This post is one in a series on remodeling small bathrooms and part of a sub-series on how to evaluate and select your contractor. For either of the lead posts, please select one of the links in the prior sentence.
Your remodeling project has some specific objectives that you (hopefully) thought through and wrote down during the planning and design of your bathroom.
The Solera Group provides expert bathroom remodeling services in the greater San Jose metro area.
It is not the case that every customer and every remodel have the same set of objectives, but it is imperative that your contractor understand YOUR primary needs.
The three main “legs” of every remodeling project are:
- Quality of the completed outcome
When you change one, you affect the others.
Perhaps you’ve recently come into some money and are finally having your ultimate dream bathroom built and it’s OK if it takes a bit longer and costs a bit more, as long as it comes out right.
On the other hand, perhaps you been negatively affected by our economic downturn then discovered significant wood rot in the wall behind your shower or under your floor. In this scenario your primary goal may be to keep the cost down, and although a separate shower and deep soaking tub would be nice, now is not the time.
Alternatively your remodel may be triggered by having friends or relatives arriving for a long term stay on a specified date and what you need most is for the room to be ready by a specific date.
The point is you need to make sure your contractor understand your primary goals (you may have more than one) and truly seems to get the importance of it.
In every remodeling project (as in life) tradeoffs are made. Having a common understanding of the primary goals helps you both make the right tradeoffs quickly.
