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

In order to be better prepared than 80% of home owners, build an Ideabook on Houzz.com

This allows for two things:

  1. You'll select what you like and don't like in each photo. You'll be able to add a note or caption so you remember exactly which feature you liked within that photo.
  2. You'll gain clarity on the entire look and functionality, vs. having a bunch of unrelated ideas. As you select photos 12, 13, 14, and 15, you'll start to see themes and you'll be excited to go back and delete some of the first photos you selected because they no longer fit your aesthetic!

Instructions:

Create Your Ideabook

  • Get Ideas>Bathroom>Use filters if desired>Hover over the photo>Click Save>Add notes on the photo>Drop down menu> + Create New>Save!
  • Repeat for all photos as desired.

Two Tips To Remodel Your Bathroom and Save Time Too

If you're one of the tens of thousands of San Diego home owners pricing out your bathroom remodel because you've been home so much more, you're in the right place!

Most San Diego home owners start in the information-gathering stage. Once they feel they have a lay of the land, they are ready to begin talking with trusted contractors to start getting estimates.

Whether you are kicking tires or ready to start, these two tips to remodel and save money too are for you!

  1. Get started, stay started – (but how?)
  2. Pick timeless options – (but which ones?)

Join us, read on!

1. Attack Your Bathroom, Attack Your Mindset

You’ve got two options when take care of a remodel. These two options are comparable to taking care of the grocery list.

Option 1: “I can go to these 5 stores to get the absolute lowest price on each item.”

When you’re finished, you’ll have bragging rights about getting the lowest possible price. But you’ll be exhausted and the groceries won’t be put away.

Or

Option 2: “I can figure out the best store for overall value, and get everything there because the efficiency is worth it to me.”

When you’re finished, you’ll have bragging rights about having the best possible experience and begin able to get back to the rest of your day, week, and life.

Not one single person LIVES grocery shop but it must be done. When you save time and energy, you move forward and end up happier!

You must choose the mindset in Option 1, or the mindset in Option 2 and remain committed to it.

The fate of your remodel hangs in the balance…(dun dun dun*).

2. Pick Timeless Options

Use Modern Waterproofing Techniques

For decades the traditional method of waterproofing a shower pan was the "hot mop" technique.

The process of hot mopping is essentially applying a coat of hot tar over the shower pan area. Once it dries there the tar is waterproof and will supposedly prevent leading for decades.

This method however is:

  1. Outdated, there have been better options available for MANY years.
  2. Tar smells terrible for a few days after application. Who wants to toxify their family's breathing air for the weekend?...
  3. The tile installer cannot begin right away, but must wait a day or two for it to fully cure.
  4. There is no warranty. Eventually it dries out and becomes brittle. Finally, it cracks which leads to the dreaded leak that you can't detect until it is too late.

There are several less toxic methods of waterproofing. They also happen to be more efficient, since tile can be installed same-day. This efficiency ends up saving you labor, which saves you money.

Call today to find out more about our waterproofing, or visit https://www.schluter.com/schluter-us/en_US/ for some ideas and photos. Need a lifetime warranty? No problem.

Select Matching Shower Heads 

If you get dual shower heads installed, you'll put yourself in a great position to experience the following:

  1. Increased resale value, you deserve to get the most out of your investment!
  2. A smooth morning routine, all successful people have mastered their mornings!
  3. Your preferred water flow!... one partner prefers rain fall which is always a low-pressure flow. The other partner often prefers a traditional shower head that allows more water pressure.

The feedback that we get from our families is that even if you use it 40% of the time, it will still be worth it. Often they report that they can't believe how much more frequently they use it, compared to what they expected.

Love to do activities together? Dual shower heads are the answer for:

  1. Getting cleaned up to go out to dinner...no need to be late for those reservations!
  2. Returning from the gym together, get cleaned up and get on with your day!
  3. Returning from a trip to the beach together, you do NOT need to track sand all over the house while you wait for the shower
