♦ Ask for referrals
As you start the hunt for a skilled renovator, check with friends or relatives for recommendations, or use the internet to find a few promising candidates. Additionally, the company that supplies the various fixtures for your bathroom renovations Auckland may be able to provide you with a renovator suggestion. Their recommendations can be valuable and ultimately save you the trouble of seeking someone out to oversee the project. For clients who had their renovation done by the recommended renovator, ask if they would employ the same contractor for their project again. Their answers can give you a clear overview of the renovator’s work.
♦ Look at credentials
On getting the most recommended renovators, contact them to find out if they have the necessary skills and licenses for your remodeling. Remember, bathroom renovation involves various tasks such as dealing with plumbing, tile replacements, lighting and much more. Therefore, do not take chances on just any renovator if you need your entire bathroom remodeled. Avoid renovators with a license in one job such as tiling when you also need to install new pipes or showers. Find out for one with a license to achieve all tasks you need to be done and one with required skills and experience. Also, research if the renovator you choose has a warranty for the job to be undertaken. Insurance helps you avoid obligation if an accident occurs in the task hence avoid additional liability.
♦ Interview your candidates
If you wish, arrange separate interviews with several contractors so they can view the work area, learn about the job and provide realistic bids. Interviewing helps you narrow down to the best contractor especially when you find it difficult to conclude on the right one from the several available. Take this opportunity to ask for their prices as well as the time management plan. If you have a timeline for your project, ask if they can complete it based on your deadline. How well a contractor communicates in the interview might just give you the best contractor to hire.
