    This Old House empowers homeowners with the knowledge and tools they need to tackle various projects and navigate the complexities of homeownership.

    Factors to Consider When Choosing a Bathroom Remodeling Contractor

    Before you hire a bathroom company, you'll want to ensure they're reputable. We recommend following these steps as you get estimates.

    Industry Credentials

    As you discuss your project with bathroom remodelers, ask them how many years of experience they have . Many remodeling companies are members of trade groups like the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). Professional certifications can also hold professional certifications that demonstrate expertise.

    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 Colonie government for additional information.

    Photos

    Most bathroom contractors maintain running portfolios with photos of completed projects. Request a copy so you can confirm different teams' expertise. Portfolios can also provide design ideas or prompt additional questions.

    Consultation and Estimate

    You should always seek an itemized estimate for your project costs. The estimate should be based on an in-person consultation with a company representative. This way, the crew can inspect your bathroom and get a sense of your goals, expectations, and vision. To maximize your value, we suggest getting at least three different cost breakdowns and comparing them side by side to find the best deal.

    Customer Reviews

    Before signing any contracts, always research a bathroom remodeling company's reputation using Trustpilot, Google, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website. Most companies have both positive and negative reviews. As you go through each one, pay close attention to how the contractor responds to dissatisfied customers. Reputable contractors will always work to make things right.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Bathroom Remodeling in Colonie

    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 elements. For example, replacing a shower is considered a remodel. Refinishing a floor is considered a renovation.

    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 finish.

    What are the bathroom design trends?

    Colonie homeowners are increasingly favoring opulent, luxurious aesthetics for their bathrooms. Features like high-end stone tile, polished marble vanities, real wood cabinets and bold paint colors can make your space feel more elegant, and the look might not cost as much as you think. However, just because something is trendy doesn't mean it'll fit your unique vision. We recommend turning to magazines, websites, and your contractor's in-house designers for personalized ideas.

    How can I make the most of limited space in a small bathroom during a remodel?

    To make the most of limited space, your bathroom remodeler might recommend any of the following design elements:
    • small-scale tile patterns
    • corner showers with glass doors
    • a larger mirror above the sink/vanity
    • tall and narrow shelves
    • vertical cabinets
    • and pedestal sinks/wall-mounted faucets

    Do I have to leave my home during the remodeling process?

    You usually won't have to leave your home for a bathroom remodel. Even if the crew needs to shut off water, they might be able to do it on a small scale so you can still use other bathrooms in your home. If you have mobility issues, young kids, a work-from-home job, or if the bathroom is the only location in your home to bathe or shower, be sure to plan with friends and family.
