Bathrooms might be one of the smallest rooms in any home, but they are highly labor-intensive rooms to renovate. The compactness of the room presents unique challenges during a renovation. Within several square feet, you have to address electrical, tiles, cabinetry, counters, plumbing and other extras including heated floors. While most people get excited about bathroom remodeling, it is not a good idea to try it on your own. To get it done right the first time, call in the experts to handle the renovation. The only way to effectively handle a bathroom renovation is by going through each of the steps to remodeling your bathroom with an expert. Below are the steps to a bathroom renovation we follow at RWC Windows, Doors, and More.
Step 1: Initial design consultation
After contacting our office and booking an appointment, the first steps to remodel your bathroom is a visit from our designer and project manager. The first part of the consultation will involve a lot of listening on the part of the designer and project manager. They will request you to talk about your ideas for the room before they can offer suggestions building on your ideas. After describing your vision for the room, the designer will use their experience and expertise to provide remodeling solutions. The designer will proceed to take measurements and pictures of the room. You will also get to discuss your budget and how they can optimize the use of the available funds.
Step 2: Design Presentation and Draft Proposal
Your next meeting with the designer and the project manager will be at our Design Center. You do not have to run around from one store to the next looking for materials to use during the renovation because at RWC Windows, Doors, and More, we have everything you need all under one roof making your renovation project easy and hustle free. We will assist you in picking materials depending on their aesthetics and practicality. During this meeting you will discuss and finalize all materials to be used including;
• The type of tiles to be used
• Fixtures such as tubs, sinks, and whirlpools
• Shower doors
• Vanity Tops
You will find out that bathroom fixtures account for 15% of the entire budget. At the end of the meeting, you will have a detailed proposal for the construction including the estimated costs. The goal of this meeting is to reduce the costly change of orders after the commencement of the project.
Step 3: Project proposal and contract
After selection of materials to be used, the designer and project manager can move forward to making a project proposal and contract. This is the last of the bathroom renovation steps. The proposal should include a detailed scope of work indicating what work you want to be done in the bathroom. You will also be provided with a budget proposal of all items to be used as well as the labor costs. After going through the proposal and agreeing to it, you can proceed to sign the contract. The contract indicates when the project is scheduled to start, the amount of deposit you should pay before work commences among other things. If everything in the contract is okay, you can proceed to sign it. On signing the contract, you will be introduced to the in-house mater carpenter so you can schedule construction.
