Do-It-Yourself or Contractor?

When you decide to invest in bathroom remodeling, do you DIY or call in a professional bathroom contractor. The DIY route will be cheaper but you really need to think about the pros and cons of hiring a contractor versus conducting a large remodeling project on your own.

DIY Bathroom Remodeling

A proficient DIY'r can probably accomplish any of the following tasks without the help of a Bathroom Contractor:

  • replacing a sink, toilet or bath using existing plumbing
  • installing new light fixtures / changing existing lighting 
  • installing mirrors
  • installing shelves
  • painting bathroom walls
  • replacing floor coverings and tiles

    Contractor Remodeling
    Some projects may require expert skills and specific knowledge of building and plumbing codes. Consider a contractor if your remodeling schemes include:
  • adding or removing bathroom walls
  • adding heating systems
  • moving a bath, shower or sink where new plumbing is required
  • installing new ventilating system that runs through the roof

    Remodeling Tips

    Quality Counts
    Remember to carefully check out the quality of all the new bathroom fixtures and fittings that you’re considering using in your new bathroom – the range of guarantees varies wildly from 12 months to 25 years, so choose wisely.

    Bathrooms are also becoming a 'fashion statement' and may look dated more quickly than you imagined, so paying for very high quality fittings will be pointless if you change them quickly. Remember, you use your bathroom every day so make sure your bathroom remodeling results are what YOU need and not what fashion dictates.

    Finally, prioritize. Make sure your bathroom remodeling happens in the correct order. For example, don’t paint your bathroom walls if you think you may do a bathroom floor replacement!
