Why Should I Hire a Professional to Install my New Bathroom?
July 31, 2020
Let’s face it, you’re probably not as good at DIY as you think you are, right? While we’re on the subject, is it fair to say your other half isn’t as good at Do-It-Yourself as they think either? Thought so. Even if you fancy yourself as a Do-It-Yourself guru and can throw paint around with the best of them, there are always going to be jobs around the house where it’s inevitably going to be better to hire a professional instead.
When it comes to things like electrical work or especially plumbing, however much you rate your skills, these aren’t areas in which you want anything but the best. And the best means hiring a professional plumber. From taps, showers or full bathroom installations, let’s take a look at why getting a professional in is always the way to go.
The Benefits of Hiring a Professional to Install Your New Bathroom
It’s one thing to like doing DIY, but quite another to be competent. When you hire a plumber who is trained, time-served and certified, then you can rest assured that they know what they’re doing. For someone who will be swapping taps, installing toilets or fixing washers every day, the time they’ll take is going to be a lot less than if you do it. In a world where ‘time is money’, less time for them is less money for you. If there are any unforeseen problems, they’ll also be able to resolve them quickly and easily.
The benefits of hiring a professional starts before work even begins. Professional plumbers will provide an accurate, detailed quote for the work that’s needed. This helps you to budget accordingly. If there are any unforeseen problems, the cost often stays the same to you; protecting you from those unexpected bills.
If your job is on a larger scale, whether it’s a full bathroom installation or converting the en-suite into a wet room, their knowledge and experience will be a huge benefit to you. They’ll be able to see potential problems, understand any difficulties in your design and even suggest new ways of doing the job. This expertise will ultimately save both your time and your money.
It’s easy to forget when you’re doing DIY that, should anything go wrong, there isn’t anyone else to blame other than yourself. Blaming the dog just won’t cut it. It might even be that you end up calling in a professional to correct your …. errrr ….. unfortunate missteps.
A professional trades person will give you peace of mind that should something go wrong (horribly or otherwise) they will have a duty to put it right for you. Chances are the work they do will also be covered by a guarantee or warranty for a period of time. Even if the problems don’t arise straight away, you can be assured that they’ll only be a phone call away and will rectify the problem as soon as possible.
No home can be without a functioning bathroom for very long. Nature requires the human body to perform certain ‘rituals’, so even the most basic home needs one for health and hygiene reasons. If you can have a bathroom that looks amazing, works perfectly and can even be a haven of relaxation when you need it to be, then why would you trust your plumbing to anyone other than a professional.
