How to Ensure Your Bathroom Remodel is On Time and Under Budget
Everyone wants their bathroom remodel project to be done within the estimated schedule and within the estimated budget, yet we’ve all heard stories of this not happening.
How do you ensure your does?
Although this may sound a little harsh (I hope not) what is most important is having realistic expectations up front.
Right now I’m working with a homeowner who (like others) wants a top quality bathroom remodel and wants to pay for a bathroom of lesser quality.
I understand this. We all want the best value. If you need a car, you probably understand a brand new BMW is not available for $15,000.
I think the reason people expect their remodel projects to cost less is people buy remodels less often than they buy cars.
So by all means create an outline of a design, get various preliminary bids from various remodelers, take reasonable action to reduce your costs (maybe you can do the demo yourself – for example).
There are some contractors who will take the low bid because they know change orders are coming. These change orders commonly occur for two reasons:’
- Hidden damage: We almost always uncover hidden damage during the demo.
- Scope creep (also known as client desire): During the project clients often ask for things that did not occur to them at first.
A contractor who is up front about both hidden damage and scope creep and schedule may not look like the best choice up front, but often they are as they help you set realistic expectations about quality, cost, and schedule.
