Bathroom Renovation Newmarket can be an overwhelming process. Before you can reach out to a contractor you need to determine the scope of the project, including the things that you want to change or keep. Whatever it is that you plan to change with your bathroom, everything needs to be done with utmost perfection. When you are planning your bathroom renovation there are certain things that you should keep in mind.
Style and Budget
The very first step to planning the renovation is deciding the changes that you want to make. If you are unsure about the recent trends that are going on or having trouble visualizing, you can always search for the latest trends online or go through the magazines. Once you have decided on the design, the next step is to set the budget. It is important to have a realistic budget for the kind of bathroom that you want. It is a great idea to have some extra money allotted in case of any mishap or delay in the renovation.
Hiring the contractor
Once all of that has been decided the very next step is to reach out to a contractor. It is okay to reach out to multiple contractors and take their quotes. When you are interacting with them find out about the services that they provide, the time it would take to complete the project, whether they will handle the project or there would be a project manager and how they source the materials for the job. Apart from them, you should also gain knowledge about whether they would carry out the demolition and clean up after the work is done and how they tend to keep the property safe. Also, find out about the experience that they have with such projects. Decide on a contractor only when they find your budget and you feel that they are the perfect fit for you.
Estimating renovation costs
Estimating the renovation costs can help you to determine the budget and the style of bathroom you want to opt for. For example, if you are planning to go for a complete renovation then it will cost more than a partial one. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money you can plan a partial renovation which would include minor changes in the bathroom like repainting it or changing certain fixtures. Once you have decided which type of renovation you want to opt for you, the other things which will have an impact on the cost, would be the contractor that you hire and the charges of the labour. The quality and type of material used for the job, along with the preparation needed to carry out the renovation also play a determining factor. The cost of raw materials in your neighbourhood also chimes into the budget. When you are doing your research to draw up an estimate, it is crucial that you set aside about 30% of your budget in case of an emergency. However, most of the contractors should be able to give you an exact quote after assessing the property and calculating all the materials needed.
