THINGS TO LOOK FOR WHEN SELECTING YOUR CONSTRUCTION COMPANY

Choosing a construction company to plan and build your bathroom is a big decision. The wrong choice could end up costing more money than you should have spent but the right company can make the whole process easier, faster, and more affordable.

Remember, the cheapest is not always the best.

To help you make the right decision, we’ve outlined eight things to look for.

1. EXPERIENCE

One of the best markers of future success is past success. If a construction company recently completed a project that has many similar elements to your own, there’s a good chance they can do it again.

So first, determine what specific elements your project will entail. Look at the scope, the space available, and the conditions under which the project will take place. What type of bathroom have you got in mind? How big is the project?

The past project does not need to be identical but – but knowing that your selected partner has successfully incorporated similar elements in past projects is important.

2. THE TEAM

While past experience is certainly important, the experience of the individuals who will be running your projects maybe even more so.

When choosing a construction company for your bathroom, you want to know who will be leading your project on a day-to-day basis. So, make sure to ask them to provide resumes for key people anticipated to lead your project that include their past projects.

3. TESTIMONIALS,

Another important step in evaluating your options is to see what past clients and other business partners are saying about them. Looks for mentions of the quality of their workmanship, their collaborative approach, and their willingness and ability to work through issues as they arise.

4. KEEPING TO THE BUDGET

Can they deliver the best project for the least amount of money? However, prioritising cost above everything can be a risky approach. Do always keep that in mind.

The other cost-related consideration is their ability and willingness to do value engineering. It doesn’t just mean making your project less expensive. Its goal is to increase the value of your project by taking away or replacing things that aren’t essential to the true goal of the job.

5. SUBCONTRACTORS

Quality subcontractors are an essential part of a successful construction job. You want to be sure you’re selecting a construction company that assembles the best team possible to get your job done.

They should also have a plan in place to prequalify new subcontractors should the need arise.

6. INSURANCE

You should be sure they have the proper amount of liability and property damage insurance, as well as worker’s compensation. Ask for insurance certificates in your request for qualifications or proposal.

7. SAFETY

If your construction team isn’t working safely, you can’t have a successful project.

So, ask for information on their company safety policy. This is often a sign that the company takes safe work practices seriously, and they’re taking steps to educate its employees and implement effective safety programs.

8. UNDERSTANDING & VALUING YOUR GOALS

The last, but probably most important thing you’ll want to look for in a construction team is that they’re committed to understanding and carrying out your vision from the project.

No matter what kind of bathroom you’re creating or renovating, it’s more than just a floor, walls, and a roof. You need a construction company that fully understands what your goals are for the project.

Good luck
