Bathroom renovations before and after
How do you choose a bathroom renovation specialist, what should you do before and after employing someone? These are a couple of great questions to consider. Bathroom renovations before and after The very first thing you need to do is decide on what you want, get a good plan in your head, or better yet on paper on what you want and need in your bathroom. This can take weeks or months and shouldn’t be hurried. You can get many ideas off the internet so spend time researching and figuring out exactly what you want your bathroom to be. Think of all the bathrooms you have used, especially if you have travelled, what did you like? What did you not like? What did you see that was practical and useful? What looked really good and what didn’t. Enjoy this time and don’t rush it. A great start is to keep major elements where they are. Once you have what you want, you need to look at who can provide it for you. Talk to people who have had their bathroom renovated or newly built and ask questions. Who did they use? Who do they recommend? What would they do differently next time etc. The last thing you want to do is end up on a programme like Cowboy Builders. Next research yourself, so you know what’s what and who’s who. Shop around and talk to people in the shops.

Unfortunately, out of sight is out of mind and you can’t just lift up the floor boards every six months to check all is ok. So when you are renovating it is important to get properly installed and detailed waterproofing for all bathrooms, kitchens and laundry’s. Special waterproofed Gib is required for the walls and a waterproof membrane is vital behind tiled surfaces with cement based grouts and in the shower areas to prevent damage from leaks. All plumbing and drainage work that involves installing new pipes requires a building consent. Some quick tips before committing to a quote: Make sure you get three quotes and make sure sure everyone is quoting apples for apples. Make sure your expectations are fully understood. Only use licensed trades people with insurance. Get at least three references before commitment. It must be carried out by a Licensed or Certifying Plumber or Drainlayer. This is important because and incorrect plumbing connection could allow a back-flow of polluted water into your drinking water. So it is vitally important to make sure all drains, plumbing and the like...
