While we all wish that we had that “do-it-yourself” gene, let’s face it – we don’t! For those of us that can’t DIY, fortunately there are plenty of others out there that can. If you have recently decided that you need a Santa Rosa Bathroom Remodeling Contractor and you can’t do it yourself, then you need to know the few simple tips that will help you hire a good, honest contractor for your job.
First off, forget the phone book. Those old things are not only antiquated, but they also don’t give you any real information. When it comes to most bathroom remodeling jobs, whether you hail from Santa Rosa or Santa Barbara, it’s best to ask around. Talk to your friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors. Find out who they have used for their bathroom remodel in the past or if they have heard about any local Santa Rosa contractors. Once you have collected the recommendations of those you trust, do your own online research for a few of the contractors. The more information you can gather the better.
Next, you’ll want to narrow down a few different contractors and call them up. Make arrangements to have them visit your home and bid on the job. Take your time in choosing the right contractor. Don’t rush your decision as it may be many years before you remodel again – if you even remodel it again.
Once you feel confident with the bid of your chosen contractor, make sure that you have everything in writing that your contractor has proposed for your bathroom remodel. Read the fine print and ask questions if you don’t understand something that your Santa Rosa contractor has in their contract.
Be a good customer and allow your contractor to work in peace, and without interruptions. After they have completed the job and you are satisfied with the project, be sure to pay them promptly and spread the word to your friends, family, coworkers and neighbors to get them future business.
