Find A Bathroom Fitter

MyBuilder.ComMyBuilder.Com can help you take the worry out of finding a local, reputable bathroom fitter.

 

This service is FREE and easy to use. It’s a new hassle free way to find a bathroom fitter and best of all you save time, money and get competitive quotes from the comfort of your home.

If you are planning a new bathroom, en-suite or cloakroom and looking for an installer then our first piece of advice is – look for a bathroom fitter not a Plumber – or you need plumber who is very familiar with bathroom installations.

A good bathroom fitter will be able to undertake plumbing, tiling, carpentry and a number of other related tasks / trades with great competency. A plumber will not always be as diverse or competent in multiple trades. Always bare this in mind as it could be the success or failure of your project.

If you are just looking to refresh or update your bathroom with new taps or a shower for example then using a local, competent plumber should be fine. If you don’t know any plumbers then again mybuilder.com can help you find a reputable plumber.

Things to consider when hiring a bathroom fitter (or plumber)

Your project will always take longer than anticipated and cost more than expected. Always have a contingency sum for unexpected problems that will inevitably arise (allow a minimum of 10% of your total project cost).

Deciding who to use:

  • Get written quotes from at least 3 bathroom fitters / plumbers
  • If your tradesman cannot provide a quote – DO NOT HIRE THEM
  • Beware of the super cheap quote – if it looks too good to be true it generally is…
  • Same can be said for the really expensive price – clearly they have not listened to your spec’ if they are that much more than everyone else
  • Having work done in your home is always difficult and none more so than the bathroom or kitchen, make sure you choose a tradesman you feel comfortable with
  • Always get references, talk to previous customers, get reviews

Working with your bathroom fitter:

  • Always get a schedule of works
  • Always agree a payment schedule – this should fall inline with the schedule of works and be realistic
  • For larger projects sign a contract
  • Stick to any agreed payment schedules, always pay on time
  • Discuss any concerns early – don’t leave it to boil over before approaching your bathroom installer
  • Be respectful and always compliment good work – tradesmen can be very temperamental!!

Planning is crucial to the success of your project and once you settle on a design try wherever possible not to change it, particularly once your project starts. Do plenty of research and be realistic with your ideas, especially in terms of space. Take a look at our bathroom design guide for ideas and more advice.

In our experience a project will always take longer than anticipated and cost more than expected. The beginning of your project will move like a roller coaster, the middle is the worst, everything seems to come to a standstill – be patient here and always discuss concerns with your bathroom installer.
