Bathroom installation, hire the professionals

September 23, 2019

There’s something about the autumn season and heading into winter that focuses our attention on our bathrooms. It must be our desire to feel cosy and warm and what better way than to unwind and relax than in a brand new bathroom.

We spoke with Paul Urry from Brilliant Bathrooms about why you should hire a bathroom specialist and the difference between a DIY job and a professional job.

How to find a bathroom specialist

Finding a trusted bathroom specialist can seem like a difficult task. But here at Checkatrade, we like to help take the pain away by providing you with tradespeople’s before and after images as well as being able to see and read their customer feedback. Start your search on the Checkatrade website and spend time reading the company profiles to find the right match for you.

Why you need a specialist and what makes them different

While a bathroom can be one of the smallest rooms in your house, it is also one of the most important, and like a kitchen, it can have the most complications.

There are several approaches you could take: measure and buy the bathroom suite and fixings yourself and then get a professional to carry out the installation, or call in a bathroom specialist who will take you from initial enquiry, guide you through the various options and provide you with several design ideas and layouts. And then once agreed, they carry out all the installation works to completion – leaving you to relax, unwind and enjoy your bathroom.

Whichever you choose it is always advisable to call in a professional – especially where water and gas are involved.

Hiring a bathroom specialist

A good bathroom fitter will invariably have a waiting list and will always be keen for you to see and review their previous work through images as well as client feedback reviews.

That is why it is so important to explore the reviews a professional has – these act as your references.

Paul says

“Look at photos and reviews, as customer feedback and reputation of the company is very important to us.”

We would recommend that you get at least three quotes to make comparisons and help you with evaluating who is right for you.

Bathrooms can be costly – see our bathroom cost guide here for further information and some top tips.
