If a bathroom renovation project is in your future, read on to discover how a design-build firm can assist you in creating the bath of your dreams.
A Design-Build Firm Unifies and Streamlines the Remodeling Process
From start to finish, a reputable design-build firm will handle all the details. They are your single point of contact throughout the entire project. This talented team consists of a project manager, designer, architect, and highly skilled contractors. Using a design-build firm, versus the DIY route, offers a seamless, unified approach that produces high quality results you’ll enjoy now and in the future.
Bathroom Remodels Can be Complicated
Any remodel project can encounter an unexpected issue or two, and a bathroom remodel is no exception. In addition to seeing more wear and tear on standard bathroom elements, this room experiences a higher concentration of moisture, which can take its toll on fixtures, paint, and flooring.
A qualified design-build firm will address and remedy bathroom-specific issues such as:
- Plumbing issues – Their qualified plumbers rectify any existing insufficiencies, including old pipes and fittings, upgrading as necessary to bring up to code and/or facilitating additional improvements according to the remodel plan.
- Leak prevention – A customized bathroom renovation includes using state of the art materials suited to the latest shower, tub, and sink systems. If existing plumbing is inferior, installed incorrectly, or unsuitable in any other way, it will be repaired, or replaced and installed properly to prevent leaks and any other water related issues.
- Electrical issues – The design-build team’s licensed electricians will assess the existing electrical system, making necessary upgrades and/or adjustments for the new bathroom lighting and other amenities.
- Dry rot issues – Dry rot is caused by unwanted moisture that’s accumulated from leaks and excessive or unventilated steam in the bathroom. This moisture creates fungal buildup and decay that weakens and crumbles wood in structural elements such as framing, trim, and flooring. It compromises the structural integrity of the home, creating potentially hazardous conditions. In addition to repairing areas affected by dry rot, the source of the moisture must be found and properly addressed before the remodel is completed.
- Uneven floors – This issue is especially common in older homes, or in those with structural or other damage, or where the flooring has been improperly installed. If not sufficiently addressed, it will be difficult or impossible to install new flooring. Any existing issues must be remedied to ensure longevity for the new floor and safe conditions for the household.
- Shower door issues – A properly fitted shower door is essential to prevent water from accumulating on the floor and surrounding areas. Continuous standing water can lead to various types of damage and costly repairs. The design-build team includes shower door professionals skilled in proper fit and installation.
- Layout changes – Changing a bathroom’s layout or location can be a complex process. Moving a tub across the room, for example, may not be possible due to the location of the plumbing vent stack and water supply lines. Layout changes can be even more difficult in a multi-level home where existing plumbing is not convenient for potential changes. Other layout considerations include existing walls, framing, and wiring. Renovation plans rely on these essential elements, and deviations from these items, when feasible, may be costly.
You Want Design Expertise
Even the most design savvy homeowner needs a little help occasionally. The bathroom, while among the smaller rooms in your home, still has numerous choices and details to consider and coordinate. So, assistance from a knowledgeable designer is beneficial. Their expertise guides you seamlessly through the process, from planning and material selection to the gorgeous finishing touches.
The designer, following your customized remodel plan, helps you select everything from paint, wallcoverings, lighting/plumbing fixtures, and hardware, to shower/tub/sinks, countertops, tile, flooring, and accessories. Designers share their unique insight into material selections, brands, warranties and so on, helping you avoid errors, returns, and regrets along the way. They also provide innovative suggestions to maximize space and storage, expanding the benefits of your newly remodeled space.
Well versed in the latest design trends and products, a designer works to minimize any hiccups while ensuring that the finished product suits your needs, tastes, and budget. Their goal is to create a beautiful, customized bathroom that you’ll use and enjoy for years to come.
A Design-Build Firm is an Expert in Timing and Scheduling
One of the most important elements for a timely and successful bathroom remodel is scheduling. There is a standard order to the process, from planning and material selection to demo, construction, and completion. The design-build firm schedules each segment in sequential order to move the project forward as quickly and efficiently as possible. Their aim, in addition to your complete satisfaction, is to supply a reasonable timeline for the project, minimizing the inconvenience to your household.
A Design-Build Firm Ensures You Stay on Budget
Understandably, budget is one of the main concerns when renovating the bathroom. When a reputable design-build firm creates a plan, one of their objectives is to supply the homeowner with a realistic, personalized budget. Their team actively works to find cost effective options and solutions without compromising quality, safety, and aesthetics. Homeowners have advance knowledge of the budget and are kept aware of any unforeseen issues or changes throughout the process.
