Before choosing a renovation company, make sure you know all of the facts. Below are 5 questions that you should ask in order to make an informed, educated decision about choosing a renovation company that will best suit your needs.
How long will the renovation take?
Before you get started there’s several questions you should ask your renovator. One of the most important questions to ask your renovator is the expected timeframe upfront. They should not only tell you their expected start and completion dates, but also inform you of important stages throughout the construction. Renovations often occur in areas that you use every day, such as your kitchen and bathroom renovation.
Therefore, going without these areas can be difficult, so knowing how long it may take will help you organise and plan around these renovations. It is also important not to rush your renovation, it’s a large investment and you want it completed correctly, not quickly.
How much will it cost?
It is important to ask for a quote or an estimate of the total price of your renovation. You want to ensure there are no hidden charges that you are unaware of. Knowing this will allow you to draw up a budget and decide if this is achievable for you. It is essential to go over all of the details within the renovators quote to make sure you don’t run into any extra costs along the way.
What are your qualifications?
In order to ensure that your renovator is not about to start a job with limited knowledge and expertise, it is important to gauge what qualifications they have. This is an open-ended question that should receive a detailed reply. For example, how long has he been in the business, do they have any references, have they completed similar jobs to the one you are needing, and can they provide any testimonials or pictures of previous work?
It is always a red flag if the renovators fail to provide you with the credentials of recent previous clients to speak to. If they provide you with some references, be sure to give them a call and ask them about their experience.
What are your qualifications?
Every contractor will provide a specific range of services. You need to have a clear understanding of what services the contractor can provide for your project. Some companies are happy to do renovations of all kinds, offering a more general building service, while others specialise in certain areas.
Are you fully insured?
Hiring someone who is not properly insured could put you at considerable financial and legal risk. They must be able to answer “yes” for your own safety and assurance. It is also important to get your contractor to provide you with proof of Workers’ Compensation coverage and liability insurance.
By asking these questions you will be able to gather the information you need to make an informed, educated decision and be left with a bathroom renovation that you are 100% happy with.
