Important Bathroom Remodeling Questions to Ask BEFORE You Start
Is it now time to start your bathroom remodel planning?
If it is there are some important questions you need to consider before you start.
What’s Your Budget?
This is important not just because it is the limit of how much money you’ve allocated. It’s important because during the course of a remodeling projects, things change.
Why do things change?
- Hidden damage
- Customer desire (also known as scope creep).
I strongly recommend that whatever your budget is, you allocate an extra 10% to each of those items above.
This means that if your top budget is $25,000, and you need an extra 20%, you need to either reduce your budget down to $21,000.
Cost of Hidden Damage
It is never possible to know what will be found behind the demo until the demo is done. It’s not uncommon to find issues of wood rot and plumbing issues behind the demo. When you find such damage you must deal with it.
Cost of Scope Creep
I have never NOT encountered scope creep during the course of a remodeling project. The homeowner realizes their new shower stall is large enough for two completely separate shower heads and shower controls and they want it, or they decide that in putting an outlet inside the medicine cabinet makes sense. Whatever the project, something always comes up. From a contracting perspective, this triggers a change order, and each change order has a cost associated with it.
