    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 picking the best company for you.

    Industry Credentials

    Begin vetting a company by asking two important questions about its local reputation. First, determine how long it's been operating and how many projects it's completed. Second, find out what industry groups it belongs to, such as the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). These organizations provide private certifications and ongoing education, which keep crews current with the latest best practices.

    Licensure and Insurance

    You might be surprised to learn that New York doesn't issue state licenses to residential remodelers. However, most cities and counties fill in the gap and issue licenses of their own. Requirements will vary depending on where you live, so we encourage you to contact the Bethlehem government for additional information.

    Photos

    Next, ask the bathroom company for a portfolio. Some contractors have physical copies, while others maintain a running webpage detailing their past projects. Thoroughly evaluate each photo to assess the quality of the crew's work. You might even find some design ideas for your own bathroom renovation.

    Consultation and Estimate

    Itemized written estimates are essential in the company selection process. A growing number of remodeling companies are offering virtual consultations, but we strongly advise beginning with an in-home visit. This way, the crew can see your bathroom firsthand and get the proper measurements. Pricing and services will vary from remodeler to remodeler, so we recommend getting three different written quotes for the most effective comparison.

    Customer Reviews

    Before you hire a bathroom remodel, check its online reputation using sites like the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website, Trustpilot, and Google. As you read about customers' positive and negative experiences, pay attention to how the company responds to complaints. It's a green flag if the team always tries to reach an amicable and satisfactory resolution.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Bathroom Remodeling in Bethlehem

    How is a bathroom renovation different from a bathroom remodel?

    A bathroom renovation typically involves smaller alterations, such as restoring a floor, painting and replacing light fixtures. A remodel, on the other hand, involves more extensive tasks like adding a new shower or relocating fixtures to different spots.

    How long does a bathroom remodel take?

    A bathroom remodel's duration will depend on your vision for the space. Most projects take between a few days to a month to complete.

    What is the most expensive part of a bathroom remodel?

    Generally, most homeowners find that adjusting a bathroom's floorplan is the most expensive part of a remodel. Most of the high labor costs come from making structural modifications, a task that often requires subcontracting to other companies. However, hauling away old materials and changing fixtures will also contribute to the higher price tag.

    What's the typical time to complete a bathroom remodel?

    Each bathroom remodel is unique. Ask your contractor for a copy of your proposed project's timeline. Minor jobs like replacing fixtures, painting, and reflooring could take a week or two. If you're modifying your bathroom's structure, there'll be some time added for permitting, inspections, and the work itself.

    If I remodel my bathroom in Bethlehem, what will my return on investment (ROI) be?

    While return on investment (ROI) will vary by location and project scope, a 2022 National Association of Realtors study found homeowners recovered 71% of their bathroom remodel costs on average. Large-scale projects in sought-after areas will yield the highest returns.
