Please be as detailed as possible.
Who buys the fixtures.
How much of the bathroom is tiled.
To what extent the old bathroom will be demolished.
How much insulation will be added.
Will permits be pulled? Who will be responsible for inspections?
Ventilation? How much and where?
WHEN THE WORK WILL BE DONE
and quzlity subs. And in EY, avodah ivrit is worth every shekel, and can save heartache and trouble down the road,
The demolition garbage container, penalty clause for missing deadline, NO demolition until everything is ordered and delivered (otherwise they demolish your bathroom and don’t come back for three weeks).
Hanging the medicine cabinets
Electric outlets and switches
windows & doors
Lead pan under shower and tub
And BTW pay for all the raw materials yourself so they can’t put a lien on your house if your contractor doesn’t pay the store. Pay all the subs yourself as well. Make copies of all the checks you pay out and keep clear and concise records. Write everything down including names, times and phone numbers.
Never get ahead of yourself. Make a payment schedule. Pay “x” amount after demolition. “X” after laying tiles. etc. If they didn’t lay the tiles don’t give them the money you were supposed to give them for laying the tiles. If they didn’t install the fixtures don’t give them the money until they are in and work well. Don’t finish paying them until everything is completed to your satisfaction.
aries2756 and all, Thanks! the “Lead pan under shower and tub” (is what most people have or) is that above and beyond the norm? Contractor says he never does that, never heard of that. He heard of lead pans under washing machines.
