Selecting a bathroom renovation company

Choosing the right company to carry out your bathroom renovation is one of the most important aspects of your preparation. It is beneficial to conduct some research into local businesses to get an understanding of the types of projects they take on. Look for a bathroom renovation company that has a solid track record of delivering successful renovations for homeowners in your area, specifically bathrooms similar to the one you are planning to renovate.

When shortlisting your options, follow these simple checks so that you can easily compare what each company can offer.

REFERRALS & TESTIMONIALS
If you have family, friends, neighbours or co-workers who have received a bathroom renovation from any of the companies you are considering, ask if they can share their experience with you. It is especially important to hear any strong positive or negative feedback as that will paint a clear picture of how that company operates.

Often you may not have anyone who can refer you to a company that they recommend. In this case you can find many testimonials and reviews for bathroom renovation companies on the internet. Check the websites for each of the companies on your short-list and compare their testimonials and online reviews. In addition, you may be able to find active conversations about bathroom renovation companies in online forums and social media groups. Discussions on these sites can provide helpful insights into the bathroom renovation businesses in your area.

Referrals and testimonials are very valuable as you can learn what other people have to say about their experience and see how the company responds to the feedback they receive. This often has a significant impact on the final decision for which bathroom renovator homeowners select.

EXPERIENCE
When conducting your research you should endeavour to find the most experienced bathroom renovation companies. View their website for examples of the projects they have completed, find out how long they have been in business and get an overall idea of how professional their business looks to be.

Trusting that a bathroom renovator can complete the work that you require is vital. Therefore, knowing that the bathroom renovation company you have selected has successfully delivered projects similar to yours can be very reassuring.

Additionally, if you have a bathroom renovation project which is complex or you have some unique ideas that you want to implement, an experienced bathroom renovation company will be well equipped to deliver your design.

Some questions you may wish to ask:

  • How many bathroom renovations have they completed?
  • How long have you been in business?
  • How many people will be working on the job?
  • How will the tradespeople be managed?

LICENCES & CREDENTIALS
The next step when selecting a reputable bathroom renovator is making sure that they are fully trained and qualified. It is essential that your tradespeople are licensed and insured to work on site. This is a legal requirement and no work should be conducted unless you are assured that all construction is being done by qualified and licensed tradespeople.

If you do hire an unlicensed tradesperson, you could be liable for anything that goes wrong during the renovation, such as damage or injury. So make sure that you ask for their insurance information and check their industry certifications before committing any bathroom renovation company to your project.

Some questions you may wish to ask:

  • What warranties and guarantees are being offered on the services and products?
  • Is there a contingency plan in place if problems arise during the renovation?
  • Who is the best person to speak to onsite?

COMPREHENSIVE QUOTES
Once you have narrowed down your renovator options, you can request they provide a detailed quote. Many bathroom renovation companies will come to you in order to provide a thorough estimate for your renovation. This is the best way to ensure the quote is accurate, as they can see the bathroom first hand and discuss your expectations.

When comparing quotes, it is important to look at more than the final price. It is best to compare everything that you are receiving as there may be differences in quality of workmanship and materials. Consider that a poor quality renovation could cost you more in the long run, with repairs and maintenance.

Make sure that you compare your quotes like for like. If one company is offering a service or material, compare the value of that as closely as you can with the other renovation companies you have shortlisted.

Some questions you may wish to ask:

  • Clarify what the quote includes and what is not covered?
  • Is the price fixed?
  • What products will they be using in your renovation?
  • Confirm the timeline you need the renovation completed in.
  • Ensure you are happy with the products they use.
