When remodeling your bathroom, there are a few things you should avoid to ensure the project goes smoothly.

Here are 8 mistakes homeowners make when remodeling their bathroom:

  1. Not planning ahead – It’s important to plan out your bathroom remodel before starting anything. This will help avoid any surprises or setbacks during the project.
  2. Not budgeting enough – Bathroom remodels can be expensive, so it’s important to budget accordingly. Trying to cut corners can end up costing you more in the long run.
  3. Not hiring a professional – A professional can help ensure the job is done properly and safely. Attempting a bathroom remodel on your own can be risky and may not turn out the way you wanted it to.
  4. Choosing the wrong contractor – Not all contractors are created equal. Make sure you do your research and choose a contractor you can trust.
  5. Not considering all aspects of the remodel – Make sure you take into account all aspects of the remodel, from the cost to the timeline. Trying to do too much at once can lead to delays and frustration.
  6. Ignoring zoning laws – Make sure you are aware of any zoning laws that may affect your bathroom remodel. Failing to do so could result in fines or even having to tear down your new bathroom.
  7. Not waterproofing properly – If your bathroom isn’t properly waterproofed, you could end up with water damage and expensive repairs later on.
  8. Not using quality materials – Using quality materials is essential for a successful bathroom remodel. Cheaper materials may seem like a good deal upfront, but they often don’t hold up over time.

"This company is incredible! Had a 6 week timeline- and there wasn’t a day that a full crew wasn’t there working. And it was a big job- all new tile flooring throughout- new large island granite/tile replaced along with appliances and extended my existing cabinets (stain matched perfectly)- new baseboards and painted whole inside of house. Everyone on site was polite and kept mess to a minimum"
