Hi, I’m a professional tiler and I go to a lot of people’s homes to measure and quote tiling their bathroom renovation. Many times, after I have submitted my quote, I hear “That’s too expensive, I can do it myself cheaper than that”. So, one day I wrote a letter so that when I hear “I can do it myself” I offer them a copy of my letter to read.
This is what the letter says:
“Hi there, I understand that you want to tile your own bathroom renovation, but I would strongly recommend hiring a professional tiler for the following reasons:
Quality of work: As a professional tiler, I have years of experience and training in the craft of tiling. I know how to properly lay tiles to ensure they are level, square, and securely attached. This means that your bathroom renovation will look beautiful and function well for years to come. In contrast, if you attempt to tile the bathroom yourself without the proper experience or training, you may end up with uneven or poorly installed tiles that could lead to problems down the line.
Time and cost savings: While it may seem like tiling your own bathroom renovation could save you money, it could actually end up costing you more in the long run. As a professional tiler, I have access to all the necessary tools and equipment needed to complete the job quickly and efficiently. This means that your bathroom renovation will be completed in a timely manner, saving you time and reducing the risk of costly mistakes.
Safety: Tiling can be a dangerous job, especially if you’re not familiar with the tools and equipment used. As a professional tiler, I have the necessary safety equipment and training to work safely and efficiently. If you attempt to tile the bathroom yourself without the proper safety precautions, you could risk injury or damage to your property.
Warranty: Finally, by hiring a professional tiler, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with a warranty. If anything goes wrong with the tiling job after completion, I will be there to fix it and ensure that your bathroom renovation meets your expectations.
So, in conclusion, while it may seem like tiling your own bathroom renovation could save you money, it’s important to consider the long-term benefits of hiring a professional tiler. If you want your bathroom renovation to look beautiful, function well, and stand the test of time, I would highly recommend hiring a professional tiler.”
I make sure my phone number is on the bottom of the letter and 9 times out of 10, I get the call to come back and do the job.
