WARNING! – Protect Yourself From These Costly Consequences If You Get Your Bathroom Renovation Project Wrong
THE 7 BIG COSTLY MISTAKES BATHROOM RENOVATORS OFTEN MAKE… AND HOW YOU CAN EASILY AVOID THEM
From the outset, let’s be honest here….renovating your bathroom or bathrooms is a substantial investment in your property.
You’ll notice I said ‘investment’. The key with renovating… like any investment, is to make sure you make informed and responsible decisions, to ensure you don’t end up throwing money away on a renovation that doesn’t deliver a reasonable return.
And I’m talking about both financial and emotional returns. You want to add value to your home and love the look and feel you experience.
A professionally designed and fitted out bathroom renovation can potentially increase the value of your property by far more than the investment of the renovation alone.
However by getting it wrong, and making some or any of the mistakes detailed below, can potentially end up costing you much more than the money you spent on what you thought would be a wise investment.
It’s the disappointment, anger or frustration you’d feel having to look at ‘that’ mistake each and every day!
Sure, you can’t be expected to know everything there is to know and consider when planning your bathroom renovation. It’s not something you deal with every day.
There are however, traps and pitfalls you really MUST be aware of. Some you may have already considered, others you hadn’t even thought of.
That’s why, in the interests of expanding your knowledge and informing you upfront before you start, the great team here at Choice Bathrooms has compiled the following information especially for you… Here it is… ‘The 7 Big Costly Mistakes Bathroom Renovators Often Make… And How You Can Easily Avoid Them‘.
BIG COSTLY MISTAKE #1 – Holding Out and Waiting Too Long to Renovate
This is a bathroom renovation mistake we often come across.
Because a bathroom renovation can rightfully be viewed as an expensive investment, it is quite often put off where problems are patched up or sealed over with the view of prolonging the inevitable.
Look, it’s quite understandable you may not value the benefit of renovating your bathroom before the paint starts peeling, the shower starts leaking into your walls or the tiles start falling off.
But often by the time many symptoms of bathroom failure become apparent, costly damage beyond the surface you can’t see has already taken hold.
Water damage inside your walls can spread like cancer…long before the visible signs become the trigger that prompts you to action.
It’s not only the localized damage to the walls, framework and flooring in your bathroom.
It’s the dinner bell sounding for termites that just thrive in a moist environment and spread quickly causing monstrous damage.
And mould, a major cause of debilitating allergies and illness including asthma, eye, skin and lung infections.
Hopefully, this never happens to you.
Protect the value of your property, and even if you have not decided to renovate yet, if your current bathroom is over 10 years old get it checked out by a professional.
The cost of delaying could be far in excess of a hassle free renovation before problems arise.
‘Choice Bathrooms’ are experts… we’ve seen and worked with many customers who have waited too long for their bathroom renovations. We’ve rebuilt entire walls and floors inflicted with insidious termite and water rot damage.
So, if you’ve been putting off your bathroom renovation, I urge you to consider the costly consequences. It may just save you thousands of dollars and unwanted stress.
BIG COSTLY MISTAKE #3 – DIY or Choosing a Backyard Business instead of a Professional Bathroom Renovation Specialist with Fully Licensed Tradespeople
Over the years, many TV lifestyle programs have been encouraging people to have a go at DIY. Of course, all these shows are sponsored by the hardware giants and suppliers benefiting from the DIY’er and backyard businesses.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with getting your hands dirty and having a go yourself at many jobs not requiring specialized knowledge and licensing.
But let me tell you…
Bathroom renovating is not something to be attempted by anybody but a specialist. A bathroom is the most complex renovation task to be undertaken on your property.
Renovating your bathroom requires skillful co-ordination of 12 or more separate qualified trades… each playing an important and perfectly timed role… ensuring your renovation meets all required standards and will perform it’s function for many years to come.
12 separate trades, each with individual roles.
- Licensed builder
- Asbestos Specialist
- And at times others not listed
Due to the complex nature of bathrooms, many contractors come and go. Often leaving behind a trail of substandard renovations ‘Choice Bathrooms’ get called out to, only to deliver the bad news, sometimes costing property owners thousands of dollars to rebuild from.
BIG COSTLY MISTAKE #5 – Choosing Poor Quality Fixtures, Fittings and Tiles
With so much choice out there in the market these days, it’s important to choose correctly.
It’s confusing to navigate the styles, the options and of course the prices. You don’t want to waste money on excessively priced fixtures or fittings. But you want something that will last, and come with a good warranty in case it fails.
In reality, you don’t have to pay too much for products that come with extensive and longer warranties. From our experience, the ones with the better warranties stand true to their claims and by far have lesser problems.
Particularly with plumbed in fixtures like taps, showerheads, flick mixers… these items are worth ensuring you source the best quality and longest warranties.
When it comes to choosing your tiles, there are a few tricks here to be aware of.
Because a bathroom is a wet area, you must ensure any tile you choose is first quality and non porous or they just won’t last.
Make sure all tiles are consistent in shape and sizes. After all, the last thing you want is uneven grout lines in your new bathroom caused by inconsistent tiles of random sizing.
‘Choice Bathrooms’ have negotiated with a number of reputable manufacturers to provide a large selection of superior quality fixtures, fittings and tiles designed to not only look great, but be reliable and backed by the best warranties available.
When you choose ‘Choice Bathrooms’ for your bathroom renovation, you also benefit from the generous discounts we have negotiated on your behalf to save you money.
