We are having 2 local remodelers come to quote on a remodel for our
bath. Can you please advise what questions to ask them?
We are remodeling the whole thing, oh, should we have the floor done
first by a flooring person? it will be linoleum.
bathtub/shower 1 unit
would like 2 sink vanity - but 1 now
THANKS IN ADVANCE!
Yes, the floor gets done first. After the entire room gets gutted.
Or, maybe after the tub/shower goes in. Is there room to
maneuver a 1-pc tub/shower in?
Important step: Figure out how you will get along without
that bathroom for 2/3 months. Can't stand to do that?
Then write penalty clauses into the contract.
it is always best to have the floor done first..too many people try to do the
floor last either to "save money" by not tiling/etc under vanities or to help
prevent damage to new floor...this is all fine and dandy for short term, but in
the future any change in configuration will *require* the floor be replaced
also...if a floor goes down "last" and you develop a toilet leak you usually do
not know it untill the toilet is about to fall through the floor....
