My wife and I have been home owners for 8 years. For nearly 6 months we had been looking for someone to do our bathroom renovation – our first renovation of any kind in the house.
Yet every place we approached disappointed us. Either the cost was too high ($25,000 was the highest); too cheap ($5,000 sounded pretty dodgy for all we were asking); the length of time to complete the job was too long (3 to 4 weeks); or the simple act of visiting the house to provide us with a quote couldn't be done without one of us having to take a day off work (one renovator actually said it wasn't worth his while to provide us with an out of hours or weekend quote because we were “small peanuts” and not worth his effort).
All that changed when we approached Mick at Sydney Budget Bathrooms. We had read all the positive testimonials on their website which made us feel we should give them a shot. Thank goodness we did. Mick came out to have a look at our washroom and provide us with a quote on a Sunday morning at 9am. Who does that in this day and age? Well, these guys do!
The quote we were provided turned out to be the exact price we paid: $13,000. No hidden costs; no padding of numbers; no surprises. Actually that’s not entirely true. There was a surprise. We had been told it would take between 2 to 3 weeks to complete the work: It took just 8 days. In that time, our existing bathroom was completely stripped bare and a beautiful new one created in its place. Even when it was discovered our existing shower drain pipe was half the 50mm it needed to be, it was simply replaced in a matter of hours and at no extra cost to us. I’d have to say the best thing about these guys is their communication.
Mick called or sent text messages nearly every day, letting us know what was happening and asking if we had any concerns. He visited our home several times (again, out of hours and on the weekend) and was pleasant, courteous and engaging at all times. We love our new bathroom. It’s the nicest room in our 4 bedroom house in Dundas. And it’s all down to the fantastic job Mick and his crew at Sydney Budget Bathrooms did.
We’re looking forward to working with Mick again when we renovate our kitchen next year.
