Bathroom Remodeling, Finding the Right Contractor

As a home owner, bathroom renovation work is one of the most highly completed remodel jobs that home owners choose to undertake, if they are considering multiple room remodels. Not only is the bathroom a place home owners choose to do remodeling work for personal comfort, but it is one of the two rooms (kitchen being the other), that brings the highest return on investment, if the home owners are planning on placing the home for sale. So, whether it is being done for personal enjoyment, or to try to improve resale value, bathrooms are a big job to undertake.

Hiring the right crew

Making sure you hire a company that is fully licensed, has only certified contractors working for them, and is insured, are things to look for. Doing this guarantees the job will be done right, you will get guarantees on the quality of the work, and if you are not happy with the work, the contractors will remedy the situation, in order to give the home owners what they want when remodeling the space.

What to focus on

Once you have chosen the right contractors, you have to know where you will get the most for your money. Focusing on convenience factors is something that the home owners should consider. From a walk in shower (rather than tub), to a mirror with built in medicine chest for additional storage, a bathroom that is fully functional, and updated, is what buyers will be looking for. If you are limited on budget, focus on replacing outdated items; install a new toilet, replace the fixtures and knobs, change to all stainless steel towel racks (rather than cheap looking plastic). Focusing on functionality, ease of mobility, and newer, sleek looking finishes, are all qualities a buyer will appreciate, and are things that the home owner will enjoy if they plan on staying in the home.

Budget considerations

If you have leaky faucets, and a wooden toilet seat, it is obvious where to start. But, if everything is in fairly good condition, focus on areas that make the bathroom space uniform. From separate sinks in the master bath, to stainless steel finishes, nonslip tile floors, and easy to clean surfaces. There are many things you can do, even on a tight budget; you simply have to work with honest contractors, discuss all aspects of the work being done, and take their suggestions, as to which work will most benefit the space (and resale value).

With so many changes you can make, if you are planning on doing any remodeling work on the home, the bathroom is a great option to consider. Not only will it make the home more functional and up-to-date, it will also bring back the highest returns, when it’s time to sell.
