Reading between the lines of a tub reglazing cost estimate
When shopping around for a professional to reglaze your bathtub, take care to understand the specifics of cost estimates most tradesmen provide for free. A reliable quote will provide estimates for costs like materials/equipment, worksite preparation, labor setup time, and, of course, an hourly charge for the actual bathtub reglazing process. Most upstanding professionals will also provide you with an itemized estimate that breaks down the price for each service and what it includes. Equally important to know is what is NOT included in the cost estimate. For instance, costs for testing and/or hazardous material remediation and permit or inspections fees, often required by municipalities, are typically not included for basic work performed by a qualified professional. Home improvement industry leaders recommend using a reputable, certified professional and knowing the what is covered and what is not covered in the cost estimate before work begins. It is important to familiarize yourself with that is included in the service you plan on purchasing, it could save your a costly surprise down the road. Just think of your estimate like an iceberg, there is more than what meets the eye.
