A beautiful modern bathroom is not only pleasant on the eye – it’s going to add real value to your home too. Experts say that when it comes to selling property quickly, buyers put new bathrooms and kitchens at the top of their wish lists. The Mr-Skill website is a good place to find a bathroom fitter, because we screen all our members before we accept them.
Here then, are four easy steps to getting your bathroom upgraded:
Why not check with Mr-Skill before you accept a quotation – our members are offering incredible bargains right now, and you could save up to 25% on normal prices!
Firstly – Measure your existing bathroom and record the layout on a sketch. Of course, you don’t have to follow the existing set-up with your new bathroom. However it is important to understand the existing piping arrangements, as it can save pounds if you don’t need a major refit of the plumbing too.
Take your plan with you when you visit bathroom-fitting shops in your area. The purpose of this is to get ideas in terms of what would look nice for you, and how much it would cost. Good bathroom-fitting shops will be only too pleased to help with free designs. Remember to ask your supplier if their tradespersons are criminal records bureau checked, and that they are registered and qualified and gas safe accredited too.
Secondly – A home survey is next on the list, and it will enable your preferred supplier to fully discuss and understand your requirements. From the survey, you will receive a bathroom fitting quotation, which you need to review carefully before signing agreement. Remember to request any changes in writing. One of our regular London bathroom fitters advises you to ask about special offers before finally accepting.
Thirdly – Stripping out your old bathroom and installing your new one requires a little forward planning. How long will it take? Do you have a second bathroom to use during renovations? Who’s responsible for rubble removal, and for the final clean up too?
Finally – Assuming that everything goes to plan, you need to know about the guarantee for the workmanship and the bathroom fittings as well. Don’t be shy to ask, because the completed job needs to be just like your hard earned money – and that’s perfect!
