According to real estate agents, the bathroom and kitchen are the two areas of the house that most impact the price and popularity of a home for sale. In addition, the bathroom tends to be one of the first rooms of the home to deteriorate—especially if the house itself is old or made with cheaper construction materials.  

Once you’ve noticed signs of wear and tear in your bathroom, it’s a good time to consider a fresh, new bathroom remodeling project. At Bath Planet of Chicago, we understand what it takes to execute a perfect renovation—whether the client wants a simple one-day bath remodel, a beautiful wall surrounds installation, or a full, luxury bathroom makeover. Finding the right company that will work to meet your needs is essential to the remodeling process, which is why our company is adamant about providing the personalized service our customers require to get the results they want.

Unfortunately, not all remodeling companies have the homeowner’s best interests in mind, or the experience necessary for a successful renovation. In this article, we will share the best ways to research for reliable bathroom remodeling companies for your bathroom remodel, so that you can feel confident when planning your next bathroom upgrade.

Ask Around: Get Referrals from People You Trust

Seek out the advice of your family, friends, co-workers and even neighbors if you want to get honest reviews on certain companies that they have had previous experience in. The difference between word of mouth and the client testimonials on a contractor’s website is that only the good side will be posted on the website. On the other hand, when you ask people you know regarding their experience, you will be able to know both the good and bad sides. Also, your closest social network wouldn’t recommend a contractor that isn’t reliable.

Find a Contractor on the Internet

These days, everyone’s online. Bathroom remodelers are no exception, and it’s safe to say that most—if not all reputable contractors have websites where the services and perks of working with them are laid out in great detail. This means you can look for local companies providing the  services you need by simply doing a Google search for businesses in your area. Aside from browsing through the official website, it is also recommended to check for its registration or licenses to know if the company is legit and to scour the internet for third-party reviews of the company from past clients.

Check Out the Newspaper

This may seem old-fashioned, but the classified ads on newspapers can still provide useful information and ads for local services in your area. However, once you find a contractor that might be a good fit, make sure that you check online if the company has a full website or any third-party reviews to learn more about the company. Alternatively, you can book a meeting with one of their representatives to obtain further details about bathroom remodeling and to address all questions or concerns that you might have regarding your project.
