Taking on a home improvment project may seem like the best way to get your hands dirty while also creating something beautiful. With so many TV shows available that make incredible DIY transformations look easy, we understand why some people are ready to jump in their cars, head to their nearest hardware store, and get started.
However, while painting your home or even overhauling your garden may be a fun DIY weekend project, some jobs are best left to the professionals. This includes any project that involves plumbing or electricity, such as the bathroom. Sultacon Construction has put together a list of the top three reasons your bathroom renovation is best left in the hands of a professional construction company.
There are many places to find inspiration for your bathroom upgrades. Modern aesthetics, mosaic tiles, and luxury marble countertops and flooring are all extremely alluring, but also very expensive. The appeal of DIY projects for most people is that they can save money. However, when you factor in the cost materials, the tools needed, and your time, it quickly becomes clear that your DIY project won’t end up saving you money after all.
Professionals will be able to achieve the look you want but for less. While many professionals may offer a separate rate for cost and materials, they will come equipped with all the tools they need to get the job done. In addition to completing the project correctly the first time, professionals have access to wholesale priced materials, which saves you money. Plus, if you plan on spending money on expensive additions, labour cost is the last thing you should skimp on.
The bathroom is one of the most used areas in any home. You must have access to a working sink, shower, and toilet to go about your day. If you have ever had to deal with a broken shower or clogged toilet, just imagine what it would be like if your entire bathroom was out of service.
Working with a professional will ensure that your plumbing is properly laid, and your electricity is correctly wired. Depending on the age of your home, this can be a straightforward project, or it can require complex upgrades on the fly. A professional can make these changes right away without disabling your entire bathroom for a prolonged period. You will also avoid damage to your home from pipe accidents that lead to water leakage or worse.
Heritage and historical homes feature vintage architecture and unique plumbing. While this is a positive thing for aesthetics and property value, it can lead to complications during a renovation project. The professionals will have the skills, tools, and experience to get the job done right without damaging the unique properties of your home. Working with a professional will allow you to get the vintage-chic upgrades you want while preventing damage to older plumbing and electrical systems. They can help you match your upgrades to the vintage charm that is present in the rest of the home as well as install flooring that preserves the overall aesthetics.
