3 Reasons to Leave Bathroom Remodeling to the Pros
October 27, 2014
If you watch HGTV or other home renovation networks and shows, you are probably overflowing with bathroom remodeling ideas. Vessel sinks, wall sconces, low-flow fixtures—there are many ways you can improve both the style and efficiency of your dated bathroom. However, don’t make a mistake of thinking that bathroom remodeling is as easy as TV shows portray it. There are hours of hard work and, likely, several mistakes that didn’t make it into the final footage. When it comes to Baltimore bathroom remodeling, it’s worth hiring a professional, and here are a few reasons why.
High-Quality End Result
You know you can replace a faucet, and maybe even lay tile, but can you do it neatly and accurately? Gaping seams, uneven cuts or asymmetrical application don’t exactly scream professional. And a few little “imperfections” here and there could be fine with you, but keep in mind that you might be selling the house a few years down the road. A nicely remodeled bathroom will certainly add value to your home; a poorly remodeled one—not so much.
Even if you are handy with a wrench and a caulk gun, it takes time to complete a bathroom remodeling project. From demo to showtime, it could take weeks for someone employed full-time and working without assistance. That’s weeks of not being able to use this bathroom, battling the construction dust and not being able to devote your time to the things and people you love. A professional bathroom remodeling company, on the other hand, can give you a new bathroom in a matter of days.
It’s understandable: DIY eliminates the labor costs. However, trusting a professional with bathroom remodeling also has its hidden savings. First of all, it’s better to hire a pro from the beginning than realize half-way into the project that you bit off more than you could chew. Second of all, bathroom remodeling companies are often well-connected and can get you a better deal on materials, such as tile or even paint. And, third of all, time is money and with DIY you’ll surely spend more time. That’s more trips to the home improvement store, more cleaning products to keep the mess in check and more phone calls to your plumber friend.
If you are itching to get your remodeling fix or need to cut down the costs, ask your Maryland bathroom remodeling pro if you can do some of the tasks yourself. For example, you could perform the demolition or go pick up supplies and materials. Or get your creative juices flowing and make a custom wall art or a counter organizer. And be sure to let the Bath Doctor know if you need help with your bathroom remodeling project.
