Probably most people would agree with the statement that at least one bathroom in their home could use a remodel, unless their home is brand new. Whether it’s flawed design, cramped space, or out-of-date materials that have you down – a bathroom remodel can solve those problems.
Many people are turning to DIY bathroom remodels in order to get the job done, either because they’ve seen a lot of amazing transformations on reality TV or they would like to keep the costs as low as possible. Completing a bathroom remodel by yourself is certainly something to be proud of, and a great goal if you’re into DIY, being handy, and saving money. However, if you aren’t well above average at handy work or construction, you may want to rethink your strategy. Here are the Top 5 reasons to have a professional do the job for you.
The number one reason to bring in a professional is that they can do it in less than half the time, on average. Professionals are trained, seasoned, and very fast at analyzing, deciding, and solving your particular bathroom problems. A major complaint with DIY projects is that they tend to take a lot of time to complete, especially because you’ll be doing it around all of your other scheduled activities and obligations. Bathrooms are essential parts of our homes – you can’t just have them roped off for a month while you do a DIY remodel! Calling a professional will ensure that you get it done in a number of days, not weeks (or even months!).
No matter how many Home Improvement Network shows you watch, or how many tutorials you study you simply can’t replicate the years of experience that come with the professionals you hire for a bathroom remodel. They know the tricks and tips for certain types of tile, caulk, glass, wood, and any other materials you may want to use. They know when to say when, and are not likely to make major mistakes. When you DIY the chances of you making several mistakes before learning the correct technique are very high, meaning you might waste time, money and resources before getting to the actual work.
Now this one may seem strange, but it’s true. Many people find, after completing their DIY bathroom remodel, that they spent way more than expected due to mistakes, corrections, and unforeseen costs. Not to mention lost free time which sometimes means lost revenue on your part as well. Hiring a professional like Mountain States Kitchen & Bath is not as expensive as you might expect, and the chance of random or unforeseen costs is very low. It’s worth it!
Bathroom remodels are particularly problematic because you are dealing with water. Any problems with pipes or water damage could mean serious issues in the future. Professionals know what to avoid, what to look for, and how to leave your bathroom dry, safe, and protected. Don’t risk home damage just to save a few bucks.
