After some negotiating and a little competition, we were able to get the price down a little, but not much
My husband and I spent weeks meeting with contractors and attempting to get a reasonable quote for our bathroom remodel. We wanted to completely gut our primary bathroom to create something more functional. We also wanted our new bathroom to feel like an oasis at a spa. It would be a place where we could rest and feel peace after a long day at work. The problem we were having wasn’t about the price as much as it was about getting someone who was comfortable doing a radiant heated floor installation. The two of us dreamed of having a warm and cozy floor in our primary bathroom. A lot of the contractors didn’t have experience with radiant heated floors and they were uncomfortable doing them. There were two contractors who said they were certified in radiant heated flooring, but their prices were outrageous. We anticipated the high prices for materials, but we weren’t expecting such a high price for the labor. Unfortunately, they were the only two contractors in our area who were certified and willing to install the radiant heated flooring that we wanted. After some negotiating and a little competition, we were able to get the price down a little, but not much. Looking back, I would still pay the same amount of money because our new heated floors in the bathroom are perfect and exactly what we were looking for in our spa-like bathroom. The radiant heated floors are the shining star in our house now and everyone enjoys them.
