The decision to remodel your bathroom is a very serious one. It means that you must hire a bathroom contractor that you feel comfortable enough with to allow them into your home unsupervised. You need someone you can hold up to the highest standards, is honest, and who will do a great job within the budget allowed and on time. How do you know when you have chosen the right contractor?
Not only should you talk to your family and friends, but there is an organization called the National Association of the Remodeling Industry. If you contact them, they will be happy to give you a list of bathroom contractors in the Pittsburgh area. Another great resource is building inspectors, they can tell you which contractors’ projects come up to code. Finally, there are your local hardware stores and lumber yards. They see and talk to contractors every day and know which ones buy good materials and are in good standing financially.
Conduct Phone Interviews
When you have decided which of the contractors you would like to know more about, contact them by phone and asked him a few quick questions such as:
* Is your project too small for them?
* Are they willing to provide you with a list of their prior clients?
* If they do take on your remodel, how many other projects would they have going at the same time?
In this way, you will be better able to get an idea of the company stability, availability, and their reliability.
It is an Expensive Project
You should also meet any of the bathroom contractors in Pittsburgh that you’re interested in working with face-to-face, have each of them bid on your project, and always get everything in writing. If a contractor says they’re willing to complete the project for a very low bid, that is a red flag the most likely means that he or she will be cutting corners.
