5 Reasons to Hire a Professional for Your Kitchen & Bathroom Remodel
Sure, you could DIY your home remodel, but do you really want to?? If you are super handy, maybe the answer is yes. But for the average person, hiring a professional for your remodeling needs is going to be the best option. It will save you time, money, and a whole lot of headaches.
#1: Save Time and Money on Your Remodel
A professional can help you design a kitchen or bathroom that suits both your needs and your budget. Even better, working with a professional contractor will keep you on a timeline that ensures your project gets finished as soon as possible.
Most homeowners have two goals for their remodel: meet their home needs, and save as much money as possible. This is where working with a professional has great benefits. Contractors often get better pricing on materials by building long-term relationships with vendors. This means they may have access to special pricing that regular consumers can’t get.
Since professionals do remodel jobs often, they have likely already invested in specialized tools such as power tools or other expensive equipment that the regular homeowner wouldn’t already have laying around in the garage. Especially for kitchen and bath remodels, you may need specialized tools for plumbing that you wouldn’t ever use again, making your remodel job unnecessarily expensive if you choose to do it yourself.
Additionally, renovations take time, and they often take more time than you may initially think. If you choose to DIY your project, you’ll need to find time to fit the work into your already busy schedule. This means lots of late nights and weekends full of working on your house rather than spending time with your family, doing things you love. And if you have little ones in the house, they may not appreciate hammering and drilling well after bedtime!
#2: Get The Job Done Right the First Time
To ensure your home is structurally sound and compliant with all the necessary building codes, you should work with someone who knows what they’re doing. If your remodeling job includes new electrical and plumbing systems, you’re better off having them installed by professionals.
There’s no need to put your home at risk of an electrical fire or burst pipes just to save a few bucks. In the long run, it will end up costing you a lot more money if the job isn’t done right.
A bathroom remodel requires specific knowledge of plumbing, which is outside the realm of most homeowners’ experience levels. This is even more true when it comes to gas lines or electrical wiring that comes with doing a complete kitchen remodel.
#3. Deal With One Person
Remember that bit about saving time? If you choose to DIY your remodeling project, you’ll need to find time to connect with all the other people who are involved with the project:
- Interior designers to help you structure the layout of your kitchen or bathroom
- Retail shop employees to help you estimate the cost and quantity of flooring, tiles, appliances, tools, etc.
- Sub-contractors for the parts of the project you can’t do yourself
- City permit offices for building permits
And not to mention the dozens of trips back and forth to the hardware store when you inevitably forget something or grab the wrong tool.
When you work with a professional contractor, you don’t have to worry about connecting all the dots and taking time out of your busy day to visit hardware stores, material stores, city permit offices, etc.
#4. Get Protection With a Warranty
A professional remodeler usually offers warranties for their work, so if something goes wrong, you have the protection you need to get it fixed. Professional contractors stand behind their work and guarantee the work gets done right.
#5. Increase Your Home Value With a Kitchen or Bath Remodel
Many homeowners choose to invest in remodeling their kitchens and bathrooms as they prepare to sell their homes, with the goal of increasing the home value. It is true that you may get more money from the sale of your home if you upgrade these two very important parts of your house, but there are some things to consider when it comes to how you spend your money and the return on investment you’ll get from your remodeling project.
A professional can tell you which parts of a remodel are worth investing more money into in order to increase the value of your home. For example, you may like the fancy, expensive kitchen backsplash tiles. Even if you’re tempted to purchase them, they may not do anything to increase the value of your home, especially if they’re trendy and likely to go out of style in a few years.
On the other hand, investing in high-quality appliances and durable flooring are two things that will be attractive to prospective buyers when you are ready to sell. Before you start spending money on flashy, shiny things, talk with your professional contractor about where your money will be best spent.
