Hire Contractors Without Feeling Ripped Off

One of the toughest and most expensive rooms in any house to remodel is the bathroom. Trying to decide which flooring, counter tops, shower, tub, mirrors, toilet and fixtures to use, it all adds up to a whopping amount. And if you are unsure on how to go about completing all of this work, you could possibly end up doubling that cost by having to fix errors or mistakes you might make along the way. So it comes down to hiring someone to get the job done, but where do you start? Contractors are a dime a dozen, and you always want assurance you are not getting ripped off.

Here is a Tacoma customer looking for a remodeled bathroom who learned the easiest way to hiring a professional for her needs. She turned to MiNeeds, which is a website where customers can post their needed services and invite professionals to bid on them. As soon as she posted her need, all of the professionals providing home repair services were automatically alerted and given the chance to submit a proposal. Seventeen bids later, the customer had a wide array of options to pick from. With different pricing options made available to her, she was able to select the amount that coincided with her budget. She was also given a tip from one of the other MiNeeds customers. This gave her some additional information that she could use in making her decision, ensuring that she would not get over priced or cheated in some way.

Next time you walk into your bathroom, give it a thorough evaluation, taking into consideration the cost of each item you wish to replace and the value of having it done right by a professional. You can then take a look through these providers offering home repair services and get a feeling of what’s out there. Finally, just post your need to let them know what you are looking for, and see what they can offer you.
