What are some common reasons why someone should renovate their bathroom?

If the bathroom is outdated, the fixtures are worn, or if they want a change of style, or want to improve the value of their home.

Do you have an average estimate for someone who is thinking about remodeling his or her bathroom?

There is a huge range, depending on the scope of the remodel, and the cost of the fixtures chosen.

What is the standard remodeling process, from start to finish?

The client researches ideas and comes to the contractor with a fairly good idea of what they would like, and how much they are prepared to spend. Then the contractor can help them with a plan, and submit an estimate, detailing the work they would do. The client chooses fixtures, tile, etc. with the help of the contractor if needed, and then the contractor is ready for demolition and renovation.

What are at least three things every homeowner should ask their contractor before remodeling their bathroom?

1. Are they licensed and insured?
2. Members of the Better Business Bureau?
3. Ask for references and pictures of previous renovations.

If you could offer advice to someone who is remodeling their bathroom for the first time, what would it be and why?

Spend a lot of time thinking about the type of fixtures you want and your budget, so that when you are meeting with contractors, you both will have a clear idea of what you want to accomplish, and if it is within your budget.

What is the best way for people to get in contact with you or your company?
