Factors to Consider When Choosing a Bathroom Remodeling Contractor
Before you sign a contract with a bathroom company, you'll want to ensure they're reliable. We recommend following these steps as you gather estimates.
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 has. Membership in the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) or similar organizations demonstrates the company's dedication to its services.
Licensure and Insurance
The Texas state government doesn't license bathroom remodeling companies, but cities and counties frequently do. Remodelers will also have to subcontract electrical, HVAC, and plumbing work the project needs. Before signing a contract, contact the Dallas government to verify what licenses are required and your chosen company's standing with local officials.
Request 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 caliber of a team's work. However, it could also provide design ideas for your own bathroom renovation or generate questions about what the team can do for your project.
Consultation and Estimate
You'll ultimately hire a remodeler based on itemized estimates. While some contractors offer online estimates, little compares to an in-person consultation. This way, you can get the necessary measurements taken, discuss your goals, and meet the crew. We recommend getting estimates from at least three different contractors so you can compare pricing.
Next, research a company's online reputation by going to sites like Trustpilot, Google, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website. Most contractors have both positive and negative reviews. While examining each one, note how the contractor responds to dissatisfied customers. A good company will always strive to make things right.
How Much Does a Bathroom Remodel Cost?
Some more complex projects, like installing tankless water heaters or rewiring electrical systems, require subcontracting in many jurisdictions and will increase your overall cost. See common remodel costs for different projects in the table below:
