Whether you are only changing out a few features or remodeling your entire bathroom, doing so is one of the best ways to update a home and bring extra value to any home investment. Bathroom remodels can sometimes be tricky, so knowing what you want to come from the remodel before you begin is very important. This doesn’t mean choosing colors, countertops and accessories, however. Before you begin, it’s important you look at the bigger picture. Below are three important considerations we think every homeowner should make before beginning a bathroom remodel.
Before You Begin
Identify What Needs to Change – Before you begin your project, note things about your bathroom that you find bothersome or problematic. Do you always seem to run out of hot water? Do your towels never dry? Thinking beyond the look of the bathroom will help you cover all your bases. For instance, you may want to consider a tankless water heater to generate an instant, and endless supply, hot water or improve ventilation in the room to reduce moisture in the air.
Look a Your Budget – List the wishes you have for your new bathroom including types of fixtures, and other features and the priority of each. Then look at the changes you want to make to the bathroom. Are you adding an additional sink? Are you moving the toilet? Even the seemingly smallest changes can add up to some of the biggest costs in the end. Make sure before you begin, you know how much you are willing to spend and how much the total remodel will cost. If you go with a contractor for your remodel, choose a contractor that will offer you firm, up-front pricing so you avoid any unnecessary surprises.
Hiring Help – Tackling a bathroom remodel on your own can be difficult and complicated – especially if there are surprises, or you’ve never done a remodel before. When it comes to bathroom remodeling, hiring a contractor to help is often a good move – even if it’s only for part of the job. But, with so many contractors out there, how do you know you’re choosing a company that will be reliable and provide the quality work you’re looking for? Select a contractor who is licensed and insured and offers warranties on their work so you’re sure you’re getting quality work you can have confidence in. It’s also a good idea to check references. Don’t just take their word for it, find out with other customers are saying by reading reviews in trusted online review communities such as Angie’s list.

Francis from Nicholson Plumbing and Heating was excellent. He was here to evaluate HVAC in our home. He was very patient and answered all my questions. He is also polite and easy to communicate with him. He explained technical concepts to me in layperson terms!

Nicholson offered what is possibly the best customer service I have dealt with in a home repair situation. I called them because I was looking to replace my very old furnace. They came out to do an initial estimate, and then came back when I had some further questions about my options. After installing the furnace, they ran into some problems with my air ducts. This happened on a Friday, and the problem was fixed by Monday afternoon. In addition to their excellent service, they did quality work at a fair price. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an HVAC company in the Framingham area!

Recently used these guys because my HVAC unit AC wasn’t working (first hot day of summer). Showed up on time, wore booties, fixed the unit. During the visit we talked about how my unit was having problems in the winter – which was resulting in NSTAR service calls of maybe 3-4 times per season (I am on a service plan with them). He was the first guy to tell me WHY the problem was happening, and HOW to fix it. I find it strange that all of the NSTAR guys etc. no one took time to point out how to fix the source of the problem…Very professional, smart. I would use them again, and plan to for the fix on my heating unit!
