Why can’t you just get a rough quote over the phone?
When you have decided you need a new bathroom, the cost is always the first thing you want to know. You want a rough idea of what the cost will be. Most bathroom installation companies will only be able to give you a cost once they have surveyed your home. You might find this frustrating and wonder why. Why can’t you just get a rough quote over the phone? The reason being is that the cost of baths and showers vary and without know exactly what you want it is impossible to quote. Every job is unique and depending on what you are having done will depend on the price. Replacing old for new is relatively much cheaper than if you want the bathroom remodelled. If you want the bath in a new position the cost will raise due to the extra plumbing costs. Generally on average a bathroom costs about £3,000, maybe a bit less. But it can escalate depending on the luxury of the shower and accessories and any water pressure issue you might have. Companies will not want to give you a price because until they have carried out a survey only then will know the costs.
Surveys are a necessity
When you have a bathroom company or any home improvement company giving you a quote, you must get everything written down and agreed. Both for your own peace of mind and the companies. The last thing the company wants is half way through the job you ask for alterations. You need to be clear what you want and where you want it before you sign any contract. This is why a survey is important. Even if you know what you want, it is only after a survey of your home will you be able to get the real cost. Also with bathrooms for the elderly or disabled there are many things that need to be taken into consideration which you might not have thought of. We as a company want to ensure we give you a bathroom that you can use now and for the future. Being experts in this field we know all the right questions to ask to ensure you get a bathroom that will really transform you life.
Time is money
Another issue regarding the cost of a new bathroom is the size and shape of your bathroom and how difficult the job might be. If you having a en-suite then the room needs to be checked to be sure the job is possible. All jobs are possible but depending on where the plumbing is will depend on how much of an upheaval the job will be. Wet rooms and reconfigured bathrooms take a little longer so remember that the installer will be paid on how long it takes. So only if it’s a simple job, the cost can be kept low.
Remember each company has to pay its staff as well. So the bathroom installation cost will be made up of the actual products, labour for the installer, the sales man and the administration staff back in the company’s’ office. There is also the waste. That has to be paid to be taken away. If you have the time it is better to get a few quotes from a few companies. You will then see which company is adding the most profiles or who has the most expensive installers. Some people think if they pay more they will get a better job. We don’t believe that is the case necessarily. We would like a profit of course, but we would much rather do a great job at a great price so that you rant and rave and recommend us to others.
