Northern Rivers Bathroom Renovations

@lisofby see the comment above yours by @AllclassQualityConstructions, as stated each project is very individualised and is priced accordingly. For example, think of the materials plus labour involved for floor to ceiling tiles compared to just skirting tile, or even tile type, rectified or large format tiles take longer to lay plus uses more glue, therefore increasing both material and labour cost. (and that's just one aspect of the bathroom)

Also, it is important for homeowners to make sure the quotes they are getting compare Apples with Apples, so to speak. What is in one quote needs to be in the other quote to make it a fair comparison.

@cag63 We're sorry to hear that you have had some bad experiences with trades. Unfortunately, it does happen. My suggestion to you would be to do your homework on an individual tradesperson or business before you hire them to do any work. Look at online reviews, ask friends and family, even drop into your local supply stores such as tile stores or bathroom product suppliers etc, they will recommend a reputable tradesperson.
