Take the Scary Out of Bathroom Remodeling With a Professional Contractor
The average homeowner will remodel at least one bathroom during their lifetime. Many DIY homeowners will debate tacking a bathroom remodel themselves after doing a little research and looking at the costs involved in hiring a contractor. A DIY bathroom remodel is an attractive prospect on paper, but there are some common issues that even the most experienced homeowners tend to overlook.
It may not seem so at first glance, but hiring a professional contractor nearly always saves time, money, and energy, while ensuring the safety of the homeowners and their house.
Hiring a Trained Professional Will Reduce the Risk of Injury
Aside from kitchens, bathrooms are the trickiest rooms to remodel. Tight spaces in bathrooms make the work harder and more dangerous. Contorting the body to work on corners or behind toilets or under sinks is asking for pulled muscles, banged heads, and cut fingers. Depending on the nature of the remodel, it may also involve ripping out old fixtures and cabinets, which can be hazardous when not done right.
Replacing a bathtub is one major challenge DIYers face when tackling a bathroom remodel. It can be hazardous and challenging work. Not to mention the issue of working with electrical wiring and fixtures. To safely and effectively tackle a bathroom remodel, it’s imperative to know about plumbing, framing, electrical work, tiling, flooring, and fixture installation.
Get Everything Done Right the First Time To Save Money
One major factor homeowners tend to overlook when planning a bathroom remodel is the potential for the unexpected. Something is nearly always bound to go wrong on a complicated and involved project, and dealing with that issue is guaranteed to cost money in one way or another. Discovering a rotting substructure under the tub or a pinhole leak in the sink’s plumbing can throw a wrench into the process.
Many times, homeowners get to a point in their bathroom remodel where they simply can’t move on. At this point, they have to call in a professional anyway, who has to spend time fixing issues that the DIYers unknowingly created. In the end, the whole thing costs money and time– which is, arguably, even more important.
Hire Someone Who Knows What They’re Doing To Save Time
Everyone has one thing that can never be replaced: time. The majority of DIY bathroom remodels take significantly more time than originally anticipated. Of course, time is money, but it’s also more than that. It’s the most important thing for many people because it gives them the opportunity to spend time with their loved ones or work on important life goals that can’t be bought with currency.
Plus, there’s the issue of being down a bathroom as the remodel is taking place. This begins as a minor inconvenience but turns into a major bother as the days stretch on, and the bathroom remains unusable. This is especially true for large families who must share a bathroom as a result.
