How to Choose a Bathroom Fitter?

Renovating your bathroom is an exciting journey, you may have spent ages deciding on what furniture and which colours to go with what, you’ll be looking for a bathroom fitter to put everything together. Having this type of work done in your home can be very exciting, but choosing the right bathroom fitter can either make or break the project. 

We have some tips to keep in mind when choosing your bathroom fitter.

Get Quotes - When fitting a bathroom it’s worth meeting at least 3 tradesmen to get quotes for the job. For you to compare prices effectively, you need to ensure that the quotes have accounted for everything. This includes materials, labour and any extra costs such as removing and disposing of your old bathroom furniture. Getting a broken down, itemised quote from each fitter to compare quotes directly. Getting the tradesmen to pop over and see the project in person themselves will help them to make the quote as accurate as possible. Depending on whether you’re on a budget, sometimes it’s not always best to go with the cheapest option. Your bathroom should be built to last as it will go through a lot of wear and tear, therefore you need to find a bathroom fitter who has the attention for detail.  

Research - When looking for a bathroom fitter, it’s worth doing your research by looking through directories or ask a local friend if they could recommend a trusted person or even a family friend. There are now tradesmen finder sites such as Trust a Trader, Check a Trade, My Builder and Rated People. These allow customers to review tradesmen. When meeting tradesmen, don’t be shy to ask about previous work and ask for any photos. Doing this will help to form an idea to which bathroom fitter you’d like to complete the job. 

The familiarity of the Job -  Every bathroom transformation is different. Some require a simple replacement of units, whereas other jobs may be complete reshapes. When choosing a bathroom fitter, you need to ensure that he/she is up to the task. If the job involves lots of electrical work, you will need to ensure that they are fully qualified and who can self-certify their work. They may also have to work alongside other tradesmen that are carrying out different tasks.  

Bathroom Consultations - Asking your potential bathroom fitters to pop over will help to give a better image of what the fitter is like. You need to be comfortable and happy with them. It also helps them to understand the big picture by seeing the bathroom in person.
