When you remodel your bathroom with one of the large home center chain stores, you will be dealing with an independent contractor and not the chain itself when it comes to getting your bathroom installed. Watch for these common problems and take steps if they occur, because the home center chain will do nothing.
If the contractor is dragging his feet, shows up only a couple of times a week, always with an excuse as to why, and promises things will get moving again soon, don’t buy it! Wishing and hoping is not going to change anything.
If a contractor asks you to pre-pay for a portion of the job he has yet to complete or start for any reason he gives, don’t be foolish and hand the money over. He hasn’t earned it yet, and it’s a sign the contractor is in some financial trouble. Which means you better get prepared for the worst.
If the contractor asks for more money for something he screwed up and has to re-do, please don’t give it to him. That’s his problem and most reputable contractors know that. You’ll likely not see him again because he doesn’t know how to fix it and you’ll be frantically trying to track him down.
If you don’t understand anything the contractor is talking about, ASK! Don’t just let it blow over, because you figure it’s not important. Find out what the terms he uses mean to you and your project. Many people have told us that they didn’t understand what the contractor was talking about when he discussed something, only to later find that it was something they didn’t want or that became a problem.
