Factors to Consider When Choosing a Bathroom Remodeling Contractor
A strong pre-hiring process can assist in steering clear of unscrupulous companies or designers who don't share your vision. Follow the steps in this section to help you make your company choice.
As you discuss your project with bathroom remodelers, ask them how many years of experience they have under their belt. Many remodelers are members of trade organizations like the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). Professional certifications can also hold professional accreditations that show 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 Greece government for additional information.
Next, ask the bathroom company for a portfolio. Some contractors print physical copies, while others design a running webpage detailing their past projects. Carefully examine each photo to assess the quality of the crew's work. You might even discover some design ideas for your own bathroom renovation.
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 expectations, vision, and goals. To maximize your value, we suggest getting at least three different written estimates and comparing them side by side to find the best deal.
Next, research a company's online reputation by going to sites like Trustpilot, Google, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website. While you read past customers' experiences, hone in on how the company reacts to negative feedback. Reputable remodelers will seek out a satisfactory resolution wherever possible.
