How to find contract to remodel bathroom?
We live in Silicon Valley, south San Francisco bay area,
We want to find experience contractor with good references and record.
We need to re-model our main bathroom and convert tub to shower.
But there is a window around 5 feet up the wall.
Any suggestions shall be much appreciated.
Are you asking about how to find a contractor as in a remodeler, or a
contract as in a paper legal document?
Contractors have their own contracts or use standard contracts. It
really doesn't matter where the contract originates as long as your
lawyer reviews it and makes any necessary modifications.
Nice area if you like Silicon.
Here's a place to start:
I can vouch for Harrell in Mountain View.
Usually not a big problem. The window may need to be replaced, and
the window may need to have tempered or safety glass depending on
exactly how high the window is above the floor of the tub. Your local
code and building inspector will determine if it's required.
Thanks. Yes, we are looking for contractors to remodel our bathroom.
Hopefully we can convert the tub to shower.
Can you tell me typically how much it will cost in Silicon Valley areas?
Have anyone have good experiences with the list of names for home repair in
You pretty much always can. You can really do just about anything in
residential remodeling until you run short of $. If you're looking
for the quickest and cheapest way to convert a tub to a shower, this
type of thing is probably it: http://www.signaturehardware.com/class99
Typically? No. Your desires and tastes, and your house's conditions
have at least as much of an effect on the price as the swing between
contractors' prices. Start asking around with neighbors who have had
success with remodeling their bathroom and get some recommendations.
As it seems you are totally new to this, it might not be a bad idea to
hire someone to manage the project for you.
Home Depot is essentially a reseller of remodeling services, and, as
in everything they sell, it's all about volume and buying low. The
better contractors simply do not work for Home Depot. There are many
many horror stories about Home Depot getting dabbling in remodeling.
Do a Google search and you'll see what I mean.
None of the above. Ask everyone you know at work and in your neighborhood if
they've worked with any contractors and been happy with their work. That's
always the first way to find someone to work on anything in your home.
