Remodeling a bathroom can be a large project, and few homeowners are qualified to tackle a remodel alone. A bathroom remodel often requires the assistance of a professional plumber, contractor, and designer. Whether you are preparing your house to sell or would like to make your bathroom more suitable to your lifestyle, updating this room will add value to your home.
A little research is needed to find t he best professionals for your project. Two organizations with helpful Web sites are the National Association of Home Builders (www.nahb.org) and the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (www.nari.org). Both sites feature a search option to help you find professionals in your local area. Word of mouth is another great way to find a reliable professional, and most people are more than willing to pass on the name of a great contractor or designer as well as boast about their fabulous remodel.
When you think that you have found the right professional assistance for your project, remember to check references and certifications. Make sure that any contractor, designer, or plumber you use has the correct license needed to work in your city and state; this will ensure that your working relationship will be a smooth and happy undertaking.
