8 Questions to ask your Brisbane Bathrooms Renovator

Whether you have decided to take on a remodelling project or you are looking to improve the value of your Brisbane home, it’s critical for you to find the right Brisbane bathroom renovator to get the job done on time & on budget.

Here is a list of the most important questions to ask when sourcing your Brisbane Bathrooms contractor.

1. What is your license and/or ABN number?

Make sure you engage with a contractor that is a legitimate business. When you have a contractor’s ABN number, you can perform an ABN lookup to confirm that the ABN is valid and it is an operating business. Most reputable building companies will also have a valid Queensland Building and Construction Commission license number (QBCC). You can search for active QBCC licenses here.

TAP Bathrooms ABN number is 42155580715.


TAP Bathrooms, our trading name also has an Open Builders license with the QBCC under our Torfar Construction Pty Ltd Business Registry. This is a wonderful point of difference for us, it means we have the necessary licenses to perform any renovations to Low or Medium Rise buildings without restriction. Our QBCC number is 1220437.


We are also proud members of the Master Builders Association.

2. Are you a stable, reliable company or a sole trader?

When looking for a Brisbane Bathrooms renovator, make sure you have a look at their projects, check out their reviews and ensure they have relevant and up-to-date testimonials to give you that added peace of mind. If they are a sole trader, ensure they have the necessary qualifications to carry out all works required for your renovation. If their website has a Frequently Asked Questions section this may help answer some of your burning questions. 

TAP Bathrooms & Constructions has been renovating Brisbane Northside Bathrooms, Brisbane Southside Bathrooms and Brisbane City Bathrooms for over 25 years. Our specialised team have the expertise to handle both small or large renovations or remodels.

Our owner Leo Torrisi is always contactable and you can view some of our latest work. Leo is a master builder with an open builder’s license, meaning he has the expertise to renovate bathrooms & kitchens across residential and commercial properties.

3. What type and how much insurance do you carry?

By law, building contractors must carry liability, disability and worker’s compensation.
TAP Bathrooms has total public liability coverage of $20 million for work on any home or commercial renovations.

This gives our clients complete confidence in the unlikely event of an on-site accident.

4. What is your warranty on labour and materials?

Undertaking a bathroom renovation or remodel can be expensive depending on your requirements.
Therefore you should ensure your contractor offers some kind of labour or manufacture warranty for the works should anything require fixing after the job is complete due to a faulty part or works.

TAP Bathrooms provides all of our clients with a 6.5-year warranty on all labour as part of our Master Builders Association affiliation for all our kitchen, home & bathroom renovation costs. We only deal with manufacturers who provide a minimum 12-month warranty on their products.

5. Are you affiliated with the Master Builders Association? 

With more than 8,500 members, Master Builder Association (MBA) is the peak industry association representing building construction in Queensland since 1882. While this is not a requirement for home improvement businesses or contractors, members agree to abide by strict business practices and resolve any complaints quickly and fairly.

TAP Bathrooms have been members of the MBA since 2010. We are proud advocates of the Master Builders Association and encourage potential clients to visit their site for more information.


6. Do you have references relevant to my project?

Past performance is always the best indicator to show the quality of work and craftsmanship. Ensure you ask contractors for any visuals of their prior work so you can see they have done legitimate recent work locally on Brisbane Bathrooms. Testimonials are also a great indicator of a contractor’s experience and can highlight other important factors like responsiveness, authenticity and trustworthiness.

TAP Bathrooms prides itself on transparency, we document our projects with photos that capture the work accomplished – from before to during and after. Our clients have also provided us with testimonials and five-star Google reviews.

7. Who will handle the day-to-day of my project?

Most larger contractors will have a Project Manager who is knowledgeable and take you through the entire process so you have the confidence to commence works. You will want to ensure that your project is a priority and that the contractor is not overextended.

TAP Bathrooms projects are all overseen by our owner, Leo Torrisi who will act as your primary Project Manager who will be responsible for every phase of construction from demolition to completion.

Leo brings 25+ years of experience in construction management and is an advocate of ongoing training of our staff and contractors, which is essential for our ever-changing industry.

8. How long will a Bathroom Renovation take to complete?

Most contractors for Brisbane bathroom renovations will say roughly 2-3 weeks from beginning to end. However, most schedules need to factor in the time of everyone involved and consider how long it takes to design, order and receive materials. Any approvals/permits should also be considered for non-homeowners or commercial properties.

Therefore all projects are dependent on your individual requirements.
Ensure your contractor doesn’t sell their time short or it could affect your own comfort & living arrangements.

An added benefit of employing a larger, established Brisbane bathroom renovation business like TAP is that our crews are always available to start projects. At present we currently handle 2-3 individual bathroom projects per week but looking to scale our team in 2021. This is to ensure that no customers of TAP Bathrooms are held up or delayed due to a lack of manpower. We have an excellent track record for completing projects on time, and we often surprise our customers by finishing the job earlier than expected.
