Even homeowners that have experience in DIY projects get a little nervous when it comes to a bathroom remodel. This is because other than the kitchen, the bathroom is very involved as far as the systems and skills that are needed to complete it. Bathroom remodels involve plumbing, electrical and tile work that all require a high level of skill. Then there may be issues with a subfloor that is rotting under a leaky shower. You may even discover plumbing that has become rusted and possibly crumbling.
Hire Bathroom Remodeling Contractors
Your bathroom is also a room that is in high demand. Many homeowners will feel the push to get it done in a timely manner which can become problematic. To avoid any possible problems calling the professionals to do it seems like a no brainer. You can either hire a general contractor to complete the job from start to finish or hire subcontractors to complete each stage of the process. Professionals will finish the job better and faster than you can.
Cost of a Bathroom Remodel
The reason that homeowners want to do it themselves is to save money, but is it worth it? For some people, the money saved may not be worth the hassle of having to do the work. There is a lot of value in hiring professionals to get the work done faster and most likely better than you could. Most homeowners with some experience can do some of the work, especially if they use contractor-grade materials that the pros use. Can you get the job done? Maybe. But should you? That is the more important question. There are other factors to consider too.
Bathroom Renovation Timeline
When you take on a DIY project you must remember that it will absolutely take longer. This can be a great inconvenience if it’s the only bathroom you have in your home. Lots of time can be saved by hiring professionals. Consider a small bathroom. A busy homeowner trying to fit a remodel in might have the job last months. That same remodel can be done in just a couple of weeks with a contractor.
