Hiring a professional kitchen and bathroom remodeler can seem like a daunting task. There are many things to consider and lots of questions you need to ask before hiring a kitchen or bathroom remodeler in Surrey.
Most remodelling projects are expensive, so you'd want to be sure that you are hiring the right contractor for the job. But how do you choose the right contractor for a job?
To give you an idea of what kind of questions you should ask, here are the top queries you should consider posing during your kitchen and bathroom remodelling project in Surrey.
1. What is your experience?
Experience is everything in this space. You will want to choose a company with experience in a range of styles, fits and sizes. The breadth of experience is everything.
2. What does your warranty cover?
Snagging jobs are common. But you will want to understand what is covered and what is not so that you can start your new partnership off on the right foot, with no hidden.
3. How much does your service cost?
This will depend on your style, budget, and timescales, so, likely, you will only get a cost once you've built out a project plan and know what to expect. A good company will tell you if your budget is reasonable, based on the look and finish you want to achieve, or not.
4. What is your average turnaround time?
This is a key question; some companies will promise the earth, or an excellent price, only to find you must wait 10 weeks because the company is so busy. A reputable company will only take on the amount of work they can service, without outsourcing the work to subcontracts with no proven history.
5. Can I buy some of the fixtures and fittings myself?
You should absolutely be able to do this, but keep in mind the contractor may be able to source the same items at a reduced cost, thanks to 'trade discounts' Its best to clarify who is responsible for what, and remember, if you do decide to supply elements of the kitchen or bathroom fit, make sure you order in good time.
A final note: If the contractor does not have a showroom, this should never deter you. The overheads and cost of physical goods in a showroom must be paid for by someone, and that someone is most likely you!
If you can meet the contractor and review your plans, you should get the best of all worlds.
