When you are seriously considering small bathroom renovation, one of the key items on your list will be the budget. The bathroom renovation project budget is specific to each individual person or family, and it will be up to you to conduct your research to find the best value for your money in services and materials.
If completing your project is going to cost your time and money from your own employment, it may be best to hire a contractor anyway and save yourself the added expense.
Don’t forget that with a small bathroom remodeling you must research and obtain the required permits and any subcontractors and inspectors—these must be included in your budget. Some states require certain permits and inspections for certain renovation work, like plumbing and electricals. Cutting and placing tiles, for example, may require the expertise of a specialist to ensure the quality of the finished product.
For you Do-it-Yourselfers
You won’t need a contractor for every aspect of your small bathroom renovation project. For example, the clean up at the end of every work day. But, depending on the size of the project, you should discuss with the contractor working with you on your bathroom renovation project, whether it is most cost effective and safe to do the clean up yourself.
Another aspect a homeowner can do his or herself is the installation of new light fixtures. A professional electrician might be required if any rewiring is required. Your contractor can help you determine which parts of your bathroom renovation project you can complete on your own to save money.
Many homeowners relegate their responsibilities to issuing the checks to the contractor while they take care of the entire project. The bathroom renovation contractor can help you track progress, and ensure that the project is done on time and on budget.
