How to Choose the Best Builder to Build Your Bathroom

Are you thinking about adding a new bathroom to your home or changing the bathroom that you currently have in your home? If so, you want to be certain it is built by people who are reliable and will do a high quality job. Below are some of the best ways you can ensure that you choose the best builder to build your bathroom.

Services Provided

Some builders specialise in a specific service or trade. However, when you are building a bathroom, different construction professionals are required, such as a plumber, electrician, tiler, carpenter and bricklayer.

It’s usually better to hire a builder who provides all of these services, rather than hiring different individuals because there is less confusion and the projects these all-in-one builders deliver should not cost as much.


The construction industry is notorious for projects that run over budget. However, this is a problem you can solve by sitting down with the people who will work for you and by drawing up a realistic plan for the work to be carried out on your bathroom. Once you have a detailed and realistic plan, it focusses the mind more and you take control of the situation instead of your builder doing so.

Qualifications and Experience

The builder you hire has to be able to do the job and should have all the qualifications and experience needed to complete the building work in a professional and efficient manner. All of the people who work for the builder you choose should also have the necessary qualifications and experience.

Testimonials and Examples of Previous Work

When it comes to construction work ‘the proof of the pudding is in the eating’. The only true way to find out just how good a building company is, is to see examples of their previous work and if possible, talk to previous clients. This will give you a greater insight into the quality of their work, how they deal with their customers during a project and how they deal with them if things go wrong.

Materials Used

As well as providing top quality workmanship, your builder should also use high quality materials. Some builders cut corners or try to lower their own costs by using sub-standard materials, but there are ways you can tackle this problem.

Once again, when you sit down to plan your project, make sure you know what materials will be used. If possible, get this in writing and also keep a close eye on proceedings as your new bathroom takes shape.

When Things Go Wrong

Unfortunately, things can go wrong when you build a new bathroom. This is why your builder should be able to reassure you that they will be around to help you if things go wrong. This is something you should consider asking them to put into writing too, so that problems that do occur after they finish their worknwill be dealt with properly.

When you are looking for a builder to build your bathroom, make sure you take your time and weigh up your options. Following the advice above will ensure that this type of project runs as smoothly as possible.
