• They have the skills and experience and will provide a professional finish.
• The job will be completed quicker, as a renovator will coordinate all trades on your behalf.
• They are well placed to handle and resolve any unforeseen problems that may arise.
• Most bathroom renovators will pass on a trade discount for all hardware and tiles purchased on from their trade account.
• Any reputable renovator will ask you to sign a works contract that should include personal details of both parties, costs, and terms & conditions (T&Cs). Part of the T&Cs should be a guarantee of works to be completed. This gives you assurance that all products or services provided will be replaced or repaired if not to standard.
The key to hiring the right bathroom renovator for you. Look for experience and testimonials. You may wish to ask the renovator if you can speak to one of their clients to ask about their renovating experience.
Following is a rough outline:
Firstly, you need a design of your preferred bathroom layout. If you need help, look for an experienced bathroom renovator. Changing the layout of your room, could add to plumbing costs. It would pay to find a bathroom renovator who is also a plumber (like Phil!), so you learn during his onsite visit, what are your options and potential costs.
A scope of works detailing tiling heights and tile sizes; plumbing, glazing, electrical, painting, and plastering requirements; cabinetry including cabinets, vanity. If this is your first-time renovating, a bathroom renovator can provide you with advice and a quote, saving you time and costly mistakes.
You can then choose to get trades to quote from your scope of works direct or engage a bathroom renovator.
There are quite a few trades involved in a bathroom and laundry renovation, which is one of the main reasons why people choose a renovator to manage their project.
Coordinating trades and problem-solving unforeseen events, can be a headache. But, if you are happy for the renovation to potentially take longer to save money, you may choose to do-it-yourself. Just do not skimp on plumbing and electrical works, as this may prove costly in the long run.
Tiling is a key feature of any wet area and is around roughly 30-35% of the overall cost. Wall tiling to the ceiling adds not only to the tiling cost but also the cost of tiles. Cost aside, tiling to the ceiling is a luxury trend that can completely transform a bathroom.
If you simply wish to refresh your bathroom with mid-price range fixtures and fittings, to the same positions as existing, this is possible for a budget of around $10,000.
If you would like to build your dream bathroom to a specific budget, then working with a bathroom renovator to determine what is possible, might be the best option for you.
