When it comes to a bathroom remodeling project, going for the company with the lowest bid is extremely tempting. A large construction project can get quite expensive, and there are some disreputable bathroom remodeling companies that will make unrealistically low bids to attract customers and then will come up with many reasons later on to jack up the price.
Here are three reasons why we should avoid a too-low bid on a bathroom remodel.
1. If a Bid Is Too Good To Be True, It Probably Is
Ah, that popular adage. Here’s another: you get what you pay for – because it’s true. Even if your bathroom remodeler does not increase the price midway through the project, the reason the bid is so low might be because of shoddy workmanship or inferior products. To be sure you are not being shorted, and no corners are being cut, always work with experienced bathroom renovation contractors with a reputation for honesty and high-quality work.
2. Lack of Experience
Another reason for an unusually low bid is because fledgling contractors might be looking to gain experience by lowering their price to get jobs. While a company that is just starting out does not necessarily mean that the pro does poor work, it is always better to hire one with more experience, especially for large-scale projects.
3. Incomplete Warranties
Contractors who are able to offer low bids probably do not offer after-sales benefits like warranties. While post-sale warranties are not absolutely necessary and may seem like an unnecessary expense to some homeowners, most bathroom conversion contractors recommend that you protect your investment with a solid warranty in case problems arise in the future.
