If you are really lucky then you may even increase the value. This is of course going to be ideal if you are looking to sell in the near future. Of course, before even a single component has been put into place you need to know how it is going to get there. This is where a bathroom fitter comes in. As you may know, there are plenty of London bathroom fitters. How do you know if the one you select is going to be any good? Well, you read this article of course! Let’s take a little look shall we?
Why it is so important to hire experienced bathroom specialists
Before we dive into how to find the perfect London bathroom fitters it is probably worth thinking a little bit about why you need bathroom specialists. To put it bluntly; you want the job done properly.
There are so many people out there who think that they can tackle the bathroom installation on their own. Sadly they never manage it. They invariably make a mistake which results in the bathroom not looking quite as fantastic as it should. There are some people out there who do opt to get a bathroom fitter in. However, some of these people choose one who is not quite up to the job. This means that the bathroom stands a huge chance of being ruined.
If you do not take the time to find the best London bathroom fitters then you are most likely going to be paying out a lot of money to a new fitter to fix the problem.
So, how do you figure out whether there are any good London bathroom fitters?
Well, you are going to need to do a LOT of research. Honestly, you are going to need to gather a list of at least thirty different companies and check their credentials. There is no real formal qualification involved when it comes to bathroom installation HOWEVER a company that is up to the job will have gone out of their way to achieve the voluntary qualifications (there is an NVQ Level 2 available in this trade). If the company does not have qualifications then you can look into the amount of experience that they hold. The companies that have been working in the industry for many years will not have any qualifications. They will have a wealth of experience though. Remember, this is a rather complex job. Those companies that are not up to it will not last in the industry for any length of time. In fact, I doubt a sub-par company will last more than a couple of weeks.
Top three research methods to remember
Of course, if you are going to start to make up a list of London bathroom fitters then you are going to need to know where to find their names. Now, there are plenty of different locations that you can search when trying to find a bathroom fitter. These are the locations I have had the most success with though:
- Recommendations: If you know somebody that has had a bathroom installation carried out recently then ask them about their experience. The benefit of this is that you are going to get a first-hand view about whether a particular company is any good. If you are lucky you will also be able to inspect the work that they have completed!
- Your Favourite Search Engine: This is a brilliant method for searching for a London bathroom fitter. A quick search using the right keywords should throw up a whole host of companies that you can research in a bit more depth!
- Trade Websites: There are plenty of websites out there nowadays which enable you to search for reviews on specific companies and locate some new companies who you may wish to work with. This will showcase tons of companies and include reviews from real people who have used their services.
Using these methods will give you a number of companies that you can carry out a bit more research into. During your research you are going to want to be looking at the amount of experience that a company holds, the credentials they have, and even search review websites for reviews from customers that they have dealt with in the past. This research process should give you the contact details of a number of companies that you want to get in touch with. Read more about how to find the right bathroom installer.
Once you have the contact details of some specific companies that you could potential work with it is time to get in touch with them. Your aim here is to set up a consultation. This will be a no obligation consultation and the idea of this is to see whether you have a rapport with a particular bathroom fitter.
During the consultation you are going to want to be sharing the ideas that you have for your dream bathroom. You want to be talking about the sorts of things that you will be doing with it. You will quickly determine whether you are on the same wave length as them. It does not matter if they are the best bathroom fitters in the world. If you are not on the same wave length then it will not be a good experience working with them. In fact, the chances are that you are going to end up with a bathroom that you are not happy with. And always remember that a new fitted bathroom is a very good way to add value to your property
If you are lucky then you will identify a few London bathroom fitters who you have a rapport with. This is absolutely brilliant as it means you have a choice of who to work with. In this case most people take a little look at the price of each company’s service and opt for whoever is cheaper. You do not need to go down this route, although of course it is going to save you a considerable amount of money and having a professional bathroom installation carried out is not as cheap as it seems!
