Like any other major home improvement project, a bathroom remodel can be an overwhelming endeavor. A lot of decisions have to be made before you push through with it, from selecting the right products to deciding how much you can spend. These crucial steps often come before this all-important aspect: finding and working with a remodeling contractor.
Knockout Renovation®, your local home remodeler, shares a simple checklist you can use to keep your bathroom remodeling project on track to ensure the whole thing runs smoothly.
In this section of the checklist, start by separating your wants and needs. That way, you have a clear picture of your priorities, especially if you are facing a tough situation. Also, devise a ballpark estimate for your bathroom remodel. Ideally, you need a 10% buffer to anticipate unforeseen circumstances and expenses during the project. Then, determine the timeline for the renovation. The project should not coincide with other important life events.
Do Your Research
Now that you have ticked the boxes on the planning phase of your checklist, it is time to delve into research. In other words, use the time you have to find a reputable remodeling contractor for your project. Ask everyone you know in the area—friends, extended family, colleagues—about their home improvement experiences. Search the internet for the best ones, as well. Consider visiting the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) for companies bound by strict business practices.
Get Started With the Remodel
Before you sign the dotted line on the contract, be sure to read the fine print. Discuss with the contractor the arrangements that must be done and other concerns you might have. Finalize your plans for your home to make way for the remodeling pros.
