Choosing bathroom remodeling in Richmond

Richmond Skyline

Richmond residents who want to remodel their bathrooms should look for contractors who have positive consumer ratings, written estimates and a history of finishing jobs on schedule.

Before picking a bathroom remodeling company, consider a few other important details:

  • Your remodel goals. There are a variety of project types, including minor, major and ground-up remodels. A minor bathroom renovation may include cosmetic upgrades, like a fresh coat of paint and new lighting, while a major bathroom remodel includes cosmetic changes and all new fixtures. A ground-up bathroom renovation could include all of the above plus changing the bathroom’s size or layout. Whatever your goal, make sure your contractor has experience doing that kind of work.
  • Communication with your contractor. Keeping lines of communication open and clear helps you get the bathroom you want with as few surprises as possible. Be sure to outline all the project details in writing and sign an actual contract. Be direct with your expectations, and ask your contractor about its preferred contact method and policy on providing progress reports.
  • Insurance. Your contractor should have general liability insurance and workers' compensation insurance for any employees on-site. These policies protect both you and the contractor in case of accidents or problems.

Avoid contractors that won’t provide estimates in writing or who can’t share a portfolio of their work. Additionally, never pay in full for a bathroom remodel until the work is complete. A deposit may be necessary to get started, but avoid paying for the entire project upfront to protect yourself from scams.
