It's October 2020 and you've got to get your bathrooms updated right away. Don't rush yourself; let us walk you through a few top concerns and what you should consider when selecting your contractor and selecting your finishes.

  1. Right up front - no need for three to five site visits
  2. Second -  How to choose your contractor 
  3. Third - How to choose your selections

Of course this year has not gone according to plan. But two things are for sure. There are still two and a half months left, and your triple bathroom remodel can definitely go according to plan.

You're in the right place! In this article, we'll show you where to start! 

Read on for the keys to a successful pre-construction and construction process.

Right Up Front - No Need For Three To Five Site Visits

We know. We see it every day.

Get a bunch of site visits booked, follow up to get a bunch of bids and then decide on the right guy. 

Sounds like a good idea but the truth is, you'll end up with an average contractor and larger-than-average problems. Que change order *buzzer*. 

The idea is this: Homeowner thinks, "I'll do my due diligence so I don't overspend"

The reality is this: Contractor thinks, "If I'm giving away free estimates all day long, then I'll just approximate and hopefully I get enough jobs to keep the doors open."

The result is this: Homeowner chooses based on price (mistake), the contractor gets on the job and starts to do due diligence at that point, and change orders are issued. This of course frustrates the homeowner to no end.

The solution is this: Slow down and breath when you're going to sit down and research contractors. Don't start making calls frantically over your lunch break. Take 30 minutes. Get organized. Single out a few contractors who look promising and move forward.

Wondering how do you move forward? Read on!

Second - How to Choose Your Contractor

You can whittle down your list of seven to ten contractors without any site visits.

Visit websites like homeadvisor.com, houzz.com, facebook.com, twitter.com, instagram.com and cslb.com to see if the contractors on your list are licensed, bonded, ensured, carrying workers comp insurance. 

Once you've done that, read their reviews online and have a conversation or two with each of them. For sure, you will have the list down to one or two.

Book your site visits with each of them and then make a decision and be at peace with it. Both companies are qualified pros.   

Once you choose your contractor, you'll begin working from the ballpark price range that was agreed upon, to get all your selections chosen and into your detailed, line-item estimate.

...Which brings us to selections!...

Second - How To Choose Your Selections

Instructions:

Best San Diego Contractor for a Small Bathroom Remodel

Hey, if you’re a San Diego homeowner and wondering if it's possible to begin a small bathroom remodel during this global pandemic and the Coronavirus, here are some questions you might also be considering:

  • what if I don't have any other bathrooms to use?
  • what if I have a leak - can I wait to have it repaired or will it cause more damage?
  • will I be putting the plumber or other crew members at risk?
  • how can I know when it's safe to begin work? 

We know you have questions. We do too. And the most important thing during this time is that we join together to stop the spread of the Coronavirus in it's tracks, so that we can flatten the curve, and all come out of quarantine asap. 

With that being said, construction is considered essential services so if there are emergent repairs or very functional remodel needs, it may be possible to get that process started. We would rather have your home repaired so you can stay inside, since going to a neighbor's home exposes them to trouble. 

Our crew would be wearing gloves, masks, ventilators, and other protective gear. Your neighbors may not have access to these items. In full transparency, the health ans safety of our crew and community is our #1 priority, so no business transaction or profit is ever worth the putting them in jeopardy. We would only begin a repair that was absolutely necessary.

In this article, we will answer a few questions so you can make a more informed decision about your small bathroom or other small construction project, and whether it can wait until life gets back to normal.

What If I Don't Have Any Other Bathrooms To Use?

In the case that you have only one bathroom, it is possible to get a remodel started to restore your bathroom to functionality, so you can remain in self-isolation. 

Ninety percent of the remodel/repair preparation can be done remotely, using zoom meetings or other video conferencing services. 

Your meetings can be scheduled in a cluster, or over the course of several days, whichever works for your schedule. All appointments would be Monday - Friday between 7:00 am and 3:30 pm.

Once we select the necessary materials, they can be ordered and your project timeline can be planned.

What If I Have A Leak - Can I Wait Or Will It Cause Damage?

If you see evidence of a past leak but the area is 100% dry, the repair can usually wait. The exception to this would be if there has been dry rot. If you have dry rot, the wood will be less, dense, more brittle, and structurally unsafe. LEAVE IT ALONE. Do not touch it or begin any type of demo on your own. Call today.

If the area is wet or if you see any signs of mold, then you have a major health concern in you home. Close off that area or room and do not let anyone get near it. You want to have this addressed as soon as possible. Mold is fungal, and we know that the appropriately named Coronavirus is viral. Do not give your immune system more battles to fight. Address this as soon as possible. 

Please be aware that framing requires a permit and inspection. Our wonderful public servants at municipal offices, including city halls and county buildings are already sacrificing to keep us moving forward as a community. Be patient during this time. Please join us in giving them grace.   

Will I Be Putting The Plumber Or Crew Members At Risk?

Some risk cannot be avoided. Our heroic doctors, nurses, first responders, law inforcement officers, and public servants are the ones taking on the most risk in order to protect and preserve health for the rest of us. 

All possible safety measures will be taken in order to mitigate the level of risk. Measures will include the top 5 and:

  • Wearing masks  
  • Keeping family away from containment area and keeping crew members away from family 
  • Verification that no member of the crew, the crews' family, or the clients' family is expressing symptoms
  • Asking questions to see if anyone in the household works around Coronavirus patients.
