Like the old saying goes: if it’s too good to be true, then it probably is. This is especially true for a bathroom remodel or any home improvement project in general. There are several reasons why home builders would submit an unusually low bid.
One of the main reasons why disreputable home builders might be able to offer low bids is because they intend to use low-quality building materials. When it comes to bathroom remodeling, it is always important to get the highest quality materials that you can afford. Simply put: you get what you pay for, and cheap, subpar materials will most likely break down and require a replacement not long after they are installed. This will cost you more money in the long run.
Lack of Experience
A company that is just starting out may offer a low bid to attract more customers. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing and does not mean that the company is shady or is out to pull a fast one on you, it could, however, mean that the company does not have enough experience and is more likely to commit rookie mistakes that a more experienced company simply does not make. To make sure that the project goes smoothly, it is best to hire an established contractor with years of experience under their belt.
Another reason why a contractor might be able to offer a low bid is by skipping after-sales benefits, such as warranties. Whether it be replacement windows, roofing shingles or fixtures for your bathroom, it is always important to have a solid warranty in case you have problems in the future.
