Contract the trades you want
Do you know a tiler that you would like to use? Having friends and relatives in trades can be very helpful when deciding which contractors to use. Depending on the type of trade and their experience, some may even guide you towards other contractors that they recommend which can make your job even easier.
The general rule of thumb for hiring trades is acquiring 3 quotes to compare. When comparing quotes it is not only important to look at the price but understand what exactly their including in their price. Some may add materials others may require you to source materials which then you will have to factor in costing for that.
*TIP – When recieving quotes make sure you do your checks on the contractor to ensure they are licensed and certified. The last thing you want is someone doing a dodgy job and leaving a mess for you to repair shortly after.
