Being stuck at home has many homeowners eyeing potential DIY projects to stay busy. But, there are a few downsides to attempting some remodels, especially if you are working in the bathroom. This area of the home is filled with plumbing infrastructure, critical waterproof finishes and other complex bath products or materials. It may be better to hire a professional contractor to complete your shower installation or bathtub replacement instead.
How Can a Professional Contractor Benefit You?
Hiring a professional contractor offers plenty of benefits for homeowners who may not be up to a DIY project. Taken all together, these positives can make the cost of an expert worthwhile.
Contractors Can Source the Materials and Fixtures for Your Bathroom More Easily
Most contractors will already have a number of wholesale sources lined up to obtain the materials needed for your bathroom renovation at a more affordable rate. Contractors also tend to partner with major brands to provide installation of their products. Even better, these contractors are factory trained by these brands to use their products correctly for long-lasting results.
Contractors Work Quickly to Complete the Project
You are a busy person with a life to run. That DIY bathroom remodel will likely get delayed and pushed back a few times before it's completed, all while you're trying to enjoy your home without disruption. A contractor is paid to focus solely on your bathroom project and will probably work hard to get the job finished as soon as possible.
You Can Get More Complicated Bathroom Remodels Finished with a Contractor
Most homeowners don’t feel comfortable enough in their plumbing knowledge to tackle those more involved remodels. Let a trained and certified contractor help you understand the plumbing infrastructure of your tub or shower area to ensure that nothing gets damaged or connected incorrectly.
Trained Contractors Provide More Skillful Installations
As a DIYer, you will make a few mistakes here and there during the remodel. These small imperfections might not be noticeable in a replacement shower or the bath wall surround, but you’ll always know they exist. Contractors have years of experience under their belts, so they’ll be less prone to making mistakes. If you're going to commit to such a big project, why risk chips, cracks, and peeling?
Contractors Offer Warranties to Protect Your New Bathroom Remodel
You can also find contractors that offer workmanship warranties on their services too. These warranties provide coverage in case the bath product was installed incorrectly, or the contractor caused some unknown damage. If you accidentally mess up that bath conversion or tub installation, there won’t be a workmanship warranty in place to protect you.
