Things To Consider Asking Your Bathroom Installer

Things To Consider Asking Your Bathroom Installer

Starting any renovation or building project takes a lot of decision making and can be a major time commitment, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a stressful process.

By asking the right questions and using an experienced bathroom installer, you can ensure your project is completed on time, within the agreed budget and with minimal disruption.

In this blog, we have pulled together some questions you should consider when approaching an installer to get a project started.


How Much Time Will It Take to Complete?

Each bathroom will be specific to each client as it depends on the size, number of bathrooms and the amount of work that will be required.  We can provide a general timeline for each stage of work.

  • Stage 1 – After your initial enquiry we will be in touch within 24 hours to arrange a consultation and site visit for further details.
  • Stage 2 – Once the site visit is complete a detailed quote will be next out in the following 2-3 days for approval.
  • Stage 3 – If the quote is approved we will schedule our team to begin work in the next 8 weeks.
  • Stage 4 – Completing the work can take anywhere from a couple of days to a few weeks. This all depends on the level of work which needs carrying out.

Can You Supply Other Trades Other Than Installers?

Yes as part of our team we have a range of employees including electricians, plumbers, tilers and gas engineers as just a few examples.

When we discuss your project in depth, you can highlight any work that needs doing relating to your bathroom install. Then when we create the quote we will make sure everything is covered.

Having a range of skills on the team means we can coordinate all stages of the work, and our project manager takes the responsibility of keeping things on track saving you the worry of dealing with lots of different people.


Will I Be Able To Use The Toilet During The Installation?

We will make sure that there is a toilet plumbed in overnight for you to use, especially if it is the only toilet you have access to in the house. However, there will be times during the day while we are carrying out work where it may not be possible for the toilet to be connected. We will always pre warn you if this is going to occur.

Although your bathroom will have the basic functions, for periods of time it might not be the most accessible. You may still want to plan ahead to have an alternate option with a family member or friend.


What Will Happen To my Old Bathroom Suite?

Unless you are in a brand new build starting from scratch, there will be some kind of existing bathroom that needs taking out. As part of our service we will take out and dispose of any items we remove, this may be tiles, pipes or the old fittings.

While carrying out the work, be prepared for dust. We will use dust sheets and make sure we are not tracking it throughout the house, but removing tiles especially tends to generate a large amount of dust. If you’re worried about the dust levels around the house, talk to your installer and see if there are any other safeguards that can be put in place.
