satisfactory resolution.

Frequently Asked Questions About Bathroom Remodeling in Independence

How is a bathroom remodel different from a bathroom renovation?

A bathroom remodel is more labor-intensive than a renovation. A remodel involves removing, adding, or replacing aspects of the bathroom, whereas a renovation involves making cosmetic tweaks to existing fixtures. For example, installing a new shower is considered a remodel. Restoring a floor is considered a renovation.

How long does a bathroom remodel take?

It can take a few days to a month to redo a bathroom, depending on the size and complexity of the project. Before work begins, ask your remodeling company for a timeline estimate in writing.

What is the most expensive part of a bathroom remodel?

The most expensive part of a bathroom remodel is altering the floorplan. Demolishing fixtures, adding/removing walls, and disposing of old materials all have above-average labor costs.

Do remodeling companies offer preset packages for smaller-scale jobs?

Yes. If all you need is a new vanity, tub, shower, or another fixture, your bathroom company might suggest a preset package for less cost. Some contractors can even retrofit new fixtures above your old ones, saving time and maximizing value.

If I have a small bathroom, how can I maximize my space and make it feel larger?

If you have a small bathroom, consider using vertical wall cabinets or tall, narrow shelves for storage. Other ways to maximize space or make your bathroom feel larger include:
  • corner showers instead of tubs
  • small-scale tile patterns
  • a large mirror above the sink/vanity
  • pedestal sinks or wall-mounted faucets
  • and glass shower doors
