Planning to Remodel the Bathroom of Your Home on New York City’s Upper West Side? Make Sure Your Estimate Includes These Factors
If you’re planning to remodel a bathroom in your home on the Upper West Side of New York, the challenges you’ll face are likely to be very different from those of a homeowner in one of the suburbs. Most urban homeowners live in apartments, condos, or co-ops in multiunit buildings, and many of those buildings were constructed decades ago. If you’re living in a home like this, your bathroom may not have been updated for quite some time – maybe not ever. This means you’ll want to be prepared for the possibility of surprises, such as rotten wood or other unseen structural damage that may come to light when your contractor starts removing your floor and wall tiles, tub, and shower.
There are a number of other factors that you’ll want to discuss with your contractor before you start on your bathroom remodel. An experienced home improvement contractor should be familiar with:
- Building code regulations that may apply to your upgrade
- Municipal permitting requirements
- The need to coordinate any water shutoffs and construction work with your building superintendent
- The requirements for waterproofing your bathroom remodel to protect your space and other parts of the building from leaks and mold growth
It’s important to discuss these aspects of your bathroom remodel, whether you or your contractor will handle them, and whether they are services that are included in your estimate.
