How to Choose the Perfect Bathroom Fitter?

How to Choose the Perfect Bathroom Fitter?

When it’s time to get going on your bathroom, you may be excited to jump right in, but we recommend taking some time to find the perfect bathroom fitter to help you get the job done right. 

Meeting professional fitters is exciting, you get to learn about all of the different ideas and viewpoints based around your project.  Making sure you choose the right one is vital as it could make or break your outcome. 

We’ve put together a list of simple steps that will help you get your project heading towards success in no time. 

Step 1: Get Quotes

Meeting with different tradespeople is important. You get to understand the project a little bit better and find someone you can connect with. You also get to find out how much they want to charge you for the project at hand which is very helpful. 

We always recommend that quotes are made in person, which involves the tradesperson coming to your home or a quick and easy video chat where we can browse without coming too close. Quotes should cover everything from the materials needed, labour and time along with any extra costs such as removing and disposing of your old bathroom furniture. 

Quotes should be broken down well and feel completely transparent. If someone is just giving a ballpark figure to work with at the time of a quote, then be wary they may add costs further down the line. It’s always a good idea to be on the same page.

Step 2: Reviews and Research

Friends, family and Google are great places to start looking for the perfect bathroom fitter.

Seeing reviews, both positive and negative, can help you form a good opinion on the people or company you are choosing to take over your job. We recommend asking for photos or browsing their Instagram and Facebook pages. It is always best when you can see what great jobs someone has completed in the past.

It’s also good to note that if a tradesman is dominated by good reviews but also has a few bad ones, this doesn’t necessarily mean they’re bad. They could have been a problem with a supplier or something else – so take that with a pinch of salt.

Step 3: See if They’re Up For The Task 

It’s important to understand that every bathroom remodel or update is going to be a set of different tasks.

When choosing a bathroom fitter, you need to ensure that he/she is up to the task. Do you completely understand what you’re asking? And does the tradesman understand that too? 

Setting clear expectations about the job is the key to success.
